White shirt, blue jeans, red sandals, striped red shirt, fourth of july outfit

Independence Day is in a little over a week! Do you know how you’re celebrating yet? Regardless of whether you’re attending a backyard grill-out or partying it up at the beach, America’s birthday is a fun opportunity to dress up and bring out the red, white, and blue!

Since I’ve committed to Slow Fashion Season (a movement where 13,000+ people around the world have pledged to not buy any new clothes for the next three months), I’ve compiled a few secondhand looks from ThredUp for you to draw inspiration from!

1. Red Mini-Dress

There’s nothing like a show-stopping red dress!
