Fourth of July weekend is finally here. If you want to dress patriotically but not be so literal about it, we've put together looks inspired by some of Hollywood's biggest style stars.
For holidays that have color themes, like the 4th, it's best not to wear all of the colors at the same time—instead, choose one or two. For a more minimal vibe, go with white (and a Tide To Go pen) and pair it with either red or blue—this colorway will also make your look re-wearable. Remember, you don't have to wear the exact color tones to drive home a festive mood. For cobalt, try a navy or a cerulean; for red, give a ruby or burgundy hue a go. Read on to shop outfit ideas for every type of 4th of July occasion inspired by Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jamie Chung.
