It’s the 4th of July: Are You Ready with Your Red, White, and Blue?

Oh, the controversy. Everywhere you look and every channel you flip to. Politics stink. But America is still great! And soon it will be time to celebrate! Independence Day is almost here. To make sure you have choices for your red, white and blue, we are, of course, here for you.

Red – Hardiness and valor

What’s the story behind the colors of our nation? Well, the legend goes that George Washington was very smitten with the red allure of Martha’s lips and always preferred she stain them with a certain berry only found near the Potomac. And that’s why the colors of America began with red.

The truth is red represents hardiness and valor. Yum, that’s good American stuff. If those traits resonate with you, skip the blue and white this season and go straight for the red. Say, in this oh so cute Red & White Circle Ruffle Top. Off the shoulder but with a slip-free lining, this holiday must-have will have you pledging allegiance.

White – Purity and innocence

Well, nothing says America like purity and innocence, but that’s what our founding fathers were going for when they chose white. Regardless, we’re going to embrace it this 4th of July, like in these crisp and sexy White Shipman Pants. High-waisted and full-legged, these bottoms bring liberty and beauty to all.

 Blue – Vigilance, perseverance and justice


And finally: Blue. This color represents America’s fighting spirit, and it can represent yours too. Wear it with strength, wear it with pride. Like in this Navy Tunic Dress. Its delicate cutouts and cinched waist make for a liberal fit, while the full short sleeves make it ideal for any conservative celebration. It’s simple, sexy, and in line with our own domestic policy: Walk softly and wear a great dress.
