Classic and Cute: Timeless All American Styles

Make the most of your summer with cute, timeless styles that can be mixed and matched all season long. Whether you’re hanging in the sun, surf, or sand, we’re serving classic looks and All-American vibes. Swimwear for the fam? Check. Cover-ups and vacation must-haves? Definitely. Accessories to match? Of course! Get ready for your most stylish summer yet.

Denim Dreams

Is there any style more American than denim? From work-wear to the red carpet, blue jeans look great just about anywhere. Make denim a summer staple with pieces specifically tailored to warm weather; shorts, skirts, and capri pants are go-to options that can be dressed up or kept super casual. Can’t bear to tuck away your favorite pair of jeans for three months? No problem — cuff the legs of women’s jeans to instantly “summer-ize” long pants.

When it comes to pairing tops with denim bottoms, the possibilities are endless. We love a classic white tee tucked into high-waisted shorts or a fitted skirt. Add flannel and sneakers for daytime errands or a flowy floral cardigan and strappy sandals for evening cocktails. Feeling extra retro? Denim overalls are back in a big way! Check out standard fits, skinny-legged varieties, and short and skirt options. Stay cool in the summer heat by wearing tank tops, bodysuits, or cropped T-shirts with your overalls.

Denim also makes for a versatile swimsuit cover-up; long jeans, shorts, skirts, and overalls can be worn over a one-piece or two-piece suit. Easily move from the beach to the café by throwing on a pair of denim shorts and sandals. Look for dresses, long-sleeved button-ups, or maxi skirts made with lighter denim material to keep you comfy while lounging lakeside.

Red, White, and Blue

From Memorial Day cookouts to Fourth of July fireworks to Labor Day parades, you can never go wrong by rocking red, white, and blue. Go bold with deep, classic hues or play it subtle; a lightweight chambray shirt paired with red-colored shorts, or capri pants is a nice look for backyard BBQs or fireworks at the park.

For holiday pool parties, stay on theme with red and blue swimsuits. Tankini styles allow for mixing and matching solid colors and patterns so that you can create your perfect patriotic fit. Want the whole family to match? Check out sizing for women, men, and kids and keep everyone ready for poolside fun.

Summer Dresses

Nothing screams seasonal style quite like a fun summer dress — so go ahead and say YES to this quintessential closet staple. There is a dress out there for everyone, whether you like them mini, midi, or maxi. Frankly, we recommend all of the above! For brunch with your besties, try a maxi-length dress; a long, loose skirt will keep you comfy during a long visit over pancakes and mimosas. If a backyard family cookout is on the agenda, go for a mid-length cut that will move with you as you help prepare food and mingle with extended family. If evening cocktails are calling, throw on that mini dress and your dancing shoes. For truly timeless style, look for simple lines and solid colors that can be worn year after year. Level up a basic dress with on-trend shoes, jewelry, or scarves.

Early in the season, or as nights get chilly, you can easily add a denim jacket, chambray shirt, or cardigan to your summer dress to stay comfy outdoors. With solid-colored T-shirts or polo dresses, use a flannel to chase away the chill and rock some retro grunge vibes while you’re at it. Patterned dresses always look great with a coordinating cardigan or a button-up shirt tied at the waist.

Play With Patterns

Classic patterns like stripes, polka dots, gingham, and florals have stood the test of time — and we see no reason to believe they won’t continue to do so! Incorporate patterned tunic tops, dresses, and swimsuits into your wardrobe for effortless All-American flair. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out summer-specific patterns like sailboats, sea creatures, and citrus fruits. Wear patterned tops with jeans, khakis, or solid-colored skirts for balance.

Rock Those Accessories

As the summer sun scorches, you’ll definitely need a great pair of sunglasses. The best part about this particular accessory? There’s no need to play it safe with inexpensive glasses — go for big, bold frames, bright colors, and retro styles. Be sure to store a pair in your purse, your weekend bag, your car, and everywhere in between! Speaking of purses and bags, switch out neutral colors for brighter styles as the weather warms up while sticking to classic shapes—pack beach bags with monogrammed towels for a timeless touch that’s always appreciated.

A timeless wardrobe doesn’t happen overnight. Build your collection of classic pieces at a natural pace, with an emphasis on quality, versatility, and your personal tastes. Mix and match closet staples with fun trends for a look that lasts.
