This summer, why not take a break from pastels or brights and get inspired by the colours of our very own Union Jack?
Red, white and blue are three colours that just look good together. When the clouds seem like they’re never going to clear, conjure up a feel good, celebratory vibe with this classic mix of colours.
It’s hard to deny that red and blue are great colours for summer dresses. Think of a red dress under a white jacket, a blue and white striped shift or a chic blue cold-shoulder dress with a white bag.
We can’t ignore the big sporting events of the summer – the Olympics and the Wimbledon. If you’re cheering on the home side from work or the pub, go for a stripy polo or Umbro tee for a more subtly stylish look.
Trend alert – mini-me dressing is officially a thing, so try matching your outfit with dresses for them in the national colours. Red and white are especially cute together when it comes to a floral or spot-print dress – blue espadrilles or pumps are a natural finishing touch.
