One of Spring/Summer 2012′s key trends is inspired by our fashionable friends across the pond. Think red, white and blue, the star spangled banner and fast food – this summer, we’ll all be wearing Americana.

Celebs are already embracing the trend – we LOVE Ashley Tisdale’s cute, Disney-inspired look while Republic fave Jesy Nelson works it with a street style look and star-spangled holdall bag. Cute!

The trend

The Americana trend is all about cute prints, retro styling and vintage-inspired pieces. Look for washed out colours and embellishment for a rock ‘n’ roll feel, or go for 1950s shapes and printed headscarves to give your outfit a kitsch edge.

Key colours, prints and fabrics

Red, white and blue, stars and stripes, dark denim and lightweight cotton.

Key pieces

High waisted jeans, shirts tied at the waist, crop tops, off the shoulder baggy vests, hi-top sneakers.
