Fabulous 4th of July Style!

This week kicks off all the fabulous events that celebrate Independence day.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 31 years in New York City in August.I just found the coolest flag tee at J Crew that I am so excited to debut on Thursday.As you all know we do have the most insane fireworks display in NYC.

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.This is one occasion that you can get away with 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 outfit on.It is cool crisp and comfortable.Finish it off with a touch of red and blue.It is one of the key colors for Summer 2019 and can be worn over and over again.

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 one of two classic american fabrics,chambray or denim.

Instead of just draping yourself in a flag which concerns some people as being too much,designers have created artistic interpretations that capture the spirit of it while respecting it.Look for something that is more interesting and flattering.Tie dye versions are the must have.

There are so many fabulous accessories out there that feature the flag.Go for a great head to toe solid 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 star dudes 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

This weekend kicks off all the fabulous events that celebrate Canada day.We are all patriots especially this close to a day that celebrates unity and birth.I feel so much kinship with Canada right now that I am celebrating it as well.I have travelled to so many amazing places in Canada, met so many wonderful people and am totally in love with this amazing nation.

This is the one time a year that you can get a little carried away and indulge in some red,white and maple leaf mania.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 is a challenge.

So if you are in the mood for  displaying some all out Canada day madness or just a subtle hint of your patriotic spirit.Here are 3 tips to do it right.

 

Red and White is such a classic Summer combination and you cannot go wrong with it.If you are not a fan of red take a Kate Middleton route and go with all white with some fabulous red accessories.

You can jazz up the simplest summer tank and shorts combo with some really cool red and white accessories.I personally love ones that incorporated the maple leaf.Think of mixing flag inspired accessories with denim or chambray for a more casual look.

One of the most stylish ways to rock patriotic style is with a fabulous manicure.Then mix it up with blue jeans and a crisp white shirt and you have a very chic Canada day look.
