The Fourth of July is just around the corner, and here at Molly Green, we're getting ready to celebrate! Whether you're planning a backyard barbecue, hitting up a local fireworks show, or just spending time with family and friends, we know that looking and feeling great is a must. That's why we've put together this guide to help you create the perfect outfit for the occasion and find some fun things to do while you're in town.
When it comes to dressing for the Fourth of July, there are a few things to keep in mind. Of course, red, white, and blue are the colors of the day, so incorporating them into your outfit is routine. But that doesn't mean you can't bend the rules. You can incorporate these colors into your outfit in a more subtle way. For example, you could wear a white sundress, rely on denim for your Americana appeal, or try a clasic celebration look and wear Monochrome, different tones all in absolutely any shade. No matter what you'll look festive and intentional.
Another way to add some patriotic flair to your outfit is with accessories. Try a coastal inspired necklace, a printed bandana, or a statement pair of gold earrings. And don't forget about your shoes! A pair of white sneakers or sandals will keep your outfit looking fresh and summery.
Things to Do:
Of course, the Fourth of July isn't just about fashion - it's also about having fun! If you're in Nashville for the holiday, there are plenty of things to do. Here are a few ideas:
Watch the Fireworks: Nashville's annual "Let Freedom Sing" fireworks show is a must-see. This year, the event will be held downtown, and there will be live music and food vendors leading up to the big show.
Attend a Festival: If you're in the mood for hot chicken, head over to East Nashville for their annual event. The Music City Hot Chicken Festival benefits the Friends of Shelby Park and Bottoms.
Visit a Local Park: If you want to get some fresh air and enjoy the summer weather, there are plenty of parks in Nashville to choose from. Centennial Park is a popular option, with its iconic Parthenon replica, but there are plenty of other green spaces to explore as well.
What to Wear Where:
- Fun in the Sun: Pool Party Perfection If you plan to spend the day splashing around at a pool party, embrace a playful and chic look. Opt for your favorite swimsuit layered with long, high-waisted shorts and a button-down top. Complete the look with a floppy sun hat, oversized sunglasses, and comfy sandals for a stylish ensemble that effortlessly transitions from the pool to the party.
- Weekend Retreat: Lake Trip Vibes Heading out for a relaxing weekend at the lake? Keep your style laid-back and effortlessly relaxed. Choose a lightweight and breezy maxi dress in floral, neutral, or patriotic hues. Don't forget to pack a wide-brimmed straw hat, comfortable sandals, and a tote bag to complete the lakeside fashion look.
- Backyard BBQ Bliss: Casual and Chic For a backyard barbecue with family and friends, strike the perfect balance between casual and chic. Opt for a comfortable yet stylish option, like a casual denim romper. Add a touch of Americana with a red bandana worn as a headband or tied around your neck. Complete the ensemble with white boots.
- Rooftop Extravaganza: Glamorous Cityscape If you're celebrating Independence Day at a glamorous rooftop event, it's time to bring out your fashion A-game. A fun dress or sparkly skort makes for an effortlessly chic ensemble. Add some glamour with metallic heels and statement earrings, and don't be afraid to incorporate a touch of sparkle with a star-shaped clutch or a sequined accessory. You'll be turning heads as you toast to freedom against the backdrop of a breathtaking cityscape.
