Although some of us have been on summer break for over a month, Memorial Day weekend officially marks the start of the warm weather, BBQs and weekend boating trips up here in Rhode Island. It’s also another chance for everyone to come together with pride for our country and wear those red, white and blue colors to join in with the festivities. That’s the reason this week’s Fashionisto caught my eye.
This Fashionisto showed how proud he was to be an American. He wore a faded red Vans polo with a pair of dark blue slacks, keeping up with the patriotic theme of Memorial Day. He chose a pair of Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes, which was a perfect touch for his nautical outing on the docks of Newport, Rhode Island. Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunnies pull the look together while shading his eyes from the sun on the first day of the summer season.
Want to re-create this Fashionisto’s look? Maybe you’re going to the beach or you have a luncheon to go to during these new summer weekends and you want to keep it patriotic. There are so many ways for you to incorporate red, white and blue into your wardrobe!
If you’re going for a more classic look for a patriotic party, try a pair of white Stanton shorts from J.Crew with a red button-down tucked in. A navy blue blazer and classic Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes will surely be fitting for the party. If you’re going to the beach and want to show your American pride, try a navy and white striped bathing suit. Add a red pullover polo and a pair of sunnies for an effortless fashion statement.
Whether you’re going to a formal party or just plain going to the beach, there are endless ways for you to show your American pride and keep your outfit perfectly patriotic.
