4th of July Look + Popsicle Wristlet

1000 544 Brighter BOLD by Cara Newhart

Nothing says "Let's celebrate America" quite like drinking beer and playing with explosives. If you haven't decided how you'll be sporting the red, white, and blue this Tuesday, here's a fun outfit idea to give you a little inspo. I've also linked some more of my favorite picks for putting together a super cute 4th of July outfit.

THE WRISTLET

This popsicle wristlet is from Charming Charlie and not available online anymore, but they also have a couple super cute American flag wristlets here and here. If you're set on the popsicle theme, you can get the popsicle print cross-body here.

THE RED

This top is from H&M, and it's currently on sale! I love that the thin straps keep things light for the likely hot weather. It has a smocked fitted waist and the lower section is gently flared to add or accentuate shape. There's a sheer overlay to add movement and interest, but it's jersey lined and super soft. I'm also a huge fan of the raw edges, especially at the neckline. 

My 4th of July look would never be complete without a pop of red lipstick. This one is the blu-red shade by Lipsense, and stays all day so I can go all in on the burgers and popsicles. Here are some of my other favorite picks for a red top:

THE WHITE 

I went with white as an accent color via my bandana, my sandals, and the popsicle wristlet. I love this bandana because it has the classic red, white and blue, but also a pop of coral. The red is also a deep burgandy hue instead of the usual bright red, so its perfect for adding a pop of patriotism without going all in.

These sandals have a floral cut-out design that feels a little like lace. I really love the shape, and actually initially bought them for my Hawaii wedding trip. White is also a perfect option for a top if red isn't your color, or you're just really looking to stay cool. Here are some of my picks for accessories to wear as pops of white & white tops:

THE BLUE

Denim is the obvious way to style blue for the 4th. I went with some classic blue denim for this look, but with a fun bleached star print to keep it festive. I actually found these jeans on super sale and can't find them anywhere to link, but some similar pairs are here, here, and here. I actually like some of these alternatives better because some of them are more distressed / a crop pant so they will be better for staying cool.

You can shop the options below, plus some similarly styled shorts & overalls if you're going to be some place pretty hot:
