Cute July Fourth Gear That Doesn't Require Betsy Ross's Skills

If you like themes, but not enough to wear head to toe American flag prints this weekend, we get it. Luckily, red, white and blue clothing was huge this year – in the form of the nautical trend – so you shop that look for subtle, yet still patriotic 4th of July and Labor Day outfits.

If the weather is nice this weekend (fingers crossed) you will need an oversize hat; go for a fun, themed one like this Forever 21 Patriotic Floppy hat ($9.80).

Aviators are a classic American sunglass style; we love these MICHAEL Michael Kors “Kauai” Aviator Sunglasses ($63, down from $90) in red – they are perfect for 4th of July, Memorial Day, and beyond.

If you already have blue and red nautical tanks and tees this is the perfect occasion to re-wear them. If not, stock up on these super cheap Gap Printed slub tanks ($9.99, down from $16.50).

This Tie-dyed stripe elongated triangle top ($17.99, down from $32.50) and bottom ($17.99, down from $32.50) hits two of our favorite summer trends: tie-dye and nautical.

The playful silhouette and thin stripes of this Delias Piper Striped skirt ($34.50) make it a fun summer piece. Pair it with a white or red tank for the perfect patriotic outfit.
