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. We're here to offer all the Fourth of July outfit ideas you need.
These cool ensembles (modeled by a handful of our favorite trendsetters) 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. Now just cue the fireworks and you're ready to celebrate. Check out the inspiration (along with shopping, of course) below.
Plaid and denim is a classic all-American combination. To dress things up, throw in a pair of fun, glitzy heels.
Available in sizes 23 to 32.
Adding fun splashes of color is a great way to celebrate the holiday. Try adding an eye-catching pair of earrings and a tied-up top to your favorite jeans or skirt.
Available in sizes XS to XXL.
A simply chic white dress is a no-fail way to be both comfortable and cool at your Fourth of July barbecue.
Available in UK sizes 6 to 12.
A star-spangled playsuit is a fun spin on the patriotic theme for the day. Choose a pair of red heels to make the look party-appropriate.
Available in sizes S to L.
Test out two trends at once and style a pair of bold red culottes with an off-the-shoulder top.
Available in sizes 10 to 18.
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, and then swap them for a statement necklace and light jacket for evening.
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.
Available in UK sizes 6 to 16.
Mix prints in coordinated reds and blues for a fashion-forward look.
Available in sizes 12 to 22.
If you'll be running around all day, heels may not be the best option. Style a striped dress with sneakers instead and you can celebrate pain-free.
Available in size S.
Ditch your usual look and swap skinny jeans for a pair of overalls.
Available in sizes XS to L.
Now you're armed with some fresh ideas for the Fourth of July.
