What to Wear for the 4th of July

4th of July outfit

4th of July is still somewhat new to me since I was raised in Panama, but over the years I’ve learned to embrace and enjoy the American holiday. It always feels like the official start of summer, and I love that it’s a long weekend full of sun, BBQs, pool time, and hanging out with friends – oh and fireworks!

I’m not a huge fan of looking matchy-matchy to the flag or anything, but I do like to put together an outfit that’s festive yet chic. Something you can easily hangout in at a party or throw over a bathing suit since the holiday is usually pretty casual.

There’s a ton of cute stuff out right now to celebrate summer style, and I’ve picked out my favorite pieces that would be perfect for this weekend, or any to follow. I especially love gingham for 4th of July outfits, or incorporating denim, red or white in some capacity (just not all at once).

Here’s inspiration from past looks of mine for chic yet festive 4th of July outfits, followed by shoppable items! If you need new swimsuits for the occasion, I’ve got you covered here.
