The United States struggled for decades to find their own identity and fashion. The people of the colonies chose not to wear elegant items from Europe as a patriotic symbol. They instead wore homespun clothing made of indigenous fabric. Today, American companies have taken a new approach to show patriotism in fashion. The classic Old Navy T-shirts and almost any item stamped with the American flag can be found in every household across the nation. Here, a tunic has the stars and stripes found on the flag printed on a body wearing a bikini. This bathing suit cover up shows the patriotism the owner has (it is also great for the 4th of July). America clearly found it’s unique identity and fashion and can be found in anyone’s closet.
