How to be patriotic and still look stylish
The 4th of July is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking of what to wear for your beach getaway and BBQ’s! Of course wearing some sort of red, white, and blue feels like the right thing to do during this time, but hey, we still want to look cute and stylish! We’ve rounded up some ideas to still stay patriotic but not look like a walking American flag.
Wear White – Add in Red or Blue Accessories
An easy way to incorporate red, white, and blue without going overboard is to start with the neutral white. Wear a white dress or white jeans and top – then add in your accessories! Blue earrings, a red bag… go crazy! Well not too crazy!

Jeans are still blue ya know!
Yeah it’s summer and jeans might not be at the top of your list, but jean shorts or even a denim skirt will work too! Use denim as your BLUE then incorporate a red or white top. It doesn’t get more American than denim!

Tie an American Flag bandana in your hair, call it a day
If you are planning to be in your bathing suit all day and don’t have an American Flag print suit handy – tie a bandana in your hair! There are so many American Flag print bandanas that you can get at your local store. Throw your hair in a ponytail or even a messy bun and tie the bandana around your hair tie. Easy breezy and still so American.
