As I strolled though my local city today I felt a sense of belonging stronger than ever before. The Union Jack flags decorating the buildings were swaying in the breeze, newsagent windows were aligned with patriotic paraphernalia and I also blended in with the red, white and blue. Think clean white converse, royal blue skinnies and a red cotton lace cami top. With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics this Summer there is no better time to celebrate and support our country by incorporating a Union Jack colour palette into our wardrobes. British fashionistas should revel in the delight that our country possesses a flag with a trio of highly complimenting colours. Think about the Jamaican flag and you will understand a little better – yellow, green and black?! Our country’s colours are basic and timeless and teamed together they create a classic outfit that will stand the test of time, just like the United Kingdom. – GWC
