What to Wear on the Fourth of July: Three Chic, Patriotic Outfits for the Girl on a Budget

Fourth of July Outfit Ideas on a Budget
Growing up, my family always loved shopping for holiday outfits. They also loved matching my sisters and me. While I didn’t necessarily love the matching, I did love shopping with festive intentions, and often my favorite holiday to shop for was the Fourth of July. I loved picking out what I would wear to celebrate my nation’s freedom. So this year, get ready for your outfit to go off with a bang and shine bright like fireworks.

The Laid-back Lady

This look is for the lady who doesn’t feel like she needs to go all stars-and-stripes to celebrate. It’s super simple and can be pulled off by anyone. All you need to do is pair up some comfy navy pants with a simple tank. Pull it all together with a pair of white slide sandals and a basic tote (this one has blue stripes for festive flair).

The Beach Babe

You might not be spending your Fourth of July on land, but you can still support your country while beachside. Just wear a striped swimsuit and a brightly colored cover-up with a pair of summer-inspired sandals. Bring along all your beachside necessities in a cute graphic bag. Don’t forget your hat or your sunscreen!

The Glamour Gal

Maybe your Fourth of July calls for something a little more sophisticated (or you just want to dress up). It’s so easy to dress up and still show your patriotism. Go for a red, white, and blue dress and some matching heels. Bring the whole outfit together with some dangling gold earrings and neutral clutch.
