Memorial Day is almost here and it has us thinking of barbeques, summer days, flags, and parades. It’s also just one of the holidays where we show our love for America with some red, white, and blue.
To help you and your family get decked out for this and future holidays, we’ve curated an album full of red, white and blue. The items included in this album include everything from the subtle to stars and stripes.
Fall in love with an Irma shirt several sizes bigger than your usual? Want to try something a little different with the ones already in your closet? Don’t despair. We’ve got some styling ideas from the simple to the extreme for you to try out.
Cuff It & Belt It
Tame the oversized with cuffing on the sleeves to bring them up and a belt to bring in that waistline.
This is a great way to bring it that extra fabric and it perfect for layering over a dress or long tank. Drop the knot down and it’s also cute with jeans or shorts.
Drop A Shoulder
Drop a shoulder and tuck the sleeve into itself for an asymmetrical look. If you want to add a little va va voom, add that belt on to create an hourglass shape.
Drop the other shoulder and you’ve got a sleeveless dress. You can tuck the sleeves in themselves and throw a belt on to keep up the hourglass or use them to bring in the sides by knotting.
This is an example of what it looks like knotted in the back.
Though my favorite of the three is the front knot. Tuck the ends for a more elegant appearance.
Once you’ve dropped the collar into a sleeveless position, you can also choose to use the sleeves to create a halter neck. Pull up the sleeves, knot, and lean over to floof a little for a nice draped look.
As usual, throw on a belt if you feel like the material is taking over.
Skirt the Matter
If you want to completely change things around then this last transformational tip is for you. Drop that collar to your waist and you’ve got a new skirt. Since arms hanging off the sides aren’t exactly in (though you never know what you’ll see during fashion week), tie them to make them look like they’re supposed to be there.
I like the off-center front knot, but you can also tie in the back if you prefer a smoother appearance.
Just Rock It
If this all seems like too much effort, rock it as is or throw on some black leggings or skinny pants, cute shoes and an awesome pair or earrings and go. The most important part is that you feel confident in what you’re wearing.
Prefer to watch the styling happen? Our video is now live on YouTube! You can’t see the top of my head for most of it, but you can see the Irma and that’s the important part 😉

Do you have LuLaRoe Littles? If so, this post is for you. In April, LuLaRoe announced that we would be saying farewell to the entire kids collection including all kids dresses, shirts, layers and skirts.
Kid’s leggings will still be available.
This move will make room for new styles coming into the warehouses (like Nicki) and give LuLaRoe a chance to take another look at the collection itself. In the short term, we are mostly likely to see kids styles pop up in special collections.
