These 4th of July outfits are perfect for backyard barbecues, attending a fireworks show, or however else you celebrate the holiday. They are all about patriotic colors and looking fantastic.
I absolutely love holidays because they are a time when families and friends come together to celebrate something. There are typically traditions, decorations, and foods that go along with each holiday.
Going all out for a holiday is fun because you are really immersed in the holiday. Some of my favorite memories are from holiday traditions. Holidays are such a great way to create new memories that you will look back on.
So many fun things go along with the 4th of July. There are 4th of July movies that make you feel super patriotic, backyard barbecues, and of course, the fireworks all of which you can find as St George 4th of July Activities.
Plus, there are tons of fun 4th of July foods ideas. We love these 4th of July appetizers because they are easy to bring to a party. This 4th of July fruit pizza recipe is one of our favorites because you can make it together as a family!
Another way to celebrate and get into the holiday spirit for the 4th of July is by dressing up for the holiday. There are so many different outfit ideas you can try out, and it's a great way to show your creativity.
The central part of 4th of July outfits is dressing up like the American flag (which you can even do using makeup thanks to our 4th of July makeup ideas). Dressing in red, white, and blue is a way to show your patriotism and look like the American flag.
Pair those shirts with jean shorts, and they are good to go! They can wear their favorite tennis shoes, flip flops, or even go barefoot if running around in the backyard. The 4th of July is super casual, which I love.
Why you should dress up for the 4th of July
- Dressing up for holidays is a great way to really get into the mood of the holiday.
- It makes for fun photos with friends.
- If you and the family match, you can take a picture together and use it for your Christmas card (two birds, one stone!)
- It gives you an opportunity to buy new clothes.
Now that you know why you should dress up for the 4th of July, we can get into the how. It can get overwhelming, especially if you are trying to dress the whole family. Don't worry; we've got you covered.
First, let's start with the kids. I find that shopping for the kiddos is usually the easiest because there are many options to choose from, especially when it comes to babies.
When looking for an outfit, it is important to note the attire of the event. The 4th of July is a pretty casual holiday, so you won't have to worry too much about dressing up or dressing down. It just depends on what your plans are for the day.
Babies are the easiest to shop for because they won't have an opinion. You can buy whatever, and they won't care. I always recommend a hat of some sort for babies so they don't get too much sun.
The 4th of July is usually pretty hot, so I recommend lightweight and easy outfits. For example, this snap-up romper is perfect for your little girl. This one is cute too, because it comes with a cute little bow!
She will also need some protection from the sun, so I recommend a cute hat with SPF protection. There are many options, so you'll find something that will work. You can also try baby sunglasses if she lets you.
For your little dude, you have to get this All-American Dude outfit. The pants are so cute and are perfect for the 4th of July. These patriotic bibs are also great because they are stylish and great for drool.
Finding outfits for the older kiddos can get tricky because they have their own opinion. You can try and pick an outfit out for them, but they may not like it. Having them help you pick their outfit out may be a good idea.
If they will let you, getting matching outfits with your younger kiddos is such a fun idea. Matching outfits look great when you are taking family pictures. And it is just so cute to see your kids match!
This 4th of July flag dress is absolutely adorable and will make a little girl feel like a princess. There's also this seersucker dress with cute little bows on the straps that would be so cute for the patriotic holiday.
For a more casual look, this 4th of July short set is comfy and cute. I love to spend this patriotic holiday in the sun, so a cute swimsuit is always a good option. Bonus points if the swimsuit is red, white, or blue.
I am obsessed with these American flag swim trunks because they come in plenty of sizes, so all your boys can match! There are also these star swim trunks if your son wants more of a low-key patriotic swimsuit.
A graphic tee is a great way for your son to show his style and still be comfortable. There are plenty of patriotic graphic tees to show their interests. For example, there's a t-shirt with a video game controller, Spider-Man, and Star Wars!
Teens usually have their own style at this age, so they will probably go with what they feel comfortable in. The great thing about an Independence Day outfit is that there is such a variety. As long as it is a festive outfit, you're set.
White sneakers are popular, and there are plenty of different styles. Vans, Converse, Keds, Nikes, New Balances, and many other brands will have some white sneakers. White sneakers are versatile, too, because they can be dressed up or down.
Denim shorts are a summer staple. They are the perfect choice when it comes to a comfortable outfit. Throw on some jean shorts and a white tee shirt, and you are good to go!
You can throw them over a swimsuit for a fourth of July pool party with a tank top or white crop top for a cute outfit. Keeping cool is critical in warm weather so tank tops and shorts are the way to go.
These mid-waisted jean shorts come in many colors, so your teenage girl can pick her favorite that will match her style. These overalls would pair well with a tank top or white crop top for a simple outfit.
For a fancier outfit, a teenage girl could wear a pretty sundress. There are plenty of white dresses and blue dresses out there to choose from. The thing about sundresses is that they can be dressed up or down.
Your teenage boy can wear khaki shorts, a button-up long sleeve (only if it gets cool enough), or a short sleeve polo. There are even some fun red and white striped shorts that would show off your son's patriotic side.
If you aren't wanting to wear a dress, wear shorts! These jean shorts are a good choice if you want looser shorts. They have that denim style without being too tight.
I hope you have some ideas of what to wear for this upcoming 4th of July! You really can't go wrong when it comes to dressing up for the holidays. As long as you are having fun with it, you are doing great.
If you do dress up, make sure you take pictures. You will look back on those for years to come. Happy 4th of July!
