From Carter’s to Etsy, apparel retailers are nearing peak red, white, and blue as the summer holiday approaches. But like any big event, you can bet these cute outfits are going to sell out fast.

That way when July 4 dawns, you can slather your kids with sunscreen and quickly get them kitted out for the parade, then enjoy the rest of the day’s festivities without kicking yourself for not finding any holiday-appropriate wear.

Plus, your children will love feeling a part of the big event as they race through the yard with sparklers singing “God Bless America” in their finest threads. While you’re thinking about it, throw in a backup outfit at check-out too. With all the ketchup and ice cream, your all-American fam might need a costume change to live their best Independence Day.
