Is there a dress code for July 4th?
While there’s no specific dress code for July 4th, if you want to be patriotic, you could always choose an outfit made up of red, white and blue.
July 4th outfits
Below, I’ve put together a July 4th capsule, inspired by the colors, stars and stripes of the Star-Spangled Banner.

No matter what you are doing on July 4th, you’ll find that you can dress these tops up or down. I’ve chosen a casual t-shirt, a t-shirt with a twist and shirts featuring stars and stripes.
coats and jackets
I think the blue of the moto jacket (below) would be perfect for July 4th. For casual days, you could also think about a denim jacket, or dress up your looks with a blazer. If you just want a lightweight cover-up, a striped cardigan would be perfect.
jeans and pants

For your bottoms, a pair of shorts or pants will be perfect if you are attending a barbecue or more casual party. You could opt for pair of leggings to wear under shorter dresses like the t-shirt dress in the next section.
dresses and skirts
Now, onto some dresses and skirts. A red, or striped, dress will be perfect for July 4th. You could wear with sneakers or flats, or dress up if you’re celebrating with a more formal event.
Any July 4th outfit needs a stylish pair of shoes. Unless you’re celebrating on the beach maybe. Choose espadrilles or sneakers for your casual looks, or sandals or shoe boots to dress your outfit up.
Now, for the finishing touches. Choose a bold bag to go with your July 4th looks. I’ve opted for star-themed jewelry.

For example, you could wear the denim jacket over the striped dresses, the blazer and shoe boots with the print pants or opts for an all-red look with the red dress and sandals.
