Wearing the Red-White-and-Blue

Flower Child
Petal Bandeau bathing suit; $80,
Lucky for you, retro suits are trendy in a big way. Camouflage any trouble spots while still looking chic in this one-piece stunner.
High Heels and Pearls
Faux-pearl headband; $3.80,
Thanks to Gossip Girl, headbands are in vogue once again. But it’s pretty much impossible to pull off the gigantic-bow look when you’re over age 14. This subdued piece is still stylish and more wearable.
Perfect Pout
Perfect Rouge lipstick by Shiseido in Dragon; $25,
Red lips are a great way to play up a simple outfit, and they pair perfectly with summer’s neutral makeup. Accentuate your great tan with a simple, slicked-back ponytail and precisely applied red lipstick. Our top pick is the Perfect Rouge collection from Shiseido, which goes on like a gloss but stays put like a stain.
