Each year, Independence Day brings its own celebratory style to the forefront. While 4th of July fashion is always on trend in the U.S., it reaches its peak of popularity right about now. And you know how it is when there’s seasonality involved — you have to shop fast to get the best pieces.
Whether you’re going to a barbecue or hitting up the nearest parade, we’ve found some adorable ideas for everyone. The best part is, all these picks are under $40!
4th of July Fashion Picks: for the Picnic
A patriotic T with a Rolling Stones vibe is an instant hit for your 4th of July picnic. Turn this t and matching headband into a complete outfit with white or denim shorts.
This is technically a junior’s top, but it comes in sizes XS all the way up to 2X. The flattering round hem is pleasing to the eye and flattering on all body types.
These distressed denim shorts are perfect for the 4th and for the rest of the summer. Wear these with almost anything — with a red, white or blue top being a great choice of course.
These shorts have five pockets and a 4-inch inseam, and are available in women’s sizes 0 to 12.
For the Parade
Why not drape the American flag over a white shirt and jeans? The detail of this kimono cardigan is impressive: white stars with a blue background on one side, and red stripes over a white background on the other side. This piece has a comfortable, relaxed fit and provides coverage past the waist, to your hip.
A jersey swing dress is a nice option if you’re on the move. The light fabric moves with you, and the gentle flare is flattering and comfortable, whether you’re walking or sitting down. If you’re spending time outdoors this 4th, you’ll appreciate the extra chest coverage this dress provides, too.
For this Holiday and the Next One
A true budget fashionista feels vaguely uncomfortable buying something she can only wear once a year. It’s that cost per wear thing, after all. This stunning maxi dress will fit into any 4th of July party — and any other casual party you drop in on this summer.
The snug fit of this dress will show off your curves, and the side-front slit gives you the option to show off your legs. You can pick up this piece in sizes XS up to 3X.
