From childhood until today red, white, and blue clothing takes up much of my closet space. So for me, the Fourth of July is not just a national holiday—it’s a sartorial one.
Though I fully support the one-time purchase of an American-flag-printed bathing suit or jean shorts for the holiday weekend (you need to pull out all the stops once in a while!), you can totally invest in some red, white, and blue pieces that will be cute all summer long. Bright red dresses, white eyelet skirts, and navy nautical stripes are all perfect for this weekend’s barbecue and fireworks but don’t have to be shunned from your wardrobe come Monday.
Whether you’re rushing to pack your holiday suitcase or just want to infuse some red, white, and blue into your everyday wardrobe, flip through the pieces below and stock up now. And be sure to check out Fawnia’s piece for some fun and fashionable Independence Day styling ideas!
