Holidays are a moment to shine, sartorially speaking, because there are no rules. Independence Day in particular sets the stage for casual yet distinctive dressing that showcases your personality, whether via all-American denim, a bold swimsuit, or jewelry that sparkles like fireworks. Below, read our fresh styling ideas designed with your Fourth of July 'fit in mind.

Think Sleek In White

A white shirtdress is a timeless element for your Fourth of July festivities, whether worn buttoned up or as a poolside coverup. The classic canvas makes it easy to play up your accessories, so grab Danielle Nicole's crochet satchel from your Summer Box of Style and a pair of minimalist strappy sandals -- and go.

Opt For A Festive Braid

Whether your signature braid is a fishtail, a crown or a pattern of your own invention, the statement hair style is a pretty and practical move. Strut your independence and elevate the look with a pleated maxi dress and Machete's lucite earrings from your Summer Box of StyleKeep them guessing after dark when you let your hair down to reveal effortless beach waves.

BYOB: Bring Your Own Beach Towel

Poolside plans? Beach day? Backyard movie? You're in luck: Missoni goes with everything. Bring the Box of Style beach towel hero with you wherever you go to add instant color to your Fourth of July ensemble. Bonus points if you match it to a bright one-piece swimsuit.
