Perhaps the impending Fourth of July celebrations have me feeling more patriotic than usual, but I simply cannot get enough of red, white and blue or stars and bars this summer. I think we should all take a moment to reaffirm our belief in that which unites us – fashion – and perhaps get a little last minute shopping done.
I pledge allegiance to the fashion
I’m a firm believer that when you swear an oath there should be jewelry involved. What better way to commemorate your renewed passion for fashion than a hammered star necklace? Regardless of whether you are fan of yellow, white, or rose gold, this asymmetrical star will show the world that you are fulfilling your patriotic duty by being fashionable.
Of the United States of America
The stripes of our flag represent the original thirteen colonies. Today we have 50 states and America truly is the cultural melting pot. Why not celebrate our diversity with this pastel striped Fendi satchel? The veritable rainbow of stripes on this must have, summer white handbag ensures that it will go with all your favorite outfits this season.
And to the rights for which it stands
First Lady Michelle Obama is a huge proponent of the right of American women to “bare arms.” Whether sporting a sleeveless sheath dress for day or a strapless ball gown for evening, she embodies the right of fashionable women everywhere to go as bare as they dare. This Lauren by Ralph Lauren boatneck sheath dress will keep you cool and chic on land and sea.
And to a woman’s Right to Shoes
Kick off any patriotic celebration with these red-and-white striped sandals from Paul Green. The wedge will save you from sinking stiletto deep into the lawn at your neighbor’s backyard barbecue and the stripey straps will brighten everyone’s day.
Sophisticated, With Attainable Luxury for all
America’s greatest contribution to the fashion industry is sportswear to go along with our relatively active lifestyles. Whether they live in chic dresses or jeans and a tee, American women blend comfort and style, with just a dash of sophistication. This distressed star-studded tee shirt by Current/Elliott is the perfect casual homage to Old Glory. Pair it with your favorite boyfriend cut jeans for a distinctly casual look or dress it up with skinny jeans.
Second City Style and Male Box are committed to supporting your inalienable right to Attainable Luxury. So, wherever you are this July 4th, assert your rights to fashion. Do your patriotic duty and show the world that American women can be both casual and chic!
