Huge thanks to Old Navy and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post
The Fourth of July is coming up, and today I’m partnering with Old Navy and ShopStyle to share some outfit ideas for the holiday weekend (that you can wear all summer long)! Our July 4th celebrations usually include a barbecue with friends, potentially some time at the pool, and watching fireworks from a hill nearby our house, and Old Navy has some realllyyyy cute items for it all. Also, you can get up to 50% off storewide through 6/24!
Old Navy is one of my go-to stores, and I have been wearing some of their current items on repeat! A lot of you say you struggle with casual summer style, and Old Navy has a ton of summer-ready statement tops with things like embroidery, texture, and summery prints that you can pair with denim shorts for instantly stylish outfits that are still casual and easy to wear. They also have a huge selection of denim shorts in a range of size groupings, including straight, petite, tall, and plus sizes, with different lengths, rises, washes, and fits so that you can find shorts that work for you. I especially love how many options they have for shorts with 4″ to 5″ inseams! (See them HERE!)
On top of their selection and size range, I just love how easy it is to shop at Old Navy, especially online. They offer free shipping on all orders over $50, and free return shipping on all orders (!!) which is so important to be able to try pieces and try different sizes risk-free. You can also order online and opt for their Buy Online, Pick Up In Store or Curbside option so that you can get your items sooner while being able to shop from the comfort of your home.
So, let’s talk outfit ideas for July 4th! Whether you want super low-key outfits or something a little dressier, there are some cute options for you that will not only work for the holiday weekend but will work for pretty much any summer activity. 👏🏽
SIZING: I’m 5’6” and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.
First up is this ADORABLE red top with ruffle sleeves and embroidered trim! It’s lightweight, and the elastic at the waist gives the top structure and shape, while the rest floats away from your body and gives you some much welcome airflow. This top is GREAT for a nicer casual look for summer, and while you can wear it pretty much any day this summer, the red is especially great for a Fourth of July BBQ. I LOVE this top, and it makes it so easy to feel cute but casual with denim shorts! Check it out, HERE. I wear size S.
I paired it with these High-Waisted O.G. Jean Shorts, which are a nice medium blue wash. They are fairly thick which helps hold things in a little more securely, but they still feel pretty easy. They feel like they’ll soften up even more over time, too. See them HERE. I wear size 8.
Instead of a standard basic tank top, step it up with a cotton tank with lots of cute details like this one! This handkerchief tank top is very lightweight and flowy so you can stay cooler in the summer while looking stylish. Opting for a tank like this one instantly elevates your outfit without being overly dressy, so you could wear this for a lot of different activities, from a BBQ with friends to a picnic at the park to outdoor concerts, and more!
You could pair the tank with standard blue denim shorts, or you could create a fresh look with white denim shorts instead. This pair is made of thinner material that is fairly soft and lightweight, though it isn’t see through at all. It has a slightly longer inseam of 5″ and a leg opening of 11.5″ when laid flat. I’ve said before that white shorts are fantastic for instantly freshening up summer outfits, so if you need a pair, check these out HERE! I’m wearing size 6.
If you’re in the market for shorts with around a 4″ to 5″ inseam, there are PLENTY of options at Old Navy. See them all HERE.
For an outfit with an even more relaxed and easygoing vibe, try this Live Free t-shirt! It is incredibly soft, so you’ll be super comfortable while you celebrate! Pull it together by tying the bottom into a knot and adding a little jewelry, like earrings or a cuff. Find the tee HERE. I’m wearing size M which is fairly oversized on me without the knot.
If you want this in a sweatshirt version for a cooler evening around a bonfire or at the beach, check out the Live Free sweatshirt, HERE.
You could pair this tee with medium wash denim shorts or the white shorts from the previous outfits, or you can go with dark blue Bermuda shorts like I’m doing here. These shorts are VERY soft and stretchy! They are so, so comfortable! If you need a pair of denim shorts you can easily move around in, check these out, HERE! I wear size 6.
Those are three outfits you could wear for July 4th weekend!
