Chambray Romper: There’s nothing more American than denim in every type of garment.  This season go for chambray, a lighter, softer material with a denim look.  The romper is the ultimate effortless outfit choice.  Dress it down with white Converse or pair your romper with red sandals or heels for upscale cookouts.

Bandanas: Rosie the Riveter with a twist.  Replace your necklaces with a tied bandana to make any outfit look more patriotic.  Make a bandana the statement piece of your outfit, pairing it with a simple white top and denim cutoffs.

Red Heels: Avoid stilettos on this fairly casual holiday.  Opt for a chunky heel in a bold red tone to pair with cutoffs, raw hem or white jeans, and dresses.  A versatile choice, your shoes can be the standout piece with a simple outfit or pair them with another small red accessory, such as a clutch, that pull the outfit together from head to toe.  Whatever you choose, red heels are sure to make your look patriotic.

Wide Leg Pants: This style is perfect for a classier look this weekend.  With a loose yet flattering fit, wide leg is the way to go for a summer pant.  Try a bold color or pattern to brighten your look like the royal blue style below, or a pinstripe to complete your patriotic look.  To avoid losing any height in these pants, pair them with a heel and fitted top.

Graphic Tee: The graphic t-shirt is a classic look for the Fourth of July.  This year, add style to the look by pairing a graphic tee with a jean skirt or tucked into white jeans with simple accessories.  Instead of an overdone flag print top, choose a more subtle look–a white shirt with bold red or blue lettering, a striped top, etc. Complete the look with Converse, strappy sandals or espadrille flats.
