The 4th of July is a time for celebration, laughs, and non-stop spreading of love with family and friends. With the kids being out of school for the summer, using a fun holiday as a way to show off their fresh style is a great way to hear the chorus of "Awwws." And one way parents show off their kids' inventive style is through social media — Instagram in particular. So if you need a little inspiration for your tot's Independence Day ensemble, searching for kids 4th of July outfits on Instagram will make them a social media star (with lots of stripes.)

When I was a kid, I remember my mom would head to Old Navy every Fourth of July and pick up the $5 red, white, and blue flag T-shirts for my siblings and I to wear wherever we went. Though I'm still not sure what it was about those shirts that made me feel extra patriotic, it's just a reminder of how dressing in those colors on that day made an impact on the day. Now when I see parents dress their kids for the occasion, I'll always melt on the inside.

If the flag t-shirts are something you're looking to retire this year, these kids 4th of July outfits on Instagram will serve as the perfect source of inspiration for your festivities.
