Whether you’re hitting up a poolside with a cocktail in hand, or heading to a fireworks display in the country, the 4th of July can only mean one thing: fun, fun, fun. While everyone else might show up in a stars-and-stripes swimsuit layered under a pair of mom jeans, we’ve come up with the perfect formula for sticking to the dress code without being basic this year. 

For inspiration, we looked no further than Missguided’s wide selection of regularly updated, on-trend essentials and statement pieces that suit our criteria – all of which just happen to be going on a 50% off sale from July 1st through July 4th (even the items that are already currently on sale). What says “all-American” more than a brand new outfit to celebrate the greatest country on earth? 

Go for a sophisticated, stylish, block-colored look inspired by the flag: think a head-to-toe red power pantsuit with billowing bell sleeves, or an OTT white feather bandeau with some larger-than-life blue palazzo pants that would make Uncle Sam proud. Riff on some of America’s greatest cultural exports, like Baywatch, by sporting an iconic red one-piece – or play on silver-screen cowboy culture with some serious fringe detailing. 

You might still want to inject some of the classic motifs into your look – and also knock back the bold palette a bit – so accessorize wisely with a trucker-fabulous, paisley bandana (which is also totally late-‘80s rock’n’roll chic). Sneak in a star print on the soles of your shoes, or a subtle stripe detail on a pair of stacked sneakers.

No matter how you’re planning to celebrate Independence Day this year, avoid being basic by shopping our color-coded selection of patriotic pieces. If you can hold out until July 1st, all items will be 50% off on the Missguided website using the offer code AMERICANBABE:
