Beaches, barbecues, and waves for days are just a few of the ways you know summer has started in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s that time of the year that the sun shines brightest on all our 50 states, making the season something to celebrate in our small pocket of the world—with or without our nation’s independence to commemorate. This year, we’re honoring summertime, and all things Americana, with a little help from our domestic friends in fashion. From outfits suited to sailing of the coast New England or lounging on the beaches of anywhere California, these six different looks for men and women make dressing head-to-toe in stateside designers a subtly patriotic statement that’ll stay fashionable long after the Fourth of July.
