The Pursuit of Happiness and Cute Clothes

The Pursuit of Happiness and Cute Clothes

Fireworks, family and food all help to bring us together when we're celebrating National Independence Day. This is the perfect, casual time to introduce friends (and maybe that special someone) to the rest of the fam! For times like this, you need to make a good impression. Take a look through our 4th of July Style Guide so that you can know how to style yourself (and your crew!) during this patriotic holiday! 


Date Night 4th of July Outfits


If you and your sweetheart are looking to go out for dinner this 4th of July, make sure to dress the part! A cute solid red dress like this one works as the perfect statement maker, while not being too dressy for a night out. You can easily pair it with a denim jacket and some platform sandals and you'll be out the door, ready for a fun night on the town! Now, for your other half, we recommend that he styles with one of his favorite BBQ button-up shirts, a pair of colorful shorts (guys, this is not the night for khaki or grey shorts!) and a comfy pair of sneakers. This pairing is perfect for dinner with the family, or for a date night dinner where you'll have the perfect view of the local fireworks when you're done.


BBQ outfit ideas


So, let's be honest. Some of us aren't even thinking about fireworks, and we're just ready for the FOOD! Hamburgers, hot dogs, and all of your favorite BBQ food hot and ready to eat? Count us in! But what are you going to wear?.. Stick with a  simple, denim romper like this one and again, you can grab out your favorite pair of platform sandals to finish off the look. For guys, we're all about a simple way to incorporate red, white and blue into your look with a pair of hydro shorts and an Americana tee. Finish your look with a trusty pair of sneakers and you're ready to chow down in style!


4th of July at the Lake


If you're not the type to focus on anything but the fireworks, you know that the best show will be displayed over your local lake! In order to have the best spot, you might have to be out in the area for quite a while before the show, so you'll want to wear something comfortable. A simple t-shirt dress and a trendy pony scarf will be the best go-to to for a casual, yet festive outfit. For our guys out there, we hope that this The North Face look will inspire you to create a suns out, guns out look with a bright red tank top and a sun-protection hat. To finish off both looks, carry your drinks in a festive Yeti cup! (We now have red, white and blue!)


Girl Gang 4th of July tees


If you're planning on spending this holiday with your gal pals, you'll be able to create perfect group selfies with festive tees like these! Pop culture references are a great way to show off your patriotic style, and large prints come in handy for creating a one-and-done Americana look! You can either have everyone match by wearing the same style, or make a point to have everyone wear something different for a fun group look!


Excited about the 4th of July


No matter which look you pick, we're confident that you'll shine brighter than the finale of the Fireworks show in whatever outfit you create for this amazing holiday. You can shop for all of these festive looks and more on our website, or at your local Glik's.
