It’s hard to believe, but July 4th is right around the corner (this Friday, to be exact).  Whether you’ll be hitting the beach, going to a party or simply staying at home to catch some nearby fireworks, showing off a little patriotic style is a must. Consider one (or all!) of these four items to get your “Yay-USA” on for the big day.

The Tee

Rock this laid back, flag-emerging-from-mouth-tee at a July 4th party and you’ll definitely turn heads. The fun modal top is perfect for pairing with cute, low-rise cut-offs and a patriotic sandals (or sneakers, see below!).
