A Salute to Fashion

When it comes to style and the holidays, there are a lot of things I am against and they all center around a wardrobe that depicts characters, sayings or scenes relative to that holiday… a blinking sweater featuring a dancing Rudolph, a pair of ghostly goblins dangling from your ears, or even a vision of the first Thanksgiving on a t-shirt. However, what I am certainly not against, is wearing any sort of American flag anywhere in your outfit to celebrate the 4th of July. Whether it be a flag bikini at the beach or a star spangled sweater at brunch, showing your American pride is always fashionable.  Here are a few ideas for some festive fashion when going to a family BBQ or fireworks.

Choose to be bold and wear a flag tank, or go for a more subtle approach and wear a solid red, white, or blue and accessorize with the other colors… maybe even a red lip! The great thing about investing in 4th of July attire is that the colors translate very well into a nautical look and showing your American pride has no season so most items can be worn all year round. If all else fails for the family BBQ, wear your favorite pair of denim shorts, nothing says American like worn in jeans.

Feeling like you want to celebrate early and wear our nation’s colors to work on the 3rd? Here are a few ideas:
