It’s the 4th of July! Lucky for us, we’re one of the few nations in the world that feels comfortable enough to wear our national flag. So what are you going to wear tomorrow? Which body part should you bedeck with stars and stripes? Check out the Encyclopedia of Music’s 4th of July Fashion Gallery for ideas from music celebs below.
1. Full-body flag
Ladies (or gentlemen) you’ll be ready to hit the town when the fireworks are over tomorrow night in this silky and tight American flag dress that Katy Perry is rocking. Notice how when you wave, the flag waves with you.
2. Full-body jumpsuit
Don’t hold back! For those of you not confident enough to rock the bangin’ dress, zip yourself into Justin Bieber’s jumpsuit (make sure he’s not in it first). This is a better option for those cooler summer nights, so if you’re planning on grilling or mingling with the crowd, keep looking.
3. Booty shorts
Perfect for a 4th of July BBQ, squeeze into these all-American flag denim shorts! Rihanna completes her outfit with a bikini top for impromptu water fun! Guys, if you’ve got the gams for it, you might be able to pull these off (I mean, on) as well.
4. American flag pants
Wiz Khalifa pulls off the denim American flag pants with style! Guys, please avoid the Rex-kwando style, as shown on the right. These are not acceptable.
5. Classic tshirt
Simple. Basic. Pair with traditional blue jeans, or white denim in futile attempts to stay cooler than everyone around you. Meek Mil has more of a relaxed gangster look going on with light gray sweatpants.
Normally, American flag sweaters are reserved for adorable retired couples who fear they might get chilly watching the fireworks. Keep in mind this is knitted sweater Lana Del Rey has on, definitely not a sweatshirt with a press-on flag.
What kind of shoes do you wear on the 4th of July? Well Katy Perry strutted her Patriotic pride in these babies along with the American flag dress, but we won’t call you anti-American if you decide on just the shoes.
Perhaps your style is more comfort-driven. These Gola American flag sneakers are your game. Perfect for running, jumping, climbing trees, and dancing.
Happy Fashion Hunting and Happy 4th of July from FDRMX!
