Every year when Independence Day rolls around I open my closet and stare hoping for something patriotic to jump out at me... as memories of past 4th of July's come back to me. (I mean waaaay back as a child). As a family we would go to our local parade, I remember proudly waving my little American flag and at everyone that marched past. Then off to our family picnic where we spent the evening running barefoot through the grass with sparklers and catching fireflies. The ending of the night was always my favorite watching the fireworks display by our local firefighters.
Anyways, back to my closet... My worries of how to dress patriotic and still look fashionable are no more! Our USA collection has everything for everyone from scarves, hats, shoes, shirts to dresses. Now I'm faced with a new dilemma, too much to wear! I LOVE this problem!!!
As tempting as it is to wear everything I own that is red, white and blue or with an American flag, I really do feel there is a right wear to put together everything. You have two ways of going about putting together your outfit. I would start with a patriotic anchor piece to base your outfit around such as our All American Girl Tee, Live Free Tank or our Southern Darlin' Tee-Grace. You can pair these with your favorite shorts, skirt or light-weight pants. I would suggest the Touch Of Lace Denim Shorts and Resort Shorts. You can't forget about our All Star Sneakers, these will add a pop of color to any outfit. Then accessorize, accesorize!
My second way of pulling together the perfect holiday outfit is to accessorize with patriotic pieces instead of having it as your main piece. One of my go-to dresses this summer is the Hi-Lo Day Dress in royal. This dress is beyond comfortable and compliments any body type. I tie in 4th of July with our Modern Day USA Scarf and finish it with a versatile pair of wedges like our Legend Has It Wedges or Slip Into Spring Wedges. If you would like to be more subtle you can go with the Boldy Go Jumpsuit or our Boldy Go Romper.
I hope this will help guide you to put together an ensemble that shows off your patriotism and is effortlessly stylish. So 'go fourth', (see what I did there) and set off some fireworks with your red, white and beautiful self and celebrate the independence of this beautiful country!!!
