Stash your picnicking gear and a few frisbees in Madewell's oh-so-roomy navy leather tote bag.

Topshop's flag jacket is, obviously, the quintessential Fourth of July garment, but we think it has potential post-Independence Day, too, with its punk-rock, devil-may-care appeal. <a href="http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33060&storeId=13052&productId=5868288&langId=-1&categoryId=&searchTerm=flag&pageSize=20n" target="_blank">$92 at Topshop</a>.
