What to Wear 4th of July Weekend

While you’re busy making plans for 4th of July weekend, we’re busy planning what to wear! With summer in full swing and the weather warming up, we’ve thought up the perfect casual weekend wear for beach BBQs and backyard pool parties.

For those heading to the beach or a pool party, we recommend a casual tank top, jean shorts layered over a cute bikini, (red, white, and blue of course). Accessorize with trendy American flag jewelry like our US flag dog tag pendant necklace and cuff bracelet.

If you’re spending the day at a family BBQ or city block party, a stylish, yet casual outfit will do the trick. We’ve paired a sheer sleeveless blouse with a pair of long shorts and accessorized with a stylish American flag heart pendant necklace and cuff.

Personal Style: Work Your Way Up

One of the best pieces of career advice is to “dress the part” or dress like you belong there since how you look shapes the way you’re perceived. If you work at a law office, you want to give off an air of professionalism with the blouses, button-ups and blazers. And if you’re working at a less-stiff work environment, you have a little more wiggle room. But in either case, accessories and jewelry can be used to your advantage in building your personal style and adding an understated element of “fun” to your look.

Check out 1928′s collection of badge holder necklaces like the adorable butterfly below and our Downton Abbey hair pin sets to help you dress the part in style!
