Fresh Patriotic Ensembles

Hey Fashionista! Memorial Weekend is here in 2 days! I'm sure you have something fun planned, like, hanging out on the beach, going to a friend or family member's awesome BBQ or entertaining at home.  Why not enhance your fun by wearing something patriotic to mark this special holiday? Instead of going for the old tried and true staples (flag bikinis, flag tank tops, or flag shorts) I'm all about freshening up our red, white and blue in fun unexpected ways! Here are my fresh patriotic ensembles that will help you break out of the patriotic "norm!"

White shorts, jean shorts, blue flip flops, polka dot or strip tanks in the colors red, white, and blue are easy ways to incorporate patriotism into your ensemble that look chic and stylish!

Rompers are awesome for warm weather BBQ parties.  Why not try it in a blue? Add red and white stripe flats and accessories in patriotic colors!

A lightweight scarf in red, white and blue is super cute with a white t-shirt and jeans!  If you're going somewhere that's cooler at night or breezey during the day, this will keep you warm and stylish during Memorial weekend. 

Clutches are a MUST at parties.  Find one in patriotic colors like the one above. Add it with a blue and white polka dot dress or top and add lots of accessories for a glam look.

Blue and White Stripe Dresses are my favorite and super cute to wear when our patriotic holidays arrive. This is easy to jazz up. Add a red scarf, a patriotic purse or shoes and you're set! 

Think outside the patriotic box! Not every red, white and blue piece needs to be stripes or polka dots...they can come in other cool abstract prints like in the skirt above.  As long as you're within the red, white and blue theme, you can still pull of a patriotic ensemble successfully!

Ahhh...the white dress. Has to be another favorite of mine. Goes with so many things, during many seasons. It's as appealing as the little black dress.  So...find your perfect little white dress and spice it up with red white and blue accessories.  I like the patriotic red and white stripe bangles, paired with solid blue and red bangles. Break up the color combo with gold to accent the overall look.

Patriotic holidays like Memorial Day and Fourth of July does not mean you have to wear the same thing year after year. Break out of your rut and add these fresh patriotic ensembles to help you enjoy your memorial weekend to the fullest! Have a SAFE & FUN weekend, Fashionista!
