It’s that time of year again to celebrate the great USA. And with the American team doing so well in the World Cup, it’s a great time to celebrate being an American. Family and friends are brought together by hot dogs, the outdoors, fireworks and, unfortunately, some awful fashion decisions. No worries though, I’ve got some “healthy alternatives” that are safe to celebrate in while appreciating the great USA.
I must admit, I am not a big fan of the red, whites and blues. Just because you’re celebrating a country does NOT mean you should look like a flag. Our pictured Fashionista is wearing a great, alternative look to the “traditional” Independence Day attire. When I saw her baby doll tee, I immediately thought of one thing: fireworks. The bright colors and cool designs are a trendy way to show love for your country. She tops the look off with a three quarter tee and some leggings, a great way to make sure you’re comfortable just in case your festivities drag into the cool summer nights.
Hint: This Fourth of July, make as big as a splash as those bright fireworks at the party. Try wearing a bright summer dress or tunic that’ll shine with those fireworks like this one from Free People. And there’s no shame in having a little bit of patriotic color, as long as you portion control. Try to top off the look with some cool red white or blue accessories like these red sunglasses from Ray Ban.
