What to Wear on the Fourth of July

When considering what to wear on America’s Independence Day, the weather, activities planned, and setting should all be factors. Since it is summer, the outfit should be breathable and appropriate for warm weather, yet should have a cozy alternative for watching fireworks at night (i.e., denim jacket, shawl, light cardigan, etc.). If the festivities will take you from dry land to the water ensure your outfit is versatile and functional to allow for a fun and relaxing day.

This outfit idea consists of high-waisted denim shorts and a buttoned down, front-tie shirt featuring the American flag. A double buckle belt adds a Western element to the outfit and the red and blue stripes on the white converse continue the USA flag theme. A Hunter backpack holds a two-piece swimsuit, braided sandals, and other poolside essentials. This outfit is perfect for a celebration that involves both in and out of water activities, such as a cookout by the pool.

A white, front-tie shirt is paired with an asymmetrical denim skirt, white wedges, and a round straw bag. The white shirt, blue denim, and red straw bag are a subtle nod to the flag. Cognac slides can be substituted for the white wedges if the occasion calls for more comfortable footwear. A one-shoulder red, white, and blue swimsuit is a festive option for a pool party. This can be worn under the skirt and top ensemble or carried in a red netted bag along with other beach essentials to change into afterwards.

A chambray romper with a festive fanny pack and sneakers is ideal for a family get-together, a cookout at the park, or a day at a theme park. Red converse are an alternative to the featured Golden Goose sneakers. A white head wrap can ensure your hair stays out of your face when viewing the fireworks and these fun red shades ensure you stay true to the patriotic color palette.
