Independence Day is just around the corner and if you’re spending it by water, you’re doing it right! Whether it’s high or low on your favorite holiday list, it’s almost irresistible to wear the classic red, white, and blue. Yes, even on your swimsuit!

How To Wear Lime Ricki on the Fourth

With any summer celebration comes important outfit decisions! You definitely don’t want to be changing clothes all day, but different activities sometimes do require specific outfits. I don’t know about you, but I often spend my 4th doing all kinds of different activities, from watching the neighborhood parade in the morning, to swimming in the afternoon, to barbecuing with family and friends in the evening, not to mention the fireworks after dark!

To help you plan your looks for every activity, here are our favorite patriotic color stories for your Fourth of July festivities.

Ocean Gingham

If you know Lime Ricki, you know we absolutely LOVE gingham, so this is our number one recommendation. The bralette is perfect for layering underneath in the morning, then you're ready with your swim top when it's time to cool off in the afternoon! Whether you’re watching fireworks on the beach or taking a dip in the pool, the gingham prints from our Calico Collection are ready to match your H2O activities! If it was up to us, the American flag would be gingham. Should we start a petition?

Poppy Dots

Feeling bold this Fourth of July? Make a statement in our Poppy Dots print! You can keep it classic and sporty in our Bralette and Boy Short combo, or lounge by the pool in one of our flirty and feminine peplum swim tops. Try the shorts with a cute blue top or classic white tee, or maybe pair the peplum top with your favorite denim shorts. Either way, you'll stand out in this infectious poppy red.

May Flowers

For all of our floral print lovers out there, now is the time to let it bloom! Our May Flowers print from our Poppy Collection is perfect for picnics and pool-side snow cones. It doesn’t get more Fourth of July than that! Keep it classic in our best selling Knotted One-Piece or have some print mixing fun in our May Flowers Cross-Back Crop.


Maybe bold colors and print mixing aren’t your thing—and that’s okay! You can still celebrate the Fourth of July in a sleek monochromatic swim look. Our solid Indigo pieces from our Hillside Collection pair perfectly with fireworks, sparklers, and friends on the beach! If you’re chasing your little ones or playing some family fun volleyball, the Lace-Back Crop is our MOST supportive swim top. The highly adjustable straps keep everything in place for every adventure.

Sunset Stripe

Red, white, and pink please! If you don’t like being too on the nose, our Sunset Stripe print from our Palm Springs Collection is a fun and unique approach for your Fourth festivities. Sport those festive horizontal stripes in our Ruched One-Piece or mix it up in our vertical stripe Cage Bralette.

Mix & Match Swimwear for Every Activity

The best part of these color stories? You can mix and match every single one of them and create a look all your own. Indigo and Sunset Stripes, Ocean Gingham and Poppy Dots, Indigo and Poppy Dots... the possibilities are endless! Which combo would you match together?


What will you be doing and, more importantly, what will you be wearing on the 4th of July this year?
