While you want to look patriotic, you probably don’t want to cross the line into “overdoing it” territory, if you know what we mean – you want to celebrate Independence Day but not in an “I look like Uncle Sam” kind of way.

So if you’re looking at your wardrobe and wondering: what do I wear? Don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of super chic 4th of July outfit ideas to turn up the celebrations without looking cheesy.

4th of July Outfits

The Basics

Red, white, and blue should be the dominant colors in your look for the most patriotic holiday – build your look around those colors! Show your spirit with a star-patterned blouse and red and white striped jeans, or switch it up with a striped top and star-printed shorts. You can build on that theme with star sneakers or tone it down with a pair of  simple white tennis shoes.

Cool & Casual

For a casual look that’s still festive, try pairing a white eyelet shirt or white tank top with denim shorts and red slide sandals or sneakers. You can add accessories to elevate this look, like a red, white, or blue bandana and some sparkly earrings!

Dressy & Patriotic

Rocking gingham is a major style key to embracing the all-American vibe of the fourth of July. Gingham is a super popular trend for spring and summer, so what better time to rock it than in celebration of Independence Day? Gingham is also easy to mix and match with a pair of denim bottoms so you can opt for a cute, breezy blouse or a dress. It’s a great pick for casual, outdoor celebrations that can also be easily dressed up in a trusted pair of heeled sandals.

Add a red handbag to make the look pop!

An effortless, foolproof outfit combination is a statement blouse and casual bottoms, such as white trousers or denim. For July 4th, go for a patterned shirt or one with bold stripes with a prominent shade of red, white, or blue to stay on theme. Pair these with jeans, white pants, sneakers or low-heeled sandals. Top off the look with a red, white, and blue jeweled statement necklace and fun oversized hoop earrings!
