This summer we’re all about celebrating with our favorite patriotic fashion. Despite popular opinion, wearing head-to-toe stars and stripes can feel fresh and fun.
However, fresh and fun can a take a sharp turn into dated and cheesy. Here, we’ve put together some of our favorite looks to help you keep your Americana game on trend. Plus, quick styling tips on how to transition these looks beyond the holiday weekend.
Salute With a Kiss
The go-to summer staple for ease and comfort, this royal blue maxi dress flirts along the Americana line with a simple pucker and gives some wiggle room for statement pieces like a themed sun hat and mesh earrings.
Style Tip: Swap out the themed sun hat and earrings for a crisp white, and pair with your favorite neutral wedges or sandals for a complete look.
Red, White And Swag
For a non-literal approach show off your colors in a paint splatter razor tee and denim moto shorts. Don’t forget the bling!
Style Tip: With your stars and stripes limited to top gear and slides your clothes become the focal point. If you want to scale back further then opt for either the hat or slides, but not both.
We ❤ Americana
Let your bodysuit do the talking with denim cutoff shorts and a festive pair of canvas kicks.
Style Tip: Leave the sneakers at home and switch it up with knee-high gladiator sandals.
Fringe With Feeling (girls look, right)
Add some movement (and breeze) to a high-waist denim shorts look with a fringe tank that shines bright with metallic star deets.
Styling Tip: Replace the patriotic pouch for something more practical like a solid mini backpack and instead of a drop earring go for a pair of silver rhinestone studs.
Game. Set. Match (boys look, left)
If you decide to sport an allover stars and stripe printed top and bottom look then aim for a matching set. Go beyond the basic print with a curved hem and subtle paint splatter detail.
Styling Tip: Try pairing the top with white denim moto shorts or pair the bottoms with a simple white graphic tee for an everyday feel.
