Baby, you're a firework — show them what you're worth outfitted in the coolest finds from our entire catalog this hot holiday weekend.

Whether you're sticking close to home with your pals in the backyard with sparklers, headed to points along the eastern seaboard, kicking up well-heeled heels in Texas, or packing up the whole family for a much-needed summer getaway, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Gap, Athleta, and Intermix have got you covered.

Inspired by the brand's legacy of exploration and adventure, our representatives from Banana Republic suggest this vacation-ready Heritage Floral Silk Romper and the Celina sandal.

Curated collections from Intermix took us everywhere from Palm Beach Florida to dense, urban Chicago with gladiator sandals, denim, tie-waist shorts from the popular Derek Lam 10 Crosby collection, and more.

“I am having a casual and relaxing staycation: A day trip to Rockaway Beach to soak up the sun and lunch at Rockaway Taco. Then I'll head back to the city to watch the fireworks from my roof," said Allyson Jones, assistant buyer of jewelry and accessories at Intermix, whose curated collection included knee-high Ancient Greek sandals, sunglasses from Illesteva, an off-the-shoulder crop top, and denim shorts from rag & bone.

You weren't going to skip your pre-barbeque workout, were you? Because Athleta has ideas for your whole holiday, from the a.m. calorie burner all the way to the evening get-together under the stars.

They suggest combining the Hypersonic Sonar Shortie — lauding its sleek compression and wicking fabric for added comfort — with a lightweight Crunch 2 Tank in Sapphire Blue and the Sprint Reversible Boxed Out Bra.
