Showing off your stars and stripes on Independence Day doesn't have to mean donning a cheesy Uncle Sam top hat or Born in the USA T-shirt. There are ways to work the spirit of the holiday into your outfit without looking like you belong in a Fourth of July parade. Try pieces that incorporate the traditional colors in more muted tones or an unexpected print and people will be oohing and aahing over your ensemble as much as the fireworks. If you want a red, white and blue outfit that doesn't take the all-American theme too literally, check out our 10 non-kitschy patriotic pieces.
