STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stars and Stripes Forever!

It’s that time of the year for all you stylish readers to break out your red, white, and blue! From barbeques to parades, this is your chance to use the freedom our forefathers fought for and pick out a patriotic outfit! My suggestion is follow this Fashionista’s American inspired outfit. Navy and white stripes are not only stylish, but are one the hot trends for the season. This Fashionista paired her striped dress with red lips and nude wedge sandals. I found the red lipstick a clever way to tie in all three colors. She also was carrying a red clutch which popped against the stripped background. As for the nude wedges, what’s not to love! They are ultra chic and the nude color helps elongates her legs. This outfit is perfect for the 4th of July; however, it’s not limited to this one event. Try this look at a Sunday brunch or a day shopping with friends.

Another way to dress up a red, white, and blue ensemble is with the right accessory. I was inspired by Shopbop’s American Life Lookbook. They pair American styled outfits with star accessories. They have an assortment of necklaces and bracelets with stars that would complement any patriotic outfit. If stars aren’t your thing you could do a simple gold bracelet.
