Queen’s Birthday Patriotic Style – Weekly Wishlist

The Queen is 90 this Thursday, so celebrate our Monarch’s big day with some patriotic style – that means red, white and blue! There’s nothing as fresh as the colours of the British flag. Red, white and blue go together so well, and are perfect for spring.

Celebrate the Queen turning 90 with this patriotic style, with a full red, white and blue outfit, or just a nod to the colours here and there.

Red is a bright, bold shade, great for all seasons. A red skirt, dress or trousers makes a big, bold statement. Bright blue, or navy blue? We can never decided which is best for British patriotic style. Our flag’s blue is probably the darker shade, but we can’t resist bright, cobalt blue.

And then white to tie it all together – a great spring and summer shade on its own, but the perfect filling between the red and blue patriotic style sandwich!

Here’s our weekly wishlist of gorgeous patriotic style-led pieces for you to wear this week!

Fourth of July Fashion

It’s time for some Fourth of July fashion for, well, the Fourth of July. That’s USA independence Day. The day when the USA celebrates its liberation from, er, us.

But we’re all buddies these days, so why not join in the celebrations (any excuse for a party) with some Fourth of July fashion. That’s red, white and blue, with a few stars and stripes thrown in for good measure!

Red, white and blue is such a great summer fashion colour combination. If Fourth of July fashon isn’t your thing, you can still embrace red, white and blue. It’s fresh, crisp and clean. Wear it casual with a flared white skirt, and a red body, with some pumps – very Audrey Hepburn and maybe more Parisian red white and blue than USA!
