Fashion From the Fourth








How did I celebrate my Independence this Fourth of July? In the most poetic way possible: I left Britain for America, and am still trying to figure out how to be emotionally independent from Britain, where my heart still resides (study abroad withdrawals, are quite real). With that being said, I do love America with every fiber of my being, as it is where I was born and raised. Therefore, I gladly celebrated this national holiday in the true American fashion: dressing up in red, white, and blue and indulging my dependence on coffee.

Independence Day may be long gone my friends, but the right patriotic outfit can work for any day of the year. After all, if you love your country, you don’t need to rely on a holiday to show it! I’ve actually worn this ensemble on casual strolls to the grocery store. After all, what’s more patriotic than buying food looking like the American flag? I’m absolutely obsessed with this overall dress that contributes the blue to my look. Not only is it comfortable, but it also makes me feel like I’m an extra on Full House or something. This piece goes well with my horizontal red and white striped tee that looks like the thirteen stripes on the American flag. As the red is a loud color, I decided to wear some red MAC lipstick to refrain from a washed out looking face. For accessories, I decided go with brown leather shoes and a bag. Brown leather goes well with both red and blue, rather than black that would result in an awkward contrast. For that final touch, I’m wearing these vintage hoop earrings with an accented pearl detailing.

To close, I would like to leave you with these wise words from Adrian Cronauer: “The American Flag represents all of us and all the values we hold sacred.” Therefore, wearing the colors of the American flag is an acknowledgement to those values, proof those values are a part of who you are. After all, clothes are a propaganda to your identity. What do you want yours to say?

Keeping it Krischic,
