17 Must Have Dresses For The 4th of July and Summer 2019!

Journalist and blogger Candie Anderson has the scoop on 17 must have 4th of July dresses in red, white and blue that are perfect for summer party season.

 

 

 

The weather has been extremely warm here in Northern California! We are typically in the mid 80s in early June, but it’s been over 100 degrees all week. It’s been so hot that I have been living in lightweight dresses. Who wants to wear shorts and tops when it’s this hot? I know I sure don’t. Give me all the cute dresses for summer!

Well, it’s hard to believe that the 4th of July is only a few short weeks away. Have you decided what you’re going to wear to your friend’s backyard barbecue, the Independence Day parade in your neighborhood, or your beach vacation? If not, you’re definitely not alone! It’s always a struggle to find something in red, white and blue to wear on the big day. You also want something that you’ll want to wear time and time again all summer. If you’ve visited the blog in the past, you know this is something that’s very important to me. I won’t purchase an item without knowing I’ll wear it more than once. I did a little online shopping and was pleased to find so many fun summer dresses that are absolutely perfect for Independence Day, summer vacations, brunch, pool parties and more.

Today, I’m excited to share 18 trendy summer dresses that are not only perfect for the 4th of July but will be a must until fall rolls around come September! You can pair them with your favorite wedge sandals, slides, sneakers, flip flops and more!

 

Must Have Short Dresses You Need For Your Independence Day Party

Nothing says summer time and the living is easy quite like a cozy, comfy t-shirt dress! T-shirt dresses are a must for summer, especially when relaxing a friend’s backyard barbecue, or 4th of July soiree.  I’m loving this quintessential Lilly Pulitzer t-shirt dress! It’ll be on trend for years to come.

Every gal needs a great t-shirt dress that she can just throw on to run errands, sit by the pool, relax on the back patio or wear to a friend’s party! It can be difficult to find one that fits if you’re under 5’4. Thankfully this trendy blue and white dress with a red contrasting neckline is available in regular or petite. You can also wear it as a coverup!

It’s no secret BB Dakota is one of my favorite brands for trendy and affordable fashion! I own many of their tops and dresses and wear them religiously. This dress has been on my wish list for at least a year. It comes in quite a few different colors – from green to black, white, red and that’s just the beginning. I was debating whether I should share a photo of it in white or red, but figured with it being the 4th, I’d share it in red! If you click on the link, it’ll take you to the retailers website and you can see it in both colors.
