If you’re planning a big Fourth of July celebration, you need a few basics: plenty of food for the grill, a few coolers full of ice-cold beverages, and the right patriotic attire. That’s where we come in with these essential Independence Day shirts for women.
The Fourth of July – also known as Independence Day in the United States – is a federal holiday, but oddly enough that only began in 1941. Still, the celebration dates back to the original July 4, 1776, when the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence. You can adopt this kimono-style blouse for your festivities. It’s 95 percent polyester and machine washable. Wear it over a tank top or shorts. It’s available is sizes S to 3XL.

John Adams, one of the leading proponents of America’s independence push, actually refused to speak at July 4th celebrations. It turns out Adams believed July 2nd should be the day that’s recognized as the holiday because that’s the date the declaration was actually voted upon. No word, of course, of what he’d think about this stars-and-stripes summer top for women. It’s made from polyester, spandex and rayon. Designed to be elastic and therefore stretchable, it’s breathable and comfortable to wear.

Independence Day was a cause for celebration with the Continental Army. Why? Because to mark its second anniversary in 1778, Gen. George Washington issued double rations of rum to all his soldiers. That’s worthy of a salute. So is this, a more modern take on a flag design. It’s mesh so you’ll want to line dry it. It features a crew neck, cold shoulder and bell sleeves that are three-quarters in length.

These days, Washington D.C. is a prime spot for celebrating the Fourth of July. Visitors have a multitude of options for witnessing the extravagant fireworks displays set against the nation’s most famous landmarks. If you can’t attend in person, tune in to PBS to watch “A Capitol Fourth,” a star-studded concert that concludes when 20 cameras positioned around the district capture all the booms and bangs. Wherever you are, consider donning this distressed-look top made with polyester and spandex.

If you’re in Florida for the Fourth of July, the state’s beaches are often the best place to catch fireworks celebrations. Be sure to check your city’s website ahead of time because some towns choose to celebrate a day early. If you’re lucky, you can find a spot on the shore to see other cities’ fireworks off in the distance. We saved this shirt for last because it gave us a good laugh. The material is extremely soft thanks to a blend of polyester, cotton and rayon.
