How To... Show Off Your
Star-Spangled Style

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.

Americana fashion trend

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!

Select firm ripe fruit that is heavy for its size and with the most pronounced flavor?? Wash and scald in boiling water briefly to remove the skins Immediately plunge into cold water to cool (The fruit can be left unpeeled but the skins tend to become tough when dried) ??Cut the fruit in half and discard the pits (which will if left in impart a bitter taste) If the halves are large cut each into two slices?? Submerge the peach halves in a solution of 1 teaspoon of ascorbic acid per quart of water or 1 tablespoon of sodium bisulfite or potassium metabisulfite per gallon of water Soak for 10 to15 minutes If sulfite is used the fruit may be lightly rinsed before it is placed on drying trays????

"It's kind of the crazy reality of what we deal with, but it's unfortunate,'' Kelly said. "I know Pete a little bit. He's a good guy. "LOS ANGELES -- In the fall of 1978, Jack Kent Cooke owned the Lakers, Jerry West coached them, and Kobe Bryant was a newborn. They began the season on a road trip back east, with losses at Philadelphia, New Jersey and Cleveland, the last two by only a basket. The Lakers finished that season in the Western Conference Semifinals against Seattle, and in the following year, the team was sold to Jerry Buss, drafted Magic Johnson and won the championship. Their hideous start was just a small part of a glorious process. ?????????? ????????
