summer style watch: americana

It seems like patriotism is running rampant through the clothes, shoes, and accessories being shown for this summer.

Now while some may blame it on the *controversial* election in November (to put it lightly), I am more inclined to blame a certain pack of elite supermodel-socialites.

Gigi, Kendall, and Bella are the Cindy, Naomi, and Kate of our generation. Chased by paparazzi to every event, making headlines for their new boyfriends, and landing almost every major brand’s latest campaigns- it’s no surprise their style is influential to mainstream brands.

Although these ladies divulge in countless styles (they’re even brining back little 90’s sunglasses), their love of Calvin Klein, Tommy jeans, band tees, and leather jackets and denim is undeniable.

Exhibit A: Gigi for Guess (who she signed with when she was like, three years old??). Her All-American look paired with Guess’s iconic denim is a match made in heaven.

Exhibit B: Bella’s street style

Honestly, this girl could do no wrong in my book. She can make a denim skirt look chic.

Exhibit C: The whole clan and their fellow supermodel friends walking in Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring/Summer 2017 Read to Wear Collection.

THE FOCUS:

  • Denim!!!!!
  • Classic, clean lines and structure
  • Minimal detail: ruffles, pearls, bows
  • Stripes
  • Gingham
  • Red, white, and blue baby

Recently, I noticed some of my favorite brands and online retailers lookin’ extra American lately, and I’m not opposed. What’s more summer than wearing a shirt resembling a picnic table and a worn pair of blue jeans??
