Live Well, Dress Well: Celebs "Dress" It Up on the Fourth

While perusing celebrity fashion over the past couple of weeks, I spotted a definite theme in the wardrobe choices of many stylish starlets. Apparently this summer is all about flowy dresses and fabulous sunglasses.

I am totally okay with this trend, as my flirty feminine side has definitely been coming out more and more since being married. Here I have collected a few different dresses that each channel the specific look each featured celebrity is going for.

Katy's Short, Lacy Number

ASOS, Target, Victoria's Secret, Urban Outfitters

Not surprisingly, I could not find a perfect replica of Katy Perry's very unique dress, but this little frock is just asking to be DIYed! Begin with any of the many available lacy or crocheted frocks from a variety of price ranges and then add floral decals similar to the ones on Katy's dress. Urban Outfitters offers many frocks with looks similar to the ones above as well as dresses with floral patterns similar to Katy's even if they do not share her dress's lacy texture.

Rosie's Fluttering Floral

Dillards, Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was out with boyfriend Jason Statham shopping for July Fourth barbecue supplies in a flowy dress with a lovely flowered pattern. I actually had a very hard time finding an affordable version of Rosie's dress, but these three options channel her look fairly well. The Nordstrom's options are a bit pricey, but the shorter Urban Outfitters dress is very doable.

Jessica's Trendy Coral and Denim Pairing

I think mom-to-be Jessica Alba's trendy grocery shopping look could be achieved using any bold-colored maxi dress, but coral is certainly an easy to find and affordable option. If you are one of the lucky ladies who can still fit into juniors' clothing, Boscov's can offer you a coral maxi for a mere $17. You could also incorporate the nautical stripes from Gwen Stefani's outfit with the coral from Jessica's thanks to Old Navy's tiered maxi dress in Warm Sunset. Don't forget a cute denim jacket to complete the ensemble.

Gwen's Nautical Stripes

Piperlime, TopShop, Target, Nordstrom

Gwen Stefani's Independence day attire is my favorite outfit in this post. Her tiered, asymmetrical dress obviously has some distinct designer flair, but a similar look can be achieved with any number of nautical striped maxi dresses. If you're in the mood to rock Gwen's bold holiday look even after the Fourth, be sure to add bright red details.

Sunglasses, Sunglasses, Sunglasses!

Urban Outfitters, Iced Out Gear, Sunglass Warehouse, Urban Outfitters

These ladies seem to think it's all about cat-eyes and aviators. Who am I to disagree? With shades, it's all about what you're willing to pay. They are available everywhere from the dollar store to the shelves of Gucci's warehouse. Find a pair that you can rock no matter what.

Enjoy the Fourth looking fab as a Hollywood celeb!
