There are some looks that just stay with you forever. They are iconic, memorable and meaningful, and engrain themselves in your satorial psyche. For me, the American Flag’s prominence in fashion has been with me since childhood and I’ve found my #1 favorite look featuring the flag, followed by a less literal, but just as memorable piece.
It’s summer so what’s more apropros than the American Flag bikini? So many celebs have sported one version or another of this stylish, simple and straight-forward interpretation of American freedom. I’m not sure where, or on whom, I first saw this design, but I’ve thought that it was so cute since I was a teen. You can find many versions of this in mono-kini’s and one-pieces as well.

I absolutedly love this dress on actress Zoe Saldana. Somewhat literal with the stripe detail, but stopping short of the stars on blue motif, this Armani evening gown still references the American flag in a bold but elegant manner. Zoe kept her jewelry to a minimum, as the dress itself makes enough of a statement.
Take today to show off your patriotic style- Happy 4th of July!
