Dressing for Independence Day can be a bit dicey. Choose to celebrate sans red, white or blue and you miss out on all the festive fun. Too many stars and stripes, though, and you wind up looking a bit more like decorative flag bunting than the stylish person you are. The key is moderation. Choose one bright standout piece in a patriotic color, then keep everything else minimal or neutral. It’s a look you can adopt for the Fourth right through summer’s end.
