  • Star Spangled Style

    June 13, 2016

    Now that summer has officially greated us with triple digit weather, it's time to start thinking about the fourth of July. Regardless if you're in your own backyard or hanging at the beach, there is one fourth of July style that has stood the test of time-- red, white and beautiful (or blue, but whatever). 

    Count your lucky stars, we're here to share a few Independence Day looks that will be sure to spark some fireworks. Let's get star, spangled, styled;

    First and foremost, you'll need a swimsuit. For some subtle stars and stripes action, we love the Billabong Beach Pride High Neck Crop and Tie Side Bottom. Do you want to go full-on patriotic? You'll love the FOX Red, White and True Halter paired with the matching banded bottoms

    Whether you're lounging on the lawn, sun-bathing on the beach or playing by the pool, you'll need a towel and some sunnies. We've got you covered with the Dohler USA American Flag Beach Towel and the Blender Blue Angel mirrored aviators. 

    If swimming isn't your jam, we have the cutest cover-ups and apparel in red, white and blue, bound to make anyone starry-eyed. 

    The Rip Curl Vagabond Maxi Dress is a dream. Wear this classic maxi with a bold red lipstick and neutral sandals for an effortless American beauty style. For a more easy-going BBQ look, we suggest pairing the Billabong Got The Blues Shirt Dress with the Break Free Sandal and a messy top-knot.

    Of course, you've gotta kick back and relax. Kick your feet up, show off your festive shoes in Havianna's Stars and Stripes Flip Flops and enjoy the 3-day weekend.

    What do you plan to wear for the holiday weekend? Show us your firework-worthy fashion by tagging us on Instagram @SOStyleSwim or uploading your photo to our Style Showcase Gallery

    I’m going to spend the day poolside with my close family and friends, including my (all) American pitbull terrier Harp. There will be homemade frozen margs and fresh grilled veggies straight from my garden! And of course, we’ll end the night seeing fireworks!
