Each holiday gives us Fashionistas a reason to go out and purchase a new outfit to show off. The Fourth of July in particular begs us to come clad in our country's red, white and blue stars and stripes. In many years past, however, the passing of Independence Day means locking up our patriotic pieces until next year. This year is different. American flag inspired clothing is here to stay and with the upcoming Olympics there is yet more opportunity to wear your pride.

This Fashionista shows off both her American and Greek pride with this loose fitting tank paired simply with white shorts, sandals and an oversized brown purse. Although this particular shirt is not available to the masses, those wishing to jump in on this trend have many other options, and they don't just stop with shirts. Stores like LF, American Apparel and Brandy Melville have a huge variety of items (including an American flag print scarf!). I am especially in love with these American flag shorts available at Top Shop. These striped high top converse would make a funky addition to your shoe wardrobe.

While this Fashionista's red shirt is saturated and bright, I am especially drawn to the items with a vintage look. Distressed pieces are the perfect finds for incorporating this trend into your summer 2012 collection. Matching a great denim vest or high waisted denim shorts is the perfect way to complete the outfit. This is a perfect carefree look so have fun, and have pride!
