The 4th of July is commonly celebrated across America with fireworks, barbecues, picnics, and social gatherings. With vaccination numbers rising, gatherings are increasing. Last summer was primarily spent indoors and isolated, so this 4th of July celebration, for many, is a special reintroduction to social life, gatherings, and outings. It’s finally time to ditch the sweatpants and start dressing up again! For those with significant others, this Independence Day can be a romantic day for watching fireworks together, going on a picnic date, or having a bonfire after a day at the beach.  Fashion Reverie has curated our favorite luxurious red, white, and blue trends and products for the fireworks to begin!

Trend: Crochet Dresses over Swimsuits

The 4th of July almost always has one guarantee: it’s going to be hot! For those who want the option to dip into the water, the best fashion choice is a sexy crochet dress over a swimsuit.  Dress down with sandals and dress up with netted heels!

Trend: Sheer Dresses over Romantic Lingerie

Replace the crochet with a sheer dress and the swimsuit with lingerie, and there is the perfect look for a non-swim related activity.  Fashion Reverie recommends romantic florals and light, airy hues. For Love and Lemons is a highlighted brand for this trend, with the brand stating “We make enchanting clothing for the vibrant muse unafraid to take risks, forge their own way and embrace a bit of adventure.” Pieces are romantic and dreamy, putting us into a true fashion reverie!

Trend: Lingerie on Top!

Lingerie is too pretty to hide underneath your clothes, so flip fashion inside out by pairing charming lingerie with every-day fashion items like jeans. Sororite Vintage has become a celebrity favorite brand with their gorgeous reworked vintage pieces. Most notably, a dusty pink corset lingerie set was worn by Billie Eilish on the cover of the June 2021 British Vogue issue. Celebrities like Sabrina Carpenter, Madison Beer, Kylie Jenner, and Duckie Thot have also been spotted pairing their vintage pieces with jeans, dresses, and white sneakers.

Trend: Aqua Satin and Silk

Other than lace, there are no fabrics as romantic as satin and silk. The soft and breathable texture is perfect for a steamy day. Silky pieces can be dressed up or down to move fluidly from day to night for a look that is suited for any 4th of July setting. Worn outside, the sun and fireworks glimmer off the fabric, which will surely cause a spark!

Trend: Chic Stripes

Fashion Reverie’s top men’s trend for this 4th of July is chic stripes that are patriotic without being contrived. The idea is an effortlessly festive look that can be dressed up or down. Top brands are Todd Snyder and Tommy Bahama, with the latter recently debuting an entire 4th of July themed collection. Wear a matching set or pair with a white tee and jeans for a casual but fashionable look!
