Fourth of July Fashion: How to Wear Red, White & Blue

Upgrade your look this Independence Day with standout red, white and blue pieces.


This holiday is a nautical lover’s dream, but there’s no need to pull out the anchors and captain’s hat, or get overly literal with stars and stripes. Instead, show your patriotic colors by choosing one or two seasonally hued items that add a little spark to your style.

Hot Reds

Whether you’re going to a bbq or a boat party, this flirty but comfortable cotton dress is perfectly festive for fireworks gazing.

With a bright red core and surrounded by its own sparklers, this ring will catch as many eyes as your average bottle rocket.

Cool Whites

For fancier Fourth festivities, add these platform heels to any look. We especially love the contrast of the white, crisscross straps lined and stitched in red.

To the beach, to a party, to a holiday picnic—wear this long, crinkly skirt anywhere and everywhere this summer.

Brilliant Blues

A geometric Aztec scarf is a unique accessory to couple with a simple yet summery outfit in white. Lightweight linen makes an ideal extra layer for cooler nights.

Sure, neutral nails are still in vogue, but isn’t a vivid cobalt so much more fun? This 3-Free polish is a great way to add a hint of blue to any outfit.

All Together Now

There’s no crime in wearing red, white and blue all at once as long as it’s as simple and stylish as this striped tank dress.

A white patent watch accented with a cerulean chain combines the colors of the day without going overboard. This summery statement piece feels classic but dramatic at the same time.

Since it’s a more literal interpretation of flag colors, team this graphic, oversized sailcloth bag with a simple outfit like a solid-hued dress in red, white or even another primary shade like yellow. Six inner compartments help you keep things organized.
