Stars, stripes and flag motifs are popular every July.
Fashion. Accessories. Home decor and entertaining. Nothing, it seems, can escape a wave of red, white and blue.
The theme is expected to be even more prominent throughout the summer because of the Olympics set for Aug. 5 21 in Rio de Janeiro. Team USA outfits for the closing ceremony are all American, classic Polo Ralph Lauren. Red, white and blue to the max.
But first up are Fourth of July celebrations and the annual show of patriotic ensembles and accessories. Sun Sport.
“Some go all out with stars and stripes, while others choose to pull pieces from their closet that can be worn any day of the year and put their own unique twist on it for our nation’s birthday. I personally choose to mix a bit of both.”
there’s plenty from which to choose that will go from a holiday backyard party to a barbecue to an evening filled with fireworks.
“The Fourth of July is all about being patriotic and proud of the red, white and blue,” said Crystal Bland, owner of Milo Lily boutique.
“While stars and stripes are a surefire way to show you’re festive, getting star spangled isn’t the only way to celebrate. Try taking the less literal approach by only pairing two of the colors, like classic blue and white. To top off your look, add a bold accessory like a patriotic scarf or red handbag, and you are set for the fireworks display.”
A cool and comfortable outfit is as easy as a red off the shoulder top one of summer’s hottest looks with white shorts. Consider a navy and white striped tank dress. Play up a white T shirt with a flag themed scarf.
