An inspiration guide to elevated red, white & blue style
There is no shortage of American flag-emblazoned garb in the States. Despite the painful elimination of USA from the World Cup yesterday, we will always have one thing to celebrate: freedom. Let it ring this holiday weekend with classic Americana—hot dogs, water slides, apple pie, fireworks—and maybe leave the repurposing of flags into dresses to the college gals. Try these ideas on for a more grown-up iteration of the star-spangled banner.
Casual Cool Blue | Gal Meets Glam
A denim jacket and carefree stripes tone down lace shorts to make them barbecue-appropriate.
Posh Patriot | Wendy’s Lookbook
A tweed jacket or a tailored blazer in a bright red or blue will make you an automatic style stand-out.
In the Details | They All Hate Us
A pop of leopard on the 4th adds a fun mix to the palette and is unexpectedly appropriate.
Pop Culture | Lovely Pepa
Channel your inner Dorothy. Seek inspiration from the picnic. Gingham is an American classic that evokes childhood summers.
Creative License | Atlantic-Pacific
Let your creativity run wild with mixed prints and a daring take on red, white, and blue.
Give Back | A House in the Hills
A white and red (or blue) striped dress is perfect for the occasion but pretty enough to wear all summer long.
Monochrome | Sincerely, Jules
Who says you need to wear all three? Be bold in one of our national colors.
