Red, White & Denim…I Want It All

july fourth summer | by the skinny confidential

It feels like summer is already in full swing. 

With July 4th right around the corner it’s time to get festive & let loose. Last year Michael & I were in London for the 4th. So this year we’re ready to lounge by the pool with some margaritas & relax with friends. Looking to celebrate in style? Avoid the stars & stripes with these updated classics, k?

One pieces are HOT. Ditch the skimpy bikini this time around & leave a little more to the imagination. One pieces are the ideal piece for busy girls. You can lounge by the pool, go swimming & even wear it out that night. Talk about multi-tasking! HOW Kylie of us. She loves wearing bodysuits with jeans.


Ready for a Baywatch moment? This red one piece is it. Recently I paired it with a kimono while sitting by the pool ( under an umbrella of course! ) in Palm Springs. This suit is especially spicy because it flashes some side boob.


This white one piece gives off similar vibes. The lace-up style is sexy & understated. Mine is from Van De Vort & sold out but I found a SUPER similar one for you guys. You can pair this one piece with a black maxi skirt & white flats when you’re ready to ditch the pool.

It’s time to embrace the kimono trend if you haven’t already. They’re light-weight, come in various styles & perfect for throwing on when you need to make your outfit a little less basic. 

You can wear them as a cover up, paired with jeans and crop top, or over a silky dress for a night out. SO versatile.

Button downs are anything but boring these days. With all sorts of prints & fabrics they make the perfect base piece for all of your summer outfits. How Cuba-ish is the rainbow one?


How fun is this glasses print shirt? It’s whimsical & ideal for summer. Pair this linen top with some ripped denim shorts & sandals or some black pumps to make this outfit nighttime ready.


This shirt is SOOO soft you guys. That alone is enough to wear it. Add in the fun colorful stripes and you’ve got the perfect summer shirt. Pair this top with some white jeans & you’re set for any BBQ all summer long.

Lately I’m loving light denim shorts with a bit of wear & tear. Grab a bodysuit or button down to pair with these shorts and you’ll be good to go. These ones fit JUST right.

What is your summer uniform?

+ health tips for summer? We got ya covered. Listen to Niki who’s a holistic chef & Kelly who’s a celebrity nutritionist on the podcast. 


  1. I live in denim shorts and absolutely love them, but I’m 35!! I live in Spain now and these are a must (in my eyes) for summer! Obviously I don’t go the the short short ones with my bum cheeks hanging out lol I will leave that for the kids and the uber body confident around us! X

  2. With our hot weather, I wear jeans shorts most of the time. Ha! In the photo you posted, I really like how the jeans shorts was paired with a button down ?
