For Fashion's Sake: Stars & Stripes

Happy Independence Day, America!

As we celebrate our freedom from Britain's tyranny, let us all consider ourselves free from making questionable fashion choices in the name of patriotism.

I'm talking the Stars & Stripes.

Being a native Philadelphian, I have seen more than my fair share of gaudy, touristy ensembles, rife with huge flag decals or designs. And I get it. It's the Fourth of July, and you're visiting the Liberty Bell. You're practically obligated to don a flag-emblazoned fanny pack.

But there are ways to rock the Stars & Stripes without forsaking your style. Here are a few of my favorites from around the web:

The perfect summer tote with stars and stripes to boot.

From WonderMolly via Amazon,

Love this faded tank. And its waist-baring style will keep you cool.

Where to buy:

I also like this one, similar feel with a longer hemline.

Where to buy:

These brass-plate star earrings deserve a gold one of their own. Also available in silver-plate.

Where to Buy:

This bow bandeau is too cute! I would pair it with a low-rise jean or ankle-skimming skirt.  

From Ci Ci Hot:

Denim cutoffs + Stars and Stripes = The right answer. 

From LivMod

Where to buy:

And finally, my favorite patriotic look. The cropped tank and breezy skirt are ideal for the summer season, and the stars and stripes are in full stylish effect. (The skirt seems available only in black, sadly.)

Where to buy (skirt):

I hope you've enjoyed this Independence Day parade of patriotic fashion. Have a blessed, safe holiday!
