How To Dress For Fourth of July
Fourth of July, a time for barbecues, festivals, fireworks and celebration. It’s also the one time of the year when you can bust out the head-to-toe red, white and blue and stars and stripes. To help get you into the star-spangled spirit, here are five quick ways to dress patriotic this Independence Day.
1. Patriotic Necktie Or Bow Tie
An obvious choice from us! There are two ways to go when donning a patriotic tie: Full-on stars and stripes or subtle shades of red, white and blue. Browse our selection of patriotic ties for those stars and stripes. For a more subtle look, choose ties in red and/or blue that aren’t specific to Independence Day. This might a solid red tie or a red and blue paisley bow tie. Whichever look you go with, keep your necktie in place with an American flag tie bar.
2. Shorts And A Polo
Let’s face it, July can be hot! If you’re attending a backyard barbecue for the Fourth, it might be too warm for a tie and collared shirt—especially if you’re doing the cooking. Instead, throw on a pair of shorts and polo. Stick to the day’s theme by color blocking your look. A solid red polo with navy blue shorts, or vice versa.
3. American Flag Suspenders
Suspenders aren’t just for holding up your trousers, they can be a fashion statement as well. American flag suspenders are a simple and fun way to show your patriotism this July 4th, and easily can be added to any ensemble. Heck, you can even pair these suspenders with those shorts and polo!
4. Patriotic Socks
Whether you’re at the office or with the family, patriotic socks are essential to your Fourth of July attire. Look for patriotic designs or go crazy and mix and match one solid red and one solid blue sock. Don't worry about wearing slacks with your star-spangled crew socks either. On a day like Independence Day, pull up your socks and show them off with a pair of shorts and boat shoes. Trust us, someone is going to tell you "great socks."
