It’s that time of year again—the time where we all gather around the BBQ with our friends and family to celebrate one of my most favorite holidays: the 4th of July!! Whether you are at the beach soaking up the sun, or having a backyard bash, you are going to want to be the best dressed person in attendance, right? Well, let’s just make it clear right now, there is a fine line between being fashionably festive versus over the top and obnoxious, and it is a line we do NOT want to cross.
Luckily for all of us, American flag’s are all the rage in the world of fashion, and when done right—they can make for a fabulously festive look. Here are some tips to make sure your flag fashion is nothing less than perfect.
+ Keep it simple. No need to over do it with an American flag top, shorts, headband and purse. If you want to wear a flag, limit it to one piece.
+ Accessorize with red, white, and blue! A great look would be to pair a simple white dress with a fabulous pair of flag platforms or even a fun printed turband.
+ Avoid the American flag bikini. I think this can often be a bit on the tacky side. Instead mix & match a white top with a blue or red bottom. It is understated, yet still patriotic!
