Canada Day Fashion Ideas For The Canuck Girl

Whether you are personally heading off to the cottage or simply enjoying fireworks at your local beach, the July 1 long weekend is an opportunity for hard-working Canadian girls everywhere to relax. Even if you’re swapping out your usual corporate dress code for something a little more casual, you still want to look chic and trendy for Canada Day. With the True North’s national flag giving us the classic shades of red and white, there are endless ways to accessorize your look. From jumpsuits to sundresses, look no further than these Canada Day 2018 potential outfit ideas.

Stylish in stripes: Striping is a major trend for Summer 2018, and stripes in our flag colours allow us to jump right into this reigning fad. Try stealing the Instagram look spotted here, and slipping into a red and white pinstriped shirtdress. The vertical stripes offer a sophisticated and slimming effect, while the sharp collar and knotted belt create a smart silhouette. Meanwhile, oversized white sunglasses and flat espadrilles wrap up the overall summery look.

Playful polka dots: A beautiful red frock can help to emphasize your bronzed glow for the season, while tiny white polka dots impart a sweet and girlish look. We are liking this dotted scarlet dress, which shows off a hint of leg and also features a ruffled, strappy bodice.

Red jumpsuit: If prints and patterns aren’t quite your thing, you can always steal the gorgeous red shade from the Canadian flag, and rock a solid jumpsuit instead. This sleeveless red one-piece outfit features a slim fit and cropped trouser legs, and enhances the figure with its body-hugging style. Try rocking a similar look, and if you really want to feel like a patriot, add contrasting white accessories for the ultimate effect. Happy Canada Day!
