Flag Swarovski Crystal Necklace - Dear Catju

Dear Catju,

Presidents Day weekend made me think about Memorial Day weekend and the 4th of July. What do you recommend for a chic look that is patriotic but not gaudy?

Thanks,

Hi Megan,

Not only does Presidents Day make me think of the patriotic holidays, it also makes me think of summer, which I can NOT WAIT to get here!

I understand that you don't want to look tacky, but you want to show how proud you are of our country! The best solution for this is to not be literal -- you don't want to have large color blocking of red, white and blue all over you -- the key would be to stick to one major color and accent with the others.

For instance, if you chose blue, you would really refine it to a more of a navy. Let's use a navy dress in this case. Let's picture the top of the dress with a collar like a dress shirt and narrow neckline.  In this case, a necklace and earrings really would work well.



Our Red, White and Blue Flag Colors Swarovski Crystals Necklace with Star Pendant has perfect accents of red and white to compliment the blue from the dress and will give a great shine and sparkle!

Then, pair this with our Pearl Star Sterling Silver Earrings to give a simple accent to your necklace.



And surprisingly....leave it at that! In this case, less is more!  You're expressing your patriotism in a very stylish way!

So what's the overall tip? Don't be too literal and show the fun in your accent pieces.

Red, white and blue forever!
Catju

I'm loving both pieces a lot. So fun and patriotic. Perfect for a white sundress, sandals, and a polished ponytail.

Very nice. The star earrings would even go great in the winter around those holidays as well! Very versatile.
