LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 14, 2012) - Fashion's got patriotic, painting the town reds, white and blues on both sides of the pond.
With the Jubilee weekend in recent history Cool Britannia is still very much in the air.
The royal red, white and blue has caused a stirring in wardrobes across the country, with high street fashion leaders, New Look producing a Copy Me Kate range for fans of the perfectly put together princess - from royal blue clutch bags to sparkling earrings.
With July 4th now just around the corner, the red and white and blue has turned American.
With graphic prints still very much the rage, both the Union Jack and Stars and Stripes are the current way to wear it. American fashionistas are wearing their colours with pride, draped in blousy shirts, snug in fitted vests, or in oversized shirts. Perfect with this summer's distressed and bleached-out denim, it is American Dream fashion with a kitsch twist. Countless celebrities have been seen sporting stars and stripes, from the A-list leggy starts at Coachella like Kate Bosworth to American Sweethearts like Taylor Swift - it's a slice of easy riding American pie fashion with lots of fashion fun.
It's a graphic print that works its magic on bold items like bags and dresses. New Look's American Flag Print Skirt is a perfect piece to experiment with. Teamed with wedge shoes and a plain white-tee, a fashion icon is born. For the evening, take advantage of the other brands in the New Look house. Their Firetrap Red Bella Cross Back Maxi Dress is a ravishing way to way red. If subtlety is the style, then playing with block colours is an ideal way of alluding to the trend. Splashing the wardrobe with a little red, white and blue can be simply done.
The hip and stylish shouldn't shy away from mixing and matching flags, or at least let the colours run into each other. New Look's Blue Chiffon Side Split Maxi Skirt is brightly royal, but mixed with New Look's White American Flag Cropped Vest and a pair of biker books the look has edge and attitude. With a pair of the store's Bronx Red Suede Lace up Brogue, the look is introduced to a little London Calling Punk.
