1Cropped Couture

Looking for a cute outfit to enjoy the summer sun in? Crop tops and shorts are a go-to for girls this Fourth of July! Dress it up with sandals or go for a more casual look with sneakers.

2Everything’s Rosy With Rompers

Rompers allow you to be playful and sporty while also enabling you to be girly and chic in a moment’s notice. They’re very breathable, making them comfortable for an outing in the July heat.

One of the most popular trends of this year is tucking in a denim top to a more feminine skirt. Or, like the picture, you could mesh the two styles together by wearing a blue jean jacket! This will definitely bring a more rustic American feel to your look.

4Athletic Avenue

If your family celebrates the Fourth of July by having a big sports game, showing up in a tee and athletic shorts is perfect! If you want to refine your look, put a lot of thought into which sneakers you want to finish off the look with.

5Sundress Success

Sundresses are flawless outfits because they are so versatile. Paired with a flowy hat and sandals, they can be dressed up, whereas a pair of sunglasses and bare feet can make your look more organic.

Overalls are one of our favorite ways to make a look cute and fashion-forward. This outfit hardly takes any prep time, but add a pair of Keds and ankle-high socks and you will be the starlet of the party. Definitely have fun with your accessories!

7Americana Apparel

Be bold by dressing in stars and stripes for the holiday. Not only will you draw a lot of attention, but everyone will be in awe at how well you pull off the patterns! You can draw inspiration from one the flag’s patterns or make an awesome mash of both.

Spending the holiday on the water, whether it be at the beach, pool, or lake, can lead to memories that you’ll treasure for the rest of your life. Picking out a special bathing suit for the occasion inspired by the colors of the flag can add to the fun and hype of preparing for the getaway.

11Color Wheel

For a fun color-coordinating opportunity with your friends, assign each party attendee a color of the flag. This is a simple way to ensure everyone is spirited for the holiday, and also provides an avenue into lots of photo opportunities with guests who normally aren’t a fan of pictures.

To be cool and comfortable all day long, dress in a tank top and jean shorts for a sleek look. To take it from boring to brilliant, be creative with your choice of tank top, or consider adding on a lightweight cardigan!

Instead of pulling inspiration from the country’s flag, add some floral patterns to your look to celebrate the summer. We’re totally in love with the way that the floral design is worked into the outfit here, and would advise you do the same to look stylish and smart.

14Sporty And Strong

There’s nothing that screams nationalism more than a Team USA jersey. The cool thing about wearing a jersey is that you can make it retro or up-to-date, depending on which year’s jersey you decide to sport.

18T-Shirt Treasure

T-shirt dresses are a major trend right now and would look amazing on the Fourth of July. They are nice enough to eat a beautiful meal with your family, but also casual enough to get dirty, if necessary.

19Kimono Kit

Imagine laughing with your friends as the cool summer breeze ripples through your kimono. Pair it with a tank top, cut-off shorts, and lace-up sandals for a sweet indie look.

20All Black

Honestly, who doesn’t look good in all black? Be elegant by having all of your guests dress up in all black, or, for a fun holiday activity, have everyone wear old black tees and fill water balloons with either glow in the dark or neon paint and forever have a keepsake of the party with a beautiful spattered shirt!

Will flower crowns ever go out of style? They are so beautiful and can be a super fun activity for you and your friends to make. They are so customizable, as you can determine the color, size, and spacing of the flowers.

32Lovely In Lace

For a relaxed look, tuck in a flowy shirt to a lux pair of lace shorts. The great thing about this look is that you probably have all of these pieces in your closet so there’s no additional need to buy anything new! For hairstyle, try a messy high pony or a dutch braid.

33White Dress

There is no way to look more graceful or joyous than waltzing into your Independence Day activities with a white dress on. To add a touch of grunge, add some Doc Martens and lace socks to peep out of them.


High-to-low skirts bring a sophisticated feel to your outfit and flatter your legs by making them look much longer and skinnier. It’s easy to find a navy skirt, such as this one, and looks really good with a striped pattern shirt and clunky sandals.
