Nothing says British style like the Union Jack flag, and since the Summer Olympic Games are putting all eyes on London we wanted to kick off the games in all things UK. If, like us, you aren’t packing for a trip to London for the games but will be wishing you were, these pieces are especially perfect for you.
The Union Jack has had its moment in the fashion spotlight before, (hello Geri Halliwell AKA Ginger Spice circa 1996) and although it’s nothing new to see a flag-bearing t-shirt, the items we’ve hunted down for you are far from ordinary. In fact, these pieces can be part of an edgy, Brit-Rocker look even long after the games are played. Subtle flag colours on faded denim like these Topshop shorts is one of our favourite ways to show your London pride, while add-ons like our Pretty Ballerina flats, Asos shades, French Connection scarf and Adidas watch are options for the perfect finish to a casual summer look complete with leather shorts and a sheer white cotton t-shirt. (Not all at once, of course!)
Finally, if you want to say your heart is in London with your country’s athletes without donning red, white and blue, stick to summer shades and a sexy silhouette in this Motel neon-meets-Brit Flag mini dress. We think Kate Moss would approve!
