Represent the flag with your fourth of July outfits
Now, it is important to understand that when we say represent the flag, we don’t mean wearing the American flag from head to toe. The perfect combination is definitely an American flag top with jeans or white trousers or skirt. However, there are other options. If, for example you want to wear a dress, pick a lacey white dress, which is free-flowing so that you are comfortable in it. Then pick a silk scarf or scrunchie or even a bag with the American flag. Any accessory would work as a combination with your dress. That way, you will be stylish, but you will also represent the flag and be dressed just right for the holiday!

Now if you love red or you think red looks good on you, this holiday is the perfect time to showcase that. Once again, it is important to note that you don’t have to wear all red. For example, if you have chosen a red top, you can pair it with jeans or a denim jacket. That way, you will also get that blue infusion you need to represent the colors of the holiday. Another option is to opt for a red dress. Then, you can accessorize it with white or nude, so that the red color is the sole focus of your outfit. Another option is to go for jeans and a simple white top and accessorize in red – red shoes, bag and you can even add a red scrunchie or bandana in there.

Choose blue to celebrate the holiday
Well, the good news is that everything that is denim constitutes blue color. So, that is pretty easy to achieve. Any white or red top, paired with jeans will fit the description of a fourth of July outfit. However, if you love blue color and you want to stand out, a dress in blue might be just what you need. Keep in mind that the blue color that you choose doesn’t have to be exactly the same as the dark blue color on the flag. You can choose a lighter shade of blue and your outfit will still be super patriotic. You can pair it with nude shoes and a bag and add a small red detail – a little scarf tied to your bag or a hair accessory.

Whether you choose a white dress, white trousers or white top, you will have so many combinations available. Pair it with red, blue or both and you will look stunning. What’s more, you can keep the all white outfit and add small details in red or blue. Whether it is a print that has those colors or you choose to have accessories in these colors, your look will definitely be patriotic enough. So, if you want to keep things simple and minimalistic, white is definitely the way to go.
