Denim Shorts. Two models wearing denim shorts on the beach

Show off your flair for Americana style with a classic pair of denim shorts. This all-American staple has embodied summer style for decades. And this season denim shorts are all about the details. Distressed bermudas feel fresh and laid-back while release hems take on a trendy outlook. Pair denim shorts with a cold shoulder top and slip on your favorite sandals for a timeless look.

Prints are an easy way to add a little spark to your Americana look. Stripes always make a symbolic statement, especially in red, white and blue! Bandana-inspired paisley prints are fun and always feels fresh. Try a paisley print in a red color palette for a nostalgic nod to All-American style. Plaids provide a patriotic feel to your look when designed in the colors of the stars and stripes. Try a blue gingham plaid as the perfect print for your outdoor picnic or a red and blue plaid for a look that will complement your favorite denim.

Nothing makes getting ready for a day of summer fun easy, quite like a breezy dress. A lightweight swing dress in an Americana-inspired color palette is the perfect dress for hanging out with friends or chasing the kids around the yard. Asymmtrical and sharkbite hemlines make your summer dress more eye-catching, especially in iconic Americana blues. With a breezy summer dress, getting ready is as simple as grabbing your favorite shades.

Accessories. A model wearing stacked blue bracelets and another model wearing a cool fedora and hoop earrings.

Top off your Americana look with accessories that shine. A classic fedora with a striped ribbon band keeps the sun at bay and looks great dressed up or down. Our summertime jewelry collection is a style statement maker all on its own. We love it so much; we made it in the two most iconic Americana colors: red and blue!

Red, white and blue is the perfect summertime trend. Wear any of these styles to your 4th of July events and show off your patriotic spirit. Capture and share your Americana style with us on social media using #mycatostyle!

  1. Is Cato ever going to come to Oregon? I love going to Cato when I visit Texas. Love the clothes. There are no Cato stores up here and I miss shopping there.

  2. It seems Cato’s styles,material, and designs are becoming matronly instead of contemporary. Not everything but more and more. I am a young 67 year old who wears a size 10 and love that you can buy current styles without trying too hard. Cato is the only place I shop but each visit I am buying less and less
