The best accessories for your July 4th festivities
Red T baseball cap
Independence Day is all about flaunting your national pride, and a patriotic sartorial color palette’s the easiest way to do just that. Of course, moderation is key here—take things too far, and suddenly you’re looking less like a proud American and more like, well, an American flag on legs.
An all-American topper in an all-American color palette.
