TRENDTASTIC
Get Patriotic

Sure, 4th of July may be all about fireworks, freedom and various liquor concoctions --but let's not forget another key element --swimsuits! Whether you want to go for that classic 80s stars and stripes look or something new and fresh, we have you covered! Here are some of our festive swimsuit picks. Happy 4th!

This edgy one-piece is rad in two ways: the silhouette is totally Malibu circa 1980s and vertical stripes

FASHIONABLE
Celebrate in Style: 4th of July Resort Wear

Just like a little kid counting down the days until her next three day weekend, we cannot wait for the 4th of July to be here! Take a long, luxurious weekend this independence day, but make sure you do it in style. Whether your holiday plans consist of lounging on the beach, outdoor barbecuing or (God forbid) going into the office, we have something for everyone.

No matter what the occasion may be, a little white dress is always up for the task. If your 4th of July plans consist of lounging around and enjoying the sun, opt for something like this simple, flirty summer dress from Templerley London Resort 2012 collection. A solid white dress is a great starting piece for a fabulous July 4th wardrobe. Now, add some color into your look by sporting a navy blue 3.1 Phillip Lim leather tote or keep it simple with a turquoise Diane Von Furstenburg clutch. All that's left to do is put on some red lipstick and a pair of black heels and you're all set to celebrate America's independence in style.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Fourth of July Weekend in the Hamptons

This weekend in the Hamptons is going to be the biggest of the summer. If you haven't made plans to get out there, you better get on it. We hear the last Jitney leaves at 5:30pm on Friday! There will be parties, fireworks, cake and plenty of dancing to celebrate America's birthday (and the biggest national holiday!). So get your flip flops, trunks, (livers) and bikinis ready for the biggest celebration of the season!



When: 11:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.
