It’s the week of Independence Day in the US, and that means people are fully embracing their patriotic side in all areas.  The 4th of July is all about everything red, white and blue… and of course, celebrating America.  While you may not be one to want to wear an American flag pair of shorts or dress, you probably want to look and feel patriotic on a special holiday like this.  We’ve come up with a few of our favorite patriotic style essentials we think every woman needs to feel patriotic in a chic way.

White Shorts
Typically the weather is warm on the 4th of July, which means you’re going to be in full-on summer wear.  White shorts are a must to give you that all American look no matter what they’re paired with, plus they never go out of style!  There’s something so truly American about jeans and jean shorts, adding the twist of white gives you that extra patriotic feel.

Red + White or Blue + White 
So we all know red, white and blue are everything America so naturally around holidays like the 4th of July we want to wear as many of the colors as possible.  We suggest investing in at least one item of clothing that’s the color combination of red and white, or blue and white.  Most often you’ll find these color combinations in polka dots or stripes, giving that all American nautical vibe to your look that’s perfect for embracing your patriotism.  However, just because they’re patriotic doesn’t mean you can’t wear them on other occasions throughout the year.  Whichever color combination you feel most drawn to, and feel will wear the most go with that one!  But you’re going to want at least one to make sure you’re prepared on the American holidays.

Let’s be serious, we all know we love a theme and any excuse to be full on in the holiday spirit even when it comes to our nails.  We all love Christmas themed nails in the winter time, and we can’t forget about our mani in the summer for the 4th!  Make sure you have a bold red nail polish on hand at all times.  Not only is it a classic color that always looks chic, but it’s fun and easy way to embrace the holiday spirit down to your nails.  If you want to get fancier than just red, take to sites like Pinterest for inspiration.  There are a ton of really amazing manicures that are American themed for the holiday.

The 4th of July is always a fun holiday to celebrate, it’s the middle of summer, and it’s all about celebrating the country.   Americans everywhere tend to be even more proud to be American and love an excuse to show their patriotism through what they wear for the occasion.  While there are so many other ways to show the holiday spirit through your style, these are our must haves.
