24th Jun 2016

As another Fourth of July celebration approaches, barbecue and party invitations roll in. Good company, delicious food, and incredible fireworks give this day its own special dazzle every year. The fireworks, however, do not provide the day’s only wow factor—your patriotic fashion flare will give the rockets’ red glare a run for their money.

As you plan your outfits, embrace the holiday’s traditional colors while adapting your own fashion sense. Read on for cute Fourth of July outfit ideas that will help you celebrate the holiday with flirty and flattering styles.

Pre-Party Casual Style

While Fourth of July is mostly fun and relaxing, there are also plenty of things that need to get done. Spend a little time preparing your home for guests, hand-squeezing a perfect pitcher of lemonade, whipping up your specialty desserts, and running to the market for last minute shopping. These must-dos also include manicures and pedicures so that you can start envisioning complete, cute Fourth of July outfit ideas before the day’s events begin.  

For this holiday, the color choices are obvious, but you can still have a little fun. On the American flag, the red stripes represent hardiness and valor, the white stripes symbolize innocence and purity, and the blue represents justice, vigilance, and perseverance. Choose a nail color which resonates most with you on this particular Independence Day.

For the day’s first cute Fourth of July outfit idea, slip into this American flag tank while you’re running errands and preparing for guests. This tank has a faded, stone-washed effect that vibes well with a pair of denim cut-off shorts. Complete the look with a pair of sandals or casual tennis shoes.

At this point in the day, take it easy on yourself and keep the makeup and jewelry light. Save your energy for the rest of this Fourth of July fashion adventure.

Wrap That Flag Around

If you want to represent the American Flag, but prefer to wear your favorite, breezy tank, take this cute Fourth of July outfit idea and slip on the American Flag Skirt. This patriotic, stretchy mini skirt has red and white stripes, as well as blue sections with twinkling stars.

The American Flag skirt is unlined and made with polyester and spandex. The moisture wicking fabric will pull the sweat away from your body and let it quickly evaporate to keep you cool and flexible in the summer heat.

You can pair this skirt with any shirt, tank, crop top, or blouse. It’s versatile, but works best with a solid black or white top. Complete your outfit with some colorful sneakers for a look that is both comfortable and sexy.

Ready for the Sand!

Once the pampering and other errands are done, let the festivities and beach bumming begin. The right cute Fourth of July outfit idea will be functional and let you transition easily from chaise lounging to an impromptu game of beach volleyball. These blue chambray shorts have a lace-detailed waistband with additional lace around the pockets, making them functional, flirty, and feminine.

Blue chambray often gets confused for denim, but it is woven a bit differently, resulting in a more contemporary appearance. Matching the shorts with a patriotic tank and flat sandals completes the beach wear trifecta: cute, easy to slip on and off, and light enough to be super comfy on a hot day.

The best shirt to match your chambray shorts for this cute Fourth of July outfit idea is the Independence Day tank. It’s all about celebrating the American nation’s bold colors, with a few added twists on the traditional tank. While the red and white striped front is vibrant and made from traditional solid cotton, the back panel drapes just a bit lower for a high-low cut that will harness the most flattering effects of beach breezes. Fashionable on any occasion, this tank is an especially spirited way to ring in the Fourth!

Lunch with the Stars and Stripes

When it’s time for lunch, it’s time for another outfit change. Once you’ve decided on your new flag ensemble, join your family for the festivities. You’ll look comfortable and graceful because of your Free of Worry American Flag Dress or the Red, White, and Boom Tie Dye Dress. These dresses embrace and showcase the boldest patriotic colors you can find.

Falling just above the knee, the Free of Worry American Flag Dress shows off your tan summer legs. Stylishly classic scoop neck cuts subtly accentuate your curves and elongate your neck. The best thing about this cute Fourth of July idea is that it’s playful with just the right amount of flirty, while being comfortable and chic.

Made from a lightweight blend of polyester and spandex, the dress drapes beautifully and will move with you, without being clingy. Complete the outfit with a pair of wedges or your favorite summer sandals and prepare to part the crowds. Add a modest, short chain necklace and a few bangles to dress yourself up because the Fourth deserves your best sparkle and shine.

The sun is beginning to set, so give yourself a pat on the back and ignore those whispers of holiday fatigue. With the sweet smell of barbecue wafting through the air, the rest of this Fourth of July BBQ is going to be amazing.

As proven by the lattice-sided, bright blue Ferris Wheel Blue Romper, cute Fourth of July outfit ideas can be year-long fashion favorites. This romper sits just below the hip line, ensuring that it accentuates all your great curves. The ruffled skirt bounces with an airy appeal and the barely-there back highlights your deep summer tan. Youthful and flirty, this romper is winning at life, and so are you.

The romper’s elegant simplicity makes it a perfect canvas for statement piece accessorizing. High heeled sandals or super sexy wedges are a must for this cute Fourth of July outfit idea, as is an extra-long necklace that hangs just above your waist. Also, add a delicate bracelet and earrings that will shimmer and shine, reminiscent of all those stars on a time-honored flag.
