How to look chic while sporting patriotic colors

Red White and Blue

Americana Vibes

Sweet summertime. The greatest time of year, right?

This summer may look and feel quite different (hello, COVID), but nevertheless we are in a summer state of mind. Indeed, warm, sunny weather makes me happy. So, that’s reason enough to embrace the season.

What is it about the entire summer season that feels very Americana, if you will? First, Memorial Day ushers in the season, followed by the Fourth of July, and finally, Labor Day unofficially closes the season. So, throughout the summer months, I’m feeling the preppy patriotic vibes! There are so many chances to wear our flag’s colors. In fact, you don’t even need a holiday for an excuse; red, white, and blue can (and should!) be worn all summer long.

The key to wearing red, white, and blue in a chic manner?

Less literal, more figurative.

Sure – we love the American flag. But we don’t want to be mistaken for one. Oftentimes people will shy away from wearing patriotic colors in fear of looking overtly like our nation’s flag. And that’s understandably so because oh so quickly can a red, white, and blue ensemble start resembling the Old Glory.

However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wear all three colors together. Because all three colors together can look equal parts fun, chic, and ever so stylish. You just don’t necessarily want to wear red striped pants with a blue and white star t-shirt. But mixing and matching different prints, patterns, and shades of the colors look beautiful together as you can see below!
