Hooray for the Red, White and Blue

Summer is the time for color, whether it’s bright red geraniums on a blindingly white porch or skies of a brilliant blue (when they’re not hazy from the humidity). These red, white and blue colors are played up even more this month as the country celebrates its birthday and you see them on everything from paper plates to T-shirts.

Although the hues generally appear together as a trio, these colors of the flag can also exert some independence by going it alone in an outfit—think a simple white or navy dress or a paring of pants and a shirt all in red. Summer is the time for getting your patriotic on.
