The perfect outfit is perfectly proportioned. But what about the proportion of clothing to jewelry? This Independence Day, embrace your sparkly side and create an outfit that shines as bright as the fireworks by adding more than a few pieces of bling.

Start with a simple red, white and blue ensemble. A pair of blue jeans and a lightweight tee keep things classic and are easily punched up by a red jacket. The versatility of this outfit means that the footwear options are endless, although sandals or loafers are a good place to start.

Finally, layer on the bling. The star shape of these Kismet earrings and necklace pay homage to the Independence Day theme. Their dark color also ties in nicely with the dark wash of the denim. A fun Samira 13 fringe bracelet adds a final layer of playfulness to the look.
