Want to show your American pride—or your Americana #AEOSTYLE, as the case may be? American Eagle Outfitters has so many products guaranteed to help you do just that. We’re starry eyed over new takes on red, white and blue styles from old school Americana trends including denim overalls and boho-inspired tops to dip-dyed intarsia sweaters.

On our Spring 2014 photo shoot in San Francisco, our Director of Styling, Preston, took a break to show us one of his favorite looks – a burnout Americana T-shirt worn by Chyanne. He paired the Faded Flag Tank with a Skinny Jean in a light destroyed wash and a pair of cool printed Slip-On Sneakers, perfect for Chyanne to wear while she’s out shredding the streets. Preston continued channeling the California vibe with pops of color from a knit beanie and mint sunglasses (mint is one of the hottest colors for spring).

A bold, rugged plaid shirt. Destroyed jeans. Nothing channels iconic Seattle style quite like these two classics teamed together.  Keep things feeling rugged with a pair of seriously seasoned Thorogood boots, just launching at AEO and designed in grunge-worthy oil-tanned leather.

Our Director of Styling, Preston, shows you how to wear the rugged trend for Back to School. Want an urban-inspired look that you can wear anywhere? Try the combination of khaki and indigo. Start with a slim 5-pocket jean in workwear-inspired khaki, then add a quilted navy vest and an easy chambray shirt. These pieces look great together but you can also wear them on their own. Triple duty!
