Tomorrow looks like another scorcher with temperatures above 90 degrees. Shield your skin from the harsh rays in style with Frederica Morretti's chic black and white sunhat. <a href="" target="_blank">$145 at Creatures of Comfort</a>.
Hot days call for—you guessed it—hot pants, and these flag-print denims are a cheeky summertime staple (and still look fly post-Independence Day, we might add). <a href="" target="_blank">$68 at Topshop</a>.
Madras plaid is a summertime staple, and Gap's latest button-down in red, white, and a smattering of blue hues feels just right for picnicking in the park on Independence Day. <a href="" target="_blank">$49.95 at Gap</a>.
Add a patriotic pop to your Fourth ensemble with J.Crew's silky stripe "Gondola" top, which we envision styled with a pleated navy skirt and preppy white espadrilles. <a href="" target="_blank">$98 at Net-a-Porter</a>.
You'll likely be somewhere near a body of water if you're enjoying fireworks tomorrow, so why not throw a nautical reference or two into your Fourth of July outfit? This simple knot bracelet from Etsy seller Junghwa goes with practically anything in your closet. <a href="" target="_blank">$15 at Etsy</a>.
Gap's easy breezy chinos can be cuffed short or long, and easily add a bright pop of cobalt blue to any Fourth of July ensemble. <a href="" target="_blank">$34 at Gap</a>.
Stash your picnicking gear and a few frisbees in Madewell's oh-so-roomy navy leather tote bag. And if you really want to drive home the "Happy Fourth!" feel, we recommend tying a bright red bandana around the handle. <a href="" target="_blank">$168 at Madewell</a>.
Creatures of Comfort
Pair Laura Urbinati's simple scarlet swimsuit with a sassy straw fedora and chambray cover-up for a Fourth of July look that's equally suited to a day by the pool or beach. <a href="" target="_blank">$242 at Creatures of Comfort</a>.
Is red, white and blue not really your palette? Skip the flag colors and opt instead for a crisp white look like this lacy Madewell sundress, which is practically begging for a pair of leathery gladiator sandals and a stack of mixed-up bangles. <a href="" target="_blank">$158 at Madewell</a>.
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="" target="_blank">$92 at Topshop</a>.
Urban Outfitters
If "Independence" for you means freedom to float around a swimming pool toting some kind of fruity cocktail, then by all means invest in one of Urban Outfitters' flag-patterned pool floats. <a href="" target="_blank">$12 at Urban Outfitters</a>.
Keep those American dollars in a very American carrying case with flag-print canvas clutch from Totem Salvaged that features a cool suede closure and beaded tassels. <a href="" target="_blank">$275 at Net-a-Porter</a>.
Upgrade your beach bum essentials for the Fourth with a comfy Turkish towel in a patriotic navy stripe from Etsy seller Bathstyle.
