As spring makes way for summer, the season evolves into plenty of sunshine, clear skies and pops of red, white and blue. The patriotic color scheme seems synonymous with summer thanks to holidays like Memorial Day and the 4th of July.
As we celebrate Memorial Day weekend, it seems only appropriate to use the color palette as a point of inspiration and way to remember those who have served our country.
Stars, stripes and gold accents are the perfect trio to celebrate a patriotic spirit. Designer Zuhair Murad did just that in his spring collection. He kept the looks fresh with youthful silhouettes like the trapeze top and front peplum detailing.
The spirit of Americana is evident in the designs thanks to stripes and gold accessories that shimmer like stars.
Not only do the color and fabric choices bring to mind the American flag, they also pay homage to WWII sailors.
The use of nautical stripes and gold buttons are particularly reminiscent of the American sailors. There’s even a pant suit in the collection that resembles the flared legs of their uniforms.
As you set sail into summer, be sure to celebrate the season and the country’s heritage with a little bit of red, white and blue.
