Cookouts, family, friends, sun and fun—The 4th of July is a favorite summer holiday of mine. There’s nothing like gathering together and taking a break from all of the summer chaos. As you plan your outings, check out some lovely American pride outfits for your festivities.

Spending your day at by the pool? Grab your American themed bikini and you will be good to go. If you don’t happen to have a flag suit, then mix and match red or blue tops with white bottoms. The jean shorts below are an easy DIY project. You can find the instructions on the Free People blog. Throw a crochet top over your suit for your arrival look. Tie your look together with the perfect summer hairdo .
