If you find yourself in the city this 4th of July, we have some outfit inspiration that is sure to give you the holiday feeling you desire, even without a vacation destination.

for a FRIENDLY brunch:

Bring a coastal vibe to brunch with summer knitwear and basket-weave accessories. Pair neutral tones with a pop of color for a relaxed-chic approach to summertime casual. A kitten heels means you’re ready for whatever is to follow your brunching on the West side.

FOR A DINNER WITH THE FAMILY:

Having the family in town can often call for a little dressing up. A midi-skirt with a light cotton knit is a combination that looks the part whilst remaining effortlessly assured and comfortable. An ensemble like this will be suitable for any dinner-date the family has planned for your holiday weekend.


FOR A FUNCTION WITH THE WORK CROWD:

If you’re lucky enough to have a work commitment over the holiday weekend, rest assured you can still dress like you’re on somewhat of a vacation. Pair a white pant-suit with a simple tee and add a flat slide for city cool-girl vibes. You might still be on the clock, but the right outfit can transport you no matter what event is on the calendar.

FOR A ROOFTOP PARTY:

Summer in New York City is filled with rooftop fun. If you’re heading to a party in the sky, keep yourself grounded in a pair of converse sneakers, then let your limbs bask in the sunshine with high-waist mini shorts and a simple tank-top. If the temperature is set to drop, keep your shoulders warm with a blazer in a pop-color; a recipe for an uber cool outfit and an uber cool party.

FOR THAT HAMPTONS FEELING:

Longing for a weekend in the Hamptons or on the Amalfi Coast? Bring beach-side charm to the city with a playful jersey dress and over-sized shirt. Accessorize with a flat sandal and cross-body and you can guarantee you will feel like you’re almost anywhere else. This outfit is perfect for afternoon strolls through the village before an early aperitif by the water.
