Last minute Fourth of July Outfit Ideas for Men on the Go
Easy looks that only take a few minutes to achieve
If you’re here there is a good chance you’ve spaced on the upcoming 4th of July holiday. Don’t worry, though. We’ve put together a couple of looks that are easy baselines to build upon no matter who you are or what style you feel most comfortable in. The beauty of a list like this is that it takes into account the most common styles men wear to give you a better chance at already owning most, if not all, of the pieces discussed. So, without further ado, let’s jump into the first one.
Fourth of July Outfit Idea for: The Prep
For this look, you want to follow your instinct and go with a pair of above knee dress shorts. The lighter the color the better. Instinctually, the next piece you’re going to want to grab is a solid, dark-colored polo. Don’t. Instead, fish out a lightweight long-sleeved shirt. White is classic, but if you can make a pastel pink, yellow, or blue work then go for it. Roll up the sleeves and unbutton the neck to taste. Add to this a pair of brown leather sandals and you’re done.
Fourth of July Outfit Idea for: The Urban Crawler
If your wardrobe consists of everything except dress pants, then this is likely where you’ll find the style for you. The first thing you’re going to do is put the hoodie down. It’s the middle of summer. It’s a weird look. Instead, grab your favorite Longline T-shirt. A light color will work best here. If you really want to wear layers, then a thin trucker jacket will suffice. Pair the tee and trucker with a lightweight, slim-fit jogger. Pull the hem of your joggers up about halfway into your calf for a 90s vibe. Finish off the look with a pair of mid-top sneakers. Solid white is a great baseline, but feel free to make the look your own.
Fourth of July Outfit Idea for: The All Business Man
Men who know that work doesn’t end just because the clock hits 5 p.m. will find the right pieces to build a solid starter outfit here. The first thing you want to do is bust out your most form-fitting polo. You know, the one you wear on at least one casual Friday a month. Color isn’t crazy important, what you’re going for here is “power move casual”. The next piece to consider is a slim-fit chino. If you went light on the shirt, go dark on the pant and vice versa. Roll them up ankle high. Lastly, slip on your favorite pair of boaters – no socks – and a belt to match. Tuck the shirt in and hit the town at your leisure.
