In the words of +Lana Del Rey.. ."I'm your National Anthem boy, put your hands up give me a standing ovation"
What's The Deal?
The American flag has become somewhat of a fashion trend now. Stars such as +Lana Del Rey and +Lady Gaga sport the flag on clothing and in their videos marking fashion trends which have now been adopted and put onto the shelf in popular clothing stores. +American Style

The red, white and blue colours along with the the stand out stars and stripes on the flag make the American flag somewhat of an eye catching move for clothing. The flag is now seen on items such as hats and belts to vests, jumpers and shorts. Here we will look at the different styles featured in men's clothing.
What Looks Work?
Some looks which have the American Flag include:
|Red T-Shirt With American Flag|
|Grey T-Shirt With The American Flag In Colour|
|Topman - £20|
|Guns N' Roses American Flag T-Shirt|
Starting with t-shirts, The red, white and blue colours blend nicely with whatever base colour there is, whether it is a black, white or grey. These t-shirts are ready for everyday use all year round so customising it with a shirt/cardigan or pair of braces can really make an outfit that extra special/important for standing out. Styles from +Topman and +River Island
|Black and White American Flag Vest|
|Topman - £16|
|Dirty American Flag Vest|
|River Island - £14|
|White Vest With Black and White American Flag Pattern|
|Stars and Stripes Vest|
|Front and Back Denim American Flag Jacket|
|American Apparel Model (Separated At Birth)|
|Back View Of Denim Jacket (Booty Tooch)|
One of my favourite items on the list. This denim jacket from +American Apparel is a really cool jacket to own. From the front it is a simple denim jacket but on the back is a coloured American Flag which takes up nearly the entire back of the jacket.

Other Fashion Items/Accessories:
|Stars and Stripes Bobble Beanie Hat|
|American Flag Onesie|
|New Look - £24.99|
|Long Johns/Onesie Black and White American Flag|
|American PJ Bottoms/Shorts - Topman|
As well as t-shirts/shorts and shoes, accessories play a very important roll in wanting to stand out. If you are lounging at home there is a onesie for looking cool/staying warm. Running to the shop first thing in the morning could never look cooler. I have recently come across making long johns into an outfit. This is simply done with wearing a pair of shorts over them so that the stars and stripes are visible underneath. Other cool items to make your outfit that extra bit swaggy are beanie hats, scarfs and belts. All can make an outfit that extra bit stylish.
The American flag print of stars and stripes. mixed with the red, white and blue colours really gives fashion a stand out statement to rock. From Vests to hats the pattern and style the flag offers is a really cool way to stand out and get noticed.
