4th of July Outfit Ideas

Fourth of July is fast approaching, which means barbeques, pool parties, fireworks shows, and many other celebratory activities to share with those you care about. But what do you wear to these occasions without blending into the crowd or not matching the theme? Here are three outfit ideas that I think would be perfect for the day we celebrate our independence.

ALL AMERICAN GIRL

Slub Knit V-Neck Tee [Burgundy/cream] - $10.90 (Forever 21)
Faux Leather Belt [White] – $7.90 (Forever 21)
High-Waisted Denim Shorts [Aqua] - $22.90 (Forever 21)
Low-Top Canvas Sneakers [Red] - $24.90 (Forever 21)

This compilation is best if you want to stick to the classics and you can’t possibly go wrong with a simple tee, shorts, and sneakers. The belt adds a little extra flair to this simple red, white, and blue ensemble and pulls it all together.

 

LADY LIBERTY

Tiered Maxi Dress [Sage green] – $45.00 (ASOS)
Tie Leg Wedges [Nude] – $60.00 (ASOS TAMBOURINE)
Bunting Back Hair Crown – $13.00 (ASOS)

This compilation leans more towards a dressier event, but still not so dressy that you can relax with your family and friends. The green maxi dress and pointed headband are shout outs to our lovely lady liberty and the nude wedges are simple, non-distracting, but gorgeous.

 

STAR SPANGLED

Mini Hoop Earrings [Silver] – $8.00 (Missguided)
Rib Asymmetric Hem Bodycon Dress [Blue] – $20.00 (Missguided)
Rounded Strap Barely There Sandals [Silver] – $32.00 (Missguided)

As the dressiest of the three compilation, this outfit is designed more for a special event rather than a daytime social, but it works seeing as how it was inspired by the night sky. The dark blue dress shows off your fabulous curves while the silver shoes and earrings give a wink of color to make you glint in the light like the star you are.

 

Happy Fourth of July!

 

Fashion Icon: Cher Horowitz

Cher Horowitz

The first fashion icon I will be covering is none other than the fabulous Cher Horowitz, Alicia Silverstone’s character in the 90s classic Clueless. Here are three reasons she was and still is so totally fashion forward.

1. She inspired some 90s style!

Despite what some may believe, the classic 90s style did not influence he movie Clueless. It was actually the other way around. Wearing knee socks in a completely unironic way wasn’t definitely not a thing until Cher came on the scene. She made what had once been considered a geeky look into something super cute and fashionable when worn with the right shoes and accessories.

 

2. She never wore the same outfit twice!

This is pretty common for most fictional characters because since it’s not the real world they don’t have to limit hem selves to what’s in their closet. But either way, Cher dressed in a manner that, although impractical for the average person (I think I would only be able to make it a month before having to repeat my outfits) she still had a set style that mimicked the way girls dress in real life. Once you find your niche why change it?

 

3. Her closet is to die for!

It actually pains me that there has yet to be a foolproof and perfect replica of Chet’s closet organization system. How great would it be if that were an actually thing?! Something apps come close, but nothing compares to that opening scene with Cher picking out her outfit for school that day. Though even with her organization system, she still faced the same problem a lot of girls have: so many clothes but nothing to wear!
