We’re going to let you in on a little secret: you don’t have to wear a literal flag to show your patriotic spirit this 4th of July. Instead, we suggest looks that are a little more “America the beautiful” and less “MURICA!” Here to inspire you are 5 cute outfit ideas for celebrating the 4th in style.
Red, White & New
A party on the patio calls for fun, of-the-moment details. Swap out your basic white tee for a white blouse with ruffles and pair it with denim with red racer stripes. It’s the perfect balance of sporty and sweet with a festive twist.
Sweet Cami + High Rise Denim
This red and blue outfit proves that you can show off your patriotism while still looking chic. Relaxed denim with a sweet camisole will keep you comfortable and cool when you’re settling in to enjoy the fireworks.
Breezy Dress + Denim Jacket
Escape the city to enjoy a day of sunshine and swimming, with sparklers and s’mores by night. Throw a breezy dress on as a swimsuit cover-up and when you’re ready for a bonfire under the stars, layer with a lightweight denim jacket.
A denim mini is a great alternative to your go-to blue jeans. Paired with a classic tee, it’s a fail-proof combo for celebrating. Top off this backyard BBQ-appropriate look with a hat or your favorite shades so you can enjoy hours of fun in the sun.
Simple Stripes + Sneakers
A casual tank in classic stripes is just the thing for staycation-ing, plus, it’s an easy piece you’ll reach for all summer long. Pair it with shorts and sneakers and head around town to watch the parade and explore local landmarks.
