7 Sophisticated and Festive July 4th Outfit Ideas
July 4 is approaching faster than you know it. This year, the holiday falls on a Saturday, meaning even if you’re not planning to attend the usual neighborhood barbecue, you’ll probably be stepping out to spend at least part of the day enjoying the summer weather. Here are seven elevated outfit combos that are a refreshing change from that old flag tee you unearth from the back of your closet every year.
1. Pick Two Out of Three
Don't own much blue? Don't stress, you can totally keep the color out of your outfit. In fact, any combination from the trio (blue with white, red with blue, etc.) will look just as festive without being quite so on the nose.
4. Try some Unexpected Prints
Swap stars for leopard spots and switch stripes for plaid; so long as you stick to the OG color scheme, you'll fit right in with all the flag-adorned folks while watching the fireworks.
7. Keep it Streamlined
So you actually have the perfect shorts for such a specific holiday? Tuck in a structured button-down and take your look from costume-y to classy.
