4th of July Inspiration from Amazon

by - June 22, 2023

I love the 4th of July. Family, food, fireworks, and festive fashion - what's not to love?

In all seriousness, I have so many good memories attached to this holiday, most involving camping or the lake in some way and always family. Other than the year I was recovering from surgery, I don't think I've ever spent the 4th away from family.

Dressing for the occasion will always be fun for me. There are so many ways to show your patriotism through your clothing without wrapping yourself in a flag. Whether you're looking for subtle or flashy, I've rounded up some fun options for the 4th all from Amazon. They're affordable and will arrive in plenty of time for the big day.

Let's start with my favorite category. Dresses are always a good option. They take the guesswork out of mixing and matching, especially when you're dealing with patterns (stars and stripes, anyone?). I've got four options for you.

Stars and Stripes Maxi - This maxi dress is so cute, y'all. I love the distressed look that keeps the stars and stripes nice and subtle so it's not glaringly obvious you're wearing a flag. But if that's your jam, check out the other options! There are a few flag prints available.

Strapless Navy Blue with Red Swirl - This dress made me think of a firework when I saw it. I love the red swirl against the dark navy. It's showing as strapless but it does come with detachable straps if you're more comfortable with that. There are a few other navy options, as well.

Sleeveless Gingham - Is there anything more patriotic than gingham? This dress is from one of my favorite Amazon brands and good quality. The darker red is my favorite, but I also like the dark blue. There's also a bright red and a light blue.

Strapless Stripes - You can't go wrong with stripes! This is technically billed as a swimsuit coverup. It's got a drawstring waist to give it some shape. I also like the Striblue pattern.


Tops are usually my go-to for this holiday. It's always hot here for the 4th, and we're usually at the lake, so I want something simple to throw on over a swimsuit with a pair of shorts.

America Sunflower Tank - I really like this tank top. It's so cute with the flag pattern flower and the stem spelling out America.

Flag Popsicle Tee - I like how fun this shirt is without being super in your face about the holiday. It's a tee I would wear all summer.

Smocked Strapless Flag - This isn't the type of shirt I usually go with, but I like the lace detail a lot.

Sheer Star - This would be a fun swimsuit cover paired with denim shorts.

USA Sweatshirt - Okay, so I know a sweatshirt isn't really practical this time of year, but I really love this one.


Let me be perfectly honest: I would probably never wear any of these suggestions. That doesn't mean I don't like them. It's just that none of these are really my style. 

Flag Shorts - The fact that I actually like these surprises me more than anyone. There are five other flag patterns available.

Leggings - You know I'm always going to include a pair of leggings in these posts, but finding a pair that wasn't ridiculously obnoxious was difficult. This was the only pair I didn't immediately hate.

PJ Pants - I get that not everyone wants to leave the house. These are for you!

Skort - This is one of those performance skorts like what you would wear to play golf or tennis, but I also think it would be cute for a family reunion or a day at the lake. This is the starry sky pattern, which reminded me of fireworks. There's a flag patterned one, as well, but it wasn't available in all sizes.


Patriotic swimsuits are not really my thing. Or rather, I should say, American flag swimsuits are not my thing. If you're like me and avoid them like the plague, I've got a few cute non-flag options for you!

Blue Stripe Bikini - I don't think you can go wrong with blue-and-white stripes for a patriotic holiday.

Vintage One-Piece - I'm not sure I could pull this off, but I love retro swimsuits. This one comes in quite a few variations of red, white, and blue.

Flag Bikini- I know I said they're not my style, but this one isn't horrible.

Red Cut-Out One-Piece - There's just something timeless about red, and this swimsuit is gorgeous. There's a flag pattern that isn't awful, and I really like the blue stripe.


Sometimes, all you need is a small touch of red, white, and blue to show off your patriotism.

Headband Wraps - I really love this style of headband. It wraps all the way around, making it perfect to wear with a ponytail.

Headbands - If you'd rather stick with a traditional headband, these are a cute option.

Star Earrings - I love these dangly earrings so much.

Tassel Earrings - If you've been around the blog awhile, then you already know my love for tassel earrings. They're such a statement and so much fun.
