Red, White & Blue



Is there anything more classicly American that a navy-striped top with red pants?  I couldn't help but feel drawn to this combination in light of the upcoming holiday.  Thankfully we are still having enough cooler days here in NY that I can get away with wearing my wide-leg trousers for a little bit longer...so I'm taking advantage of it while I can.




What I'm wearing:
H&M top (similar here or here), Kardashian Kollection trousers (on sale here), c/o Christina M. Boutique necklace (here), ELLE pumps, Zara clutch (similar splurge or save), Michael Kors watch, Vintage & Monet bracelets, Dockers aviators (on sale here)

This is such a classic combination, I love it! Also LOVE the addition of that gorgeous gold clutch, so pretty!

Of course I love the classic pairing of colors, but I love the way you wear it! The wide leg pants are fantastic, and the gold clutch is so fun! I have that top in orange/white, and I wish I would have bought the blue/white!

This is great! I love navy and white, but I usually avoid wearing them with red for fear that I will look overly nautical or dressed for a theme party. I think these particular pieces together work great...You could wear them on July 4 to be festive, but wearing them on another day still looks chic (and not as if you're just confused about what day it is). Lovely!

Loving this outfit! It has me thinking about what I should wear for the 4th! Loving these pants. Never tried the Kardashian Kollection yet. Does it run true to size?
Loving this location also.

Love these pants on you! I have a bright pair of red pants that have been sitting in my closet for months now. They are a size too big and I haven't fixed them yet. This makes me want to break out the sewing machine and fix them!

Adorable outfit. I have the same top in most of the colors...they are the perfect stripe tee.

I had a similar outfit with the bright orange Loft pants they had in the spring line.

You look great!

Red white blue - same colours as the union jack but you couldn't be more American with this outfit. Wear those trousers for as long as the weather permits - they are a great shape on you!
