The American Dream

A key trend this Summer is Americana: think cheerleaders, stars and stripes, western denim, Glee, American football, Alexa Chung.

Primarily a casual trend, the look is relaxed and baggy with hints of bodycon. Cropped tees can be layered over a body, casual shorts can be worn with wedge boots. Denim is pale or bright blue-washed. Throw on some knee high socks and a sports style bag and you're good to go!
