For all the fashionable girls out there, this section is for you. So, what are we waiting for? Let's get started!
Wear the Colors on Your Hat
Patriotic hat
Perhaps the simplest way to wear patriotic colors is to get a hat that has red, blue, and white stripes on it. Now, you don't even have to go looking for such a hat! Just get a ribbon in the said colors, tie it around the hat, and you're ready to go. What's more, it is perfect for a day out with your pals. Pair it with any casual outfit, such as a white sundress, cool shorts, and a tee, or a cute miniskirt.

Just flaunt a pair of killer heels in patriotic colors, and watch other women go green with envy! And if it's gonna be an evening spent with that special someone, then use the heels to cast a spell as you walk towards him. Pair it with anything that defines glam, from a designer cocktail dress to formal trousers and a feminine blouse.

Jewelry That Spells Patriotism
Patriotic jewelry
The most subtle way to show your patriotism is by wearing a few statement pieces of jewelry in the colors of the flag. Wear a necklace in multicolored beads, a ring with a miniature flag embedded on it, or simply a pair of earrings. One amazing thing about jewelry is that it won't cost you much, and you can easily work with existing pieces from your wardrobe. For example, instead of looking for a necklace with red, blue, and white beads, you can wear three necklaces of one color each. The more you experiment with jewelry, the more unique the look you get.

It's Time for Style!

When it's a time to flaunt your patriotic side, do so in style with a watch in colors of the flag. You need not go overboard with a watch that screams patriotism, but keep it subtle with something similar to the one shown above. The best part is that you can go ahead and pair it with any and every outfit, formal or casual.
However, to make things easier for you, we have provided a few possible looks that will go well with it.

Tie the Patriotic Knot

If a formal event is all you have in your cards, then use a tie to add that much-needed splash of patriotic colors to your outfit. You can even go for a bow-tie if you wish, but choose the color wisely. After all, a formal event demands that you dress to look sober, and not go over the top with your patriotic fervor. Sadly, there aren't many ways to play around with your look when you wear a tie.
Here's the most obvious (and perhaps the only) way to wear a tie. Can you suggest any other?
