Americana- The American flag continues to be a force to be reckoned with as a fashion inspiration. From top designers to great knock-offs, red, white, blue, star, and stripe patterns prevail.
NYC Rules- Particularly,“I Love NY” t-shirts, a cheesy remnant from the seventies have been on a trend upswing for a while since teen queens have taken a scissor and deconstructed the tight T’s into little bits of style.
Military Chic- Ne’er a fashion runway missed the military look. From camouflage prints, sailor stripes, to unbelievable olive drab tailoring the military brat rocks. Unless you are about to enlist, don’t go total troop trend, just the nuance please. Hate designer shops? The local army and navy store has fashion o’plenty, if you have an open eye.
Stud Puppy- Hard-edged punk rock influence from studded handbags and belts to industrial zippers play up the tough girl “don’t mess with me” rock star image. And right now, no one wants to be messed with. Style on.
