Fourth of July is here and with it come all the best things: fireworks, cookouts, long weekends by the pool… It’s the ultimate celebration, and nothing feels more festive than the perfect holiday outfit. If you’ll be rocking a bathing suit on America’s birthday, look no further. We've got all the red, white and blue swimsuit style inspo you need. *Cue the fireworks*
1. festive americana
Well, not to be obvious, but there’s no better time to embrace Americana--think patchwork and folksy patterns — than the Fourth of July. America deserves for you to bring it, right? Choose an Americana-themed swimsuit that’s red, white and blue with a homespun, sweet look like the Red White And Blue Paisley Self-Tie Bikini. It has an adorable mix of that trendy bandana-print that’s been everywhere lately (including Kylie Jenner’s insta). Wear it with a USA-themed scrunchie, like the White Print Bowknot Hair Tie, which looks especially cute when your locks are knotted up in a high bun at the beach. We’re particularly partial to pairing these vintage Americana-inspired styles with chunky clogs and a cute cover up to really nail the look.
2. patriotic romance
Yes, you can wear red, white and blue swimsuits to celebrate America’s birthday without sacrificing one bit of your feminine style. Opt for a unique take the season's colors with a floral swimsuit like the Wait For Love Print One-piece. Floral prints are the best because they’re festive enough for Independence Day and cute enough for the rest of year. Honestly, when you start taking florals into consideration the red, white and blue swimsuit possibilities are endless.
Pair it with lace shorts and accessorize with a dainty necklace (the Bohemian Sunflower Necklace goes with everything) for a simply sweet poolside look. If you really want a full lewk, up your style game with an IG-worthy beach towel. These were basically made for taking cute pics.
3. red, white & boho
Maybe your look is more California chill than America rah-rah. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. A perfect example of this: the Bohemian Print Top. It’s the perfect thing to throw on after the beach, whether you’re heading to a fireworks fiesta or a camp-style bonfire on Independence Day. The patchwork print gives off major vintage vibes--making it ideal for mixing with a favorite pair of cutoffs and some perfectly worn-in Birks.
Loving the boho look but want a girlier option? Try the Datura Flower Print Cover Up. American flag colors, check! Stylized “where’d you get that?” print? Check! This one’s a must for Fourth of July but totally works with all kinds of bathing suits long after the fireworks are over. Complete the boho beach babe look with stacked bracelets and a layered necklace.
4. american classic
Stripes are a Fourth of July classic and for good reason. They’re timeless, chic and super easy to pull off. Keep it simple while still proudly wearing your American colors with the Red White And Blue Strappy Bikini. This two-piece style features a striped bottom and a solid bralette bikini top with sexy strappy details in the back. Clean-lined, straightforward bikini styles like these will still be cute next Fourth of July, next summer and pretty much forever. Pair it with with subtle star accessories for an extra festive touch.
5. Retro glam
If you’re into the golden age of Hollywood, make like a movie star with a high-waisted bikini set like the Night Floral Bikini With Moulded Cups. The floral-print top has a halter neckline with molded cups for extra shape and support, while the vintage-inspired bikini bottom is designed with a high waist that holds everything in. Plus, the ruching in front disguises any bumps or lumps--because what’s the Fourth of July without some barbecue? Up the glam factor with a floor-length cover up and statement earrings.
Whatever you’re doing (or wearing) this Independence Day, we hope you enjoy yourself while you celebrate the good ole U.S.A.!
