Wearing colors like red white and blue in different ways can be super cute and festive at the same time. It’s time to step up that style and wow your friends with this year’s 4th of July outfit!
1. Bathing Suit
If you are like me and have worn that same American flag bikini top every year on the 4th of July, then it’s time to switch it up. If you are spending your 4th of July poolside or at the beach, you can’t go wrong with a festive bathing suit! Try keeping it simple with a plain red, white, or blue one. This will look super cute and festive as well. You can even switch up the colors and do white bottoms and a blue top! However you like it, this will look so good! You can even wear it with a white cover-up that will be perfect for the occasion! Adding fun accessories to this like a jean jacket, bandana, and sunglasses will add an extra aspect to this outfit.
You can never go wrong with a pair of denim shorts or even some jeans. Since most denim shorts are already light blue this is perfect! If you are looking to have the perfect outfit for the occasion, then denim shorts is what you want! Pair these with a simple white tank top and you are set! Sometimes the simpler the outfit, the better. You don’t want to overdo on the 4th of July accessories, so keeping it plain will go a long way.

4. A Sun Dress
The 4th of July doesn’t always mean dressing up in red white and blue stripes. Try spicing it up this year and getting a cute sundress! They’re so many white sundresses available for occasions like this. If you want to add some accessories to the dress, try adding a pair of cute blue or red sandals to make it more festive! Since it will be warm out, a sundress is perfect for the beach, a BBQ, or going to watch the fireworks. You will need to add a sundress to your shopping list very soon!
5. Red, White, And Blue Stripes
Wearing stripes might be one of the best ideas for your 4th of July outfit! If you are wanting to wear a cute and festive outfit, then break out your favorite red, white, or blue striped shirt and throw it on! A striped tank top is such a cute look that is easy to pair with other pieces. You can wear this with denim shorts, white shorts, or even a cute skirt. If you do not have a stripped tank top, a pair of striped shorts work just as well! With a white top, this look can be so perfect for any event. This is a great way to show some 4th of July pride and look great at the same time!
The 4th of July can be a time where you get creative with your outfit! If you are looking to have an original outfit, then try tie-dyeing a t-shirt. Get red, white, and blue dye and get designing. It will come out so cool and will be just right for the occasion! You can crop the shirt if you want and wear it with some high rise jean shorts. This will be a casual but super cute outfit!
7. DIY Outfit
Are you feeling extra creative? Well, go find an old pair of jeans or jean shorts and start turning them into the greatest 4th of July outfit ever! Start by planning some ideas on what to do to them and then execute! You can draw or paint a flag, stars, or even stripes. Another idea is to sew on little patches and make your jeans super cute! There are so many ways to get a cute design onto your jeans. If you get transfer paper and print out stars or whatever print you would like, you can easily iron on the print! This is a great idea that will be fun to put together and will be perfect for the 4th of July.
