There are less than two weeks until the 4th of July, and this summer is already going by too fast! The Fourth has always felt like a marker of how much of the summer is left. It comes around so quickly each year and makes me want to rewind just a little so I can have a few extra weeks of summer. This year we’re spending our holiday weekend in Nantucket, and I could not be more excited!
As for what to wear, there are so many great outfit ideas for the Fourth of July! I love that you really can’t go wrong as long as you stick to red, white, and blue, ha! I’ve shared some of my past outfits in a previous blog post, but I know everyone has their own Fourth of July traditions, so I wanted to share a few more ideas inspired by occasions.
FOURTH OF JULY OUTFIT IDEAS
Grilling out for the Fourth of July is such a fun way to spend the day, and I love having a big meal with friends and family. For backyard cookouts, a simple outfit like this would be my choice! A red eyelet blouse with jean shorts is a great combination to stay cool in, and you can always style this outfit with white jeans if shorts aren’t your thing or you want to make this look a little dressier.
This might be a little closer to what my Fourth of July outfit will look like this year! For a day at the beach (or lake), a red swimsuit with a striped navy rash guard is the way to go. Add a sunhat, waterproof slides, and don’t forget your sunscreen!
Last but not least, for a more fancy occasion or dinner out, a blue dress with espadrille wedges is a classic! Add a red lip and a pair of statement earrings for a pop of red to complete the look.
