Because today is that one time of year where you can wear a ton of red, white and blue, as well as stars and stripes, eat as many hotdogs and hamburgers as you want…and no one will judge you for it (or at least I won’t). I figure by now you’ve had enough of the “what to wear to a 4th of July BBQ” posts so I’m just going to talk about a few trends that happen to be very appropriate for today’s festivities — stars and stripes.
Now both of these trends (even if worn together) don’t necessarily have to be worn on patriotic holidays. I’ve actually worn this Sonia Rykiel star tank and Illesteva striped sunglasses together before but because there’s no red or blue (actually the inside the sunnies are red, not going to lie) I don’t look like an American flag.
So if you want to get your stars and stripes on, here’s a little inspiration to get you started. Happy 4th!
