By the time late June rolls around, the season is in full swing — summer Fridays have kicked in, sunscreen has been slathered, and Instagrammable pool floats have been purchased. Plus, one of the most quintessential summer moments is right around the corner: Independence Day. And if you'll be enjoying it anywhere near water or even just a lounge chair, a patriotic Fourth of July swimsuit makes the celebrations even more fun.
Even though the Fourth of July lands on a Tuesday in 2017 (which sort of sucks for most people), a mid-week holiday leaves two weekends for potential Independence Day events. Sunny side up, right? And whether your plans include pool days, barbecues, or an outdoor getaway, there's always an opportunity to rock a patriotic swimsuit (even if it's with your favorite pair of distressed jean shorts and a loose white tank).
And from one-piece swimsuits to bikinis, there are endless ways to rock the red, white, and blue (or any combination of the three). Here are 23 to order right now, and just in time. Break one of these all-American swimsuits out for the Fourth of July, but keep them in your rotation all summer long — and save it for next summer, too.
