UNITED WE STAND by Claire Geist
It was Bill Blass who said, “When in doubt, wear red”, Mark Twain who said, “Wearing white betokens purity and innocence”, and Picasso who suggested a blue period could be more than emotional. Now, conflicting prompts can turn out to be completely succinct when all of those colors are worn together, and since white attracts the least amount of heat from the sun, wearing white in the summer is – no pun intended – way cool.
With the passing of our nation’s birthday, wearing our flag’s colors all at once can seem a bit kitchy in a bad way. However, when white is the dominant color in your ensemble, punches of red and blue add charming allure, just be careful not to get grass stains on your pants!
Move towards the notion of Americana and freedom of boundaries when wearing these colors. While keeping cool outdoors, there’s a certain grace to wearing white as the epitome of summer lovin’. Oh, and did we mention it makes the tan you worked so hard for more apparent?
