White jeans, striped bikinis, plaid dresses — these are the things that come to mind when you think of 4th of July dressing. And while we're usually all for ditching tradition and forging our own sartorial paths, this holiday is one of the few times when we're willing to make an exception — and embrace that classic red, white and blue.
