Here's the thing that has made me cringe over the years about dressing for holidays, it's usually done in a way that just screams bad fashion. It took me several years to figure out that it can be done in a chic and stylish way.

The best part is that it probably will work any day of the year not just the 4th of July. I wore this out to dinner the other day and I totally got the stamp of approval from my handsome guy. The key is keeping the red or blue the accent color. Since I have way more blue and white in my closet, I went for a redish purse (I know it looks more coral in these pictures) as the accent.
