It is the date that every American knows by heart and usually involves a party or get together. We are talking about Independence Day, the 4th July, the day that commemorates the day the US gained independence from the British Empire.
For many people this is the perfect excuse to have friends and family around and have a great time. This usually means dressing up in colours that represent the flag, or clothing items that bear the stars and stripes.
We have searched the internet to showcase some great patriotic outfits:
