Outfit of the Week: American Woman

Jesse L. Brooks


The Fourth of July is upon us, and we are bringing out our best red, white and blue for the occasion. The key to a great 4th look when you're a fashionista is to find that fine line between comfort and luxury. We started this look with a couple of All American staples - a great pair of jeans and a casual (yet chic) top. These mid-rise skinnies by Brunello Cucunelli are cut in Italy from cotton denim with a touch of comfort boosting stretch blended in. We matched our denim with a cherry red airy blouse by Moschino that offers a beautiful blast of color. Showing our patriotic side via shoes are Manolo Blahnik's "Zaka' pumps featuring a USA flag motif in smooth leather and sparkling sequins. These heels are so fabulous, don't be surprised if they get their very own salute. We continued accessorizing in style, adding a posh and compact crossbody bag by Valentino, ultra-cool aviator sunglasses by Micheal Kors and a shining star pendant necklace from Kendra Scott.

Last but not least comes a bold red lip using Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Kissable Lip Shine. It gives luminous, sheer color and a brilliant boosted gleam for sculpted, perfectly kissable lips. While a crowded festival or concert likely won't be on your list of things to do this year, you can still have fun with the holiday and feel like a proud "American Woman."
