There's nothing better than the 4th of July: spending time with friends and family, enjoying some fresh air and sun, eating hotdogs and burgers on the grill, not to mention a 3-day weekend!

While the first official holiday of summer is great, it can be tough to pack for. You want to look patriotic but not in an over-the-top way, you want to be comfortable and you want your outfit to work whether you're up at the lake, hanging in the Hamptons or doing the urban thing.

4th of July Weekend is easy to overpack for, too, which is never fun, but holiday travel can be tricky. Yes, your trip is longer than a typical weekend away, but it's not exactly a 10-day vacation where you need to pack everything you own.

Luckily, we've got some helpful packing tips for you! We're all about efficient and stylish travel, so we've got all the Independence Day necessities you could ever need, but nothing you don't -- patriotic tank tops, star-spangled baseball hats, red and blue sandals, denim cut-offs and more!
