July Fourth Lookbook

July Fourth Lookbook 2017 - StyleSprinter

Independence Day weekend is a perfect opportunity to demonstrate your skills of styling patriotic shades of red, white, and blue and make them your own. The trick to July Fourth look though is not to take the tricolor theme too literally; of course, if you don’t want to look like an American flag (then, go for it!). Today I’m collaborating with Rocket Dog, Kelsi Dagger, and Pour La Victoire, to share with my outfit ideas for the July Fourth weekend. Read up and let me know in the comments which outfit are you planning on rocking over the upcoming long weekend.

But before we begin, make sure to check out my summer vacation packing post where I share additional outfit ideas that you could use this summer. I also provide a capsule wardrobe of shoes and accessories that I wear this summer, both in New York and in the Hamptons. 

Look #1: Cocktail Party

Alexis Arleigh Dress in White - StyleSprinter

Pour La Victoire Elisa Sandal (40% off with the code FIREWORKS2017)
Alexis Arleigh Dress in White // Pineapple Clutch // Cat Eye Sunglasses

Call me old-fashioned, but I believe that Independence Day weekend is a perfect opportunity to look chic. While it’s tempting to wear jeans and a T-shirt all day long, there are some events out there that will require a more formal attire. Stay prepared by upgrading your collection with a white or red lace dress. A good thing about solid color dresses is that you can wear them all year long by switching accessories and makeup. Talking about accessories, I believe that it’s an absolute must for every lady to have a pair of nude heels in her wardrobe. That type of shoe is perfect because you could style it with different color dresses while enjoying an added benefit of nude heels—these make your legs look so much longer!

Look #2: Fireworks Watching 

HM Cute AF Top - Style Sprinter

Rocket Dog Magic Crush Velvet Sneaker (40% off sale items with code RDBLOWOUT40)
Cute AF Top // Stripe Skirt // Zac Posen Bag // Pink Sunglasses

Every summer in the Hamptons I see the exact same picture: ladies are taking their shoes off while watching fireworks as their feet is too tired to handle even a moment of high heels torture. Seeing that is sad and educational at the same time: if you don’t want to ruin your feet over the weekend, I highly encourage you to pack a pair of comfortable and stylish sneakers. That type of shoe is so much cuter than your typical flip-flops, not to mention that you can walk in sneakers faster while avoiding the pain of someone stepping on your feet in your open shoes. While white cropped pants and jeans are typical attire that you could see at the fireworks watching gatherings, I recommend thinking outside of the box and update your otherwise casual look with a stripe pleated skirt. You’ll be surprised how this single piece of clothes changes the appearance of the entire outfit and immediately makes it so chic.

Look #3: Party Time

Lovers + Friends Havana Maxi Dress - StyleSprinter

ESxRD Copa Pink & White Platform Sandal (40% off sale items with code RDBLOWOUT40)
Lovers + Friends Havana Maxi Dress // Pineapple Clutch // Mirror Sunglasses //Headband Worn as Belt

For many of us, high heels are something that goes hand in hand with partying. We master the art of walking on our toes while maneuvering cobblestone roads and Epsom salting feet the moment we get home in attempt to relieve the pain… I’ve been (and still am) one of those girls who loves heels, but lately I’ve been more and more into platform shoes. These look cute and stylish, add you a few inches of height (which is crucial for petite girls like me), and save you from unnecessary pain. One of the combinations that I recommend to try this July Fourth weekend is combining a maxi dress with a pair of platform sandals. The dress you see in these photos features a split which makes it super floaty and fun while also allowing to demonstrate the beauty of my new favorite stripe sandals.

Look #4: Shopping Trip

Alexis Briley Stripe Dress - July Fourth Outfit Ideas 2017

Rocket Dog Clarita Peach Slip-On (40% off sale items with code RDBLOWOUT40)
Alexis Briley Stripe Dress // Popsicle Clutch // Urban Outfitters Glasses

We all love Independence Day sales, right? And while most of the best deals are available online, every summer I catch myself going to the actual store to look for some excellent deals. While doing so, it’s important to look stylish—while enjoying the comfort of loose-fitting clothes and comfortable shoes. While it’s tempting to put on a pair of white jeans and a cute T-shirt and call it a look, I prefer wearing dresses while shopping. In my experience, it’s so much easier to take it off and put back on while trying outfits at the store. Also, such outfit is just more comfortable than wearing pants if it’s getting too hot outside.

Look #5: Breakfast Club

Light Blue Ruffle Dress - Style Sprinter

Kelsi Dagger BK Harbor Sandal (40% off sale items with the code KDBFIREWORKS2017)
Light Blue Ruffle Dress // Pineapple Clutch // Mirror Sunglasses

One of the mistakes I used to make while packing for a long weekend in the Hamptons is not planning my breakfast outfits. While it’s tempting to make an excuse that you “don’t do fashion until coffee,” it makes sense to plan mornings as meticulously as you plan evenings. All you have to do is to pack a casual mini dress and a pair of comfortable slip-ons. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been wearing these gold slides non-stop this season and for a good reason. You don’t even need to lace them while getting ready for a brunch. Get your hair in a pony, put a dress on, slide into your sandals—and you are ready to go out for coffee!

    None of these outfits is your average July 4 look! You are so good at styling and I just love every look. So chic, so cute and so holiday appropriate. My favorites have to be numbers 1, 2 and 4. All these dresses (and skirt) would be great for all year round, I agree with you we just need to switch up accessories and makeup. Also dresses are better for shopping to get in and out, that is so true!

    This lookbook is so good! Every outfit looks, as your tee says, “Cute AF.”
    I went with wearing all blue, I usually don’t do the whole “flag thing.”
    I especially love the cocktail look and the shopping trip. The neck detail on the striped dress is everything!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love this post and so jealous of you spending it in the Hamptons! You’re so right. There are so many cute ways to wear all these colors without going over the top. I love how you broke it down. My favorite is the blue and white striped dress! I would totally wear that outfit. Hope you have a Happy 4th of July!

    Spending 4th of July in the Hamptons is a dream of mine yet to come true and I’m ever so envious you’re heading there, but you’re totally worth it. You’re quite right, dressing patriotic doesn’t mean you need to pull out every freaking star and striped piece in your wardrobe even though I love your striped skirt with the sneakers (that’s probably what made that my favorite outfit). As for me living overseas and actually working on the 4th I’ll still try to incorporate some of that red, white and blue into my outfit as an homage to my second home, the United States of America.

    You are just the cutest with all of these July 4th outfit inspirations. I love the first lace dress, it reminded me of My Fair Lady. The red and blue outfit looks wonderful as well, especially that multi-colored wedge sandal, it looks amazing.

    Omg, I can’t decide which is my favorite look because they are all so different yet all so amazing in their own way! Love all the dresses and the skirt with the casual tee is totally cute too. I also agree that you don’t need to wear red, white and blue all at once to look like a flag or cheesy and these outfits definitely incorporate the colors but are so fab! xoxo, Christine
