11 Accessories For The Fourth Of July That'll Look Patriotic Without Being Cheesy

The Fourth of July is one of the best, most laid back holidays of the year, but I will say that when it comes to dressing up for this special day, it's easy to go overboard.

If you're looking to add small touches of patriotism to your ensemble, consider these 10 accessories that are great for the Fourth of July.
