5 tips to look polished in a patriotic look

#midlifestyle 5 tips to look polished in a patriotic look

Patriotic outfits can be stylish

All national day parades or parties require to dress up in the national colors. Thus, you must not be an American to get something out of this post. No matter what your nationality is, when it comes to dressing in the national colors, one may end up looking costumed.

Here are 5 tips to avoid looking ridiculous in patriotic attire.

  1. Stay away from anything ruffled. Ruffles are an element of costumes.
  2. Stay away from shorts, socks, T-shirts, dresses, shoes, sunglasses, hats etc. that have flag prints.
  3. Pick items in the national colors from your closet and create a casual tasteful outfit that you could imagine to wear at a normal weekend.
  4. Add another color to your national colors or leave one color out.
  5. Substitute one color with a color that is close to your national colors like demonstrated in today’s OOTD (in this case winter white instead of white).
