Just another British Girl

The rain falls down, puddles rise in the paths, and grey skies rule the grey buildings. Welcome to Britain, and in particular, Scotland. Doesn’t sound extremely attractive, right?How about this; A land full of a variety of different cultures, where originality is worshiped and the rare sunshine is not taken for granted. Two views, one island.
Well, in Britain’s leading fashion statements, I am beginning to notice that use of my homeland’s flag is growing more and more popular. Even in countries as far as America, the Union Jack is making a mark on the world.



The city style: london


A city filled with vibrant colours; of which the most compelling is red. From the telephone boxes, to the double decker buses, many have been known to label red as London’s colour. After all; it goes well with the rose, which is England’s national flower. Through the years, London fashion week has been known as bright, bold, and wild. With colour themes being the center of every outfit, and a large majority of clothes consisting of block colour, perhaps we ought to take a leaf out of the fashion capital’s book. Preferably not the flyleaf.
Many designers in London choose to use primary colours in their creations; unmixed reds, blues and yellows are taking over. In this prestigious city, the wisest of people in the fashion industry work with their surroundings. With the brown hues in surrounding buildings and red hues dotted all around the city, it is important that one does not choose an outfit which clashes with these surrounding colours. But there are always those who do not follow the set rules. As long as you are aware that there are guidelines, nobody is preventing you from letting your wild side take over!  As coco chanel said; “fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with the ideas, the way that we live,  and what is happening”
