Fourth of July might be one of my favorite holidays. Although I typically don’t like the heat (ironic because I live in South Carolina), there’s something special about friends and family getting together for a barbecue, pool fun, and fireworks. One of the best ways I’ve found to beat the heat is to slip on a ‘cool fabric’ dress. Think no waistbands, no itchy fabric on your legs, no tank tops under shirts because every summer shirt is see-through … it’s just a cooler alternative to shorts or pants when it’s 105 degrees and 100% humidity.
This chiffon, striped dress from Michael Kors is one of the comfiest dresses I own. Because it’s a maxi dress, I feel like I have so much freedom of movement, and the chiffon fabric is just perfect for keeping you cool on hot day. If you’re looking to avoid the direct sun, the 3/4 length sleeves provide just enough sun protection. It’s also the perfect combination of red, white and blue!
If you’re searching for Fourth of July outfit inspiration, why not try on a maxi dress in your favorite combination of patriotic colors. Add some flowers for your host, if you’re going to a friend’s house, and you’ve created the perfect, all-American look!
