4 Outfit Tips for the 4th of July

4th of july

Looking for some fashionable ways to rock the red, white, and blue? Create a fireworks-worthy 4th of July outfit with these four tips.

1. Pledge Allegiance to Patterns
Take a cue from our flag and flaunt stars and stripes (or even polka dots)! From color-blocked styles to classic sailor stripes to actual American-flag-inspired pieces, patterns punch up your look in an instant.

2. Spangle Yourself With Colorful Accessories
Shoes, belts, scarves, bags, and statement necklaces are an easy way to work red, white, and blue into your look. For sparkler-caliber twinkle, add a piece of metallic jewelry.

3. Feel Free to Play With Shades
Red, white, and blue may be the textbook 4th of July colors, but why not expand the spectrum? Turquoise and coral are just as festive, perfect for summer, and will stand out at any parade, BBQ, or beach bash.

4. Make a Bang With Basics
Classic blue jeans, crisp white cotton, flirty red dresses—these are just a few examples of basics you might already have that make a festive foundation for an Independence Day outfit. Use the tips above to finish your look, and you’ll be 4th-of-July perfect.

  1. I received the tank version of the Landers Lattice dress in my most recent fix, and it’s my favorite Stitch Fix item yet. :) My stylist Alisha totally rocks.

  2. I’m attracted to slideshow look #2 with the red maxi dress, which not only looks comfy but also looks flattering and with a pop of color!
