The first week of July marks a summer recess for many: a few days off of work spent basking under the sun and eating an obligatory 4th of July hotdog. The line is fine between looking fashionably patriotic or like a human American flag. Luckily, a few helpful styling tips will teeter you away from the latter. Celebrate the 4th in pieces that will take you from a day at the pool to late-night firework displays.

ALL-DAY POOL PARTY
When choosing your look for an all-day pool party, treat printed one-pieces as chic bodysuits. Fashionable and practical. “The Jackie” from Solid & Striped is the perfect piece to wear chatting along the pool’s edge, or for a quick dip in the water. Choosing a large graphic print with hints of red gives a nod to the holiday with an essence of cool street style. Tuck yours into relaxed-fit jeans and accessorize with vibrant red sunglasses.

THE BACKYARD BBQ
By now, everyone is in on the secret – printed sundresses are summer’s best friend! And no one does easy dresses better than Réalisation, the go-to brand for street style royalty Emily Ratajkowski, Kaia Gerber and Elsa Hosk. For a barbeque celebration, go bold in a red hue. By keeping the look monochromatic with a red crossbody and shiny red pout, courtesy of Chanel Beauty, you’ll add an extra layer of sophistication. Tip: Bring a lightweight cardigan to stay comfortable after the sun goes down.

No matter how many years pass, laying in the grass to watch sparkling firework displays has the same magic it did at 5-years-old. Keep cozy during the holiday tradition in a Madhappy crewneck and denim shorts from Anine Bing. Top the look off with the trend-of-the-moment, the bucket hat. Choosing just two of the three flag colors (in this case blue and red) will give you an effortless patriotism versus a very literal imitation.
