While each family has its own traditions and ways to celebrate this patriotic day, some of the classic ways are with beach days, fireworks, BBQs, campfires, delicious American food, and all things the USA. With flags and fireworks galore, this patriotic holiday is one of the best opportunities of the year to get your red, white, and blue on and have a good time.
As with so many holidays, we believe in dressing to impress. While you don’t have to wear an actual American flag, you can get into the patriotic mood with these outfit idea inspirations and still have something fabulous to wear to the party.
What better way is there to dress patriotic than by wearing the signature red, white, and blue? These classic American colors that make up the United States flag are a great way to pay tribute to July 4th without having to dress like a flag. Easy to integrate into any outfit, red, white, and blue are classic colors that will look great for your Independence Day celebrations. Even just wearing one or two of these colors will show that you’re here to celebrate.
An easy way to do this is to wear a pair of blue jeans, a red shirt, and a pair of white sandals for a subtle yet noticeable look that’s perfect to wear to a BBQ or any other laid-back July 4th celebration. Alternatively, find yourself a fun women’s dress that comes in white and blue and top it off with a red accessory such as a fashion scarf, belt, or purse. It’s easy enough to get creative with integrating these patriotic colors into your 4th of July outfits without needing to look like a flag.
Wear classic white for the ultimate sophisticated summer look that’s perfect for the 4th of July. White is always a light, airy, and classy choice for Independence Day celebrations. Wear a pair of white trousers with a white button-up women’s linen shirt for a great summer look that’s perfect for just about any 4th of July activity. Make it patriotic by incorporating small details such as an American flag brooch, a pair of red and blue shoes, a red belt, or a red, white, and blue striped scarf. The original suffragettes also wore the classic all-white, making it a patriotic look with a fashionable twist on social justice.
The 4th of July is truly your day to go all out with how much you love your country. Rocking stars, stripes, and the flag itself are not just okay, it’s encouraged. Many Americans love to celebrate the 4th, wearing the best American flag look they can find. This often includes American flag T-shirts, swimsuits, men’s board shorts, pants, sweatshirts, and just about anything else you can imagine. If you love to go all-out patriotic for July 4th, then definitely grab your favorite flag piece and rock it.
If looking like a walking flag isn’t your thing, then that’s perfectly okay, too. There are other ways to incorporate the flag into what you’re wearing. Wearing the flag's colors is a classic way to feel like you’re integrating something patriotic into your July 4th celebration outfit. Additionally, try adding accents of stars and or stripes for a more low-key play on the flag. For example, wearing a blue-and-white striped dress or a pair of pants with little stars printed on them are great ways to subtly get patriotic for your Independence Day outfit.
Summer dresses are always a great choice for the 4th of July. Make your summer dress more patriotic by choosing to wear a color in the theme for the day. A cute outfit choice is to wear a blue summer dress tied at the waist with a starry scarf or star-printed belt. Also, wearing a white summer dress with red shoes and a denim jacket is a perfect July 4th look that’s patriotic without going over the top. Alternatively, wear a red dress with blue-and-white prints to rock another low-key patriotic look.
Many people love to spend the 4th of July at the beach and tend to rock patriotic swimsuits to celebrate the day. Another all-American look that isn’t necessarily the flag is the nautical aesthetic. Nautical is as American as apple pie and is a fabulous way to wear something for the 4th of July that feels patriotic but doesn’t necessarily include a flag. Navy blue swimsuits with white stripes, anchors, or red accents are the perfect nautical swimwear look that will feel patriotic without being tacky.
One thing as American as the flag is probably the American love for denim. Jeans are part of American culture in such a deeply rooted way that the 4th of July is the perfect occasion to wear your favorite pair of women’s jeans. Choose a pair that’s light-washed and perfect for summer. For those hot days, opt for a pair of denim shorts. Either way, your jeans are going to look perfect with a classic T-shirt.
Another all-American favorite, the classic tee paired with jeans, is just about as American laid-back cool as it gets. Choose a smart white T-shirt or linen T-shirt, or any shade of red and blue for a great patriotic look perfect for the 4th of July. Jeans and a T-shirt are especially great for outdoor activities such as campfires, BBQs, and watching the fireworks.
Enjoy this 4th of July to the max by wearing an outfit that is just as patriotic as the day itself. Get creative with colors, prints, and styles to find the look that’s best for you. When selecting your outfit, keep in mind what activities you have planned for the day to choose best what to wear. If you’ve got several plans, then feel free to choose several outfits for your 4th of July celebrations.
