Looking for some fashionable ways to show your patriotism this 4th of July? Spark your own fireworks with these style tips:
1. Pledge Allegiance to Patterns
Take a cue from our flag and flaunt stars and stripes (or my favorite, polka dots)! From color-blocked styles to classic sailor stripes to actual American-flag-inspired pieces, patterns can make your look pop!
2. Spangle Yourself With Colorful Accessories
Shoes, belts, scarves, bags, and statement necklaces are an easy way to work red, white, and blue into your look.
3. Play With Shades and Symbols
Red, white, and blue may be the textbook 4th of July colors, but why not expand the spectrum? Throw in some stars and/or stripes to complete the look. Turquoise and coral are just as festive, perfect for summer, and will stand out at any parade, cookout or beach celebration.
4. Keep It Cool With Basics
Classic blue jeans, crisp white cotton, flirty red dresses—these are just a few examples of basics you might already have that make a festive foundation for an Independence Day outfit.
Use the tips above to create your look. I’ve taken care of what you will wear so go ahead and focus on spending time with family and friends.
