How To Wear Stars and Stripes Forever (or at Least This Summer)

Ah, the Fourth of July. Bring on the ultimate American trifecta—fireworks, hot dogs and patriotic music.

Unfortunately, after the holiday passes, daily firework displays aren’t common and consuming copious amounts of hot dogs on the reg probably isn’t advised. But that John Philip Sousa was on to something—because when it comes to fashion, stars and stripes really are forever. (That’s what he was talking about when he composed the song in 1896, right?)

These two prints are major in fashion, especially during the summer. So even as we say “so long” to the Fourth of July, you can still be as patriotic and fashionable as ever.

Check out these 11 looks that show how to wear stars and stripes forever (or this summer, at least).
