In case you haven’t checked your weather app yet, summer is officially here! The temperatures are up, and the 4th of July will be here before you know it. It’s never too early to make plans for one of the most patriotic days of the year. No matter what your Independence Day plans are, the summer heat will follow you there.
So what do you wear when you are trying to dress your best while staying cool and comfortable in the summer scorcher? This post will give you the best advice on what to wear from your head to your toes to create the perfect 4th of July outfit!
HEAD & HAIR
If the sun is shining and the air is humid, wearing your hair down can be a pain, uncomfortable, or sometimes even impossible. Try going for a chic up-do. Wearing your hair in a messy bun or braids will not only keep you cooler, it also gives your the opportunity to show off your accessories. You could also accessorize with a patriotic headband to add a little sparkle!
Pulling your hair back gives you chance to show off your favorite statement earrings! If you are going for the bold, statement-making look, put on some red, white, or blue dangle earrings like our Red Hot Earrings or our Like A Star Earrings. But if big earrings aren’t your thing, you can still show off your confidence and accessorize with a pair of stud earrings like our Salty Sapphire Anchor Studs or incorporate stars and stripes into your look with our Starfish Stud Earrings.
Wearing the right necklace is important because it can really pull a look together. If you are wearing a plain top, make it pop by adding a statement necklace. Make your look edgy by adding camouflage print to your Independence Day outfit with our Stars & Stripes Choker Necklace. If you’re going for a more relaxed and whimsical look, try wearing a funny patriotic tank top. Then a simple choker, like our Blue Beaded Choker Necklace, is the best accessory for your outfit. Not in the mood to wear a necklace? It is still easy to show your playful side by adding a red, white and blue or patriotic print scarf as the perfect accessory alternative.

If you don’t own any patriotic clothing, now is the time to get them! Wearing a festive 4th of July themed tank top is any easy way to wear a comfortable t-shirt that’s still fashionable. Our American flag inspired tank top is lightweight, so you’ll definitely look and stay cool in the sun.

Bracelets are always a good idea! They can definitely improve an outfit, turning basics from drab to fab in an instant, with a style all your own. Wearing a combination of red, white and blue bracelets adds layers to your look, creating the perfect arm party. Layering bracelets like our Buddha bracelet, elephant bracelet, and semi-precious beaded bracelet add stripes to your look, which is an important part of a July 4th #OOTD.
Finding the perfect ring can be hard to do, and sometimes it can be expensive. Lucky for you, Wild Lilies Jewelry is having a sale on rings!

KNEES, ANKLES & TOES
What could be more American than denim? Throw on some jean shorts and you’re ready for your Independence Day party. Jeans match everything, so don’t worry about them messing up your look.
If you’re bearing your legs, a trendy beach anklet is a perfect compliment to a toned and tan summer bod! For your shoes, our suggestion is to keep it simple, chances are you’re going to be running around, dancing and on grass. Finish off your look with a pair of wedges, fashionable flip flops, or casual sneakers.
