7 Red, White, and Blue Ensembles You’ll Actually Want to Wear Come July 4th

Any national holiday is a good excuse for dressing up, but there’s a serious difference between cute and campy. Take style notes from these mujeres who pulled off this tricky fashion challenge.

1. Jennifer Lopez

Studded, peep-toe booties make everything better. Jenny from the block got in the patriotic spirit in these red heels that were made for walking, along with classic blue jeans and a menswear-inspired white blazer. 

2. Jessica Alba

Jess paired her Rebecca Minkoff navy ‘Ace Jacket’ with loose-fitting red pants, a white striped blouse, and blue wedges when she hosted Operation Shower recently (a baby shower for expectant and new U.S. Navy families). Proof you can look festive and ladylike at the same time.

3. Eva Mendes

And the headscarf strikes again! Our favorite retro ‘do lovin’ Latina, Eva, accessorized a graphic-print blue and white shift dress with a red statement necklace and red and blue wrap – finished with her signature sexy shades.

4. Bella Thorne

Of course Bella can pull off tie-dye short shorts in July 4th appropriate colors and look super cute while doing it. (Having a hottie boyfriend doesn’t hurt either.)

5. Demi Lovato

Who says this trifecta of shades has to pertain to clothing only? Demi’s blue-hued hair is clearly working with her red lip and jacket and white top.

6. America Ferrera

America Ferrera

Given her name is America, it makes sense that she would be a fan of this color scheme. She looked amazing in a white pencil skirt and navy halter top with red lips and nails.

7. Selena Gomez

She may have swapped blue for black, but this look still gets the job done. We’re totally loving the embellished high-low skirt.
