The Non-Cheesy Way to Rock Stars and Stripes

Remember the days, back in elementary school, when dressing for the Fourth of July was as easy as slipping on your Old Navy flag tee, red Soffe shorts and hitting the playground? However, as an adult, sporting stars and stripes can feel like a costume or worse, like you're moonlighting as a home ec teacher. Instead of dreading a 3-day weekend packed with brunches, BBQs, and days on the beach try rocking the starred and striped pieces fashion girls love to wear all year long. Even if your plans only include reading a book on your fire escape with a stack of magazines and a bottle of wine (or two, it is America's birthday after all), you can still dress to celebrate.
