Trend Watch: American Heritage

This fall channel your patriotism into your fashion picks.

By Eden Dawn August 6, 2012


The sun may be beating down on us this week, but we all know it’s just for a hot minute. In the blink of an eye fall will be here and it’s time to start thinking about looking for those autumn purchases. When you think fall, think American Heritage.

Girls should embrace the great outdoors with rustic tweeds, denim, wool, canvas, and leather. Traditional prints and styles of plaids, tartans, checkers, equestrian jackets, shearling, Fair Isle sweaters and layers all get the high fashion treatment for the season. Think earthy hues and steer clear from swathing yourself in straight up red, white and blue.

Quick summary: If it looks like something you could wear in a fashionable Western, it’s a pretty safe bet.
