The long Fourth of July weekend is upon us. You’ve probably already made your plans, but if not, we created a list of options for you. Baseball games, backyard barbeques, and fireworks may be on your agenda for the weekend, but what are you going to wear? Red, white, and blue will be the obvious colors of choice to celebrate America’s Independence, but you may not want to look like a walking flag. Here are some outfit options to inspire your fashion decisions this weekend. And here’s a bonus: all options are from local shops.
Off-the-shoulder top, cutoffs, and lace-up wedges.
Colorful shorts and a lace top are perfect for the July heat.
Play on patterns and layer accessories.
Accessories to dress up any outfit:
Twine & Twig
The blue hues will add patriotic flair to any outfit.
These shell rings will add mermaid flair to any July 4th event.
Mila Rose Jewelry
These neutral color necklaces would stand out with a red top or dress.
Be subtle on the 4th with a blue purse or a white watch.
