Stars and Stripes: Our Independence Day Fashion Selects

July 4th is fast approaching and there's never been a better excuse to start stocking up on all the trendy stars 'n' stripes apparel that've been tempting us all year long.

Denim shorts, striped beach bags, star-print silk button-ups -- now's the time to invest, ladies. While a red, white, and blue striped blouse may have seemed like an irrational purchase a few months ago, now you have not one, but two themed holidays to sport it on. After all, nothing says "proud to be an American" like a pair of flag-themed daisy dukes.

Consider it your patriotic duty and rep your American flag pride with one of our stylish selects. Click through the gallery to shop them now!
