Style and Stripes

Red, white and blue fashion inspiration for July 4th

From watching the firecrackers to firing up the barbecues, you’ve got a whole weekend of Independence Day shindigs to gussy up for. But how will you rep your country’s stripes without looking like a biker from the land of fashion faux pas? (We love Duck Dynasty as much as anyone, but those bandanas are so not OK north of the Mason-Dixon or west of Texas.)

Instead, dress in these stylish red, white and blue pieces. They're super cute—and they won’t flag down the fashion police.

We can pledge allegiance to that.
