Every time July 4 comes around, I’m at a loss for what to wear. I always picture american flag printed pieces with stars everywhere. But the truth is, showing your red, white & blue pride can be done tastefully. There are just a few tips to achieve a classic Americana look.

1. Use one color as your main focus & the other two as accents. Having an even amount of red, white and blue is a little too much and can look like you’re trying too hard. Try incorporating red with some bold lipstick!

2. Avoid stars. They’re super cliche and can look tacky very easily. Just avoid them all together to stay safe!

3. Dress for the occasion. Don’t get too wrapped up in wearing the right colors that you forget where you’re going. It’s more important to be comfortable than to wear certain colors.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Most of all, have fun! This holiday is a great time to take a break from work and do what you love, whether that be partying with friends or relaxing at home with loved ones. Happy Independence Day!

What will you be wearing this year & how will you be celebrating?
