Stumped on What to Wear This 4th of July? Cute & Patriotic Is Possible!

You don’t need to wear an American flag to be patriotic this 4th.

Fourth of July is just around the corner kids, and in addition to making plans—BBQs! Parades! Fireworks!—we also need to be spending a bit of time devising our outfits. Yes, really. Because while perfecting your family’s coleslaw recipe and crafting a playlist is important, so is looking SUPER cute all day long. And just because it’s Independence Day, doesn’t mean you have to resort to kitshy (read: ugly) fashions.

Below we’ve rounded up 15 items that will get you from the pool, to your hometown parade and launch you right into the night’s bonfire on the beach—with nary a bandana in sight. Full disclosure: We did include one hilarious patriotic onesie, because, um, how could we not?

But the most important thing of all, of course, is to be safe and have a great holiday!
