Red, White & Blue Done Right

Mom Style Lab / Red, White, and Blue Done Right

The Fourth of July brings out patriotism and pride in our country like no other holiday. Fireworks, picnics, parades, hot dogs, flags and red, white & blue all say “I’m proud to be an American!” We love it. The Fourth can also prompt some pretty cheesy fashion. No muscle tees with flags, please. Or a striped top with star-print shorts. MSL has tips on how to dress in a way that shows your patriotism without looking over the top. And good news, we found a ton of pieces on sale!

Use denim as the base for your look, then add red as an accent color.

Stripes are chic and in the form of a shift dress, can be paired with sneakers or strappy sandals.

When wearing “red, white & blue” keep one color as your primary base and use the other two as accents via accessories.

Star-spangled pieces can be cute, just not all over. Keep the stars to one piece.
