Stars & Stripes; The American Flag


The American flag. I'm really curious how this print is suddenly seen on all kinds of clothing. It is seen on shorts, shirts and even on heels. You name it and this piece of clothes is probably spotted with the American flag on it. Some people wear it to make a statement, for example on the fourth of July. Others might say it should only be used as a flag. Nevertheless, I am a fan of this trend! I must say that it's important that you don't take this to far! I'm also wondering if you only can wear this print if you wear it with a purpose or is it also OK to wear it because you just like the print?

There is one store of which I'm a huge fan; Brandy & Melville . This store is situated in big city's in different countries and yes, we have one in Amsterdam! This Italian brand sells amazing clothes and I think they are of a very good quality. They also sell all kinds of clothing with the American flag on it. We may see this print as a trend but this brand was using this print before this trend became big. So is this a coincidence or are they a real trendsetter...

I have only one piece with the American flag on it in my closet, but if I could, I would wear it everyday. It's a scarf from .. . I noticed the less expensive stores are also selling these kind of scarfs which are a good alternative. The one I bought was a little more expensive and has a beautifull subtle American flag on it. I found some items which I love, I found some expensive ones but next to those photo's I pictured a less expensive version which I think are great!
