So, to celebrate the 4th, here are a few last-minute outfit inspirations, whether you’re kicking back poolside or watching the fireworks from a rooftop lounge.
1. Backyard BBQ
Most celebrations on the 4th tend to lean towards more casual- every year I end up having a bathing suit under whatever I wear since we end up in the pool before the day is over. These firework-printed Lilly shorts are sure to match the night sky, and a breezy white tank ensures you won’t be sweaty throughout the day. Add in a pair of jelly sandals and you’re sure to survive the grass and poolside patio through the night.
2. On the Lake
If, like me, you will be spending the weekend at the lake (or the beach), you’ll want to be comfortable and not too fussy. I always opt for denim shorts and a hat to keep the sun off my face- add in these super cute Jeffrey Campbell nautical-inspired espadrilles to dress it up just a tad.
