With the 4th July almost upon us, have you decided how to mark the occasion? Or, perhaps even more importantly, have you decided what to wear?
Whether you’re heading out to enjoy the parades, staying in for a BBQ or pool party, or marking the occasion with a cocktail (or two!), you need the perfect shoes for the event.
Here at Moda in Pelle we have you covered. We’ve detailed our top footwear picks for all your Independence Day celebrations, so you can rock red, white and blue in true style.
What shoes to wear to a pool party
It’s July, the sun is shining – so, what better way to spend 4th July than at a pool party?
Swimwear will, of course, be on the cards. Luckily, red, white and blue are already lend themselves perfectly to a nautical style. Embrace this with sailor-inspired white and blue striped swimwear, and ensure you have a kimono or floaty cover-up handy for relaxing poolside.
When it comes to footwear for a pool party, sandals are a no-brainer. Slider sandals, in particular, are easy to throw on and off as you’re in and out of the pool, and incredibly easy to style with your casual pool ensemble.
Embrace the 4th July spirit in full force with the stunning star-spangled Nelsy White Leather sliders. These white sliders have an unbeatable grip, perfect for lazy afternoons by the pool. And, with their eye-catching star-studded design, you won’t find a pair of sliders more appropriate for the day’s festivities!
If you’d prefer sliders with a pop of color, we just adore the Narita Cobalt Blue Leather sliders. These beautiful sandals perfectly blend feminine and sporty styles, with a pretty bow cobalt blue upper meeting an edgy white sole.
What shoes to wear to a garden BBQ
Perhaps you’re spending this 4th July firing up the BBQ and enjoying copious amounts of hot dogs and burgers?
If so, you’ll need an outfit for the occasion. BBQs are great because they boast such a relaxed, casual atmosphere – so why not match the vibe with your clothing? A floaty summer dress is perfect for nailing casual BBQ chic, and sandals or flats create the ideal finishing touch.
To truly nail the red white and blue theme, opt for a white summer dress and finish the look with the Noello Navy Red Leather sandals. These classic sandals offer red and blue detailing, meaning you can represent the flags colors in true style. If you’re wanting to rock a pair of summer flats, the Felmi Red Lizard flats are our number one choice for making a bold and beautiful impression.
What shoes to wear to a street party
Of course, no 4th July is complete without a firework display!
If you’re heading into town or having a street party to enjoy the sights, why not opt for a stylish pair of wedges to complete your evening look? Wedges are one of our firm summertime staples – they can easily be paired with a variety of looks, from casual jeans to killer dresses, to create a standout finish. Not only that, but a wedge style offers comfort and practicality – perfect for enjoying 4th July well into the night!
If you’re opting for a more casual look, we just adore the Pasha White Porvair wedges. These classic white wedges have been given intrigue and interest with a fun gold metallic platform, perfect for a special occasion! Or, if you’re opting for a dressier evening look, the Primka Navy Leather wedges are ideal for adding an instant touch of class to your ensemble.
What shoes to wear to a 4th July Parade
If you’re spending this 4th July watching parades, you need footwear that a) will remain comfortable all day long, and b) that will help you stand out from the crowd.
Here at Moda, we firmly believe that comfort should never mean a compromise on style. We’d recommend keeping it comfy, practical, yet ever-stylish at your Independence Day parade in a fun, fashion-forward pair of trainers.
White trainers are a classic, and the perfect option for keeping in line with the red, white and blue color theme. Opt for the stunning Alamo White Leather trainers, team with blue jeans, and finish the look with a red tee or fun red accessories for an occasion appropriate outfit that perfectly blends fashion and function. Or, if you fancy footwear that makes a bit more of a statement, turn heads for all the right reasons in the Argentias Burgundy Leather high top trainers.
What shoes to wear to a cocktail evening
Finally, perhaps you’re using the occasion to get all dressed up and head out for a drink or two with the girls? If so, you need footwear to make an impression.
If you’re looking to step up your look for an evening out, do it in style with a pair of beautiful heels from the Moda collection. Look out for red and blue styles – the bold pop of color will elevate your look, while ensuring you look the part on the 4th.
The absolutely stunning Rumina Multicolored Patent heels are a fantastic choice. The red shade blends perfectly with the orange detailing, creating an eye-catching heel that will turn heads for all the right reasons. Or, if you’re wanting a slightly more subtle, yet still colorful, option, chose the Ilarian Cobalt Blue Suede.
