This July, we're seeking out ways to beat the heat, celebrate Summer, and make our chosen seasonal uniform of bikini-top-and-cutoffs acceptable attire anywhere. (With BBQs, pool parties, and holiday weekends at the beach, that can't be a pipe dream, can it?) But, it's not just Fourth of July fireworks that have us excited. We've rounded up a midsummer shopping list that will keep you looking your best.
From patriotic staples that will look stylish well after Independence Day to flat sandals that are a still-comfortable antidote to flip-flops, we've hand-selected an assortment of Summer essentials. Shop all of our editors' July must-have style items here, in the gallery.
