7 Ways to Wear Red, White, and Blue on Labor Day

If you’ve been dreaming up your ideal Labor Day Weekend outfit, it’s time to break out your red, white, and blue. Read on to find out seven different ways to style yourself this Labor Day.

Get Nautical

Since American style goes hand in hand with classic nautical looks, get nautical for Labor Day. Wear a nautical red drifter cotton shaker cardigan sweater with a blue button-down underneath and a pair of white denim or shoes for the full red, white, and blue effect. This kind of cardigan sweater hits at the low hip. It makes for any day sweater weather, so it won’t just have to be for Labor Day. It’s a versatile cardigan with handy pockets for all of life’s essentials. You’ll look super stylish with the ribbed collar, cuffs, and hem that stay in shape. Polish off your look with a pearl necklace you’ll be ready to set sail.

Fall Meets Summer

It can be challenging to figure out what to wear when it’s not quite autumn yet, particularly over Labor Day. The good news is that clothes for both the fall and summer seasons are totally appropriate. Wear a white sweatshirt with red shorts or a blue cardigan with a white skirt. If you prefer a more playful look, it turns out that tie-dye isn’t just for children. Check out a sun short sleeve curved hem tunic top-print in Baltic teal tie-dye floral. It’s a fun way to sneak in reds, whites, and blues in a floral tie-dye pattern. It’s playful yet feminine. You’ll love this shirt to wick away sweat and keep odor in check all year long. After Labor Day, you’ll be able to dress up this shirt in an edgier way, such as a leather or denim jacket.

Play in the Pool

The pools are about to close, so it’s time to enjoy the warm weather while we still can. It’s not just the little black swimsuit that looks flattering. Try a bandeau one-piece swimsuit in red and white gingham. The deep-sea gingham and stripe patterns offer a lowkey way to play with patterns. Tummy control lining helps slim and smooth the swimsuit to fit your shape best. There are sewn-in soft cups that shape and support your natural curves. You’ll love the charming gingham print steeped in classic American style. Don’t forget your sunscreen and your floppy hat!

Coordinate Everything

You can mix reds, whites, and blues. You can also coordinate everything in your outfit for a sleek monochrome look with solid colors from head to toe. Wear your rule-breaking white dress with a slew of all-white accessories. Make a statement in all red by wearing power stilettos or having fun with red sneakers. Look laid-back yet polished in blue denim, such as a chambray top and jeans. You can also go for a solid color look without wearing all plain colors, such as a flowery white sundress with white kitten heels. Break out your patterned blue shirt with high-rise jeans and blue suede shoes.

Make It Fashion

The truth is that you may not want to look like a firecracker on Labor Day. Pick out a few of your staple red, white, and blue pieces to put together a sophisticated look without feeling you’re the firework this Labor Day. Try a white cotton top with a blue wrap skirt, and finish your look off with a pair of red sandals. A red and white striped midi skirt, a cool blue top, clutch purse, and statement earrings will make you look like a fashionista at any event.

Stay Cool

When in doubt, cardigan it out. The women’s cardigan sweater is a staple piece that has stood the test of time. You don’t have to be a fashionista to wear it well. Keep it casual, or go retro with polo-style cardigans. Stay cool by wearing a shawl collar cardigan over a plain T-shirt. You’re sure to be cool and comfortable over Labor Day Weekend in your cozy cardigan.

Who Needs Rules?

If you’re still unsure what to wear for Labor Day, you don’t need to be. This is your chance to say goodbye to rules. One outdated rule you can throw out the window is that mixing prints, like stripes and polka dots, is a fashion no-no. You can make a splash without even being poolside. Mix a nautical blue theme with daring red stripes. Think of a vibrant red skirt with a playful blue and white striped shirt. Then there’s that other rule we all have on our mind for Labor Day. To wear white or not? Dear to wear a little white dress with red shoes to make it pop, or slip into a pair of white jeans and look casual with a denim shirt.

It’s time to celebrate the start of fall. You’ll be keeping it cool and stylish this Labor Day in all of your favorite styles. While the end of summer may be giving you the blues, don’t forget to add your reds and whites to the mix.
