Red, white and awesome: the best July 4th fashion trends
July 4th is one of my favorite holidays — picnics, fireworks and friends, what could be better? It's also the one weekend I can wear red, white and blue together and not think twice about breaking fashion rules. It's fun to leave the rules behind for a little bit. Here are some of my favorite July 4th fashion trends. I ordered the trends from smallest American flag influence to pieces for the most hardcore July 4th fans. (If you want some inspiration on how to dress for July 4th without wearing anything with an American flag, check out this card.)
Rock some fun American flag accessories, including sunglasses, a coin pouch, a headband and hair bows. These accessories let you show your American pride without being a walking American flag.
Add some more American pride to your accessories with an American flag printed backpack. A backpack is a great bag for the holiday weekend — it keeps all of your necessities in one place without getting in the way of having fun.
Graphic tees are a great way to show your American pride. Tees also are super casual, which is great for a holiday where you will spending a lot of it outside.
This is where we jump to fashion for the hardcore fans of July fans. I know that these American flag socks will not be for the majority of July 4th participants (full disclosure: I have a pair). I like to wear them pushed down underneath a pair of boots or high-top sneakers.
These American flag leggings are for the really hardcore fans. I recommend pairing them with a very simple shirt and neutral shoes.
No matter what you wear, show that American pride!
