What I'd Wear: 4th of July

 

July 4

I can't think of another holiday where fashion-minded folk dress in theme in all seriousness. Ugly sweater parties and pilgrim plays aside, the 4th of July brings out our red, white and blue and it can get a little stale pulling out the denim, bandana, prints and stripes once more. So I thought, why not go a subtler route and give a nod with a pop of red accents and a chambray shirt, but make a pair of retro inspired shorts the main star. Thus we have our patriotism shown while enjoying a new take on an old holiday. This outfit will be perfect at a barbecue, beach bash, and all the way through the fireworks finale.
