Woylaa.com – Fourth of July has just passed; many people in the USA have shown their patriotism in every way imaginable, including in fashion. While latest fashion trends come and go in the States, there is always one thing obvious in the USA: Fourth of July fashion is always full of flags. While it is okay to show your patriotism by putting the flag everywhere, putting too many flags on your fashion can be a bit kitschy, especially since many people do the same thing.
If you are not careful, your appearance will look too garish and cartoonish. However, there are still many ways to dress up for Fourth of July while still emulating the elements of patriotic look, without even wearing the flag.
Latest Fashion Trends for Independence Day: No Full Flag
Being elegant in patriotic way is possible! The no-flag patriotic fashion is the latest fashion trends adopted by many men and women who want to celebrate the special day, but without wearing the entire flag on their bodies. The key is the ability to combine the elements that represent the flag or other patriotic theme, but without looking too cheesy such as wearing short dress with full flag patterns on it (imagine if you have to attend a sophisticated party with such getup!).
For example, you can always play with one specific pattern of the flag, either the star or the stripes, and play it in less gaudy way.
As you can see, the dress above only has stripes on it, but blue stripes over the white color are enough to make people instantly imagine the simpler version of the US flag design, and you can actually wear the element without looking cheesy.
Also, the latest fashion trends put more emphasis on accessories, so maybe you can wear anything you like as long as it is non flag, but you put the flag elements on the accessories instead, like these collections of flag themed shoes, sandals, bracelets and bags. However, make sure you only wear one piece of these accessories to avoid the same gaudy look. You can wear these accessories in a casual Fourth of July celebrations or when watching parade.
Play with Flag Colors
What if you do not like patterns? You can always wear colors that represent the flag instead: white, red and blue. Clashing colors are also among the latest fashion trends, so do not hesitate to combine these colors and get patriotic themed look even without attaching the flag on your body. For example, look at these items; there are everything from long dress to bag and sweater. These items do not have flags, but they have red, white and blue (or one of them) as the main color.
This one is even more subdued; with patterned red dress, blue and red earrings, blue sunglasses, and nude sandals. This is subtle, but still somehow emulates the patriotic feeling from elements of the flag.
So, the next time you celebrate Fourth of July, always be the person that follows the latest fashion trends: you do not have to wear the entire flag to show your patriotism.
