With 4th of July rearing its pretty head, what better way is there to pay homage to America than through style?

The Style HQ are teaming up with Bar Bar, to present you the chance to win a fun night with free drinks for you and your friends. Come and enjoy good vibes, cuts and cocktails at Bar Bar : 15 Victoria Arobieke St (Cinnamon Gardens Mall), Lekki 1, Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday the 2nd of July.

What does it take, you might wonder? All you need to do is tag us in a post on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #stylehqxbarbar, showing us your best American influenced outfits.

For inspiration, we have put together a list of our favourite American style icons across generations, who have made an impact throughout:


Jackie O

She is undeniably one of the greatest style icons in the last century. America might have fallen in love with her style as heir first lady, but its her late 60s, early 70s New York style we love the most!



Prince’s androgynous style has made it possible for fluidity and blurred boundaries within fashion. His theatrical outfits with his pop of colour every here and there made him unforgettable as a style icon and will remain with us forever!


Former Disney star has definitely come to make her mark as a burgeoning style icon today. She may be only 19, but she has proven through her many slays that this is where she belongs.
