Plus size summer dressing The 4th of July is one of our favorite holidays: the summer sun is at its peak and no one is stressing about presents or a stuffy, traditional gathering. To us, the 4th is all about relaxing, getting away, and hanging out with family and friends. But even the most low-key of celebrations require some planning. So to help, here's the ELOQUII Starter Kit on how to tackle the three most important things for a 4th of July party: drinks, tunes, and a cute outfit!

Outfit: We're not going to lie: when there's a theme, we're dressing for it. You can embrace the red, white, and blue by pairing our Military Peplum Top in red with our Sadie Shorts in a very appropriate star print. More of a dress gal? Our Flared Sleeve Easy Dress and Sleeveless Stripe Dress fit the bill. And if you want to dress on-theme without being quite as on-the-nose, our Printed Fit and Flare Shirt Dress is the perfect choice.

Cocktails: When we first saw these Red, White, and Blue Bomb Pop Jello Shots, we swooned over the cuteness and knew they'd be perfect for any summer bash. For those who are slightly less crafts-minded (this is a judgment-free zone), there's always a Red, White, and Blue Wine Spritzer which is totally on-theme. But there's no need for your beverage to match the flag: a Cucumber Margarita or a Pink Summer Shandy are perfect for a crowd. And for a delicious non-alcoholic option, try this rhubarb iced tea: so chic!

Playlist: We asked the team and put together a playlist with guaranteed bangers for your 4th of July bash. With tried-and-true Americana mixed with the latest hits, you'll be rocking all night long.
