When thinking about holiday weekends & dressing in a theme, I try to find items that I already have & normally wear , so as to avoid a single specific holiday-only piece that I only break out once a year. For Independence Day, rather than donning an obviously flag shirt or branded tee from a store, I chose to feature a favorite pattern of mine in a way that can celebrate the holiday, summer season, & still appear stylish. Polka dots are always a great idea! They’re timeless & stylish for a variety of occasions, especially this July weekend!
However, with the below picks from LOFT, be sure to check the web (& website) for coupon codes for this holiday weekend to get an even better deal on sale price items.
Specifically, navy polka dots & ruffles scream summer, especially when paired with white linen shorts, denim cut-offs, or ankle pants.
SHOP: Zoo Dot Flutter Peplum Top in navy @LOFT (on sale: $44.99, available in sizes XS-XL).
Consider coordinating a flowy short skirt with a bold tee, in red or magenta, to contrast the classic polka dot vibe. Don’t forget the espadrilles too!
SHOP: Dotted Godet Skirt in navy @LOFT (on sale: $59.99, available in sizes XS-XL).
Lastly, a pair of wide leg pants is a must-have for summer, especially on the cooler nights. Try these with a button-down for brunch & then crochet sweater & tank for a family dinner with beads & bangles.
