What's Behind the Americana Aesthetic?

Hey, BK Fam! We know that Independence Day is right around the corner and that’s why we want to fill you in on the latest about the Americana Trend. Found in everything from fashion to furniture, the Americana trend is about embracing all things in classic American style.

Whether that’s just rocking red, white, and blue or a laid-back denim look, this trend is not limited to one definition of what America is – it looks back and embraces all traditional American styles and American culture.

We love this trend because of how it allows you to embrace a more rustic look while still feeling comfy! In this style you can still enjoy American denim with casual but still high-quality pieces.


All About Americana Streetwear 

The essence of Americana fashion and Brooklyn Cloth are along the same lines: creating both practical, comfortable, and high-quality styles. Especially with Fourth of July right around the corner, there is no better time to celebrate in style with Americana streetwear and swimwear.

What sets apart the Americana trend from the rest is that it is how timeless it is. Truly, Americana themed pieces will never go out of style and will stand the test of time. For this summer and beyond, Brooklyn Cloth has all of the Americana styles you could ask for!


Our Favorite Americana-Inspired Styles for Summer


A Laid-Back Fourth of July Shirt

Split Woven Red, White, and Blue Shirt

Looking for the perfect shirt for a backyard barbecue this Fourth of July? We have you covered with our timeless Split Flag Woven Shirt in Red, White, and Blue. In true Americana style, this flag embraces the flag in a wraparound pattern with stars on one side and stripes on the other half.

However, this shirt isn’t just limited to wearing on holidays – it’s a dope way to bring a pop of color and pattern into your wardrobe. This summer, whether you're chilling at the beach or hanging out on the boardwalk, this shirt is great to wear on top.

If you prefer a laidback look for the beach, we suggest that you opt for wearing this shirt open matched with a pair of swim or knit shorts. There is no better way to feel patriotic than with this class style that is great for dressing up or down. If you’re looking for a more casual look, we suggest pairing this top with a pair of ripped jeans or jogger pants and your favorite pair of high-top white sneakers.


All About Americana Swim Shorts

Red, White, and Blue Americana Stripe Swim Shorts

If you’re planning to spend this Fourth of July weekend swim side, we suggest checking out our Red, White, and Blue Americana Swim Shorts. True to the name of the trend, these swim shorts encompass everything about classically American style. An ode to the flag, this style is for those of us that prefer a more subtle Americana Style.

Although these shorts are perfect for Independence Day, we think that because this look is a little more toned down, you’ll surely get good use of them all summer long. These swim shorts are neutral enough to be paired with a neutral graphic tee or rash guard for this summer, but dope enough for a bold look.


Low-Key Americana Blue Shorts

French Navy 7" Solid Knit Shorts

Although we always love stars and stripes, we get that some prefer a more low-key Americana look. Playing around with red, white, and blue in your wardrobe is something that is simple and makes an Americana look even easier to achieve.

Super comfortable and stylish, these knit shorts are a great way to add a pop of color into your look without going too out of your comfort zone. If you’re going for a more laid-back look, we suggest styling these shorts with your favorite red or white tee like our White Printed Space Dye Tee.


Star-Spangled Swim Shorts

Red Ditsy Flag Swim Shorts

So, you really want to show your patriotic spirit this holiday weekend? We’ve got you covered with our super stylish Red Ditsy Flag Swim Shorts. This new original graphic features a cool allover pattern that is sure to stand out in the crowd.

These shorts are great for all of your summer needs and feature both an elastic waistband and drawstring to make sure that you feel secure in your look no matter where or what you have in store for your day.


Stars, Sun, and Surfing

Red, White, and Blue Split Short Sleeve Rash Guard

For summer days in the sun you’ll surely want a rash guard and some SPF to keep your skin protected all day long. When you’re out lounging in the sand or surfing the best waves you’ve ever seen, we don’t want you to worry about your style.

Feel and look your best no matter where you’re headed this summer in the most comfortable rash guards by Brooklyn Cloth. We know what you’re thinking, aren’t rash guards a thing of the past. To that we’d say they are anything but out-of-style. Rash guards are great way to add an extra layer of protection from the sun.

In addition to being a great way to enjoy your day without worrying about getting burnt, rash guards are yet another way to add style into your beach look. Now, beachwear isn’t all about shorts and rash guards allow you to bring your look to the next level.

We here at Brooklyn Cloth know that it can be hard to stay up to date on the latest trends, so we hope this guide has helped you find out more about the Americana Trend. Whether you plan to sport just red, white, and blue or an entirely flag-inspired design, we hope you always feel confident and comfortable.
