The fourth of July is always a benchmark for me. It signifies that summer is here, but it’s getting closer to being over. It seems to me that summer goes by so quickly once the fourth is over. That’s why I always go see fireworks and try to enjoy the holiday. Plus, it’s always fun to have an excuse to get some new clothing. That’s why I received a free dress and crossbody bag from Kohl’s to do this post on patriotic outfits for women.
Patriotic Outfits for Women
Red, white, and blue. Those are the colors of our country’s flag and the colors that everyone tries to wear on July 4th. In fact, you could wear white jeans for the holiday with a cute blue or red top. You could also wear a pair of blue jeans with a white or red shirt. However, when I was browsing the site, I wanted to pick one of the more feminine patriotic outfits for women while keeping in mind my plans for the rest of the summer.
4th of July Dress
Since I’m going to BlogHer later this month (eek!), I wanted to find a dress that would be perfect for the 4th of July while still looking good for a party at night. That’s why I went with the Croft and Borrow Print Dress to build my outfit on. I wanted something that was comfortable while still rocking white and blue. This dress is made of rayon and spandex (according to the site) and it’s so soft. I could definitely wear this thing all day. Plus, the scoopneck cut makes it totally appropriate for the classroom. I also love, love, love the pockets on it. I heart anything with pockets. So, this dress was definitely calling me. I also found the design to be truly interesting. You can see a close-up of it on the lower right in the collage above. Isn’t it beautiful?
Finally, to add the finishing touch to any patriotic outfits for women, you need accessories. I actually paired this with a pair of black high heels, silver hoop earrings, and the Rosetti cross-body bag in pewter. I think the silver/grey shade of it goes great with my dress. I also think it will pair nicely with lots of other outfits. I will definitely be carrying this around Chicago in three weeks. The faux leather is soft yet durable. I love all of the compartments and pockets in it. It will hold the essentials and more. Plus, the adjustable strap is great for getting the perfect fit.
I can’t wait to put one of my newest patriotic outfits for women to good use. What do you think of it?
