Outfits for the Fourth of July That Don’t Include an Old Navy Flag Tee

The Fourth of July will be here before we know it, which means you’re probably planning a pretty awesome outdoor get-together. After all, last year, we were all cooped up (thanks, Covid).

Now, let’s talk outfits! Don’t get us wrong, Old Navy tees are nostalgic, but we can do better than that! Here are some trendier Fourth of July ensemble ideas to try.

The Pursuit of Patchwork 

This summer, you need a denim miniskirt. We love the idea of this The Ragged Priest Patchwork Resolute Skirt ($80, shop here) paired with a tucked-in ribbed red-and-white ringer tee and white espadrille platform sandals. If you need to add some sparkle, go all gold with accessories. This skirt can be worn well into the fall, depending on where you live.

American Icon

Red plaid just feels like the Fourth of July, and we love that the plaid in this Maeve Bon Voyage Button-Down ($78, shop here). To style, tie the top so it sits just above your waistline and pair it with some distressed light-wash Bermudas and white Keds. For accessories, opt for some post earrings and vintage cat-eye sunnies. Summer fashion is all about losing the layers and making simple pieces the center of attention.

Sweet Land of Liberty

We love fashion pieces that do the entire Americana look for you, such as this Smocked Maxi Dress ($135, shop here).  Having a single piece that incorporates a 4th of July scheme means that you don’t have to go overboard on accessories. Simply pair this dress with neutral sandals and you’re done!


You probably already have this first outfit in your closet. Start with your best (and by “best,” we mean comfiest) mom jeans or denim shorts and pair them with a white top of your choosing. Maybe you’re feeling a little eyelet or Swiss dot moment? But if a classic white tee or crop top is more your thing, go for it.

Now, the fun part: Pair this basic look with an all-Americana color silk scarf like this Madewell Bandana ($12.50, shop here). You can wear it as a bandana, roll it into a headband, or tie it around your neck. Add some woven pointed-toe flats and statement earrings, and you’ll be ready to celebrate!
