FASHION: Stars And Stripes


Break out every red, white and blue item in your closet because it is that time of year again! The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. I think the combination of pool party BBQs and fabulous firework displays brings out the patriotic pride in everyone. 


There are so many different ways to truly embrace your independence through fashion this Independence Day. Many girls take full advantage of the DIY American flag jean shorts. If you can master it, go for it! That is a perfect casual look for this holiday. They would look lovely paired with a simple white tee and a hint of red in your purse or shoes.


Depending on what event your attending this Fourth of July, you might want to dress things up a bit. This photo is an absolutely adorable way to do so. Mixing prints is definitely a standout trend this season, so why not give it a shot for the upcoming festive events!  Stripes, polka dots and anchors? How many prints are you willing to incorporate? 


Here is another casual, but chic outfit worth rocking this Fourth of July. Stars and stripes shorts and a timeless, graphic tee, could it get more American than this? Add a bandana on your head and you are set for the occasion. An alternative great look would be wearing a denim vest with a navy blue, striped tee and pair of red or white, cutoff shorts. There are so many different variations of outfits to wear for this holiday, so do not be afraid to experiment! 


Another great look is pairing red, cutoff denim shorts with an off-white crop top and a comfy, navy striped cardigan to add some patriotic flare. Wearing brown or nude accessories like a purse and shoes will add to your look this Fourth! This ensemble would be appropriate for playing countless games at a daytime party and adding the cardigan for nighttime fireworks. You want to represent your American pride while still looking effortlessly chic, so you’re ready to win every game of balloon toss possible!
