Stars & Stripes
In honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday, Fashion Fabrics Club highlights five chic ensembles to show off your patriotic pride.
Combining red-white-and-blue with a star print can often times appear a bit costumey. Instead, keep the star print in black-and-white like this simple dress. If you want to bring in a little color, try adding a pop of red in an accessory.
Instead of a vivid lipstick red and bright blue, using more muted tones like cranberry red and pale blue can help temper the busyness of a star-print fabric. This pattern with its small star print looks more like a polka dot pattern from far away, which also helps to keep things feel more sophisticated.
An easy way to keep a 4th look on the more mature side is by swapping the white in red-white-and-blue for grey. Try this cool red-and-grey stripe in a classic T and pair with a favorite pair of denim for an effortlessly cool, everyday look.
Using seersucker as the stripey focal point gives an easy outfit of casual shorts and a cotton tank a little preppy polish. Take a lesson from this diva and top off with bright red espadrilles to complete the look.
Rather than pairing your blue-and-white stripes with a star pattern, try a white-and-red chevron print like this stellar mixed-print look. The chevron still captures the sharp geometry that a star print exudes, but this is a much more modern, and less obvious, pairing. Insider tip: When pairing multiple prints like this look, be sure that the patterns vary is size, like this thin stripe up top and thick chevron on bottom to keep things from looking messy.
