If there was ever a weekend to don your most festive finds in red, white and blue, this is it. You don’t have to look like a walking American flag, but there’s no reason why you can’t show your patriotic side. We’ve put together a look that’s stylish and sexy, yet still casual enough to wear at the weekend’s most boisterous backyard barbecues.
First things first: don a pair of denim capris or denim mini skirt and a super soft white T-shirt (check out our guide for the Best Tees to find the right one for you). This is one of the most comfortable combos to don in the heat, and of course, it’s the perfect all-American, girl next door ensemble.
As for accessories, this is where to play up stars and stripes. These adorable Joie ‘China Girl’ Flats with red and white stripes are just the thing to add some color to your look. To add some sparkle that will turn the fireworks green with envy, sport jewel-embellished star jewelry in gold. These Star Dangle Earrings from Erica Anenberg are a great start.
In your big, blue beach tote bring along your Stars & Stripes String Bikini for those occasional dips in the pool, a pair of sunglasses to ward off the rays (we suggest these celebrity favorites: the Tom Ford Whitneys), and don’t forget the sunscreen.
