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.

talk to the person you're closest too. yes, you said you don't get close with people, but there's probably one person who you speak to more often than others- talk to that person.

First: WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T KILL YOUSELF! When you get past this you'll be glad. Well, this is just my opinion, but I think you should first find someone, anyone, even if you don't trust them, if there're your parents talk to them about it. I bet a bunch of people have already told you this but there're right. Before you walk up to them, write down what you're going to say and then think of a few questions they might ask and write down the answers to them. Remember to tell them that it might take you a minute to think of an answer. Before you answer, think of the exact words you will say  before you say anything, and think in your mind about it. Think about wether it is a lie or not before you say it. If it gets out of you mouth before you realize it is a lie, don't be afraid to say so and just say the truth. Also, just try to find something you like to do that will take your mind off everything. If you really can't think of anything, try just practicing saying your feelings to yourself, or a pillow or something.  Hope this helps!
