5 Party Looks For Every Type Of Fourth

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.

Lakeside Fireworks
You've got a beer in hand and grass under your feet — as it should be. Keep casual in a ruffled tank and a classic short, but don't forget a light jacket to take in the night's colorful display. You never know when those sneaky summer chills will creep up.

Bar Crawls
Sure, we didn't win the World Cup, but you're really proud of U.S.A.'s valiant effort. And, you know what? You're going to show your adoration on your person this weekend — thanks to this thematic Suno skirt and a few quirky accessories. Stars and stripes forever.

Poolside BBQs
If barbecues are your jam, this is the outfit for you. Not only is this dress pretty, but its cut ensures you'll be comfortable hanging out poolside, (veggie?) hot dog or hamburger in hand.

Rooftop Parties
For these swankier get-togethers, let your outfit step outside the traditional T-shirt-and-denim-cutoffs mold. Instead, a collar-embellished top and billowy, wide-leg pants will look mighty fine.

Beach Retreats
There's nothing like a day at the beach...in the perfect bathing suit. This retro-inspired Giejo two-piece is begging to be Instagrammed — preferably next to the volleyball court so you can claim you did more than just lie in the sand all day long. Hey, no judgments here.
