Stars and Stripes

On Independence Day, our idea of a patriot game is getting decked out in stars and stripes. Lately, we've noticed everybody's all-American, from the Dsquared S/S 12 collection to our favourite fashion trendsetters. This cool spin on patriotic dressing includes chic striped dresses, star-print jeans, and of course, plenty of red, white, and blue. So before you head off to a backyard barbecue or to catch a fantastic fireworks display tomorrow night, check out this roundup of inspiring stars-and-stripes ensembles.
