Summer Style Trend: Americana

Summer Style Trend: Americana (via Bubby and Bean)

There is something timeless about the Americana look, especially in the summertime. And right now, it's bigger than ever. To me, this look isn't about all-over blatant stars and stripes (I'd rather not look like a walking flag, thank you) as much as it's about channeling the roots of casual American style. A mixture of rustic workwear, minimalist bohemia, and even a little country - think muted shades of red/white/blue, lots of denim, and effortless-yet-put-together comfort - it's a simple style that works perfectly in the warmer months.

With summer quickly approaching (wooot!), I thought this would be the perfect time to team up once again with my friends over at Kohl's to put together some of my favorite examples of the Americana look, using items from their summer lines. The looks you see above can all be found on the Kohl's website and/or in their stores. (See details for each look below.) My favorites are #1 (the peasant top by Sonoma paired with the perfectly worn in Rock & Republic jeans is the epitome of summer style, in my eyes) and #5 (I could live in the LC Lauren Conrad maxi and Mudd panama hat all summer long).

Are you a fan of Americana style? What's your favorite look from above?

  1. I love every look here, so cute for summer!! I think number 2 is my favorite. :-)

  2. It's funny, really - I don't think that I'm consciously aware of how much our summer wardrobes are rooted in the styles of the early American working class until I see a post like this one. Trust me to take a fashion post and turn it into a history lesson, but to me, this is totally fascinating and I'm going to be thinking about it all day now :)

  3. I'd wear outfit #4 :) The flared jeans are a welcome change!

  4. Love that maxi dress and all the cute star and stripe bags!

  5. I love everything about look #3. Now if this rain would go away and summer would show up, I could wear something like that :)

  6. the dress selection is so cute!! x
