July 4th Outfit Inspiration

From sunshine and salty ocean air to sundresses and straw hats– you guys know our favorite season here at jessannkirby.com is Summer. July 4th is easily one of our all-time favorite holidays so we had to round up some of our best July 4th outfit inspiration. Whether you opt for a beach day, barbecue or lounging lakeside, we’ve got you covered with some red, white and blue so you can stay stylish watching fireworks with friends.

Striped Bikini + White Cutoffs

I don’t know about you, but I’ll be spending my 4th of July in the water! This red, white and blue suit is the perfect July 4th outfit with white cutoffs and a sun hat to keep those UV rays off my face. Just add SPF and sunnies.

Straw Hat + Striped Linen Button Down

Make an outfit out of your bathing suit by throwing on a breezy linen button down and sun hat. This blue and white striped top from Rails is a perfect weight and looks chic tied up in the front, around your waist or worn open as a coverup. Throw on cutoffs or a maxi dress underneath to watch the fireworks.

Striped Top + Denim Shorts

Like anyone, we love a good dose of red, white and blue on the 4th. Try this sporty tank from Paige tucked into denim shorts and paired with slides and a sun hat. Complete the look with a furry friend in a red bandana (Nora wears the Madewell bandana in red).

Stripe Dress + Denim Jacket

For a barbecue or drinks, try a mid-length navy & white striped dress. It’s chic and comfortable to throw on after the beach or makes an easy outfit for any and all festivities. Throw a denim jacket around your waist in case it gets chilly and finish off your outfit with a sun hat, crossbody, and strappy sandals.

    Love these outfits! I’m American, my husband is British, and we live in Bermuda. We got married on the 4th of July and now we ALWAYS have an excuse to wear red white and blue and party it up that day. Bonus: we get fireworks for our anniversary every year!
