I am finally getting around to posting this work look, but how appropriate! This time of year I love to play around with pairing red, white, and blue. Around the holidays you can pair colors together in festive ways you typically wouldn't be able to other times of the year.

Some of my tips to wearing patriotic colors year round are:
1. Try staying away from stripes (and stars obviously).
2. Only pair two of the colors together (or add the third in very small doses). 
3. Break up the colors by adding a neutral (like my camel blazer) or add a pattern like leopard. 

How do you pair your red, white, and blue?

    This is such a beautiful outfit, I have been looking for a pair of red pants forever. It seems whenever I find a pair in the store, they are out of my size or the fit is off. I really like how you styled them with navy and a camel blazer. I am going to pin this for inspiration once I get my own pair of red pants!
