Independence Day is coming, which means the countdown is on for the perfect look that balances patriotic with pretty. Themed July fourth dressing is fun, but that doesn’t mean you need to look like the love child of Betsy Ross and Kid Rock. You want something chic and fun, with a simultaneous nod to the holiday. Luckily, fashion labels like Ammara (made in the USA, of course) are finally giving us something super stylish to work with.
New York-based designer Ammara Yaqub focuses solely on creating amazing tops — the type that instantly make an outfit. And just in time for this Fourth of July, she’s released three options in a patriotic color palette that are on point — and on trend. Think of them as three chic AF ways to say, “Happy Birthday, America.” “I love being an American and this collection is an ode to the great country we live in,” says Yaqub. Taking inspiration from her own experience as a Muslim immigrant in the US, Yaqub set out to create a collection of tops that pays tribute to each individual’s own version of America, and well, we think she nailed it.
The Simone ($395) is a cropped A-line top made of custom, hand-cut, macrame lace stars. It’s a total statement maker and we are here. For. It. Just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit toned down for balance.
The Walker ($350) is a flirty-femme take on stripes. You’ll hit the ruffle trend, the off-the-shoulder thing, and Americana, all at once. Winning.
The Anouk ($275) is the perfect floaty tank you’ll wear to every barbecue this holiday weekend — and all summer long. (Plus, its super breezy shape means you can eat a few extra burgers and still have room to grow.)
Whichever top is your favorite, there’s no denying you’ll be the picture of holiday hotness. So take your pick; the choice is yours — and that’s about as American as it gets.
