Go Red, White And Denim

Why not go red, white and blue this summer. Here are four ways to style your denim while showing that you’re an All-American gal.

BE COOL

The white jean, a timeless summer standby, gets a modern update. Slouchy red leather cowboy boots work well with the cropped, slightly rough finish on the straight pant. Paired with a shimmery, strapless bustier the look is unexpected and downright chic.

SUBTLE PRINTS

Who says red, white, and blue has to be kitschy? Opt for a feminine floral motif that nods to this color scheme, or for a tailored look, pair your jeans with a red and white pinstriped or patterned poplin shirt.

RAIN OR SHINE

Don’t let a summer thunderstorm dampen your plans. Simply reach for a transparent raincoat that will protect you from the weather without hiding your flattering high-waisted skinnies.

DRESS IT DOWN

A flouncy crop top can feel overdressed for a barbecue, so tone your look down by pairing it with relaxed, vintage-inspired jeans. These Adaptation cropped straight-leg jeans have slight distressing in just the right places.
