Even though the Fourth of July has just passed, we will always have hundreds of reasons for showing our patriotism. We Americans take pride in our country and we are not afraid to show it. Besides being an icon for American culture and history, the “Stars and Stripes” also serves as a timeless fashion motif for clothing, footwear and accessories. A symbol embraced both by locals and foreigners, the American flag is one of the most stylish prints for summer pieces that we, personally, cannot get enough of. Find your inspiration and show your American pride with these 7 summer fashion accessories below.
Ladies look simply fabulous when wearing a starred and striped bikini. It does not matter if they wear the stars on the top and stripes on the bottom, vice versa or mixed up, it really has an awesome effect combined with a killer tan. Blondes will especially shine with this choice of swimwear, achieving an all-American beauty look.
2. Swim Trunks
Don’t worry, guys, you look equally amazing with the American flag on your swimwear. The good ol’ stars and stripes on swim trunks look super cool, especially if the guy wearing them is a surfer. Represent your country while chilling at the beach or riding a wave with style.
Both men and women can easily nail the patriotic look fashionably with an American flag tank top. While ladies look great with a loose fitting tank slightly tucked into a pair of denim shorts, guys can opt for a slim-fitting tank to show off their muscles and their American pride at the same time.
