The July 4 long weekend is here. What are you wearing? If you want to show your love for your country, sport something red, white and blue. But, if you don’t want your outfit screaming the US flag, there are various ways to do it.
1. Instead of the obvious print – red and white stripes, go for the opposite. Wear blue and white stripes which not only combines the two main colors of the US flag but also shouts summer and a nautical theme! Not only are you showing your patriotism but your also wearing a hot trend for the hottest months of the year!
2. Since I’m already wearing a blue and white striped top, the obvious color to go for the bottoms would be red, right? Well, again, why not do the unexpected? You don’t want to be a walking flag, do you? So instead, I’m only adding a hint of red by wearing a tank top beneath the blue and white striped top. To add dimension, choose a different neckline or cut at the back. That’s why I chose a racer back and a regular tank top. And for the bottom, I chose a neutral shade that won’t stand out that much. I chose soft grey harem pants that make this outfit cool and unexpected.
3. Lastly, accessorize. Without the accessories I’m wearing, this outfit will be totally blah – like I just got up from bed. But with multiple gold necklaces and multiple bangles, matched with gold sandals, the perfect hat to tote this summer and a statement purse, you’re on your way to a 4th of July picnic looking cool and patriotic at the same time!
