Here are a few style suggestions that will have you seeing stars (and stripes).

Positively Patriotic in Red, White and Blue Denim

Curious if you can wear denim when the weather warms up? Absolutely. A pair of cut-off blue denim shorts offer a relaxed and carefree vibe to your 4th of July outfits. Add a patriotic flair by opting for a tee in white or red or a printed, shoulder-baring blouse. Cropped tops are trending for the season, so dare to bare your midriff this summer. Wondering what to wear to a 4th of July barbeque if red, white and blue don’t suit your skin tone? Try a similar color. You’ll look equally spirited in an orange and navy or pink and white combo.

Stylist Tip: Notice a barbecue stain on your white T-shirt? Combat outdoor stains by tucking a stain dissolving laundry pen into your straw tote. Dab your tee (or other article of clothing) as soon as you spot a blemish to make sure it will come clean in the wash. Now, you are ready to dive into a bowl of watermelon without a worry.

What to Wear on 4th of July? Wide-Leg Pants for the Win

Keep breezy wide-leg pants in mind when deciding what to wear on 4th of July. The flowy silhouette is picnic-worthy and will keep you cool all day long. Roll out an outdoor blanket to spend the day in the grass before catching the fireworks show. Looking for how to wear wide-leg pants for a celebratory affair? Pair them with an airy blouse and strappy espadrille sandals. Leave the bold star and stripe print combo to the American flag. Opt for a subtle striped top paired back to bold red kicks. Don’t forget a lightweight layer for the evening as you watch the fireworks take flight.

Soak up the Sunshine in a Summer Sundress

Going to a 4th of July beach bonfire? Make a splash in a sundress. Play up your 4th of July outfit by mixing prints. Slip a ruffled midi dress over your swimsuit and add block-heel sandals.

Mix micro prints with bigger patterns for an ensemble that pops like a firecracker.

Toss sunglasses and SPF into an oversized tote and a portable speaker to blast music while you party in the USA.
