I've had my eye on these Rivet & Thread embroidered star jeans since Madewell released its fall lookbook in July, but they didn't pop up on the site until after the brand's daily denim promotion over the last month. But now these limited-edition cropped flares are finally available in all their patriotic glory — albeit for a higher price than my bank account would like me to pay, $225. Sigh. Darn me and my love for kitschy, cute things. 

But back to the denim at hand: I usually associate wearing the flag's colors with summer — Fourth of July and all that — but with the ongoing election fever, it feels more than apt to wear our nation's symbols as the season turns. Plus, the stars are small enough to look like any other preppy pattern. That and the very high waist, long belt loops and exterior front pockets make for one sensational pair of pants. Red, white and beautiful.
