Weekend Shopping: Fourth of July American Flag Waving Fashion

29/06/2012 16:34 | Updated 29 August 2012

I adore America. I also love a bit of theme dressing. As a kid I spent a lot of Independence Days in the States and, even though with the exception of having a few American relatives, I don't really have any reason to celebrate 4 July, for me it's just a great excuse to dress up, eat some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and drink even more Diet Coke and Starbucks than usual.

What with 2012 being Britain's year (I believe we've even gone so far as to copyright it), there are Union Jack print everythings, everywhere but you never have to look far to find the iconic stars and stripes design of the American flag in one form or another. Here's my pick for a variety of USA-inspired looks from street chic and high fashion to cheapo high street fun pieces for anyone else who doesn't need much of an excuse for a party.

My 4th July Outfit: American flag-print OnePiece onesie jumpsuit (lightweight unisex version, £129 from, Christopher Lee Suave Jessica Simpson Scandal t-shirt (£60 from, Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals Wings 2.0 USA trainers (they're from the SS12 collection so pretty much sold out everywhere I'm afraid but try who still have a few left), accessorised with some Reese's Puffs peanut butter breakfast cereal (£7.49), and all American Coca-Cola (special exclusive Olympics bottles, £1.99) both from Selfridges.

Clockwise from top left: Jacket, £72.95 from, Wrangler stars and stripes t-shirt, £25 from, Marc by Marc Jacobs stacked-heel leather ankle boots, £445 from, Lucky charms breakfast cereal, £7.49 from, Pilot American Flag Denim Hotpant, £16.99, Gant Serena boat shoes in red, £95 and Gant Rose desert boots, £95 both from, Pilot Stars Stripes Legging, £7.99, K Way American Flag jacket, £120 from, short sleeve Stars Stripes oversized top, £9.99 and multi colour wide neck Star Stripe top £13.99 both from, Customisable star charm bracelet £70 from, Frye Kira high tops, £110 from, Soul Cal Stars and Stripes Shirt, £20 from, Internacionale American Flag Denim Gilet, £19.99 from, Pilot's Jeffrey Campbell style lace up Stars Stripe platform shoe boots, £31.99, Daisy Alpha ring, £37 from, and Smucker's Goober grape, £4.89 from
