July 4 will definitely be interesting this year, but it won’t stop me from celebrating. I’m especially looking for a good excuse to do something out of the ordinary these days and the holiday presents the perfect opportunity. Whether it’s a small BBQ or a picnic in the park, you should definitely take advantage too. It happens to fall on a Saturday this year, which means that even if you don’t have plans lined up, you’ll probably be out on the porch or at a park enjoying the heat. With that in mind, here are some ideas on what to wear for 4th of July this year!
White With A Pop of Red
Not in the mood for a full-blown patriotic look? No problem, just add a pop of red to a monochromatic white outfit and you’re good to go. This can be in the form of an over shirt, quilted sandals, or a mini bag. If it’s too hot for denim, just opt for denim cutoffs and you’ll be good in the heatwave. I love that it’s subtle, chic, but incorporates a bit of that American flair.
If you want to be even more subtle with the patriotic ensemble, then you really can’t go wrong with a summer dress or blouse. Amp it up for Independence Day with tie-strap details. It’s such a brilliant way to draw attention to the neckline and makes for an incredibly feminine look. I’m a fan of flowy midi dresses at the moment, but you can also pair a bodysuit with a ruffle skirt.
Jumpsuit + Sporty Sandals
For an easy, breezy yet casual, cool look, pair a jumpsuit or romper with edgy sandals. You can get really creative here and add chic summer prints into the mix like gingham and statement florals – or simply go with a bold number. The mix of feminine and masculine elements will surely put you in the spotlight.
One Piece Swim + Large Sun Hat
If you’re anything like me, then public pools, water parks, and beaches are far out of reach for a while. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t slip into a cute swimsuit! Turn on the sprinklers for the kids or set up a blow up pool and chill in the backyard. Just don’t forget a floppy sun hat and your favorite book!
Still can’t decide on what to wear for 4th of July? My last recommendation is to throw on some stripes and call it a day. It doesn’t have to be red, white, and/or blue either! Stripes exude that Americana vibe yet feel minimalistic at the same time so you can literally pull it off all throughout the season. A matching set or maxi dress will get you through the entire weekend in style.
