Disclosure: This post was provided by a guest author. 

The Fourth of July isn’t just about showing off your patriotism with fireworks, it’s also about celebrating America’s birthday with the family. Whether you plan to spend the day outside at the local town parade or join in on the fun of an end-of-the-year block party, there are plenty of ways to celebrate in your best American spirit without wearing an outfit that leaves you too hot or cold to enjoy the festivities. 

Just remember to leave those heels at home and keep cool with these ideas for what to wear on the fourth of July!

Patriotic outfits for women

When it comes to honoring our country on Independence Day, there’s nothing quite like a red, white, and blue outfit. You can incorporate your love for America into every outfit you wear with a bit of creative accessorizing. 

July is one of the summer’s hottest months next to August so wearing a sundress or a modest skirt such as one of Sweet Salt’s knee-length skirts with a white shirt will keep you stylish, comfortable, and cool. 

If you wanted to go for something a little more creative you could create a tee shirt design and have them printed for matching attire with your family.

Patriotic outfits for men

There are a few ways to go about creating your Fourth of July men’s fashion look.

You can pair shorts with a short-sleeved shirt in an abstract or classic American flag print and maybe even an embroidered baseball cap. If you prefer something more subtle, choose loose-fitting long pants that you can wear with one of these Lizard Tail waist belts and a polo shirt in the colors red, white, or blue. 

Don’t forget other accessories such as a pair of sunglasses to keep you comfortable while you enjoy the outdoor barbecues with friends and family.

Patriotic outfits for girls

Toddlers can enjoy a festive 4th just as much as their parents, especially when they look great while doing it. 

Pair a knee-length dress such as Presley Couture’s tiered dresses with cute sandals or sneakers and let your little girl show off her American pride with a red, white, and blue color palette. If your little one loves accessories, finish off her look with accessories such as a headband or flag pattern sunglasses. 

As a heads up, bring a pair of leggings in case it gets a little chilly at night while watching the fireworks that she can wear under her dress.

Patriotic outfits for baby

Dressing up for the Fourth of July is about more than picking a cute outfit for your baby –  it’s also about making a statement. 

And if you’re feeling patriotic and American, you want your little one to look like he or she shares your love of country. While the red, white and blue color palette is a must, the outfits don’t have to be the typical stars-and-stripes. Adding a bucket hat in the color white while paired with a red or blue romper is a way to add some fun flair without going overboard. And don’t forget to bring their baby carrier so they can take part in all of the outdoor festivities while keeping them close. 

Closing Thoughts

The 4th of July is almost here, which means fireworks and celebrations! 

If you’re hosting or attending a family party, there are many ways to look festive on Independence Day. You can sport star-spangled accessories from head to toe or wear pieces that incorporate red, white, and blue. 

No matter what your style, make sure to plan ahead so you don’t get stuck in last-minute outfit planning stress. Happy Fourth of July!
