There are a ton of super cute flag clothes, shoes and accessories that are perfect to wear on July 4th. But personally, I find it a little cheesy to rock the Stars & Stripes. Okay, maybe you wear a Santa hat on Christmas, but do you put on ears for Groundhog Day? Or dress as a ballot on Election Day? If you do, stop reading now because there’s no way I can convince you to not wear a flag.
We already know it’s the holiday. No one needs a reminder via your shirt or skirt or bathing suit. You can still be festive, and by all means, please do! I will definitely be wearing red, white and blue come next Friday, but you will not see a flag on me. Here’s how it’s done:
1) Don’t wear anything with an American flag on it. You know all those memes that are like, “How to get a bikini-body? Put a bikini on your body.” Well, this is the complete opposite of that. You should NOT put a flag on your body by any means.
2) If you’re going to wear stars and stripes, pick one. It’s totally fine to wear a red and white stripe skirt or blue star print top, just don’t put the two together. Pick one.
3) Go crazy mixing colors and patterns! The more red, white and blue patterns you mix together the better…as long as it’s not stars and stripes. Try layering red white and blue plaid with stripes with more plaid. It makes your outfit look less like you’re trying to recreate the American flag on your body.
