Stars and Stripes: How to style bold patterns

Stars and Stripes: How to style bold patterns

Now that school has ended, the season of summer festivals, picnics, and beach days are upon us. I want to make sure you know what to wear and how to style it. The newest trend is bold patterns, or more specifically, Stars and Stripes. I know what you’re thinking- those patterns are usually reserved for Fireworks and hotdogs, but not anymore. Incorporating bold patterns like these into your everyday wear will give you the wow factor you have been looking for.

Your job now is to look fabulous and my job is to show you how!

Trip to the Beach

When going to the beach an easy way to incorporate stars and stripes is in the bikini.

Here’s some inspo:   


This bikini is from a little online store called Lilly Pop. I love this suite, not only because of the trendy stripe pattern, but also because its high waisted! With this bikini you don't have to think twice before chowing down on that ice cream cone.

Second picture: This bikini is from a favorite online shop of mine, Shein. The blue and white stars along with the knotted top, will be guaranteed hit!

This one is from Free People, so it is pricer than the other two suites, but the quality is undeniable. The thick vertical pattern is very slimming and the high waisted bottoms along with the underwire top gives us the little retro flair we have been looking for.

Lunch Date

           Whether you are going on a picnic in the park, or chilling outside your favorite restaurant, adding in bits of pattern will take your fashion game to the next level.

Here’s some inspo:

These wide leg pinstripe pants from Aritzia are perfect for a summer lunch date. Pair these with some platform shoes and a white crop top are you are sure to turn heads.

This blouse from Nasty Gal is a subtle way to incorporate this fierce pattern into your wardrobe. It is light and breezy so even though its long sleeve you won't be melting in the hot summer sun. Tip: Nasty Gal is always having sales so be sure to check out their low prices.

           A festival is the perfect place to jump out of your comfort zone, so if bold patterns normally aren’t for you… give it a try! At festivals people like to express themselves through their clothes, so make sure whatever you wear you are comfortable in.

           Here’s some inspo: (insert picture of next three links)

This black and white crop top from Nasty Gal is a another subtle way to incorporate stars into your wardrobe. Festivals are usually a place to get creative with your fashion, but for the more traditional look this is the top for you. Pair this with jean shorts, black booties and a brimmed hat, to make the statement you are looking for.


           Everyone wears denim so why not take your denim to the next level. By spicing up denim it takes an everyday piece to something unique and quirky.

Here’s some inspo:

First Picture: I absolutely love these jeans from Free People. The boot cut and the white vertical stripes as very flattering on any body type, not to mention extremely trendy.

Third picture: Jeans aren't the only denim that could use a little pop. This pink and white striped jean skirt from Nasty Gal  is a great way to take any outfit to the next level.


           If you aren’t quite ready to be so bold, adding little hints of stars and stripes in your accessories can be a great way to transition. Whether it’s through jewelry, shoes, purses etc. you can’t go wrong.
