For Us, the Fourth of July Only Means One Thing — Stars in Stripes

Jun 30 2014 - 6:30am

Stripes are the most versatile print out there. They're easy to find and perfect for print mixing. Plus, they're not limited to one specific style. In other words, they work with a bohemian girl's uniform just as well as they do with her classicist best friend's. But while it's definitely true that they work on anyone, it's almost Independence Day, which makes us think of the stars and stripes. So that's exactly what we're bringing you — our favorite stars rocking their favorite stripes. Lucky for you, it's easy to take a tip from the many looks ahead and translate them to your own wardrobe. Scroll down to get inspired!
