So sit back, unbutton your jacket, release your tie and allow me to introduce Lis Collins! Lis...they are all yours.....
Ah, 4th of July. Time for burgers and barbecuing, parades and streamers and fireworks of course! It's the one time of year you can dress like a flag and get away with it. But who wants to look like a flag? Thanks Betsy Ross, but no thanks. Here are a few patriotic options, sans flag.In the 5 boroughs there are two events that are synonymous with 4th of July. Start your day off right at Coney Island and watch master eaters devour hot dogs. End it in style at Hudson Terrace rooftop with a few cocktails.

The ketchup may be flying, but with this red gingham buttondown from Asos, you've nothing to worry about!
These crisp white shorts from Aubin & Willis are prone to folly but don't worry, we've got you covered.
No one looks cool with a sunburn. Keep the sun off your face with this panama hat from Barneys and shades by SUPER.
Navy Chuck Taylors and a subtly patriotic belt tie the look together and have you set till sundown. Don't eat too many hot dogs!
Sundown means fireworks! The display over the Hudson is one of the biggest in the country. Formerly over the East River, it was moved to the west side of Manhattan in 2009, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the area. A prime location for watching the hullabaloo is the Hudson Terrace, right on the water. You're gonna want to step up your outfit for evening- check out what we've got for you.
Red slacks from Rag and Bone spice up the ensemble and 4th of July is a great excuse to wear red pants!
The show starts at 9:20 and you don't want to miss a moment. Be prompt with these appropriately colored watches from Nixon.
Pierre Hardy Chukkas will keep you looking fresh throughout the night and a blazer from Oliver Spencer will keep away any river chills.
Top the look off with a smart tie from UO, and fun cufflinks from Paul Smith and you're ready to go!
Happy 4th of July everyone!
