How to Show Off Your Patriotic Style

Jul 02, 2014

The Fourth of July is the perfect time to show off how proud you are to be an American. So toss your black hoodie aside and take a look at these Independence Day fashion alternatives. It's all about the red, white and blue, baby!

Proud to Be American

Every year, clothing stores across the country try to cash in on the abundance of American pride. The only problem is, there are a ton of ugly t-shirts out there that you wouldn't want to be seen wearing. That's where Old Navy and American Eagle can help you out. They both have their own US lines with great shirts, shorts, hats and more. They're cheap and look great with shorts or a denim skirt. Hit up their sites at www.oldnavy.com and www.ae.com.

Star-Spangled Sandals

If you're heading to the beach this Independence Day, why not slip into some star-spangled sandals? Score yourself a pair of American flag flip flops at your local Old Navy or a similar retailer, but if they're not your thing, you can just as easily put patriotic pride in your stride with red, white or blue sneakers.

i know the feeling. but i got taken off a website instead of my friends. i can assure you they probably feel the same and are missing you, BUT its not worth dwelling over it. friends come and go without any choice in life and trust me, i lost the love of my life and my two of the best friends in the world. The thing is, you have to move on, because they wouldent want you feeling sad over them right? they'd want you to be the happy person you were when you were with them! for starters, i'll be your friend so your not scared to make some new ones. To be honest, i went through the exact same thing as you did and it DOES hurt very bad. But once you find some people that are willing to make you feel better, you know you've chosen the right friends again

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :) Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :)
