Just like a little kid counting down the days until her next three day weekend, we cannot wait for the 4th of July to be here! Take a long, luxurious weekend this independence day, but make sure you do it in style. Whether your holiday plans consist of lounging on the beach, outdoor barbecuing or (God forbid) going into the office, we have something for everyone.
No matter what the occasion may be, a little white dress is always up for the task. If your 4th of July plans consist of lounging around and enjoying the sun, opt for something like this simple, flirty summer dress from Templerley London Resort 2012 collection. A solid white dress is a great starting piece for a fabulous July 4th wardrobe. Now, add some color into your look by sporting a navy blue 3.1 Phillip Lim leather tote or keep it simple with a turquoise Diane Von Furstenburg clutch. All that's left to do is put on some red lipstick and a pair of black heels and you're all set to celebrate America's independence in style.
If you love the tabula rosa-ness of a white dress, but are in need of something a little more dressy try a maxi-dress made of gauzy fabric like this one from Christian Dior Resort 2012. Have some fun by adding Alexandre Birman's bright blue booties to your ensemble. The strong contrast of the bright blue against the sharp white of the dress just screams "Go America!". Even Uncle Sam would be impressed by this amount of patriotism.
For those of you planning on having a truly spectacular star-spangled 4th, you are definitely going to need a dress that can handle that kind of fabulous. We love, love, love this Donna Karan Resort 2012 dress. It is the perfect amount of wonderful, breezy, and flirty all wrapped into one. This dress would look amazing with red lipstick (a must have for the 4th no matter what you are wearing) and bright cerulean accessories. You could also opt for pink accessories, like Giorgio Armani's unicorn necklace, if you want to take a different spin on the typical red, white and blue theme. Just imagine how adorable one would look perched on the edge of a boat with this decadent ruffled dress blowing in the breeze!
