When it comes to dressing for holidays, there’s a fine line between looking costumey and just on-theme enough. TFS has picked three all-American looks worn by Coco Rocha, Kate Bosworth, and Khloe Kardashian to inspire your Independence Day outfits. In these looks, baby, you’re a firework.
Tip #1: Go subtle in a classic red-white-and-black color combo.

Red, white, and blue may be patriotic, but if you don’t want to look like Uncle Sam follow supermodel Coco Rocha and try a more subtle red-white-and-black color combination. At the People Like Us screening in NYC, she wore a sleeveless Rag & Bone tuxedo top and candy apple red wide-leg trousers from White House Black Market. Her red pout and winged eyeliner finished the classic look.

Tip #2: Wear your stars and stripes on your sleeve.
At last year’s Coachella, Kate Bosworth looked effortless and laid-back in a look that’s great all summer long, but would be perfect for 4th of July. She added hipster accessories like distressed brown suede kicks, a tusk necklace and aviator sunglasses to her Topshop American flag tank and 7 for all Mankind shorts.

Tip #3: Star print denim shines year-round.
Why should printed denim end at florals and leopard? Take a cue from Khloe Kardashian and pick a pair of star print skinny jeans like her pair by Current/Elliott. She dressed up her denim with a fitted blazer and platform heels. Add a little sparkle to your Independence Day look with a swipe of metallic blue nail polish.
