Fourth of July is just over a week away, and we’re here to help you with some stylish outfit ideas! While it’s the perfect day to express your patriotic side, you might not be inclined to buy new wardrobe pieces that are full-blown stars and stripes. That’s where we come in! A red, white, and blue color palette will make a spirited statement, but our unique prints will allow you to keep wearing these pieces for the rest of the season.

Whether you’re going to celebrate at a beach bonfire, a family barbecue, or a more elegant setting like cocktails with a view, we picked out 9 stylish outfit ideas for Fourth of July, so that you can concentrate solely on having holiday fun!

Just Add Water - Fun Looks for the Pool Party, Beach, or Lake

If your Fourth of July plans include swimsuits, sun block, and sun glasses, we have a fabulous range of colorful cover ups - from short to long to printed to embroidered - all in super light 100% cotton. Pair with a contrasting tote bag to carry all your day-time essentials. 

Look #1 - Ithaca Coral Cotton Beach Dress and Bateau Stripe Navy Canvas Carryall Tote Bag. Easy summer style that's anything but basic!

Look #2 - Ios Navy Kimono Cover Up and Whale Tail Pink Jute Carryall Tote Bag. The great thing about our Kimono Cover Up is that it not only looks amazing over a bathing suit but also over your favorite shirt and shorts for a little bohemian style. While our Whale Tail jute carryall isn't exactly red, its white and coral print will still add a patriotic flair to your blue kimono - plus it's lightweight, made of natural fiber, and is perfect for the beach.

Look #3 - Dia Beach Kaftan with Champagne Embroidery, Rayna Navy Coated Linen Dopp Kit, Luna Pink Blu Bottle. Our crisp white Dia Beach Kaftan is both sophisticated and comfortable - an ideal summer combination! We paired it with a blue laminated dopp kit, which is not just for traveling. You can also take it to the beach or the pool to keep your small belongings safe from the water. For another pop of color, bring along a blu bottle for iced tea or lemonade. Stay hydrated and feel great knowing that we donate 20 cents of your blu bottle purchase to Ocean Conservancy.

When you want to feel comfortable but look put together at your Fourth of July picnics and bbqs, our dresses and tunics are just what you're looking for. With figure-flattering silhouettes, you'll be able to enjoy the whole day with ease.

Look #4 - Mavros Navy Denim Dress, Sea Urchin Blue Canvas Beach Bucket Bag. Denim is a quick way to add blue to your patriotic color palette, and our Mavros swing dress is a summery beauty that you can't miss! To keep it fun and casual, add our Sea Urchin bucket bag in blue and white.

Look #5 - Paros Red Rayon V-Neck Tunic, Panthea Pink Canvas Carryall Tote Bag. An eye-catching red tunic, crisp white pants, and a colorful tote bag with red, white, blue, and marigold will keep your Fourth of July look bright and cheerful. Our soft and lightweight v-neck tunic also looks great tucked into shorts or a skirt. 

Look #6 - Iris Navy Cotton Pintuck Tunic, Lobster Red and Anchor Navy Blu Bags. Our bestselling cotton pintuck tunic is the most comfortable and beautiful top you'll own this season and looks amazing with denim or white bottoms. If you're responsible for bringing some side dishes to your picnic or bbq, our reusable blu bag shopping bags are the best. They hold up to 50 lbs, are machine washable, easy to store in your purse, and we also donate 20 cents from each blu bag you purchase to Ocean Conservancy.

Light the Fireworks - Elegant Looks for an Evening Out

For your elegant Fourth of July evening out, keep your outfit simple but stunning with one show-stopping accessory. 

Look #7 - Kasbah Red Coral Kimono Wrap/Scarf. This is one of our most popular kimono wraps and has also been featured on The View. The gorgeous coral, white, and navy blue print give you a subtly patriotic palette on a beautifully flowing wrap that will transform any crisp white basics underneath.

Look #8 - Ios White/Navy Sleeveless Tunic. This intricate embroidery is inspired by the chic fashions of Greece. You'll look amazing with white or navy pants, plus a nice glass of red ;). 

Look #9 - Callie Coral Super Soft Oversized Scarf. The prints on our scarves are all hand-painted or hand-stamped by our VP of Design, so you know you'll be wearing something unique. Our oversized scarf is also extremely versatile. Whether you wear it as a wrap over a dress or tie it into a bolero over a blouse and pants, your vibrant red and white scarf will light up your outfit. We have one in blue, too!
