What to Wear to July 4 Festivities

In Style

Get your wardrobe in check for the hot holiday weekend festivities in St. Louis.

The Daytime Diva – If you’re planning on heading to the Gateway Arch this holiday you want to be sure you’re “fairest” of them all. Pair a classic button-down with a festive pair of shorts to stay cool when hanging by the muggy Mississippi. Grab a few of your favorite accessories and you’re ready for anything from air-shows to rock concerts. Still haven’t nailed down a venue for your chic daytime look? Check out some of the free, family-friendly activities happening during Fair Saint Louis.


Keep it casual chic for an all-day event like Fair Saint Louis. Comfort is key.


Festive Fireworks at the River – Go old school for an evening spent on the Missouri River banks. A pair of ’60s-inspired wide leg pants will keep you cool and clear of pesky bug bites. Opt for a cropped bustier style top to balance the pants and chunky shoes. Bold earrings and an updated clutch will have you ready to make some fireworks of your own. The perfect ensemble for Historic Saint Charles’ Riverfest held annually.


Rooftop Fireworks Party – Independence Day isn’t just for cookouts and festivals. Kick it up a notch on one of St. Louis’ many swanky rooftops. A flirty a-line mini-dress paired with bold accessories in a patriotic palette will have heads turning. Not a loft dweller? No worries, Synergy Productions can set you up at Pointe 400 giving you a rock star view of the Fair Saint Louis fireworks show.


Parking Lot Sale – Channel Cher from “Clueless” in this kitschy floral jumper and crop top. This iconic look will have you feeling inspired to shop through all the one-of-a-kind goodies Hullabaloo has to offer. Hullabaloo is located at 6064 Scanlan Avenue. The sale runs from 7am-2pm Saturday July 6.
