Last year, I asked all of you a question. Are leggings trendy? Everyday, it seems like leggings are replacing jeans. People are also wearing hybrids called jeggings. They look like jeans but fit like leggings. I bought a black pair of these babies a few months ago and I love them. You can get away with wearing shirts that do not cover your bum, because the material is thicker than leggings. This is the reason many fashionistas are a little irritated with leggings. Some fashionistas believe that leggings should not be used as pants. In some cases I agree. It all depends on the material. Before you leave the house, do a mirror check. If you can see your knickers or your rump (for those of you who go commando), you probably shouldn’t leave the house with these. I don’t think you’ll have a problem with this red, white, and blue leggings.

These leggings are good for a lady that wants to play up the flag element without looking like an exact replica of the flag.
If leggings are a bit too much for you, opt for a hot top. You can show off your American pride without going over the top. Also, don’t mix these with the leggings. You want to look comfortable and a little casual. Most 4th of July gatherings are family gatherings. You don’t need to look runway ready, but you do want to like nice in the pictures.
I like this tank because it doesn’t hug the body. Most of the 4th of July menu is not waistline friendly. No need to worry about feeling uncomfortable in this tank. It’s faded appearance plays of the history of the United States. Historically, it is a young country. Since it was the first to declare its independence from a colonial empire, it is no longer the youngest country on the globe. So, you can look at the United States as the middle child of the globe.
This dress is a great cover. When your taking a break from the pool for some food, throw this baby on.
If you don’t want to make a top of bottom the main attraction, you can always opt for a scarf. Scarves are year round accessories that can add personality to simple outfit. Plus, they can give you protection from a chilly night full of bon fires and fireworks!
The chain is a popular way to wear a scarf. It is loose and lays casually on your shoulders. It can also cover your cleavage. So, scarfs are modest friendly as well.
If you’re an Etsy fan, you can support Three Bird Nest by purchasing this lovely scarf. The fabric is light-weight and would look great with a white tank and denim shorts.
For those of your that have your outfit planned already, but want subtle hints of patriotism, earrings are a great accessories. I am a big fan of jewelry. Most of the time I rock earrings, but I never turn down necklaces or bracelets. Plus, if your going to your significant others family gathering for the first time, a subtle hint of patriotic flair can grab attention for all the right reasons. If you don’t want to walk in looking like a flag, but want to incorporate these elements without going for the nautical theme, jewelry is your best friend.
As most of your know, less can be more. Funky earring can grab attention and also make excellent conversation starters. Plus these earrings are up-cycled and unique. Psst…these earrings were created by another Etsy shop called KAYEganda!
Plan on showing off your midriff with a cute bathing suit? Surprise people with a sweet patriotic dream catcher. Midnightsmojo, an Etsy shop, has it for $19.00.
