An Easy Breezy Fourth of July Outfit for Women Over 50 Styled High Low

Are you ready to wear your stars and stripes on the Fourth of July? You don’t have to go all-out “flag”, unless of course you want to. However, you can still be patriotic and don our country’s colors and do it in a sophisticated way. Here’s how to style a cool and easy-to-wear Fourth of July outfit for women over 50. All of these pieces are quite basic and versatile and will make welcome additions to your wardrobe and can be worn all summer long.

A  Fourth of July Outfit Styled High Low

You can style this outfit all high-end (on the left) or save some American dollars and wear the lower-priced pieces (mirrored on the right). Or you can mix up the pieces from both sides for what is known as high-low styling.

The White Sundress

Every woman needs a little black dress, but in the summer she needs a little white dress. When the temperatures soar, usually around the Fourth of July, an easy, breezy, midi sun dress is the way to go. I adore this this Cinq à Sept Amber Tiered Midi Dress for $445. The fitted bodice with an adjustable belt is so flattering and the midi length is easy to wear. The wide straps are secure and you can wear a strapless bra under this dress. But you can save a lot of cash and pick up this PRETTYGARDEN Flowy Tired Maxi Beach Dress for only $46.98 from Amazon. It’s missing a lot of the refined details, but it will work the same way.

Fourth of July Outfit Red Handbag

Add a pop of color with a red handbag. Red is a classic and you can wear this bag into the fall to brighten up other outfits. If you already have an “it bag” or two in neutral colors, this bold red Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Crossbody Bag for $2,500 is a sound investment because you can carry it this summer and it for years to come. But if red is a color you reserve solely for American holidays, this ZEDIUH Woven Crossbody Bag from Amazon may be all you need for only $49.99. (That’s only 1/50th of the price of the Bottega bag!)

Blue Denim Sandals

Nothing is more American than denim, and you may have noticed the trend in blue denim footwear this season. It’s a perfect color because, just like your blue jeans, you can wear denim shoes with just about anything. These embellished Nalebe Aurum Slide Sandals are showstoppers for $560. They will make a statement every time you wear them, which will be a lot! Or you can get these blue denim Nina Slide Sandals from A New Day™ at Target for 20 bucks!

Red Framed Sunglasses

If you are at a daytime party for the Fourth, you will need to protect your eyes. These bright red Kate Spade New York Fay 54mm gradient cat eye sunglasses for $165 are a retro-classic shape and would look good on most of us. What? You always loose your sunglasses? Well you can be carefree with these Amazon Mosanana Square Cat Eye Sunglasses in red for a mere $14.99.

Star-Shaped Sparkly Earrings

Who doesn’t love sparkly stars? Add a simple accessory to complete your Fourth of July outfit with these Badgley Mischka Collection White Gold Lab Created Diamond Star Stud Earrings for $1,499.97. You’ll feel like a star every time you wear these sparkly earrings. But if you want to get a similar look for less, Amazon offers these Hiqmic Store 925 Sterling Silver Fashion Star Rhinestone Stud Earrings for only $14.99.
