Big weekend ahead. You’ve got barbecues, parades, ombré ice-cream cakes and exploding fire to look forward to. Rifling around the back of your closet for that flag tee? Not so much.

Consider elevated outfit combos that still give a patriotic vibe.

MIX UP YOUR NAUTICAL STRIPES

Take a cue from Olivia Munn and buck the expected fisherman sweater and boat shoes. Instead, pair a striped tank with a patterned skirt (preferably in a poppy red) and turn some heads.

BUST OUT THE GINGHAM

Or follow Emmy Rossum’s lead and go with the trendiest print of the season--the all-American gingham. (Though, we have no idea what's going on with that purse.)  If you haven’t yet snagged a vintage-esque dress, you can create the same effect with your dude’s J.Crew button-up (tied at the waist, of course).

PICK TWO OUT OF THREE

Hey, it’s OK if you’re not sporting red, white and blue. Two hues will do. Think: your favorite white cotton skirt and your tried-and-true chambray.

OR GO ENTIRELY MONOCHROMATIC

Then again, you really can never go wrong with all white. If you’re itching for some color, add a swipe of red lipstick. That way, no one can call you out for shirking your patriotic duty.
