What to Wear . . . July 4th Cookout

This summer is flying by, right? The 4th of July — a.k.a. National Cookout Day — is this Thursday, and if you haven’t already planned out an outfit that’ll score maximum style points and beat the heat — we’ve got you covered.

There’s been a hot and hazy heatwave along the East Coast and in other areas for the last couple of weeks that doesn’t appear to be letting up any time soon. So, comfort is of the utmost importance, especially if you’ll be hanging outside for most of the day. Light, airy layers and shorts are your best bet. And if you must accessorize, keep your jewelry minimal. Otherwise, you’ll be cursing Mother Nature by your second helping of burnt hot dogs, if you decide to pile on chunky accessories.
