Low-key prints and fabrics such as gingham and subdued stripes are versatile options for showing your “Born in the USA” pride. J.

For another option, the Collection Off-The-Shoulder Top in yarn-dyed silk features a woven blue and navy print inspired by traditional madras. J. Crew also offers matching pants for the Off-The-Shoulder top and skirt for the Bow- Shoulder if you want to coordinate a head-to-toe look.
