Nothing to wear: Firework Edition

Don’t have anything to wear to the block party? Well, don’t put away the lawn chairs yet, the crew at Cobalt’s got you covered to help you put together a look that will not only make you light up the night sky, but also make you the true sparkler of the party.

Now every good American knows that in order to really celebrate the Fourth of July, one has to be emblazoned in some form of red, white, and blue.  For some this may include American flag overalls, awkward polos, or our personal favorite the pairing of a red and white striped flip flop with a blue flip flop adorned in white stars, however, since we know you fashionistas out there wouldn’t be caught anywhere near such, uh, glamorous Fourth gear, we’ve found a few things that will help you style a finale-worthy ensemble.

Cute & Comfortable: Most fourth of July rituals include BBQ’s, friends, and fireworks. Since you’ll be seeing your friends (and most likely taking pictures that will be later posted on facebook, twitter, instagram, you name it) you want to look nice, but comfort is key. We’ve handpicked some of our favorite tanks and tees that will show off your American spirit & style.

Fun & Flirty: You like to celebrate but being decked out in patriotic garb is SO not your style. Wearing red, white, or blue garments, and accessorizing your look with pops of color will give off a nationalistic vibe without going overboard.

Cobalt Tips: 

  • You like 7/4, but it’s not worth spending the extra cash for a new outfit. Throw on a pair of jeans and a white blouse. Nothing says all american girl than Gap and that’s their signature look.
  • Have you traveled to NY, LA, or Chicago? You don’t have to wear red, white, and blue to be patriotic. Throw on a tee from your favorite american city to show your pride.
