Just like fireworks and hot dogs, festive clothing is essential for celebrating the Fourth of July. But let's face it, Independence Day and fashion don't exactly go hand in hand. You're more likely to associate the holiday with cheesy graphic tees than a cute dress you might actually wear when the weekend is through.
Upon further investigation, though, it turns out that there are, in fact, ways to rock stars and stripes in style. In fact, with so many fashionable, affordable options to choose from, you'll be all set for every day of the long weekend.
Just be careful with that mustard.
