Fun & Flattering 4th of July Outfits for Women

It’s almost time to show your love for the red, white and blue! From a casual BBQ to a formal night out, your plans can help you decide what to wear. To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of 4th of July outfits for women that have star-spangled style, no matter how you’re celebrating.

Subtle Ways to Style Red, White, and Blue

The key to styling 4th of July outfits is mixing and matching red, white, and blue pieces in a subtle way. For instance, choose one statement piece, like a top or bottom – even a scarf can act as your statement piece. If you choose a primary color like red, then pair it with muted prints or white solids.  


Choosing two colors, like a blue and white, is a simple way to stay on brand this summer without the trinity of 4th of July hues. Sometimes knowing when to tone down the colors is the trick.

You can choose two colors and still embellish your look with prints.

Cool and Flowy Fabrics to Keep You Comfortable

Be sure to choose items made of fabrics that are both breathable and lightweight for the hot summer days. Linen, chiffon, and cotton all make great options as they will keep you looking and feeling your best while still keeping things festive. 

Linen is a classic fabric for summer that is both fashionable and it looks great when paired with some red or blue accessories. Chiffon is usually lighter weight and you can find some stylish dresses in this material for more upscale summertime affairs. Cotton is also an amazing option, as it comes in different textures and colors, making it the perfect piece to complete most 4th of July outfits for women.

Simple & Stylish 4th of July Outfits

Now that we've covered the basics of styling for 4th of July outfits, let’s get into some specifics. Here are our recommendations for tops, bottoms, accessories, and more to celebrate Independence Day 2023 in style.

Stripe Button Front Shirt & White Pants

If you’ll be on vacation this Independence Day, consider the versatility of a No Iron button front stripe shirt. The navy stripes show your love for the U.S.A. and the wrinkle-free fabrication makes it perfect for everything from brunch, to sightseeing, to fireworks on the pier. Complete this clean, stylish look with white pull-on ankle pants, and red, white, and blue accessories.

Red Top, White Bottoms & Accent Accessories 

Start this look with a red top, and then add your favorite white shorts, skort, or crops–depending on your destination. Remember: you can wear prints, but opt for something that works for the occasion, like bandana print. Shorts are the perfect option for a backyard BBQ. Finish off your look with at least one red, white or blue accent accessory.

White Top & Denim 

What’s more American than denim? A classic white top and denim combo is perfect for easygoing 4th of July celebrations. If you’re likely to be indoors for the 4th, a denim jacket with some Independence Day flair helps you stay warm – and it completes your look. A column of white could be just right for more upscale events, like a celebration brunch at your favorite waterside restaurant.

Navy Skort & White Top 

Skorts are just right for a day packed with parties, BBQs, and fireworks. A print blue and white skort paired with an easy-to-wear white tee are great for dressing up or dressing down. Top it off with silver tone accessories, and if you’re feeling daring, print blue and white sandals to match. This is one of those 4th of July outfits that can go all day.

Skorts are often a go-to for summer wear, since they feature shorts underneath.

White Maxi Dress & Red Accessories

No list of 4th of July outfits for women would be complete without a lightweight maxi dress. We love crepe or gauze relaxed maxi dresses in white for more elevated evening celebrations. The lightweight cotton construction and relaxed fit make it so wearable, especially on warm summer nights. Make this look really pop with at least one red accessory.

White Fashion Top & Red Crops

For something more playful yet polished, try out white fashion top and red crops combo. This look is perfect for cocktails with the neighbors at dusk. Plus, the wide leg pants make this look fashion-forward since it’s one of this year’s biggest trends. For an extra hit of patriotic style, accent this outfit with red, white and blue bracelets and necklaces.

White Column of Color & Accent Scarf

Independence Day is an opportunity to wear all white before Labor Day. That’s why 4th of July outfits for women often include a column of white ensemble. Column dressing can help flatter your figure, even if the look is solid white. Adding a pop of color can really offset a white column look, so try a red, white, and blue print scarf.
