The summer, which unofficially begins with Memorial Day and has a highlight with Independence Day, makes us want to embrace Americana fashion inspiration. We’re not talking about flag t-shirts, but a few key pieces that make your look pop with a red, white and blue color combination that is timeless and versatile.
Whether you’re the type to go all-in with a head-to-toe look or want to try out the trend with a few key pieces, the key is to look for items that make you feel great. Pick silhouettes that you normally love to wear for a night out, a day at the beach, or to a BBQ. If you’re the type that loves to be bold, make this your next color choice for a night of dressing up. This is the opportunity to update your summer wardrobe or shop your closet and then add some patriotic fashion infusion to looks that you already own.
What we love most about wearing red, white and blue is that these colors on their own are universal wardrobe staples. Blue, in particular, is a forgiving color and is practically as neutral as black. It’s a color that looks good on everyone and pairs up easily with lots of other colors. Red, while not as trendy or versatile, is a great way to add a pop of color to any outfit and make it look totally fresh. Nothing says summer like white, even if we have to carry around fabric wipes for unforeseen messes. It won’t deter most of us from wearing the season’s favorite color!
Use these colors as the basis for packing for your next trip. The mix and match of it all makes packing lighter and more fun because you will always be ready for a festive event. It’s almost guaranteed to be appropriate and très chic.
