Is it just us, or do we wait all year for summer, only to watch it fly past before our eyes? We don’t know about you, but we can’t believe the Fourth of July is already (almost) upon us. If you’re anything like us and didn’t see it coming, fear not–we’ve got multiple party-ready looks to suit your long weekend vibe. Whether you're planning a full weekend away or you’re watching the fireworks in the comfort of your own home, we promise SN has you covered.

Party Time

Headed to a seriously scaled-up holiday bash? After a few years without being able to party with tons of our friends (and their friends, and their friends), we don’t blame you for feeling more ready than ever to hit the town. Here at SN, we’re all about twists on the classic–so why not swap out a party dress for our universally flattering retro-inspired floral halter top. Pair it with the matching tiered maxi skirt to pack the ultimate party-ready punch, or wear them as separates. We love the idea of pairing the top with a fabulous pair of chic white pants for a monochromatic look and are loving this pair by A.L.C. As far as the accessories go? You can never go wrong with the Poolside croissant bag. And when it comes to shoes, keep the playful party-girl aesthetic going with this pair from Jimmy Choo. Wait, can we come to this party?!

Beachin' It

If your evening plans are less “party til dawn” and more “bonfire on the beach,” we’ve still got you covered. The key to any good beach look is layering, given how cold it gets at night, but you also want to ensure that you’re centering the outfit around one piece you’ll be able to show off all night, even once you’ve layered up. Our choice: SN’s new tie-waist shorts. They’re flirty, flattering, and easy to dress up or down. Go all-in on a beach-inspired sunset color palette in the pink floral combo or keep it elevated and simple in all black. Either way, you can't go wrong! Nervous you might miss out on an opportunity to swim? We are obsessed with this suit from Eres. Finish the look off with a simple pair of Saint Laurent sandals and have a little fun with Anya Hindmarch’s sand whale tote. When it comes to layering up for the evening, tie it all together with this delectably soft pink-and-orange number from Rose Carmine.

Keep It Casual

If you’re more into keeping things extra casual, we have one word for you: jumpsuit. Actually, we have seven words for you: Something Navy's Tie Shoulder Wide Leg Jumpsuit. This army green jumpsuit is the perfect summer staple, whether you’re at a backyard BBQ or simply chilling solo but still wanting to look chic. Want something a bit more fun? We love throwing on an easy dress and this Floral Open Back Longsleeve Mini is our current go-to. Nail the casual-cool vibe by pairing it with a pair of sneakers: this pair by Isabel Marant is one of the coolest on the market right now. When it comes to the bag – the Large Raffia Tote from Marni will support you – sartorially and literally – no matter where the day takes you. Last but certainly not least, drape this cozy Crewneck over your shoulders and you'll be feeling as chic (and comfortable) as ever.
