4 Ways to Update Your Look on the 4th

It’s the time of year where we BBQ by the pool and drink ice cold lemonade while we celebrate our independence. It’s also a great time to update your look and learn some new ways to feel great while you beat the heat.

Happy 4th Style Setters!

1. Great Framed. You would be surprised at how a new pair of sunglasses can instantly make you feel and look more chic. Shop for shades that fit your face and your style. I love the classic aviator shape to channel your inner Cate Blanchett in The Aviator. Or opt for the trendy cat eye style to satisfy your inner fashion rebel.

2. Wedge it. Wedges have been making a statement in the shoe world for years, but have never had the presence they have today. These stacked heels combine height and comfort. A good pair of wedges can usually be worn for 8 hours or more! There are many versions of the wedge to choose from, but some of my favorites this season are by Joie and Dolce Vita.

3. To the Maxi. Most people associate maxi dresses with the beach, but this summer, designers have taken the maxi style to the streets. From stripes to solids, the maxi has most defiantly had a makeover. If your on the petite side, it’s best to look for styles that are tea length or right above the ankle. This is an incredibly popular cut and works with most heights.

4. To Dye For. During the hot summer months, most of us let our hair “do it’s thing”, but the sun can do a number on our color. Instead of booking a pricey salon appointment, run over to your neighborhood CVS and pick up some foam hair color. This is the newest advancement in at-home hair color and gives you salon quality results without the mess.
