How to Dress Up for All Your Fourth of July Festivities

We’re all excited to let loose and celebrate freedom this coming Fourth of July weekend, more so because we have an excuse to throw on a cute outfit and look pretty. It doesn’t have to be all stars and stripes—shake up the holiday uniform with fresh silhouettes in red, white, and blue.

Festive or casual, there’s a look for everybody. And depending on the activities you have lined up for the day, it’s best to dress accordingly for the occasion. An all-white ensemble might be perfect for summer, but not so much for an afternoon of outdoor barbecue. Take a peek at our list of outfit ideas that will make you ready to say “Happy birthday, America!” in the most stylish way.


1. The Perfect Day Dress

Shop the Strawberry Fields Puff Sleeve Linen Mini Dress, $131.95

Nothing is more comfortable than a nice flowy dress. They work for any occasion, whether you’re going on a picnic or enjoying a fireworks show. Opt for silhouettes that don’t hug the body too tight, especially if you are going to celebrate with tables of good food and drinks.

2. Nautical & Nice

If you’re celebrating seaside this weekend, you can’t go wrong with nautical hues. Think navy and white in classic styles that Jackie O would be proud to wear, such as cowl neck tops, shirt dresses, and oversized totes.

3.  Go Easy on the Stars & Stripes

Dressing in head-to-toe stars and stripes is not a July 4th requirement. You can totally skip it and opt for checkered prints instead. Plaid can look chic when paired with classic pieces like trousers and midi skirts.

You know what they say, “If you can’t fight them, join them.” Get into the patriotic spirit by incorporating red, white, and blue into your Independence Day outfits. A blue dress paired with a bold, red lip exudes class and elegance and does not look tacky. So, don’t be afraid to combine these colors and get ready to mix and match.

5. Keep It Fresh in a Jumpsuit

Shop the Sukiso Women’s Red Fraise Jumpsuit, $84.95

A jumpsuit is a quintessential piece for summer, which means it’s also a must for your Fourth of July activities. Wear it to a backyard BBQ, pool party, or dressy dinner and you’ll look put together. Finish your ensemble with heels, flats, or trainers and dainty jewelry. Style tip: Match your accessories to your jumpsuit for a fun look.

6. Go Monochrome

Shop the One Shoulder Midi Dress, $48.95

If color combinations are not your strongest suit, pick one shade and rock it from head to toe. A monochrome outfit is always a fashion statement. For example, give an all-blue outfit a pop of color with earrings or a scarf for a playful and party-ready vibe. You can also experiment with textures and patterns. Bottom line: Rules don’t apply here.
