June 25, 2024 ยท by Andrea Long

The 4th of July is a time for fireworks, barbecues, and celebrating with friends and family. But what to wear? If you're looking for outfit ideas that are both festive and modest, you've come to the right place!

Dresses for Summer Fun:

  • A-line Dress with a Pop of Color: A classic A-line dress is a flattering and comfortable choice for a summer celebration. Look for one in red, white, or blue, or opt for a festive print with stars and stripes. You can't go wrong with a classic blue and white stripe like the Writing My Own Story dress
  • Embroidery with a Touch of Romance: Go for a whimsical look with a blue and white embroidered midi dress.The embroidered detailing adds a touch of sweetness, while the white color keeps things cool and breezy. The Summer in Spain dress is a lovely choice for patriotic celebrations. 
  • Darling Denim: Denim is a timeless American classic, perfect for a casual 4th of July celebration. Opt for a simple, modest denim dress in a light wash. Add a pop of color with a bright bag or a classic scarf. You'll adore the Savor the Simple dress.
  • Festive Florals: There's nothing as feminine as a floral print dress, and a floral dress in patriotic colors is the bee's knees! Choose a loose-fitting style like the Your Favorite Dress for casual, out-of-doors events, proving that you can be cool and comfy, while looking modest and chic!
  • Stylish Solids: Don't have a dress with stars or stripes? Choose a simple solid in red, white, or blue and accessorize with pops of patriotic colors. We love a good basic, and the On a Whim dress is the perfect little navy dress to have in your wardrobe for any celebration!

Accessorize for the Occasion:

No matter what outfit you choose, don't forget the accessories! Here are a few ideas to add a festive touch:

  • Hair Accessories: Show your patriotism with red, white, and blue headbands, pins, or claw clips. Think statement pieces with lots of sparkle and shine!
  • Scarves: A scarf is a great way to add a pop of color or pattern to your outfit. Tie a red bandana around your neck or wear a white scarf with a cute star print in your hair.
  • Sunglasses: Protect your eyes from the sun in style with a pair of festive sunglasses. Look for frames in red, white, and blue or with star and stripe detailing.
