American style is inimitable, classic and transcends time. This July 4th, we raise a toast to the most iconic summer pieces in our country’s collective wardrobe: chinos, structured shorts, easy dresses, button-downs, tees and perfect denim. But it’s the way you wear them that truly brings the American spirit. A few things to keep in mind:

#1 Fit is everything. Settle for nothing less than a tailored feel off the rack, especially when it comes to your pants. Sloan brings out the best in every unique body shape with an effortless sensibility, perfect for the woman on the go.

#2 Choose breezy summer shirts crafted with the best materials, like Supima® cotton, silk and cashmere. Make an entrance. Keep your cool.

#3 Stand for something epic and get noticed. For her: Own one great-fitting suit and a dress that sculpts your body. For him: Find your swagger in the ultimate Rapid Movement Denim. These are the pieces that become you. Take great American pride in them.

#4 Go for clean lines. Venerable stripes. Strapless. Less is more and the polished minimalist is back in a big way.

#5 Live for luxury, that’s the American dream. You get to define what that means, whether it’s a sumptuous silk scarf or chambray lapel, something shiny that catches the sunlight just right or owning a few pairs of sunglasses to go with everything. Wise investments trump all: a great pair of shoes, a good coat, a timeless bag. These are fashion’s greatest pay-offs.

*Classic is never to be confused with boring, it is the epitome of enduring, familiar
cool.
