Stars & Stripes

Trend Alert: American Flag Shorts 
"Maybe it’s the upcoming Summer 2012 Olympic Games—or the fact that all-American designer Ralph Lauren has created the closing-ceremony uniforms for our athletes—but fashion is having a moment with all things red, white, and blue." (Benjou, June 7, 2012) The American flag can be seen printed in various forms this season from Jeffrey Campbell's popular Stars & Stripes Lita platforms (see here) to Balmain's controversial American flag tank (see here). However, the most catching form is the shorts form. The American flag shorts have been spotted on some of the most stylish celebrities and some of the most influential fashion bloggers. See for yourself!

Would you rock this trend?

If so, would you rock it throughout the summer or 
just on occasions like the 4th of July?


  1. I'd definitely rock this trend the entire summer! I love this American flag theme but unfortunately I don't own a pair of shorts like this, only a shirt which is one of my favourites at the moment xx

  2. Love this trend! My friend actually made a pair of her own and they look EXACTLY like the first picture. I'm sure it would look fab with any flag

  3. Wow, these styles are hot! I especially love that lipstick that Ke$ha is wearing.

  4. Thank you ladies!

    @Marta: If you want a pair of short you could do what Joey's friend did and make your own. Their are a lot of youtube tutorials and DIY instructions on the web. Here is link to a simple version that requires paint: and here is a link to one that requires some sewing abilities:

    @Joey: I completely agree with you; I think this trend would look great with most flags.

    @Elle: I thought the same thing when I found that image of Kesha; it's a very cool shade of lipstick, but I don't think I would rock it myself.

  5. America flag shorts are a real must! I think that they are so cool and sexy! I would easily wear them, even though I am not from America.

    Have an amazing week!

    1. While, trying to find material to write this, I found out that a lot of non-Americans are rocking this trend; so you're not alone.

  6. Thank you for visiting Blush and your lovely comment. I am following back :)


  7. This is the trend of the moment! I adore it!

  9. The trend is a little too 1980s for me, haha. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    1. Lol I don't really care to wear this trend either, but I know a lot of young ladies who do.

  10. I've seen this trend everywhere on Pinterest. I would rock this trend but probably only on July 4th. It's fun and festive.

  11. Great post! I'm glad you listened to my idea and did this trending topic. I would rock this look.
