God Save McQueen

Our dear ol' Queen celebrates her 60th year on the throne this June and even the fashion world seems to have gone all soppy for Her Maj.

Here are a few items to make your wardrobe a little more royal - and quite possibly tacky.

Nothing says 'royal' quite like stamps, so this colourful Liberty London scarf will be great for this summer's festivities. Who wants a mug to remind you of the Jubilee when you can have this scarf? Though the mug may be slightly cheaper than the scarf's £150 price tag.

Liberty London have also teamed up with Alexander McQueen to create this Jubilee inspired scarf for £445.00. As a fan of the Queen, McQueen and wordplay, this scarf is a big hit for me. I love the fashionable take on the Union Jack and believe this will become a collector's piece.

Now I doubt anyone who reads my blog could afford the Alexander McQueen Britannia diamante skull clutch at a whopping £1295 but I had to include it for sheer beauty. I'll be on the look out for a high street knock out, rest assured!

Vintage International Wax Jacket

If you want quintessential British then you, of course, think of Barbour. This Vintage International Wax Jacket from their Heritage Originals collection has a Union Jack lining to give this classic jacket a modern twist, £149.95.

This is one of the best Union Jack bags that I've found on the high street and is by the Frost French 'Floozie' range at Debenhams. They're ten a penny in the shops but this particular one is not only reasonably priced at £25, but also seems to have avoided the usual tackiness of the patriotic bags (the word 'Floozie' may not help though).

No wardrobe will be complete without the Jubilee Mini Top Hat from Accessorize, £35. You may look like a fool on the day, but at least you'll be an elegant one.
