Star Style for the 4th

TrendAlert-July4th 2I’m not your typical matchy-matchy mama, but I do love to show my holiday spirt by dressing for a festive weekend. I’m seeing star motifs everywhere this summer and since they are a chic nod to Independence Day, I think they are completely apropos. We usually watch fireworks on the 4th in Philadelphia or at the Jersey shore after attending a BBQ or two, so it’s easy for me to work in some stars and stripes. Here’s a little outfit inspo for your own holiday weekend, including a look for your mini! What are your plans for the 4th? -Olivia

A Wardrobe of White

White has many different connotations- pure, clean, bright. Then there is that statement, “white hot.” What does it all mean when trying to add white into your wardrobe? You have probably heard the rule about not wearing white after Labor Day. It is crazy to think that so much time is dedicated to this color, that some argue is only a shade.

Well, call us crazy, because we are about to dedicate a little more time to the color that crisps up any outfit, lightens any look & potentially just may be the chicest shade.

White acts a canvas for you to style with jewelry, belts, scarves and other colored accessories. Take a basic white dress, which alone looks summery & sleek, now add a nude bag, gladiator sandals & brown sun glasses- you are the epitome of a Grecian Goddess. Or, pop on some yellow high heels, a pink purse & green bangles for a look that is sure to draw attention & compliments. White makes color pop.

White is known as the summer staple because unlike it’s opposite, black, it actually reflects the sun & thus the heat. Throw on white shorts to keep your legs looking cool or a white cover-up over your bathing suit to keep the baby bump protected.

The white-on-white trend is the classiest fashion statement since, well, black-on-black. The difference? It is uniform, but also unexpected. It is the most mod, mommy-in-the-making monochromatic look!

The plain white-tee has become a cult classic at this point, & white sweaters, summer sweatshirts, blouses & tanks are following suit. White is the look of the season- there is no doubt about that & no question that white will always look pure, clean & bright.
