It was only to be expected, what with her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee and all; all fabric has turned red, white and blue and the Union Jack is everywhere to be seen. On tee shirts, maxi dresses, blouses, kids clothing, you name it, it’s on it. But what happens when the event has passed? Are you still going to want to wear that jubilee dress that has emblazoned on it flags of the British Empire? Sure you can if you chose something a little classy and not too overdone.
