In honor of today’s election, we’re sharing tips on how to wear Red, White, and Blue without looking like you’re draped in an American flag. Here’s how to do it:
(1) Pick a dominant color. Here, we chose blue to be the dominant shade, but we could have built the outfit around white or red instead. The very navy blue sweater complements the blue sailor jeans.
(2) Add the other two colors as accents. Here, we counterbalanced the blue with a white tuxedo jacket and coordinating red accessories: flats and a ladylike structured handbag.
(3) Extra style points for cool detailing on your reds, whites, and blues. We were struck by the toggle closure on the ever-so-navy sweater, and we like the visual texture of the tuxedo pleats on the white button-down. Even the jeans are special, with its sailor button detailing.
Now that you’re dressed and ready for Election Day, find your nearest polling place, and go out and vote!
