What to Wear for the 4th of July

Hello and happy Friday! I hope everyone has Monday and Tuesday off and can enjoy a super long weekend. Even if you have to work, I hope you have some fun plans.

July 4th is next week, and many of us here in the States have picnics and parades and cookouts to attend so this is the obligatory what to wear for the 4th of July post, ha!

Of course the obvious answer is some combination of red, white and blue, but you don’t have to wear all three colors. I mean, you don’t have to wear any of them if you don’t want to, but what fun is that? Some of these outfit ideas are just blue and white, but I would add a red bag, red jewelry, or at least red nail polish to bring in all of the colors of Old Glory!

As you probably know by now, I like to take a subtle approach to holiday fashion. You won’t see me draped in the American flag, but I do like to be festive so I rounded up a bunch of looks that would be appropriate for your 4th of July events.

Most of these outfits can probably be recreated from pieces you already have in your closet, but of course I’ll include shopping links in case you see something you can’t live without.

  1. I’m trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on the denim skirt…feels like high school, but you’ve got such great outfits every time you wear it!

  2. Adorable outfits for the 4th! Regarding the red linen t-shirt in the first pic, it mentioned in the reviews comments that the shirt is so sheer you have to wear a camisole underneath. Here is a fashion question – when you wear a cami under a shirt – do you wear a bra underneath the cami too? I have never seen a cami that provided the support of a bra and if you wear both you will end up seeing the bra straps underneath the thinner straps of the cami. Any guidance on this one?

    1. I don’t think the top is that sheer but I have last year’s version so maybe it is different? I have a few of their linen tees and I never feel the need to wear a cami. With the darker ones, I do have to wear a dark bra, but that’s the only issue. And I always, always, ALWAYS wear a bra. There is no cami in the world that would allow me to go braless with these girls. HA! 🙂

  3. All these outfits are great! Tomorrow we are celebrating Canada’s 150th – so just take out the blue and I am on par with the red and white 🙂 Have a great vacation!

  4. All of these outfits are great options Jo-Lynne! I can’t pick a favorite. I hope you have a fabulous birthday, even though y’all celebrated last weekend, enjoy having the family over, then safe travels to Maine. I remember your beautiful pictures from last years trip, so I can’t wait to see them this year. Be blessed!

  5. Happy Birthday, JoLynn! I love your 4th outfits!! You are darling and always look so great! Happy 4th and safe travels!

  6. Love all your outfit combo’s! As for me, I’m all about the red, white & blue theme that my daughters try to tame down a bit! I did get the red nails, with my ring fingers done in blue with fireworks painted on them though! I like your ideas of just going with just a pop of color, so I think I’ll give that a try this year! So jealous of your Maine trip, my favorite State ever. Our daughter just got back from her BFF trip to Maine for a 4 days. She went to a place called Red’s Eats in Wiscasset – home of the World’s Best Lobster Shack. And she said it was! Enjoy that hectic weekend and your tirp to Maine.. Looking forward to some Down East Maine Pics!!

  7. I am from the Deep South. We have been having rain not summer. Not complaining at least it’s not fry an egg on the sidewalk weather. Ha! Classy fourth outfits today. Enjoy your trip and family time. I have always loved how family comes together to celebrate America’s Birthday!????????

  8. Happy Birthday JoLynne (tomorrow) and Happy 4th of July! You look awesome in red, and I also like the chambray top with the white skinny jeans. We Canadians love your sense of style too as i noticed another fellow Canadian that posted a comment. Safe travels and enjoy trip to Maine!

  9. Happy Birthday Jo-Lynne! Thank you for all the 4th of July options. They all look great. My fav is the maxi dress. I bet you will
    taking it to Maine with you. Haha. Happy Independence Day and safe travels.

  10. Hi Jo-Lynne,
    I enjoy reading your blog. i have a question. The other day you spoke about the Micro-Sculpting Oil of Olay moisturizer. You have mentioned you sell Rodan and Field. Was wondering how this moisturizer compares to the Rodan and Field one(the blue one)? Thank you and Happy 4th! Beth
