Looks from Marc Jacobs, Chanel, and Max Mara SS16
This season, designers from all over the globe looked toward the red, white, and blue for inspiration, coming up with a new sort of chic patriotism. And we could not be happier! Americana entering into the high-fashion lexicon means 4th of July weekend no longer requires a costume-y ensemble of flags and mis-matched separates. Instead, borrow from the runway and try out casual pieces that retain a nostalgic sensibility. Swap your everyday denim with a high waisted pair in a shade of bright red, or even choose a mini dress as a unique alternative. For tops, go nautical with a boat neck tee that will take you anywhere. If you have a jam-packed schedule you might want to try a hands free approach and seek out a leather backpack. Should your July 4th weekend plans lead you to the beach- just as Taylor Swift and her band of it girls’ did- pack a rash guard that hits all the right sporty notes.
