If you watch my Instagram Stories, then you saw that the other day I went thrifting for some inexpensive 4th of July outfits. I have always enjoyed having festive outfits for the Fourth. I like to not take it so literally though. You’ll see in these three ideas, that I took the concept of red, white, and blue and tweaked them to make it more personal. These are also pieces that can be used throughout the year and are not specific to the Fourth of July.
So I went to Savers and was able to find three different styled outfits all for under 25 dollars! I may have found some home pieces too … I can’t hold myself back when I’m there. I did use some pieces from home to style these outfits but the overall look is thrifted.
For the first look, I went with a comfy look that would be great for a picnic or for watching fireworks. I found these incredibly comfortable pants with a fun burgundy print. I paired it with a sleeveless blue and white striped top that I tied in the front. Throw on some comfy red slides and you’re ready for the backyard or the park!
Since Fourth of July is on a Wednesday, there will be a lot of people headed out to work. I found this amazing vintage plaid blazer that will brighten your day. Pair it with a pleated skirt, some heels, and a simple white tank. When I find an older piece like this, I like to keep the jewelry modern so I went with this minimal triangle necklace that my husband gave me and a thrifted gold cuff that reminds me of Wonder Woman.
This last outfit is very boho and would be fun to wear for a family barbecue or get together. I found these linen, pastel blue and white pants that feel like pajamas but allow you to still look chic. I paired it with a cream ruffle tank, some thrifted earrings and this burgundy polka dot scarf. You could also tie the scarf around your neck like a choker for a completely different look. Add some wedges or espadrilles and you have a boho chic Fourth of July outfit.
Those are my three non-literal thrifted outfit ideas. You can be festive without wearing the American flag. Take a color scheme and make it your own. And in case you don’t like thrifting and would like some similar pieces, I did some research for you.
I hope this gives you some inspiration for your next thrifting adventure. There are endless possibilities of affordable, cute, and unique clothes. If you don’t thrift, I encourage you to try it. It’s a good way to recycle, it’s good for the bank account, and it lets you be creative. I’m off to do more projects for the nursery. Have a safe and adventurous weekend!
