Next Wednesday will be a flurry of sparklers, mustard-covered hot dogs, fruit salads, pool parties and explosions in the sky. Independence Day remains one of the most relaxing holidays of the year, but you shouldn’t let your fashion slip as you crack open a cold one and wait to catch a glimpse of those rare heart-shaped fireworks.
Here are a few patriotic picks to wear at your family picnic. If you order it online before tomorrow, you should have it it time for the Fourth (rush delivery, please)!
First up, are two red, white and denim looks from Urban Outfitters. This button up half-n-half shirt is one of our favorite finds. [$60, www.urbanoutfitters.com]
This cropped denim jacket with flag emblem on the back, is the perfect coverup for your sun-kissed shoulders come sundown. Pair with frayed denim shorts and a white tank top. [$69, www.urbanoutfitters.com]
Okay, okay. One more Urban pick. This thin, tank dress is the perfect bathing suit cover-up for your beachside holiday. [$39, www.urbanoutfitters.com]
Show your country a little leg in these cut-off flag denim shorts. Complete the look with a white pair of Keds or lace-up brown combat boots. [$45, www.ustrendy.com]
Speaking of boots, pop these patriotic Jeffrey Campbell platforms on your feet. [$160, www.nastygal.com]
Our second favorite find of the day is this pair red, white and blue tights. We need them, have to have them. Wear the tights under high-waist denim shorts and pair with a solid-colored blouse. [$33.99, http://www.modcloth.com]
If you are looking to wear something a bit less loud, try a star spangled scarf. Wrap up your hair or hang this accessorie loosely around your neck. [$19.99, www.modcloth.com]
You should be able to find this piece at our nearest Bloomingdale’s in Town Center. The red, white and blue Vineyard Vines bathing suit cover-up has all the necessary colors in a playful, unique design. [$118, www.bloomingdales.com]
This split-design, sheer, button-up, sleeveless, silk blouse is perfect for summer. We love the dark pocket, the little tie near your navel and striped collar. Wear with white capri pants and a neutral flat. [$200, www.net-a-porter.com]
We also found this red, white and blue, appliquéd cotton clutch on Net-A-Porter. Texas (and America) approved! [$275, www.net-a-porter.com]
Lastly, an all-American bathing suit to wear during your day in the sun. [$65, www.ralphlauren.com]
Happy shopping! Go America!
