The Perfect Patriotic Look
Fourth of July Fashion Jewelry
It’s almost that time of year again! With the rising temperature comes the Fourth of July. If you are looking for something patriotic to celebrate the day, why not get creative? You don’t need to pick up tacky stars and stripes jewelry! Try combining your fashion jewelry to create an all-American look.
Handcrafted jewelry is a great alternative to the commercially sold red, white, and blue accessories. The best part about wearing simple fashion jewelry is that you can wear it all year round. Why store Fourth of July accessories all year, when you can have an equally patriotic look with much more beautiful handcrafted jewelry?
Check out a few of our simple ideas:
- A mother of pearl necklace with a red shirt and blue jeans
- A red crystal glass bracelet with a blue and white manicure
- An aqua crystal necklace with a white dress and red shoes
You probably already have everything that you need in your wardrobe for a great Fourth of July look! If you have been craving some new jewelry, look for simple pieces that will work with what you already have.
If you love to dress up for holidays, try to plan a similar scheme for the entire year. Blue and white fashion jewelry can be great later in the season for winter parties, as can red and green accessories. T-shirts with flags or snowflakes have their place but, if you are looking for something more for office parties or formal events, you will definitely want a more elegant look.
Do you remember way back to civics class when you learned what red, white, and blue stand for? Maybe you can impress your friends and family with this tidbit.
- Red: Red stands for bravery and valor.
- White: White symbolizes innocence and purity.
- Blue: Blue embodies justice, vigilance, and perseverance.
On top of just being fun trivia, you can use this info for gift giving. If you need to buy gifts around the Fourth of July, you can incorporate these colors and the ideas that they symbolize. If you want to congratulate someone for her perseverance, why not get her a handmade piece of blue fashion jewelry? If you know someone going through a difficult time, a red piece of handcrafted jewelry can be a great pick-me-up.
Choosing a color based on its significance shows that you put a bit of extra time into your gift purchase so consider it next to time you need to pick up something special.
