Fourth of July Outfit Inspiration

I'm honestly in disbelief that there's less than a week till the Fourth of July! June has gone by so fast but I am very glad that there's still two full months until my senior year begins. The Fourth is one of those days were it's not only ok but encouraged to wear red, white, and blue all in one outfit but if your style is on the preppy/nautical side like yours truly this probably happens all the time anyways ;)

I always have a hard time picking an outfit for the Fourth because I own a plethora of white and blue but have a shortage of red in my closet. For me, my outfit for this holiday needs to be comfy but also cute and fun! Last year, I wore this outfit as I was in Alabama visiting family but this year I'm stumped on what to wear as we will be in Hawaii, any suggestions?

If you're in the same boat that I am, I put together a few different options that would all be perfect for the holiday!


If you have plans that are a bit more dressy for the Fourth like going to a country club for dinner and fireworks or you just want to dress cute for the occasion (totally relate on that!), this Vineyard Vines dress is perfect! Add a pair of navy Jack Rogers, fun Kendra Scott earrings, and a bag to hold the necessities and you're ready to go!


Definitely the most versatile of the three looks as this outfit can be worn for just about every Fourth of July outing from a casual barbecue at a friend's house to watching fireworks at a local park to hosting a small get together to hanging out with family. Plus, who can say no to fun, printed Lilly shorts?


If a beach, a lake, or a pool is in your picture for the Fourth of July, this is the outfit for you. This cute J. Crew bikini can be worn all summer long (not just for the Fourth) and the American flag towel adds a patriotic element to your ensemble, not to mention the limitless Instagram opportunities!

What are you wearing for the Fourth of July? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I'll be at the lake, so I have a red polka dot bikini to wear during the day and a super fun tee to wear with some navy chinos at night! I loved all the outfits you put together!

  2. If you're going to be in Hawaii for the Fourth, chances are that it will be pretty breezy outside, so I would suggest wearing a lightweight, flowy dress or a pretty top and some shorts. When I was there, the temperatures were always wonderful because of the lovely trade winds, but they do make for some outfit and hair hassles! Hope this helps!

  5. Love this striped swimsuit! It's perfect for a hawaiian fourth of july and versatile enough to wear all year. I always feel weird buying something for specifically the fourth because I can only wear it once, so this swimsuit is perfect for that!
