4th of July Fashion, Outfit, Navy Striped dress, Red White and Blue outfit fashion

Nothing says “patriotic” like navy and white stripes.  For curvy girls, they can be intimidating (I have to admit these side panels helped).  I paired this look with my new favorite red shoes from a recent Charlotte Russe Haul, and my new favorite BaubleBar earrings… which kind of have a starburst effect…. and a Bombshell cuff because..well.. sometimes you just want to feel like a Bombshell!  I tied the look together with Red, White, and Blue makeup.. and… viola!… I have a glam 4th of July outfit that’s perfect for a night out celebrating our Independence!

This dress is from Banana Repiblic and is no longer available.. but here are some tips for picking out a flattering striped dress…

    Love that look! It’s totally 50’s bombshell to me.
    You look spectacular in that dress. I agree that side panels help make stripes wearable for most of us.
