No need to wear red, white, AND blue. Picking one is patriotic enough for me!

I just wore a comfy red cotton dress with little white flowers printed all over. It didn't scream AMERICA but it put me in the mood.

If we have a barbeque I wear red, white and blue and dress the kids in red, white and blue. It's fun!

It's the only time of the year when you CAN wear a complete red, white, and blue outfit and not feel totally cheesy, so you must take advantage!

I've actually seen a lot of cute patriotic shirts that are not red, white and blue. Kohl's sells a lot of pastel ones with some red, white and blue and some that are in pastels with the letters 'USA.' I don't think it has to be R,W & B to be patriotic. Maybe in the past it was more common to wear R, W & B but I was at a party today and nobody had it on. Fourteen of us had on regular clothes. Nothing wrong with that.

I dress up for all the holidays - cheesy I know! But I don't go all crazy and everything. I will wear blue jeans, a red shirt and like a white jacket or white flip flops. But I can't dress up for July 4th tonight, I'll be working! lol

Sure! I'm not afraid to show the love! I'm currently wearing jeans, a white top, and a red beaded necklace. I look quite fashionable, thank you very much. :raspberry:

It depends - I just happen to have a navy cotton skirt with cream polka dots, and I'm going to wear it with a white blouse and my red Steve Maddens to fireworks tonight, if I end up going. But it's not like I'd go BUY an outfit or post flags all over the place - it's mostly because I just happen to have the ingredients.

I think it's cute to wear patriotic colors on the 4th (as an American). I always do, but today it's a red ribbed tank top and blue jeans and white sandals, so it's not over-the-top. Wearing red, white, and blue doesn't have to be cheesy.

if you were a true american and really proud of your country and want to show your appreciation for what they do for u, i don't see why not? of course it doesn't always have to be so cheesy like wearing a damn shirt with a flag on it because everyone has their own taste in clothes and fashion... as for me, i tend to step out of my box and try to have fun with my outfits... i mean, it's only one freaking day! and it's totally your choice to wear it or not. i'm a participator and a lover, not a hater unless people hate on me. :raspberry: but this is my fashion motto "haters, quit being jealous of me"... :P

Not applicable. But a lady at work who is American was wearing red, white and blue and had flags sticking out her bags - she looked quite cute.

I'm American, but I would NEVER wear red, white and blue together. Lol!

I am today but its because I have an outfit handy. If I didn't I wouldn't bother. I have gone to 4th picnics wearing totally different colors.

I think it's approriate but you don't have to do it. I like to do it as long as it doesn't look cheesy. :ROTFL:

I'm not American. But on Queensday I wear orange. But not red, white and blue (which are also Dutch colors) ;D

Well a comparable question for me would be "Do you wear green on St Patricks day?" and the answer would be a resounding "NO"

I love dressing in holiday colors. I get it from my family, although I don't do it a la cheesy. But my mom manages to look cute in her flag earrings and sweater, and those darn baseball looking Keds.

If I was American I would totally do that, for St. George's day and St. Andrew's I dress up in the colours. (I'm English and Scottish)

No way, not on purpose anyway. Maybe I'll wear 1 or 2 colors but not all 3....

No cheesy to wear all - you could do it separately though. All about being subtle.
