Whether we like it or not, summer is in full swing and the fourth is quickly approaching. While we were out the other day, Noelle, Sophia, and I were on the hunt for the perfect Fourth of July outfit (if you follow us on Instagram @fourofakinddiaries and watched our story then you saw me try one a few of them). I saw a common theme happening in every store we visited… STRIPES!
It seemed like every red, white, and blue article of clothing contained some sort of stripe. Whether it was wide, thin, vertical, or horizontal. They were everywhere. I tried on a few different styles and was shocked at how much they grew on me. I quickly fell in love with the look of them.
With that being said, I decided to share with you guys a few striped looks that would be perfect for your Fourth of July attire. The red and cream striped skirt below is the one I bought to wear!
Stripes for the Fourth
1♦ The Striped Romper
I found this romper while I was browsing Forever 21’s website. I think it is perfect for a night of watching fireworks! The two color options are red/cream and navy/cream which are the perfect combos for the holiday. And for $15.90 you can not beat it!!!
2♦ The Kardashian inspired look
This is one of the outfits that I tried on in store the other day. As soon as I put it on I instantly felt like Kourtney K rocking her pajama shirt fit around town. This dress is super light weight and would look perfect on its own with a slip under it or paired with your favorite pair of jean shorts. The $24.90 price tag was even more appealing.
3♦ My Favorite OTS Top
When I stumbled upon this shirt the other day I couldn’t help but have it. OTS, bell sleeve, casual, and colorful. Everything one needs in life IMO (in my opinion!). I love this shirt even more because it goes beyond holiday attire. The lilac and coral color add extra pizazz and can transition into end of the summer looks. To make the deal even sweeter, this top only runs you $17.90!
4♦ The Striped Skirt and Crop Top Combo
Last but certainly not least we have the outfit that I chose! I saw this skirt in store and was instantly drawn to it. When I found a dark navy OTS crop top to pair with it, I was sold! This skirt fits like a dream. While there are buttons down the whole front of it, there is also an elastic band in the back that makes it a breeze to get one (no you don’t have to unbutton and rebutton them each time). This skirt can also be worn at your hips or high waisted. It is so versatile and definitely one that I will be wearing non stop this summer. The skirt only ran me $17.90 and the crop top that I chose from Forever 21 as well only cost me $8.90!
Stay tuned for my final look with this skirt in the next two weeks!
I hope you guys found these looks cute and helpful in your endeavor to find the best fourth of july looks.
