Independence Day Outfit Inspiration

2

Tomorrow the stars and stripes will be out for Independence Day! Lately we’ve even been seeing a lot of outfits that aren’t just inspired by the American colors, but feature the American flag itself. We love this patriotic pattern, and we would wear it even if it wasn’t July 4th! Here are a few of our favorite ways to rock America’s colors, and look super stylish while doing it.

4th of July DIY: Stars and Stripes Shorts

9

The 4th of July is almost upon us, so of course we’ve been getting ready with some American-themed DIYs! We found some awesome starred and striped ribbon in our store, so we jazzed up a pair of denim shorts and gave them some patriotic spirit. Keep reading to find out how to make it yourself!

Supplies:

1. Lay the starred ribbon over the top of the back pocket of your shorts, then cut it so it perfectly fits across the top of the pocket. Cut another piece of the same size. While the starred ribbon is still placed at the top of the pocket, place the striped ribbon underneath and cut it so it fits across the middle of the pocket. Cut another piece of the same size. Use the same process to create two bottom strips of the starred ribbon.

2. Flip the top piece of the starred ribbon over and add some glue to the back. Place it on the top of the back pocket and press down while glue dries.

3. Continue to glue down the other pieces of ribbon, making sure you have a starred piece at the top, then a striped piece, then another starred piece. Do this for both pockets.

4. Let the glue dry, then you’re all set. Pair your shorts with a flowy white top and a bright red bag, and rock them at 4th of July celebration!
