It's not really the time to be the proudest brit of the pack at the moment with London's current plague of pointless riots. So for now I'm dressing myself in stars and stripes instead! I loved how the retail trends went all exotic this summer with Aztec prints, and I was also drawn in by the Americana about. My jumper below from www.loveclothing.com is a popping use of the famous flag, with the stars sprinkled around the shoulders and the sharp red jetting across the chest. It's got the serious comfort factor, and is going to befriend me well into the Winter. I've also included some editorials below that indulge in the idea too. Erin Wasson quite literally drapes herself in a flag, and designer Reneg Urskov adds a galactic angle.
