Memorial Day and July 4th will be here before you know it. For us, that means parades, picnics, cookouts, and family events. Some years, I created my own patriotic shirt by sponge painting or sewing strips of fabric.
This year, I just cannot seem to find the time to be that crafty and may resort to buying a shirt for our family cookout instead.
Best Patriotic Tops
There are a number of different types of patriotic shirts you can find from the standard white shirt with an American Flag to something a bit more subtle. Realistically, you can always pair your favorite blue jeans with a classic white tee and a red bandana if you don’t want to add something new to your wardrobe.
If you’re like me and don’t happen to have a white tee and a red bandana, a few of these ideas may work for you instead:
Women’s American flag hoodie
For those of us in the north, this women’s American flag sweater is the perfect choice for a cooler Memorial Day or an evening event. It’s perfect to bring along for tailgating parties or even firework displays.
Women’s Patriotic T-Shirts
This off-the-shoulder butterfly t-shirt has a patriotic design that is stylish and unique. It could easily be dressed up with pants or dressed down with jeans. It’s a bit dressier than your average t-shirt but still comfortable.
Ladies Patriotic Tops
This is by far one of my favorite ladies’ patriotic tops. It’s got just a little bit of sass to it and is perfect to show off at a barbecue or parade. Love this American girl skull with a messy bun.
Or, you may prefer this one stead.
This is a subtle blue and red floral print patriotic top that could easily be paired with a red scarf and white jeans. It’s not so patriotic that you couldn’t easily wear it for the rest of the year. It’s also semi-fitted so it flatters your figure without being so tight that it shows off those spots you’d rather not show off.
Women’s faded American flag top – I love the distressed look. And, this faded American flag top is ideal for those expecting hot summer weather. You can pair this shirt with jeans, capris or shorts. If it’s cool out, you can always wear a red, white, or blue sweater over it and then remove it as the temperature warms up.
Sequined patriotic women’s top – If you want something a bit dressier, this sequined Patriotic women’s top may be just the answer. This sequinned top is still casual enough to work with a pair of blue jeans. But, it could be dressed up to wear with navy slacks or a denim skirt as well.
All Over American Flag Patriotic Tunic Dress – If you’d rather not wear pants and a top, you can always opt for a patriotic tunic dress. This cut will suit just about any figure while still being cool and comfortable.
Patriotic tops with flags
Remember that real American flags should never be worn as clothing or draped over you. If you want patriotic tops with a flag on it, please make one yourself using fabric paint or strips of fabric. Never alter an American flag into a shirt or any other article of clothing.
