So, it’s the 4th of July, and you are invited to party with your friends over sumptuous meals, wine, and fireworks. Everything’s set – from the menu of salad, ribs, and bbq – and then you decide on wearing an independence day-appropriate ensemble with a retro twist. While you get giddy and excited to show off your style and enjoy the feast, sporting a vintage style for Independence Day can be tricky. You want to project a retro vibe while still being appropriate for the occasion and without overdoing it. Here are some ideas to rock a vintage outfit for 4th of July:
- Polka dots are hot
Sport your polka red and blue polka dot bikini for 4th of July and impress your peers at first sight! A polka dotted piece is a great reminder of how awesome and cute retro fashion is, isn’t it? Wearing polka dots for a vintage feel, while sporting the colors of the United States, is certainly a stylish way to celebrate Independence Day. You can never go wrong with polka dots as they are perky, cute, charming, and just dainty overall. If you are not into bikinis, a lovely blue or red polka dotted dress will work just as well.
- Crazy for navy
Nautical and sailor accented fashion is very trendy and would usually go well with any body type as it is simple and classic. Accent prints like anchors and stripes in navy blue sailor dress or top are great styles you can show off. Nautical themed fashion looks great on halter style tops and dresses and goes well with cute accessories like sailor cap or scarves.
- Allure with collar
Vintage fashion is identifiable by certain fashion accents like wide belts, peep-toe pumps, and the famous Peter Pan collars. Rock your independence day party with a simple, put together collared dress in red, blue, and white, and you will definitely turn heads! Wear your navy blue peep-toe footwear and display the retro style for everyone to see.
- Simplicity is key
The vital tip to sporting a retro style for any occasion is keeping it simple and put together. An effective vintage fashion should not be overdone, with just enough flair and style to achieve a statement. While wearing a vintage outfit for 4th of July is a statement in itself, keeping it classic and modest is fundamental.
Independence Day parties are a great way to bond with your friends, families and loved ones while celebrating the country’s freedom, but it sure can be an avenue to sport your inner fashionista! Have a wonderful 4th of July!
