#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Americana

There’s never been a better time to show your passion for the stars and stripes. This season we’re all about iconic Americana-inspired #AEOSTYLE, especially with bold flag prints. Define the rule of cool in T-shirts with vivid heritage graphics, printed tanks and denim from head to toe.

Three fashion bloggers—Nifesimi from Skinny Hipster, Jessica from Bows and Sequins and Saul from Trend Styled—created their own take on the Americana trend. See their looks below and let us know which is your favorite in the comments.

What inspired Nifesimi’s look:
Shorts are definitely a go to item for me during the spring and summer. I love playing with bold colors because of my skin tone. With this look, I’m wearing a color block jacket and orange lace top and nude heels to keep the look together.

What inspired Jessica’s look:
I think a lightweight white summer sweater is a closet staple each and every year! Since the open knit can be a bit, um, revealing, I wore a navy bralette underneath. On a side note, I’m kind of obsessed with bralettes. They are so comfy and add a little hint of sexy poking out from tops. Definitely a do for the summer months ahead!

Saul from Trend Styled wears the Americana trend.

What inspired Saul’s look:
Weekends are all about comfort since most of it is spent on my bike, trekking around the city. As comfortable as I like to be, style is always key. A great pair of denim goes a long way and these white washed skinny jeans are perfect for spring or summer with just enough stretch for long days on my bike. Don’t underestimate a tee—paired with some good denim and basic sneakers, you won’t be at a loss for style.
