How to Nail 4th of July Fashion Without Looking Basic
Glamazons, Holidays, we love them, right? But there’s always the risk of dressing up and looking super corny, or like you tried too hard. Whenever there’s a holiday with a color theme (think St. Patrick’s Day or 4th of July), things can get cheesy pretty quickly. I avoid that by dressing how I would any day — but in colors that just so happen to fit with the holiday in question. For 4th of July last year, I chose the Zara denim off-the-shoulder dress that I wish I could wear everyday (seriously, it’s so comfortable — and it’s sold out but I found a similar version here). I just paired that with a flag clutch from American Apparel, RIP (similar), and my Aldo striped pumps (similar) and bam, I found the perfect 4th of July outfit while staying 100% true to my everyday style. I think that’s easier to do than you think: this season is all about navy and white shirting, white shoes (more on this later), red statement earrings, Baywatch-inspired swimsuits, and those Everlane red pumps that have a thousand-person waiting list (including me). All of that lends itself to stylish 4th of July dressing. I’ve rounded up my 40+ faves in the collage below and I’m obsessed with every piece, just click to shop!

This year, I’m spending the holiday in New Orleans for Essence Festival, reuniting with my best friends, hopefully running into Oprah and Mama Tina Knowles-Lawson again (casual!), and eating so much great food. Then, I’m back to New Jersey to spend the actual July 4th holiday with my family — and hopefully find a pool party to crash, and I’ll be wearing a full red, white and blue outfit with no shame. Yes, I’m that girl who gets themed napkins for the holidays (LOL) and I’m not embarrassed about it at all. I’m planning to wear this amazing Michelle Obama 2020 shirt I got in Vegas, a red/white skirt from the Zara sale, and my white pumps. Will share pictures after!
