The Fourth of July is, above all else, an opportunity to gather with family and friends. But with the national holiday comes what can be a fashion-lover’s biggest nightmare: the daunting color combination of red, white, and blue, and the potential attempt to master all three colors in one classy outfit. Naturally, your options can feel a bit limited, and even redundant, especially when you’re only working with three specific shades.

Whatever you choose to do this Independence Day, the best way to celebrate is in a look that speaks to your confidence and unique personality. It’s time to get inspired by summer street style so you can put together an ensemble that’s fitting for the full season and has maybe just a subtle hint of patriotic spirit. Fortunately, there are plenty of chic ways to work these bold colors into your outfit and put your own flair on the standard holiday uniform. Whether you team a breezy dress with a favorite pair of sneakers; opt for a monochromatic, all-red ensemble; or select your go-to denim cutoffs as the foundation of your outfit, you’ll be glad for keeping these handy ideas on rotation for the next few months.
