Red, White and You: Amazing Americana Fits for Your Fourth

The holiday is just around the corner and from picnic to fireworks, we’ve got 10 great outfits that look stylish, not over-festive

The fourth of July is back, with big parades, community fireworks and all kinds of get togethers from small family gatherings to large groups. All of us are ready to get out and celebrate!

That said, our intrepid fashion editors are once again offering up some fantastic outfits that will have you looking stylishly festive for your holiday.

So let’s get started!


Most of us spend our daytime on the fourth in the outside. Hot temps, lots of fun activities…it’s no wonder that shorts are the most popular clothing item. So here’s our take on some great short combos you’ll love…

The fireworks aren’t the only thing that’ll sparkle this fourth. Windsor’s lace up crop top in bright red is perfectly matched with this season’s Joe’s Jeans x Stephanie Gottlieb’s fantastic Ozzie shorts. More bling? Yes, please! Zenni’s cherry red, cat eye shades are peppered with dozens of micro-rhinestones. And speaking of stones, we finish this look with BP’s multi-beaded slides and Glaze Jewelry’s bursting star dangles.



For this next fit, we channel a little nautical with this blue and white striped romper. Comfy combed cotton and easy sizing will keep you cool as the temperature soar. With such a great one-and-done piece, all that’s truly left is to add in some complementary pops of color. In this case we’re craving the combo of M. Gemi’s fun flatform, Zenni’s ruby-rimmed browlines and Dagne Dover’s grab-n-go mini backpack. Still, we just couldn’t help ourselves when it comes to adding some ice on a hot day and so we finish this fit with Gem & Harmony’s blue and white diamond hoops.



This fit vibes pure Americana. We start with Windsor’s dark denim corset top and pair it with Summersalt’s super soft terry shorts. Keeping things patriotically playful, we add Dooney & Bourke’s red and white striped crossbody and Blenders new addition to their Meister X2 collection, the United We Blend sunnies. All that’s left is to layer some pieces from Kendra Scott. We chose her Greta Y Necklace and the Bailey chunky chain.




Prefer a summer dress for your holiday? We’ve got looks that’ll show your stars and stripes without making you look like you took the flag and turned it into a maxi dress (unless that’s your thing, in which case – go for it!).

For our first fit we chose this soft, denim blue mini sundress from Windsor. We love how flirty and playful it looks, and with its open back, it’s sure to keep you cool. We’ve paired it with a darling double layer necklace from Americana that sports a pearl seed choker with red and blue seed flowers and a flag-inspired butterfly. Speaking of flags, these red and white striped slides from Beek are definitely giving off some Old Glory vibes. Bonus, they’re made of ergonomic foam, giving you comfort as you step. All that is left is to slide on a pair of dreamy, mirror-polished aviators from Blenders.

This next fit will have you looking red hot. Summersalt’s breezy tunic mini dress looks amazing by itself, but when we add some fun accessories, it really turns into one great 4th fit. Nina’s sexy espadrille sandals and Knockaround’s red, white and blue inspired sunglasses are festive without going too kitschy. Balance out the outfit with luxe pieces, in this case Karl Lagerfeld’s chic backpack/crossbody bag and some carved wood block earrings.



Show off your own fireworks with this sexy shift dress from Boston Proper. The loose fit and super breathable fabric makes it a great choice for beating the heat. We pair it with some creamy Nina sandals and Palm Angels oval frame sunglasses. Amir Slama’s charming red flower earrings and Chloe’s blue and raffia bag add just a dash of color.



If your holiday fun includes celebrating by the water, this next fit will have you showing your stripes in style. Summersalt’s smocked maxi is a blue and white striped beauty of a cover up you can wear all day (comes in sizes up to 2X). To this we add some patriotic shield sunnies by Blenders and a comfy pair of 100% waterproof sandals by Reef, and these cute cowrie earrings we found at Target for an absolute steal. Finally, to keep all your necessities in easy reach, this textured beach bag by Bunulu is made of sturdy canvas that can stand up to the sand.



If your Fourth festivities are less BBQ and more private party, you still want to create a celebratory look, just a bit more upscale. Here are some fantastic inspiration outfits that are both posh and patriotic.

This cobalt blue, wrap-around knit jumpsuit from Sugarlips has jumping for joy. It pairs beautifully with Dita Eyewear’s handcrafted, titanium pilot sunglasses. Infusing the look with some additional R,W&B spirit is Marni’s new season crystal embellished bracelet. Keep the luxe going with a Thom Browne red evening clutch and slip into Donald Pliner’s red party heels.



This next fit features Sachin & Babi’s sweetly romantic flutter dress, all decked out in red, white and blue. Soft, velvety blue Manolo flats will keep you comfortably on your toes as you navigate through the social crowds. Need a little more color pop? You’ve got it with Eye Candy LA’s cherry drop earrings, Grey Ant’s true blue shades and last but certainly not least, Balmain’s red, white and gold clutch bag from the brand’s newest season.

For our last luxe look, we go all out with a tailored white suit by Tagliatore. To this, we paired Madison’s festive red metallic t-shirt, which is made in Italy by hand by a successive process of foil overlaying to achieve the perfect results. What more could you want? How about a cherry clutch bag from Alexander McQueen, some sparkly, navy heels and a playful twist with Baublebar’s Champagne earrings!
