Four Not So Basic Looks To Wear On The Fourth

Red, white, and blue for 4th of July? How original. You can stick to this color scheme this upcoming holiday without over doing it. Retire your stars and striped bodysuit you've worn every July 4th since high school. Go for something a little more elevated and that you can wear all year long. Scroll for what we're wearing this 4th of July (and all summer).

Solid Dress 

Depending on your weekend plans, you can dress up or down a simple mini dress. To show off your holiday spirit, wear a red, white, or blue dress and mix and match accessories. You can wear this outfit well after the 4th.  

Shop Gab Kate Wake Up Call Mini Dress

You NEED this baby blue (and every color) mini dress. Ruched on both sides, it's super flattering and comfortable. Rain or shine, day or night, on a rooftop, boat, or in a backyard, you'll feel good in this dress. 

Pair it with fun star jewelry and oversized sunglasses for that "cool girl" look. 

Shop W.A.P.G. Raya Eyelet Cutout Dress

Not only is it a Hot Girl Summer, it's also a Cowgirl Summer. Your favorite influencers are taking influence from country pop stars and the midwest for fashion inspo. What better time to finally wear your new cowgirl boots then July 4th? Accessorize a white textured dress with red boots for a not so basic outfit. Bright colored sandals or Golden Goose sneakers with a blue star make the perfect addition to your outfit. 

Shop Muche & Muchette Lolita Reversible Bucket Hat

Top off your outfit with a bucket hat. Super cute for the beach or backyard BBQ. Get it in bandana print, tie-dye, or solid.

Matching Set

Sets are perfect for the holiday weekend because you don't need to think about matching pants to a top you already have or vice versa. It already goes! If you want, you can mix a patterned bottom with solid top, but monochromatic is super on trend. A skirt or short set makes you look effortlessly put together.

Bandana print? Check. Wrap skirt and matching top? Check. Get the easiest and most spirited 4th of July outfit before the holiday weekend. This blue set is perfect for rooftop vibes or the beach.

Shop Sunday Stevens Sammi Terry Cloth Top and Bottoms

Having a laid back July 4th? Mood. To stay cozy and still feel like you're celebrating America's independence, put on a terry cloth set, order in a burger with fries, and watch the fireworks from your window.

Patriotic Graphic 

Instead of scrambling for a tee with a tacky phrase the day before your plans, get a cool graphic. Vintage band tees and patriotic prints are perfect additions to your closet and your July 4th look book. Add these to your collection and keep them in rotation all summer.

For that extra patriotic touch, get a blue manicure! Ask for french tips but with a colored (red or blue) tip and neutral or colored base. Nail art is super trendy right now, so make this mani last.
