So the 4th of July is almost here which means the nations remembrance of Independence Day will be marked with fireworks, barbecues, picnics, family reunions but for some of us it also means fashion combinations of red, white and blue.
But what if you did not get that US flag T-shirt that was on sale or that stars and stripe pair of shorts that is now sold out?
Look at the calendar! Only a week left to order something and there is nothing left! OH, this can't be happening! What to do?
Calm down, we are here to help. A few simple ideas can go a long way to fill in those last minute needs for that beach party or bond fire you are going to without feeling out of place.
US Flag Sunglasses
No matter what you wear a pair of US flag sunglasses always makes a great 4th of July accessory along with giving you the freedom to open up the rest of your outfit to other options. There are several different brands and styles of US Flag sunglasses such as round, oval, heart shape, glitter, metal frame, plastic frame and even peace symbol ones so it really is up to you to select which one works for you.
Wear a white top with blue bottoms or a blue top with white bottom.
OK, this may sound over done but that is because it works! You knock out two of the three colors in one shot, but I know you are thinking, 'I really didn't need to read this to figure this out'. Maybe you did, because every time someone says white top it quickly translates to 'White T-shirt' and blue bottom to 'Blue shorts'. Did you stop for a moment and think about switching the colors around if you wanted to be noticed at a party? Remember, the flag is red, white and blue so unless you actually have the flag pattern on your clothes what you need to do is make sure you have all 3 colors on you. So a Blue top with white bottoms kind of covers that without breaking any rules, looks cute and makes sure you stand out of the crowd. Well you could be one of 20 other girls with the white t-shirts and blue denim shorts at that party or you can be that one girl with the cute blue denim shirt and the white denim shorts, it really is up to you.
Use Red Accessories
If you concentrate the use of red to your accessories while allowing white and blue to dominate your clothing you will find it will free up your options. Having red nail polish, red handbag, a red hat, red scarf, red hair pieces, red jewelry, red shoes, or any other red accessories can make a big difference in your outfit while spreading out your patriotic sense of fashion. So what are you waiting for? Make up for lost time and get something together for the 4th of July right now.
