You CAN do American classics...it's quite simple to take on the trend. Why are heritage brands like Levi's, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Pendleton, and Minnetonka in the spotlight? Because they appeal to our yearning for authenticity, craftsmanship, and timelessness. I love this look because on some level we all share the fantasy of being founders, pioneers, and explorers, and we feel a part of the American Dream in these iconic patterns and silhouettes. And as we know, dreaming is a lot of what fashion is all about. Whether you choose a slinky dress that recalls the graphics on a Navajo blanket or a bomber jacket that makes you feel like Amelia Earhart, these comfortably stylish pieces dress up your weekend options.
How to Pull it Off...
1. These pieces are perfect for fall weekends. A patterned mini would pair nicely with a chunky turtleneck and flat boots or brogues.
2. If you want to look more sophisticated, combine a luxe bag and oversize sunglasses with a blanket-patterned coat. This look says "I'm down-to-earth and fabulous at the same time.
