The Fourth of July is right around the corner, meaning Wednesday fireworks, beach bonfires, and backyard barbecues with friends and family are on the horizon. While you may have given some thought about what dish or drink to bring, have you decided what to wear yet? The good news is there’s no need to break the bank, because most of these pieces are already in your closet!

Keep scrolling for a fail-proof shortcut for pulling off a patriotic look.

 

4th of July

Amy Jackson of Fashion Jackson proves you don’t need to wear a bright and daring outfit to make a statement on the Fourth of July. Keep it simple with a white off-the-shoulder top and a pair of red heels.

 

Planning on having a picnic with your best gal pals to celebrate Independence Day? Opt for a romper in a chambray material or a red floral design to keep with the spirit of the season.

 

 

Feel free to get creative with your red, white, and blue outfit combinations. Tip: Start off with a classic pair of white shorts, and work your way upwards with solid blue and red pieces. (Hello, accessories!)

 

Going monochromatic red, white or blue is always a great choice for looking immediately put-together.

 

Break out your favorite patriotic graphic tees to celebrate the holiday!

 

A top with stars or stripes is everything you need for a festive July 4th look! The best part? You don’t need to stick to a certain color scheme to pull off these patterns!
