We're officially into summer and that means the 4th of July is days away! The 4th has always been one of my favorite holidays, perhaps because it's basically an extension of my birthday celebrations, but who doesn't love cookouts and fireworks!?
Every year LuLaRoe releases an Americana collection, and this year is the best one yet! The United & Strong collection features vintage prints and sun-washed colors that are perfect throughout the year, not just the 4th of July!
Not sure how to get the full patriotic look out of your Americana wear? It doesn't have to be stars and stripes everywhere - it can be as simple as incorporating red or blue pieces into your existing outfit. Pick one color and play it up with a bold cardigan or leggings to make your outfit pop! Or, grab a floral or stripe that features patriotic colors and then pair with Americana leggings to give your outfit a patriotic kick!
For the rest of the year, my favorite way to style my Americana pieces is to pair them with casual items that bring them into my everyday wardrobe. This allows me to bring a style that might only fit one or two occasions on paper, and make it everyday accessible! Throw on your favorite United & Strong Kristina with your distressed denim shorts and flip flops and you're ready for a day at the beach or county fair. Pair a flowy cardigan or kimono and make your look a little more punk/rock or bohemian for a night out with friends.
The best piece of advice I can share is to treat your Americana pieces like graphic tees when incorporating them into your existing wardrobe. Stay true to your unique style and make these pieces work for you 365 days a year!
