Fourth of July is all about fireworks, hot dogs and, of course, killer Americana gear. There are a couple ways to approach dressing to celebrate our country’s birthday — you can go the literal route, covering yourself head to toe in flags along with red, white and blue color schemes or you can take things in moderation by simply introducing a pop of pride into your outfit via stars, stripes or a subtle mix of both. Whatever way you go, you’ll probably need to stock up on some festive holiday pieces since we’re betting your options for 4th of July outfits are pretty limited. To help you out, we compiled a list of the best Independence Day picks that are all worthy of a parade.
