The Fourth of July is quickly approaching, meaning time is running out to lock in our festive fashion for the long weekend! Known as quite possibly the most fun, summer holiday of the year, there are various ways to show your patriotic side through today's trends in fashion, hair, accessories, makeup and nail art. In case you're in need of a helping hand on what is popular in the fashion world for this 4th, check out the polling results from polling app Wishbone! We polled over 5,000 users on their preferences on various 4th of July style details from the outfit, makeup, nails and more. Interested in what looks best? Go with the most popular vote. Interested in standing out from the crowd? Go against the grain and choose the less popular look --now that you know what everyone wants to wear! It's really a win-win. Let's dive into the results below!
The Fourth Of July Fit: Flirty and Fun or Laid Back Casual?
With an endless amount of ensembles to create with the red, white and blue colors, we've decided to just narrow down the options and decide between a fun and flirty style vs. a casual and laid back option. For our first look we've paired a trendy red and white stripped crop top and a starry high-low flowy skirt - perfect for the ultimate American girly girl. Our second option is a more chill American flag tank paired with studded high-rise shorts. Equally as fashionable yet giving off a sportier vibe. Which look has won over America?
The lady liberties have spoken and they're loving the crop top and skirt look! Out of over 6,000 voters, the majority 54% went with the more dressed up option and we have to agree. That flowy star skirt is to die for! If you're looking to stand out among the trendy crop top and skirts, absolutely go with the classic tank and jean shorts. There's nothing more American than jean shorts on a summer night.
Hair Accessories: Bow vs. Flower Crown?
Would you rather dress your locks up with a very classic bow or a trendy flower crown? Both are equally as cute and very girly. They'll give you that extra special flare to help give you achieve those festive feels. What will we be seeing more of this year?
Head Games: Headband vs. Hat?
Back to our head games, we've decided to put a more tomboy pair of looks up against each other: the bandana and a flat-brimmed hat. Both give off a very cool, easy going look that gives you a huge amount of swagger. You really can't wear both at once so which look is best?
Shockingly, the bandana wins over the flat-brimmed hat in this competition with a slight advantage of 55% of the vote over the hat's 45%. Understandably, a cap worn normally or backwards may be a tough one to pull off and isn't everyone's go-to style. The bandana allows for more hair to be shown and gives a more girly look compared to the hat. Also, a bandana fits all head sizes, whereas a hat might not look right on everyone. If you can pull both looks off, you're doing somethin right!
Which Patriotic Nail Art?
Who said Fourth of July fashion stopped at your clothes?! One of the holiday's most common trends are festive nails! With so many color options and designs to choose from, how does one decide what to go with for the big weekend? The easy answer is to create a Wishbone poll, obviously! For this nail bitting matchup, we went with a classic American flag design for all nails vs. the trendier accent nail look with a base color of red for the remaining nails. What was the preferred polish in this poll?
