Showing your pride on the Fourth of July involves one important tradition (besides the barbecue, of course): dressing in your best all-American outfit. For 24 hours, everyone is draped in red, white, and blue, but there are ways to stand out from the crowd without giving up your signature style.
These blogger-approved ensembles all fit in with the day's theme without ever feeling cheesy or over the top. From a casual tee-and-cutoffs combo to something slightly dressier, these looks will help you stand out come Independence Day!
Read on for inspiration and to shop the styles!

A lightweight minidress is a fun and easy piece you can take from day to night. Style it with a pair of red sunglasses while you're hanging by the pool, then swap them for a statement necklace and light jacket for evening.
On Grasie Mercedes: The Fifth dress; French Connection boots.
If you want to embrace the day without going all out, choose a printed dress with the right color palette but an unusual pattern. Then dress it down with a denim jacket and black booties.

On Christine Andrew: Ily Couture tee.
