Her Source’s Independence Day Party Kit

Azealia Banks

Although Memorial Day Weekend has long been considered the unofficial kickoff to our favorite season, let’s face it … the 4th of July is the summer holiday that we all really sweat. That’s why it’s imperative that we – and by we I mean the ladies – come correct to our Independence Day festivities. With the party kit the HerSource editors have assembled, you’ll have it goin’ on from dusk til dawn.

If you’re looking to start your 4th off at the beach or poolside, the only way to do it is while donning a star-spangled bikini. If you’re having trouble getting a hold of Azealia Banks to borrow hers, fret not…your local Target has just what you’re looking for. See the American flag bikini available through their Xhilaration brand below.
