Admit it: We all have that one über patriotic clothing item we leave lonely and untouched in our closets—only to dust off once Fourth of July festivities roll around each year (our deepest apologies to you, knit American flag sweater). Same goes for full-on red-white-and-blue ensembles complete with a “Party Like It's 1776” graphic tee—you just can’t wear that outfit again in, say, October.

If you want to wear something a little more subtle this year, then look no further. Here, three Fourth of July outfits that aren’t so on-the-nose.
1. LOOK ONE
In this look, you might've hit up the local flower market, newest brunch spot, or maybe a Fourth of July BBQ. Who knows?
2. LOOK TWO
Get yourself a bodysuit that can do both—this one from Panarea Couture doubles as both a layering piece and swimsuit so you can go from the pool to dinner and back.
