Raise your hand if you’re guilty of running around on the 4th of July in denim cut-offs, a white or red tank and chucks. Sure it’s cute. But I’m 31, it’s time to elevate and look a little more put together, don’t you think? This button front striped dress though is exactly what I think of when I want an elevated 4th of July outfit. It’s not all in your face American flag with stars and stripes. It’s nice enough to look stylish and also feel good in. No need to be too kitschy even on the 4th of July.

Elevated 4th Of July Outfit Ideas

The best way to effortlessly elevate your 4th of July inspired outfit is to choose either red or blue, and go with one of your favorite silhouettes or trends.  For me, that’s button-up dresses. For you, it might be a great tee or button down. Or maybe you love a romper!

Red, White Or Blue Dresses

Choose a white dress and denim jacket for the easiest look. Add a red bandana if you like so you have all three colors. Or, just choose a dress in the color blue! I love this $30 t-shirt dress from Everlane, such a great piece and so comfortable. You could also go with a red floral or red and white stripe. There’s no rules here other than go for red, white or blue!

Simple In Shorts

I love a good pair of denim shorts, so these are usually my go to when I’m pretty casual. Adding a blue and white striped tee, or a white linen blazer is great. I also love a simple red tank paired with a denim jacket. Easily accomplish your red, white and blue this way!

Feminine Skirts

If you’re more a skirt person, you could opt for a denim skirt and same rules apply. Add a white or red top, or even a navy one. Add in a colorful accessory to complete the look. Or, choose a colorful skirt like this red midi floral. Covers all your colors in one pretty print!
