This November has been the month of crazy weather, loads of schoolwork and American politics. Though the elections have come and gone, this Fashionista’s look captures a classic American spirit that never goes out of season.
I'll admit I have always been a sucker for the classic American laid back look, especially in fall. Think quintessential prepster with influences of blue-collar work wear. Actually…think Take Ivy. As if taking direct cues from Ralph Lauren himself, this Fashionista incorporates the American essentials in her blue denim, tailored gingham and knee high leather.
But to really capture the American style, it takes more than iconic patterns and color. Rather, it takes a laid-back confidence and beauty that ultimately captures the Americana spirit. Take note of this Fashionista’s effortless but tame pony that keeps her look casual and comfortable, while staying polished. For a similar look, try a spritz of Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray in your damp hair before letting it dry. It will give your pony the perfect no fuss volume without becoming flat and dull. Better yet, ponytails don’t just have to be an on-the-go hairstyle: they can also suit nicer occasions and events. Take your day pony into night by conditioning the rebel strands with a dab of leave-in conditioner.
Having American style doesn’t have to mean sporting the flag loud and proud. Follow this Fashionista's lead. With a couple of wardrobe classics and effortless ponies, you too will be flaunting a little American spirit.
