It may not yet be the Fourth of July, but you can find fashion inspiration in the upcoming holiday. The stars and stripes of the American flag just look right together - and you can translate them into a playfully patriotic look. Mix star and stripe patterns with bold colors. Just don’t do red, white, and blue - that’s a little too literal. The resulting look? So fabulous that it’ll bring on the fireworks.
1. Start with a mix of solids and stripes: a bright green tie-neck blouse paired with a skinny striped pencil skirt.
2. Add your stars - in the form of a fitted denim jacket adorned with an allover star print.
3. If you dare to add more pattern, try a tote in a bold reverse polka dot print.
4. Finish off the look with gold ballet flats and brightly colored sunglasses. Psst - the purple in the sunglasses plays off the green beautifully.
