We’ll toast to the stars and stripes forever, but that doesn’t mean we’ll limit our wardrobe to only those patterns this Fourth of July. That’s right: Although we love a good holiday cliché, we've got more than flag-themed outfits planned for those BBQs, beach outings, and fireworks displays. (Although, if you do have your sights set on going full-on 'Merica, we have an idea about how to do that stylishly, too.)
Ahead, we crafted five fresh party looks perfect for every type of Fourth, whether you're venturing to some fancy rooftop with a date or to a sunny, poolside destination where you're planning on spending quality time with some chips and guac. Of course, we know that making a fashion statement isn't the point of July 4, but we also know that looking your best is just as important tomorrow as it is any other day. Ahead, a handful of outfits that will help you make it through the weekend in style — so you can stop worrying and start celebrating.
