Fabulous 4th of July Style!

This weekend kicks off all the fabulous events that celebrate Independence day.We are all patriots especially this close to the Independence day weekend.

This is the one time a year that I get a little carried away and indulge in some red,white and blue mania.Being an immigrant whose journey to citizenship was pretty arduous,I never take this day for granted.I am very proud to call this country my home and celebrate 30 years in New York City next month.

It is such a fine line between creating a fabulous fashion forward patriotic look or ending up with something that looks like it escaped from a parade.If you want to rock some over the top patriotic style by all means go for it.

For most of us it is about a balance between showing off our patriotism and being stylish.To find the right balance I looked to the stars of movies and music for inspiration.

So if you are in the mood for  displaying some all out 4th of July madness or just a subtle hint of your patriotic spirit.Here are 5 tips to do it right.

 

White is such a clean refreshing palette to base you out fit on.It is cool crisp and comfortable.Finish it off with a touch of red and blue.

Picking one motif and making it your central theme,creates a look that is sophisticated and polished,take a cue from these celebrities and create just one focal point to your outfit.Mix this with two classic american fabrics,chambray and denim.

Instead of just draping your self in a flag,designers have created artistic interpretations that capture the spirit of it.Look for something that is more interesting and flattering.

 

There are so many fabulous accessories out there that feature the flag.Go for a great head to toe white,red or blue outfit and then punch it with a flag bag or shoe.Subtle but very effective in creating a stylish outfit.I usually tend to take this route myself.There are so any fantastic options.

 

With all the creativity that is going on with nails,this is the place to go crazy.So get some patriotic nail art and pair with a crisp white shirt and a great pair of jeans to get the ultimate understated wow outfit.

The great news is all of these tips work for the men in your life as well maybe not so much tip number 5 but I know a few rock stars that can make it work.

But the main thing to remember is to celebrate what an amazing country we are because it is our diversity that makes us so great.

Happy Independence Day
