Sporting the red, white and blues can be patriotic and fun heading into the long weekend, but you don’t want to look like a walking American flag. Whether you’re at work or at the beach, here are a few ideas to show your American pride while keeping it classy….

A white dress with a blue neck scarf gives a 1950's, super American vibe.

Pair these blue patterned pants with a simple white or red blouse. For a more relaxed vibe during your picnic, wear them with flat sandals.

Blue jeans and a white shirt are as American as James Dean. Tuck a white T-shirt into a pair of Levi's. If its excruciatingly hot, trade in the jeans for cut offs and your basic white tee and sandals.

A red skirt with a blue belt blends two bold colors in a subtle fashion.

Classic stripes will last long after the holiday weekend.
