Nothing screams I love America! like a red, white, and blue ensemble. A popular summer trend that always reaches its peak around the Fourth of July, flag-themed clothing is popping up everywhere right now. With options as varied as recipes for apple pie, we’ve selected a few of our favorite looks of the moment.
A scarf is a great way to incorporate American spirit into an outfit without overdoing the theme. Free People’s Tattered Flag Scarf ($38) is available in red, white, and blue or muted charcoal tones.
Ideal for outdoor concerts or as a bikini-topper, Urban Outfitters’ muscle shirt ($58) caught our eye.
Also from Urban Outfitters, Tripp NYC’s Retro Flag Jeans ($126) aren’t too holiday literal, making them cool enough to wear all year.
Booming in popularity in recent years, is there any other flag-emblazoned item as iconic as the American flag bikini? Ralph Lauren’s version ($65 top, $47 bottom) offers mix-and-match options.
Towering Lita platform boots by Jeffrey Campbell ($160) take stars and stripes to new heights – 9.25 inches, to be exact.
Then again, jewelry is a great way to add a hint of American flair, if you’re not ready to go the full-on disco boot route. We like this sweet little beaded star necklace from American Eagle ($15.50).
Finally, we present Baby & Toddler Shortalls ($44) from FlagClothes.com, just because they’re so freakin’ cute. Adorable matching floppy hat sold separately.
