Happy Flag Day Everyone! The holiday, which is almost as old as the country, celebrates our flag. It isn’t an official federal holiday, but parades take place everywhere and it IS a state holiday in Pennsylvania. In honor of our fabulous flag in the U.S.A., it seems the perfect time to wear red, white and blue fashion. Red is spicy, hot and fiery, white is sweet, but can be sexy and navy blue is often found in nautical inspired wear and of course, darker denim. These common colors are spotted all the time on celebs, so if you want to know how to wear them for day or night, check out some star style examples below.
Alexa Chung and Converse All Star
T.V. hostess and model, Alexa Chung, is seen here in a summery ensemble strolling around New York City. The young star is a style icon with her variety of eclectic fashions. She doesn’t just wear one color of the flag, she’s got all three! Alexa pairs a pretty red polka dot top with cut off denim shorts and cool high top Converse sneakers. The Converse All Stars are also available in red, white and a fancy flag print. The red on the United States flag stands for valor and hardiness.
Sara Carbonero and Stuart Weitzman Excise
Sara Carbonero is a young Spanish reporter from Toledo who also works as a television presenter and sports journalist. She has been voted one of the worlds hottest women by popular men’s magazine, FHM. Here Sara is seen at a Pantene Clinic opening in Spain (with her hair looking perfect!) in a fringed little white dress with natural/nude heels similar to the Stuart Weitzman Excise. These summery Stuart Weitzman Wedges will work well with both white evening dresses like Sara’s and more casual day dresses. The white on the American flag stands for purity and innocence. In addition, it’s a great summer shade.
Katy Perry and Kate Spade Kirkland
Here Katy is photographed going out in Paris in a shimmery blue dress, leather jacket, high bun and black ankle boots similar to the Kate Spade Kirkland. We love the Kate Spade boots and think they would pair perfectly with Katy’s rocker glam look. We wonder why Katy is in Paris. Maybe to see her rumored new main squeeze, French model Baptiste Giabiconi. He’s five years her junior, but he sure is hot! Katy rocks not only a blue dress, but blue hair. She must be really patriotic! Or, she loves the color. Either way, blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.
