Patriotic Look 1: Keeping It Casual
Maybe you don’t have any huge 4th of July plans. Perhaps you’re just having a couple friends over to celebrate and chill in the backyard. In that case, we say go for an outfit that is both casual and comfortable. A pair of denim shorts and perhaps a striped t-shirt? Denim is a great choice for an easy 4th of July look since it gives you your necessary mix of blue. Now just find yourself a red and white top, and you’re ready to go!
