As per tradition, each of us here always styles a look for an occasion, whether it’s Halloween, New Years Eve or Independence Day (like this one), we always make sure that the look is centred around the theme. Since the 4th of July is very patriotic and American, these looks are made up of red, white and blue pieces, just like the American flag. Each of us took a shade of denim and this is what we came up with!
For my outfit above, I chose the Frame Denim Le Color Rip skinny jeans in Blanc as the base as my denim option was white. I think these are a great white skinny and the rips just add that little bit of casualness to the overall feel. I then paired the jeans with a sleeveless Equipment shirt in red, and chose a YSL Navy Clutch, completing the red, white and blue combination. For the shoes, I wanted a classic black heel to dress things up so I went with the Gianvito Rossi black suede pumps. I wanted to keep the jewellery minimal, meaning I only opted for a single gold bangle by Jeweliq. Finally, as I’m being very patriotic (despite being British), I chose an American flag headband, just to have some fun with the look.
As 4th of July is a holiday that basically revolves around BBQ and the pool, I did a look that will suit both activities for the men. I chose a more affordable denim shirt choice by River Island to pair with a pair of swimming trunks by RVCA. I absolutely love RVCA’s trunks, so I definitely recommend these. As many will be going in and out of the pool, practical shoes are a necessity. I chose a pair of driving shoes by Tod’s. Then of course to finish it all off, a pair of classic Ray-Bans. It won’t be a summer event without sunglasses.
I wanted to focus my 4th of July outfit around a casual setting and style something that would be perfect for the beach or a BBQ. I chose this Isabel Marant print dress because the blue and white print is so fresh. It is a great light piece that would work both as a dress or swim suit cover up. I layered this red Marc by Marc Jacobs denim jacket over the dress, which would be perfect for when temperatures drop during the evening. I loved the patriotic touch of the gold and stars on these Loeffler Randall sandals and the functionality of this straw cross body bag from Scoop. I added a little luxurious touch with these gold and moonstone earrings from Monica Vinader.
