MODERN AMERICANA

We can always think of a reason that we're proud to be Americans - and we don't mind showing this on our sleeves, quite literally ;) That being said, we are super excited that we got to take part in Shopbop's latest Spring trend campaign, sporting the Spring trend that is 'Modern Americana'. This Spring trend is all about bringing back the classic American staples, like gingham, polka dots, all colors red, white, and blue, stripes, and lots of denim. Check out how we sport two 'Modern Americana' looks in very different, yet simultaneously patriotic, ways at (and around) the infamous Coffee Shop located in NYC's Union Square. What's more American than an old fashion, classic restaurant like this?

SOPHIE'S LOOK:

I am V into the pant suit trend and decided that I would rock this awesome, and very patriotic, Rag & Bone pant suit for my 'modern Americana' look. This paint suit obviously comes in two separate parts, the Rag & Bone 'Howson' striped blazer and the matching Rag & Bone 'Savoy' striped pants. The best thing about a pant suit is that you don't always have to wear the two pieces together, you can easily mix and match the blazer and pants with other outfits, making the purchase of this pant suit well worth it based on how versatile it can be. The pant suit and Americana trends are not the only trends in right now (duh, lol), stripes (of any sort) are also very in right now too. For my look, I combined all of three of these trends to create a totally awesome outfit that I could wear 100 times over and one that is perfect for the beginning of Spring.

Finishing off my look was super easy, with the business of my pantsuit, there was not much else I could add to the outfit besides white pieces, without making it look like a disaster. That being said, I threw on basic a Project Social T white crew neck tee shirt underneath my blazer and tucked it into the pants and a pair of simple, yet oh so fabulous, Rag & Bone white boots, giving me some height and creating a pop of white color to my look. Finally, since my hair was up in my favorite hairstyle aka space buns, which I'm sure you've seen on me before, I sported a pair of gorgeous Jules Smith 'Cher' earrings. Shoutout to my dear friend & hairstylist, Janais Lopez, for always making my hair look so on FLEEK, especially my space buns!!! Ever need a hairstylist who I can guarantee will make you look amazing, she is your girl!!! <3

CHARLOTTE'S LOOK:

For my 'modern Americana' look I went with an outfit that totally fit my vibe. In my opinion, less is more when sporting this new Spring trend and Soph and I played off patriotic colors & things that reminded us of America to choose looks that were polished, unique, but complimentary to each other at the same time. I chose to sport the fabulously fun and flirty Mother 'Faster' letterman patch faux fur bomber jacket! I love the bold patches on the back and sleeve and the sporty look of this faux fur bomber. The edges of the sleeves have red, white, and blue stripes giving the jacket a patriotic feel! Also, I'm obsessed with how the back of the jacket reads "Faster"...V American ;) I paired this fab bomber with my 'The Insider' crop fray jeans also by Mother. I love the broken in look of these jeans and of course the flame design on the hem is beyond HOT and goes with my fast (and furious) themed outfit!

Under my jacket I wore by Winona cropped sweater by Again. The red, white, and blue colors of this sweater were on point with my outfit because they added a classic, truly American looking piece to my otherwise bold & different look. I finished my ensemble with a very versatile, and comfortable, pair of Steven by Steve Madden 'Futures' sling backs pumps in a gorge shade of blush & a pair of classic gold hoop earrings, which are always in style. Soph and I had such a fun day rocking this awesome new Spring 'modern Americana' trend. A trend that is on point on and off the runaway and one you must get your hands on!!
