Let's be real. We all have at least one over-the-top patriotic piece of clothing that only sees the light of day for the 4th of July. These items cannot be worn again later in the year and may even be out of style come next summer. Sometimes you want to show your all-American girl spirit without going full cheese factor. So we've rounded up some of our favorite outfits that can be worn beyond Independence Day.
Before you hop into the pool, arrive to the backyard BBQ dressed like a star. You don't have to be full-on American flag to show your patriotism. Enjoy the summer heat in relaxed star print cotton shorts with a drawstring waist ($33), delicate white tank with shoulder ties ($45), bold red sunglasses ($15 in-store), and classic Kendra Scott Reid Pendant Necklace in red ($75).
Stand out in a crowd of fireworks observers in this trendy black star print jumpsuit ($56). This option gives you mobility to chase little ones around the field and sit cross-legged on your picnic blanket. Go ahead and lay your head back in your lover's lap because there are no worries of exposing yourself to the crowd. Accessorize with strappy sandals, Quay Frivolous Sunglasses in white ($55) and edgy star chain earrings with spike detail ($46).
Channel girl-next-door vibes with simple red, white and blue details. Mix and match solids that can be used for limitless outfits all year round. Start with vintage Levi's cutoff denim shorts ($86), white low v-cut tie front tank top ($75), and blue classic Kendra Scott jewelry. This is the perfect look for a relaxing fireworks-lit night with your significant other.
The 4th isn't just for denim and tank tops. Let your girly-girl style shine in a twirl-worthy red, white and blue tie-dye off the shoulder dress ($63). This sweet style features tassel ties, too! The tie-dye design keeps it low-key, while still having a dressy look. Add cute wedges and statement sunglasses for a day in the sun.
