July 4 might be known for casual, summertime fun. But, if you happen to be heading out to a fancy affair, there are other Independence Day themed clothing options.
If you were ever looking for a good holiday to dress up as a family, the 4th of July is your day! If you want to keep things subtle, just wear anything in red, white, and blue. They're probably three of the easiest colors to find- and they look good on just about everybody.
But the 4th of July can also be a good time to pump up the style volume and have fun with dressing your kids up in patriotic apparel. This is a holiday when more is more- it's a day of fireworks and freedom from traditional fashion rules. So wear those stars and stripes together! Try out a red white and blue necklace that lights up! Some American Flag pants, perhaps? Oddly enough, the 4th of July is a day when you might actually blend in more with the crowd if you're wearing a loud, patriotic pattern than you would in a neutral green or gray.
A 4th of July dress up can be a lot of fun if you can find the right fashion! But there are still ways to celebrate if your style is a little subtler. Instead of splashes of bright color or an American flag-inspired skirt, pick a pair of shoes to add color. You could also choose an accessory, like a bracelet or a necklace that celebrates the day’s motif. And, if all else fails, try painted nails with the stars and stripes. It may not be as obvious, but it’s sure to impress!
Independence Day is one of the most popular holidays in the USA, and it can really fun to get into the spirit of things donning red, white, and blue. Whether you’re keeping it subtle or wearing a vibrant 4th of July flag dress (or flag shorts), there’s a perfect option for every occasion. And, you can always choose festive accessories if you don’t want to chance it. But honestly, the vast majority of patriotic clothes are easy to wear every day of the year, like a navy and white Breton striped tee, or the perfect pair of red shoes. So you don't need to take a fashion risk in order to get in the spirit.
