If you’re going to a backyard barbecue
A striped matching set is easy and breezy for relaxing at an Independence Day barbecue. Keep your look patriotic by adding a matte red lip, like this favorite from Charlotte Tilbury. For accessories, go for something fun like a pom pom crossbody bag and lace-up espadrilles, then complete your look with a pair of mirrored cat-eye sunglasses (one of this season’s biggest trends).
