Let’s celebrate La fête nationale or Le quatorze juillet (or Bastille Day for us English speakers) with our favorite French designers. As I spent July 4th in France, it’s only bizarrely fitting that I spend Le quatorze juillet here in the New York.
My wardrobe’s colour palette definitely skews patriotic — particularly blue and white. It’s hard to get me to turn down a blue and white summer dress. As for red? There’s something about my skin tone and red, I look damn good, it gives me confidence, like, stop-traffic-confidence. Naturally July 4th and Bastille day are my favorite holidays to dress for. Fireworks, summer glows, bare skin and red, white and blue. I can’t think of anything better. Last minute shopping for the long weekend? Check out my picks below!
