Whether you’re sipping cocktails at a backyard barbecue or snuggling on a blanket beneath a firework display, your Fourth of July fashion and festivities should serve up a hearty dose of red, white, and blue. Read on for our Silpada-ish outfit ideas and patriotic party tips.
Dressed up or dressed down, there’s something totally timeless about these all-American hues.
Backyard Barbecue Babe
Shop it: High Authority Necklace, $199; Venice Bracelet, $39; Rich Abundance Earrings, $39; and Mosaic Ring, $99; navy shorts, similar here; white eyelet tank, similar here; wicker handbag, similar here.
Nautical navy shorts, a casual white tee and strappy wedge sandals make for an easy-breezy look that’s perfectly patriotic. Yet, no ensemble is complete without a little Silpada sparkle, so add some dimension with these versatile Sterling Silver pieces.
After the sun sets and the fireworks begin, slip into some fiery red skinny jeans, a striped blouse and a daring combination of gold and silver jewels. We love the two-toned detail of these bold baubles, paired with the hot, new Athena Bracelet from the K & R Collection!
Lady in Red
Dine alfresco with your beau in a brilliant crimson dress, pointed-toe pumps and an elegant assortment of blue and silver jewels. Contemporary shine mixes with lovely Lapis to polish off this chic, nighttime number.
Independence Day is a fun excuse to get the gang together for a celebration. Here are some fun Fourth of July ideas that will make your party pop!
The Cocktail: Red, White and Blue Sangria
There are few things more refreshing than white wine sangria in the midst of summer! Fresh blueberries, strawberries and pineapple give this cool cocktail a patriotic kick. Get the complete recipe from Recipe Girl.
The Entertainment: Patriotic Playtime
Who needs an excuse to get outside? From potato sack races to balloon darts, kids and adults will enjoy playing a few easy, outdoor games before heading off to view the fireworks. We adore these county-fair-inspired ideas from Hostess with the Mostess.
The Décor: DIY Delights
Whether you sprinkle a few American flags around your home or embark on more detailed DIY décor, there are so many ways to create a celebratory setting filled with stars and stripes. We love the oh-so-simple table runner from Domestically Speaking, crafty utensil holders from Landeelu and pretty paper stars from The Elli Blog.
