What to Wear: 4th of July Edition

June 20, 2020


Erin Schrader

Believe it or not [I’m verging on the not side], the 4th of July is going to be here soon. We’re talking weeks away. Which also means that our time to bust out our best patriotic looks is quickly emerging right alongside of it [and of course, the time where we get to make our most festive snacks as well — this Pinterest board will help]. Today I’m bringing you a few options of what to wear this 4th that will hopefully make as much of a statement as the fireworks popping off in your backyard. Whether you like to be casual [me] or get a little dressier [me in my dreams] there should be an option for you below!

Before we get into all of the outfits, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 135 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin! ps. If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes. Every Tuesday we send out the top deals on the internet and believe me, it’s good. Want in on the list? Sign up here!
