Nothing is more classic than red, white and blue.
It is a chic color combination that just oozes summer style and sophistication.
4th of July is right around the corner, with all the BBQs, firework events and pool parties you are probably itching to get your red, white and blue on.
I’m not saying there is anything wrong with showing some patriotic flair but before you bust out that American Flag t-shirt or your puffy paints and glitter take a deep breath and remember you don’t want to look like Betsy Ross styled you.
To ensure that 4th of July look will still be stylish on July 5th keep in mind these 3 simple tips when creating your independence day ensemble:
- Use the 60%,30%, 10% rule. 60% of the look in one color, 30% in another and 10% in the third which gives you that “pop” of color.
- Prints. If you wear stripes combine them with a solid or a print that ISN”T stars like gingham, plaids or polka dots.
- Play with the shades. Opt for cream or off-white over stark white. Try mixing in lighter shades of blue. It will create a softer look that still gets the point across without being to “flaggy”.
