Stars Stripes Style 2014

8 Looks for your 4th of July Celebration

BBQ’s, fireworks, picnics, pub crawls, and beach parties are just a few of the ways we celebrate our Independence Day. We put together 8 looks that will work for any SoCal 4th of July celebrations.

Styling yourself for this casual holiday is about comfortable, effortless style. Shorts & Tees, Rompers, and Minis are just a few pieces to inspire your independent style.

Tasty Style

One styling trick all SoCal gals need to know is the easy art of layering. This look is simple! A casual shirt dress, flannel (tied around the waist-for style & an added later of warmth for later) and mule booties. Done and Done!

Beach City Style

Spending the day boating? A family BBQ? This little romper is easy and all you need to finish off the look is shoes. Sandals, Wedges or Booties would pair perfectly.
