Wondering what to wear at 4 p.m.M July when your wardrobe budget has already tightened like an elastic waistband on pizza night?
Trouble with holidays like Independence Day here. This is a big, important day. You want to show your patriotism and proudly show your red, white and blue. So you tank an American flag and sneakers that you wear once cost $ 60. Those pieces then end up in the back of the closet, collecting dust for at least a year.
This is not a way to manage your clothing budget. Especially not now, when inflation continues to rise and your retirement account balance can be upset.

What to wear 4M July: Barbecue at the back of the house
1. Tie-back tank (28)
Among the picks on my list, this sleeveless tank is the most daringly patriotic. Yes, there’s an American flag on the front – but it’s softened by the beautiful sunflower shape. Another design element that puts this top on my list is the rear cutout with tie. Tie it tight or loose to flatter your shape.
This is a lightweight viscose knit, so if you live somewhere hot and humid it may not be the right choice. Check out the next section below for a cooler, less sticky option.

2. Red Stripe Tank ($ 30)
You can subtly express your patriotism with a basic red striped tank. Pair it with denim shorts for a perfect, but casual red-white-and-blue outfit (see below).
I like ethnographic striped tanks for some reason. The cut around the shoulder is very flattering. Also, it is ideal for summer without slim fit and long-crop length. You don’t have to stop it, or you don’t have to worry about looking shapeless.

3. Denim shorts ($ 31)
Denim Bermudas is the main item of clothing. I wear them again and again throughout the summer – wearing them with tunics, tanks and tees.
You can find a pair of denim shorts cheaper than these – say in the Old Navy. But if you plan to wear these often, it makes sense to spend a little more on quality. As I see it, two outfits for 15 are “more expensive” than 30 outfits for 30.
This levy cuts short because the brand is reliable in terms of fit and quality.
What to wear 4M July: Beach party
4. Maxi dress for two for one ($ 19)
The best beach party outfits on July 4th take you from the goddess-like ride on the sand, to the chips in the chips, to the uninterrupted view of the sunset from your beach chair. Check out all those boxes of this maxi dress from Tobi. Also, the multi-colored stripe is patriotic without being kitsky.
At 4 p.m.MWear it on your suit with sandals on the beach. Later, you can pair it with a denim jacket and sneakers for a city tour or for shopping with your friends.
5. Multitasking Three-Piece Suite (29)
This swimming set includes a decent boy’s short bikini bottom, racerback top and long blue swimming tank – all for less than 30. You don’t really need a coverup with this ensemble. Wear three pieces, slip on your flip flops, grab a towel and sunscreen and you’re ready to go.
The bikini pieces on this set have American colors, with a subtle touch to the flag. If you want more patriotism in your Independence Day attire, you can easily combine this set with any one of the following accessories.

Americana accessories will be your choice
If you are not ready to invest in American flag tanks, buy accessories instead. You can wear them yourself, or combine them with some of the pieces above if you feel like it.
6. Beach bag ($ 30)
A giant utility tote that is tough and foldable for 30? Yes. This tote can be your summer MVP for a trip to the beach, park, backyard party or even the grocery store. The red, white and blue color scheme is perfect for your 4th of JulyM Celebration – but also a Tommy Hilfiger vibe that fits all year round.
7. Sneakers (Sale $ 28)
Say, it’s easier to stay away with a bold sneaker than a star-and-stripe top. After all, your secrets are on the ground, so people don’t see it first when you enter a house. I like this pair because the colors are muted – so they will draw attention without claiming it.
You can sell these Blowfish Malibu sneaks on Amazon for 38.
8. Neck or Hair Scarf ($ 8)
An Americana-inspired scarf is your less promising choice for July 4thM Teams are even cheaper at $ 8. On Independence Day and beyond, you can wear this beautiful piece to your hair, your neck or your wrists and ankles.
