Summer officially starts on June 21, but the Fourth of July is when things really start to heat up. Whether you like to immerse yourself in the patriotic nostalgia of the holiday, or just enjoy hanging out with friends and family at a barbecue,you can add a little pizzazz to your Independence Day attire to really make a bang.
Subtle Spangled Banner
Maybe you’re not the kind of guy who would wear a red, white, and blue jumpsuit, but you still want to show your patriotic pride. These American flag cufflinks may be just the thing for you. They may be small, but they’re no understatement, with silver plating and mother-of-pearl decoration for a refined appeal. A swivel T-bar closure helps them stay in place on your cuffs, where those who are attentive can notice. Matched with a light blue straight-collar dress shirt and a red tie, everyone will know where you stand without ever having to say a word.
Savor the Date
The Fourth of July is on a Saturday this year, and weekend holidays are the perfect time for weddings and other formal functions. If you’re heading to a daytime event, do a lightweight, neutral-tone outfit, such as a tan linen/cotton suit and and a light pink shirt, accented by a navy silk tie and pocket square. If the gathering will take place in the evening, keep your ensemble dark and dignified, such as an indigo double-breasted suit with a white dress shirt and colorfully patterned tie. Whatever you choose, preserve your playful personality with a pair of silver-plated corkscrew cufflinks that will help you toast the occasion.
Everyone knows that bowties are cool, and none are cooler than neckwear sporting fun images of your favorite cold treats. Whether you’re heading out to a backyard food-fest or just want something to lighten the office mood on July 3rd, the triple-flavor ice cream cones on this blue bow tie are sure to do the trick. If you don’t know how to tie it, you can read our instructions – or go with the necktie version. Both are made of Italian silk, and they’ll each show off your summer cheer. If you’re looking for something to wear underneath it, try a red-and-blue checked dress shirt with a button-down collar.
