4th of July Fashion: What To Wear This Weekend

For the next few days, we’re living by the motto “grill, chill, shop, repeat.” With a long weekend ahead, we have one thing on our minds: epic fun. Fourth of July weekend is the most hyped weekend of the summer, and we can’t wait to see where you take your #AEOSTYLE! Whether your July 4 activities include hitting the water for tubing or boating or just kicking back with friends at home, #AEOSTYLE will carry you through in good fashion. Our best tip for picking out your Independence Day clothing is to go for an understated Americana feel. Even with just a hint of red, white & blue spirit, you can show off your USA pride and look good while you’re at it.

GIRLS: If there were ever a time to rock the latest neck-tie bandana trend, this weekend is it. A bold red bandana has a classic American vibe. Update this tried-and-true style staple by pairing it back to a bleached, light blue tee & hi-rise shorties in a bright wash. Wide-strapped espadrille flats give the look a trend-right finish.

What to wear this Independence Day: Show off your Americana #AEOSTYLE.

GUYS: Show off your American spirit in true #AEOSTYLE. Try a different 4th of July approach this year, and give your typical graphic tee some edge. Pair your flag t-shirt with destructed, black denim cutoff shorts for a simpler, cooler feel than your typical July 4 look. Add some bright white sneaks and head out to that holiday BBQ.

Show off your 4th of July #AEOSTYLE with just a hint of Americana pride but all of the holiday spirit.
