How To... Show Off Your
Whether you’re an all-out patriot or simply a fan of Lana Del Rey, it’s impossible to ignore the Americana trend. Lace up your sneakers and put on some denim with these simple ways to adopt red, white and blue for yourself.
Step 1: Glitz up your nails
Add a starry finish to any manicure with this silver glitter topcoat ($5, Sephora). Want to take it a step further? Try a fireworks effect over navy blue polish with our gradient nails tutorial.
Step 2: Pump up your kicks
What could be more classic than Chuck Taylor high tops? Add a little rock 'n' roll to your look with these patriotically patterned sneakers ($65, Converse Americana Collection). These kicks would look fantastic with your favorite jeans and a simple top.
Step 3: Jam out
Forget the crop-top trend and grab one of these fitted MTV tanks ($13, Old Navy). Boldly wear this bright white top to showcase your summer tan — and it's safe to machine wash!
Step 4: Add a screen siren pout
Shoulder pads, sequined tops or petticoats — no matter what fashion era, the red lip is here to stay. Be utterly smoochable with this best-selling Russian Red hue ($15, MAC).
Step 5: Shrug on a jacket
Is there anything that says Americana more than classic Levi's? Be original and ditch the jeans. Instead, don a lightly distressed denim jacket, ($70, Levi's). It will never go out of style!
