Can it be? The Fourth of July is only days away? Which means give me all the red, white, and blue, please! I’m typically one who doesn’t dress for holidays. I wear the clothes that work best for that particular day. Often times I forget to wear green on St. Patricks Day or even red on Valentine’s Day.
But there’s something about the Fourth of July that gets me excited about what I’ll wear. Maybe it’s because the holiday is so casual. No pressures to get dolled up or go all out. Heels not included or expected. Layers are minimal, thanks to warm weather. And denim is almost always welcomed.
This year, I’ll be celebrating America at Disneyland—so, hello shorts, sandals, and teeshirts! However, wherever you’ll be, whether that’s at a BBQ, outdoor concert, the beach, or air conditioned home, there’s a red, white, and blue outfit perfectly suited for your destination.
You don’t have to wear a flag teeshirt to represent America. Instead, pull reds, whites, and blues from your closet to create a more organic combination. (Unless flag teeshirts are your jam. Then by all means, rock one!) Here’s my take on each color:
For the red
Red is usually my pop of color in a Fourth of July outfit. I love a subtle nod to red, which means I tend to accessorize with it. So, if this bold color makes you nervous to wear, choose a , , , or as your red addition.
For the white
White is the most versatile to wear in a Fourth of July outfit. This is usually the piece I have the most fun with. A is perfect for an outdoor concert; an is crisp and fun for a day at the beach; a will carry you from an indoor lunch to a night at the park; even a is a fun and chic way to add white to your ensemble.
For the blue
Denim is and will (most) always be my base to any outfit. So choose your poison—whether that’s , , , or , denim is the easiest “blue” to design your Americana outfit around.
