We’ve also sprinkled in a few of our favorite 4th of July decoration ideas and gift ideas to help you party like it’s 1776!
Lady in Red
Make life easy and go with a monochrome red look this Independence Day. This festive red striped romper is as trendy as it is comfortable — perfect for a long day or evening of celebrating. Style with red hoop earrings and a red jute tote bag for a bold July 4th look that is sure to turn heads.
Prepared to Party
Throwing a successful July 4th celebration is all about being prepared. Don’t get caught off guard by summer rainstorms; with this cute stars and stripes pullover rain jacket, you’ll be set to celebrate no matter the weather. Other must-have essentials for an outdoor summer gathering: 4th of July Teleties hair ties, a patriotic tumbler for keeping your drink cold, and sun protection essentials like sunscreen and a hat. Come rain or shine, you’ll be ready!
Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic look; we’re talking a red, white and blue color palette with all the stars and stripes. Start with a festive 4th of July t-shirt, like this USA tie-dye tee or this 'Sweet Land Of Liberty' sunflower tank top. Then layer on your favorite patriotic accessories like this fireworks printed silicone smart watch band and a pair of red, white, or blue sunnies. Don’t forget this “We the people” insulated jug to keep your beverage icy cold and all-American.
On the other hand, you could keep the base of your outfit chic and simple, and allow your accessories to do the talking. This cute red, white, and blue tassel kimono has an oh-so flattering fit with a festive theme. Or accessorize with a red, white and blue scarf and a pair of 4th of July earrings, and you’re set to celebrate in style. Finish the look with classic white wedges, oversized sunglasses, and firecracker red nails.
We’ll always have a place in our heart for stripes, but if you only want to rock one print this July 4th, you can’t go wrong with stars on stars! These navy french terry shorts and star power cutoff shorts are so cute and comfortable. Pair them with a red or white tee and sandals for a laid-back look. Attending a July 4th gathering? You’ll be safe and stylish in this stars face mask. A pair of cute star earrings serve as the perfect finishing touch.
Hostess with the Mostess
Hosting this year’s July 4th celebration? It’s a good idea to stock up on a few essentials to set the mood and make sure your guests are comfortable. A few cute 4th of July decorations can go a long way towards making your event feel festive and celebratory. Disposable kitchen accessories like plastic cups and paper napkins make cleanup easy — bonus points if they fit into the red, white, and blue theme.
Bright reds and blues may be the norm for most 4th of July outfits for women, but who says you can’t shake things up? For an outfit that is both chic and celebratory, consider playing around with muted tones and softer colors found in the same family; for instance, this sleeveless navy stripe dress. Style it with a soft pink headband and white wedges or sneakers for a look that is understated and feminine, yet undeniably American.
Patriotic July 4th Gifts
If you are attending an Independence Day gathering, don’t show up empty-handed! 4th of July gifts can go a long way towards making the host feel appreciated. We recommend a festive gift that the recipient can use right away, like cute 4th of July jewelry or accessories. A stars and stripes tumbler is another excellent gift idea that will leave a good impression.
We hope these cute 4th of July outfits, decorations, and gifts have sparked a few ideas for you. Happy birthday America, and happy 4th of July from our Prep Obsessed family to yours!
