What to Wear for the 4th of July

June 25, 2021


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Old Navy and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, purchased and worn by yours truly.

Cue the red, white, and blue! Independence Day is right around the corner, friends. Dare I say it’s one of my favorite holidays of the year? The time with friends and family, fireworks, and of course the food, brings me so much joy. Whether you’re traveling or celebrating in your own back yard, we’re here to help you dress the part – with a little help from Old Navy.

It will come as no surprise to you that Old Navy is my jam. I’ve been wearing it for years, loving it for years, and would like to think you’ve found a few goodies along the way too! Aside from their amazing deals across all departments, they also offer fast FREE shipping on orders of $50 or more. Pair that with cute looks for the entire family and I’m sold! Ready or not, the big day is almost here, so today we’re sharing 3 looks perfect for the 4th of July – all from Old Navy.

Americana Cut-Off Jean Shorts // Americana Graphic Tee 

U-S-A! U-S-A! Nothing gets my patriotism pumping quite like a little Americana gear. Well, that, and Toby Keith. But we’re here to talk about the red, white, and blue, friends. I’m loving these Cut-Off Jean Shorts made for repping ‘Merica while hanging out at the lake or a backyard BBQ. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve been a fan of Old Navy Graphic tees since the 90’s. Some things never change. But if not, there’s no time like the present to get on board. May I suggest starting your love affair here? 😉

Striped Linen-Blend Top // Boyfriend Jeans [TTS]

If you live in a region where the phrase “cool Summer nights” is commonly known [shoutout Midwest!], then you might need a little more coverage this holiday… errr, all summer long. The good news: my latest obsession with these jeans isn’t slowing down anytime soon. I’ve been wearing them back to back since I got them and can’t get enough! Bonus points for being mosquito bite proof – with the exception of your right kneecap, that is. 😉 Pair them with a lightweight Linen-Blend Top and you’re all set for the festivities!

Sleeveless Swing Dress [TTS] // Denim Jacket [Size up if in between, wearing Small]

If you prefer not to wear pants [hi, me] – slip into something more comfortable like a Swing Dress. I love that this one is lightweight for warm days, can be paired with my go-to denim jacket if you’re in need of an extra layer, and is practical enough to wear all season long! Pro Tip: if you’re celebrating 4th festivities anywhere near the water, a dress can also double as a swim coverup. Dress smarter, not harder. Cheers to a fun and safe holiday, friends!
