When Independence Day rolls around, it’s hard to resist getting a little patriotic. There are plenty of BBQs on the agenda, and you’re bound to spot plenty of red, white, or blue swimsuits. In fact, most ladies will likely be sporting a combination of all three shades. But we have to admit — when it comes to July 4, stars and stripes are starting to feel a bit expected.
If you’re like us, you prefer to get maximum usage out of a bikini, so why not invest in a suit that’s got the right color scheme but feels fresh? Read on for 24 different styles that are flattering, eye-catching with quirky prints, and on point for the holiday. You’ll love them so much, you’ll want to wear them when the weekend ends, too. And you totally can.
