Hey guys. Guess what? America’s birthday is this weekend. If you’re like me, you’ve probably been so busy dreaming about how many hot dogs and popsicles you’ll be eating that you’ve forgotten that you’ll need to put on something in the shades of red, white and good ol’ blue. No one wants to be the butt of all the sarcastic unpatriotic jokes at the BBQ, so allow me to elaborate on some 4th of July outfit inspiration for you.

I know throwing on a t-shirt with the American flag plastered across the front is not everyone’s jam, so I’ve come up with three different looks to show your American pride with items you probably already have in your closet. I’ve obviously added in an American flag item into each of these looks, but they’re perfectly patriotic without that addition, too.

My first look (pictured above) is a little bit on the dressier side, in case any of you are lucky enough to be going to a yacht party for the Fourth. (If you need a plus one, hit a sister up.) This look is textbook colorblocking. I opted to throw up my hair in a high bun for added glamour and top it off with an American flag headband for an extra bit of ‘Merica. The headband is actually the kimono shown in the third outfit, so if you have a festive scarf, consider wearing it on your head instead of around your neck to mix it up!
