OLD NAVY’S SUMMER COLLECTION SPARKLES WITH STYLE

American prints and sequin accents take you effortlessly from day to night

SAN FRANCISCO, May 9, 2008 – Old Navy’s Summer collection, in store during June and July, continues the brand’s strong focus on versatile, fashion-forward clothes and accessories. These looks will take customers easily from day to night whether at work, the beach or at a backyard barbeque. Bring out your inner rock-and-roll with a subtle spray of sequins on a tank top or a dress drenched in shine. Balance that style with classic pieces in reds, blues, and bandana prints.

Rocker Chic – Dance the night away with Old Navy’s rock-and-roll inspired pieces. If you’re going from work to play, a shiny tank dress ($29.50) or vest ($24.50) with sequined accents with skinny jeans ($34.50) does the trick. For those really looking to get noticed, put on a sequined racerback dress ($49.50) paired with studded suede heel for the full effect. Just want to update your look? Old Navy accessories will get the job done. Studded thong sandals ($19.50) or a glitter clutch ($12.50) can easily be paired with any outfit to give a classic look a sassy flair. 

The New Neutrals – Add a twist to classic looks for work, by pairing a white pleated neck-tie shirt ($24.50) with chic and sophisticated khaki shorts with a hint of shimmer ($24.50). A fashionable, yet appropriate, lightweight, belted sweater dress ($34.50) with a fun belt and heels will transform your office work-wear. For those damp days, finish off your outfit with a classic black trench ($49.50).

Americana – Effortless style is a must for those relaxing summer days.  Pops of color, whether on a red cap-sleeved dress ($29.50) or a yellow cropped jacket ($34.50) for those cooler nights, will update your look with ease. For those last minute weekend getaways, pack a cross-back bandana dress ($29.50) and sateen Bermuda shorts ($24.50) with a pair of flats; you’ll be prepared for any adventure. Look “barbeque chic” with a striped racerback knit dress ($24.50) to make a statement.
