Happy Independence Day! What To Eat, Drink, Watch and Wear This July 4

04 July 2012 by


To honour American Independence Day today, we say grab your stars and stripes, eat burgers and hotdogs and start serving up those root beer floats. Grazia HQ have outlined how to celebrate the 4th July in style...

We may be slaving away at in the office today but our friends Stateside will be enjoying barbecues, beach fun, fireworks and donning A LOT of red, white and blue.

We say, channel Kate Bosworth, who wore an American Flag vest to Coachella this year or Rihanna, who rocked some patriotic short shorts from Topshop in LA back in May or be bold like Keira Knightley’s beau James Righton who’s been spotted in this T-shirt in NYC. Lindsay Lohan was seen last year wearing an American Flag bag but if you don't have time to buy something new, pay homage today by wearing your favourite American designer. Marc Jacobs, anyone?

We’re going to be taking inspiration from pop princess, Katy Perry, swapping her union jack false eyelashes for stars and stripes.

Gorging on burgers, hotdogs and/or barbeques today is a must. If you feel up to it, head over to Camden’s Blues Kitchen which is hosting its annual ‘Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest’ today from 7pm for a whopping 30 minutes. Wowza.

US Passport holders, remember to take those out with you tonight as lots of bars will be offering free drinks to US citizens. Make sure to opt for or serve traditional root beer floats tonight which consist of root beer and a scoop or two of vanilla ice-cream.

Staying in? Watch American Pie and then subsequently dance around to Madonna’s 'American Pie'.












Happy Independence Day, y'all!
