Culture: Where Not to Celebrate the Fourth
Where NOT to celebrate the Fourth (and what to wear!) SUN + SWEAT + SOAK
July 4th is a time for tradition. A time to re-do the old and spurn the new. But at its roots, the holiday is really about the new. What’s more out of your comfort zone than starting a new Democracy after all? And since Hamilton made it trendy to care about American history, and everyone’s plying you with glossy photos telling you where you should be this weekend, we’re going to tell you where you shouldn’t. Try something you can’t find in a listicle…
Anywhere landlocked | The Fourth is about sun, sweat, and soaking. Try to find a place where there’s a trough of sorts around
What to wear while avoiding dry land | The chicest bathing suit you can find and slip on a DSDress to cover up
The Hamptons | No one actually wants to be around this many people they know. Unless you want to spend your weekend waiting in line, waiting in traffic, and waiting for a drink we suggest a less obvious geotag for your ‘murrica grams
What to wear while avoiding the Hamptons | White sneakers, ripped denim, white DSTee
Your Parents’ Place | Family is great. The same annual fourth of July BBQ with the Jonses might be what you’ve had planned all summer but at a certain point you have to ask yourself, are you going because you want to or because you haven’t read this article yet?
What to wear while avoiding your parents’ place | Sheer DSCrop, denim skirt
The United Kingdom | It might be too soon (maybe like this joke) to celebrate any independence day here..
What to wear while avoiding the UK | Anything made in the EU, like a HAT perhaps.

My Way Muse: Alice Amat
MY WAY MUSE: ALICE AMAT For the past few months, Alice has been a rockstar intern at DRESSHIRT. Her creativity and phenomenal energy was an incredible addition to our team. At the end of the semester, we had a chat with Alice about her personal style.
Tell us about yourself!
I'm Alice. I'm a Parisian girl, but NYC has found a special place in my heart. I'm a lover of all things food, fashion and of course, wine.
Paris or New York?
How would you describe your style?
Wake up. Assess wardrobe. Decide according to my mood and day.
Can you share any French style secrets?
The more minimal, the more stylish.
How do you wear your SCRFTux?
I like to wear it as a choker, but going loose also adds a laid back feel to the look.
What drew you to DRESSHIRT?
The customizable and chic aesthetic create a special experience that you cannot find anywhere else. Also the team behind the brand is a group of amazing girls that have been so cool to work with.
Watch the extended cut of our first DS+ Film following Alice through the streets of SoHo.
