Dress like it’s your patriotic duty! Americana style is trending now and that means down-home denim goodness, paired with comfort and simplicity. Think about your grandma’s apple pie, sparklers on the front lawn and carving your first love’s initials into that old oak tree. Americana pairs nostalgia with fashion-forward trends that reflect iconic individualism. Throw on your boyfriend jeans and your best comfort tee. Add some stars and stripes and light that firecracker, baby!
