HOW WE WEAR IT: FOURTH OF JULY

Screen Shot 2013-07-01 at 1.34.35 PM

On Thursday, we celebrate America’s Independence, which usually includes a trip to the beach, a BBQ, and a rooftop to check out the fireworks. While the forecast says there’s a chance of a thunderstorm for NYC, we’re still hoping for a warm, sunny day and a clear night for this year’s Fourth of July. In anticipation of the holiday, we’re breaking out some of our summer favorites to show you how we wear it on America’s birthday.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

It’s the First Amendment to the US Constitution, and we’re not taking it for granted. Say what’s on your mind with one of our A.OK slogan tees, or let an image do the talking with our OAK + TOM BIANCHI tees and tanks.

THE RIGHT TO BARE SIDES

Whether you’re hitting the beach, a barbecue, a rooftop, or all three, while you’re running around NYC on The Fourth, you’ll want to make sure you’re staying cool in the summer heat on this traditionally warm holiday.

FOOT SOLDIER

Again, the Fourth of July can take you from the beach to a rooftop in the span of an afternoon, and both of those settings suit sandals perfectly.

STRIPES AND STRIPES

Just because you aren’t decked out in American Flag print, doesn’t mean you can’t show some USA pride this July 4th. Take a subtler approach to flag appreciation with one of our striped styles.

A CHANCE OF SUN

Despite warnings of a thunderstorm, we’re still hopeful Fourth of July ’13 will be a sunny one. While we’ll definitely be up all night watching fireworks, during the day we’ll make sure to have at least one pair of sunglasses on hand.

BLESS THE U.S.A.

Finally, as Americans continue fighting for our rights, living in a country that allows us to do so is definitely something to be thankful for.
