Maybe it is because the U.S.A. is going through one of the most politically troublesome eras in modern history that the nations pop culture history and lexicon of symbols is proving a ripe source of ideas for style.
An appetite for red, white and blue; for stars and stripes; for quarter back shoulders and Dynasty inspired diva gowns flooded the runways alongside endless variations on utility wear and many a spin on Rodeo splendour. Find Gucci’s tie belt red white and blue sweaters with matching skirts alongside star patterned cold shoulder sleeve blouses by Monse plus mismatched stripe T-shirt’s by Calvin Klein.
Icons of 1980s glamour have a special role to play and popped up with Lucy Ewing worthy bespangled dresses, Crystal Carrington jewel coloured blouses, Nancy Reagan pencil skirt suits and a slew of splendid cowboy boots. Whatever Trump’s Twitter feed reads, these are pieces that wave the flag for what’s great about America.
