Fourth of July is only a few days away! For a day full of friends, food, and fireworks, it can be hard to pick just the right outfit. We’re here to help make you sparkle for our favorite summer holiday. You want something both Insta-worthy and comfy for a long day of fun. This can definitely be a hard balance to create. Buttt with a few key pieces, you’ll be ready to take on the day! Here is our wrap up of the most perfect Fourth of July outfit ideas out there.

BEAT THE HEAT

Because this All-American holiday falls right in the middle of summer, the heat is unavoidable. First of all, there’s no better summer staple than the sundress. Easy and loose, a sundress allows you to feel light and breezy all day long. It’s simple enough to just throw on but will still make an impact from the afternoon BBQ to the final fireworks.

Since it’s the Fourth of July, you’ll no doubt want to incorporate some red, white, and blue. A fun way to do this is to take advantage of the new gingham trend! The checked pattern is a quick way to stay festive with those classic colors.

PROTECT YOURSELF

We often forget that the sun can become your worst enemy on days like these. Accessories like hats and sunglasses can become a life saver on a hot day. When in doubt, go oversized. The oversized trend has arrived just in time for the summer season and can complete any outfit.

Most importantly, you’ll need sunscreen. Whether we like it or not, sunscreen is the key to surviving a long day of celebration in the sun. Especially for your face. Don’t just rely on the SPF in your foundation or powder. A lightweight, tinted SPF is perfect for looking flawless while still allowing you to reapply throughout the day with little trouble.
