The World Cup is here! What, you mean you know?! Oh yes, that’s right, it is all anyone has been talking about for the past month. Well, now that England are out of the running we know that you are supposed to pretend that the World Cup never happened at all, but we think it is the perfect chance to celebrate some of the other teams who are still taking part.
If you fancy staying in the World Cup spirit, then why not wear an outfit based on the colours of your favourite team? England was the obvious choice, of course, but there are plenty of other nations that are great fun to watch and to support (you just might not want to do so at some of the rougher football loving pubs…).
With the help of Clothing at Tesco I have put together a few outfits inspired by some of the best flags in the World Cup, so that you can watch those games in style!
Items: F&F crop cardigan, Strappy platform shoe, Skinny jeans, Drawstring tunic, Yellow watch
The German team probably isn’t a favourite at the moment, but it is always a pleasure to watch them play football. Plus, I have a great deal of affection for our old football rivals, and always enjoy watching them play. Make black the base of this outfit, so that the red top and yellow accessories have something to stand out against.
Items: F&F shell top, Cut out pumps, Boyfriend jacket, Double layered skirt, Hoop necklace
Argentina are doing well so far too, and their flag lets us create a really light and summary outfit. The gentle and cool pairing of blue and white is given a little flare by the sunny yellow, making their colours a budding fashionista’s dream!
Items: F&F bandeau dress, Leather wedges, Studded trilby, Mischa Barton cross over bag
To be honest you could revamp the Dutch outfit to be French if you wanted, thanks to the similarity between the flags! I like the idea of teaming muted whiteish accessories with a pretty red summer dress, and using your makeup to make the statement in blue.
Items: Floral shorts, Signature wallet, Checked shirt, Knotted vest, Weaved pumps
Ghana are my personal favourite for the world cup, not to win but just for fun. So far they are defying everyone’s expectations! Cheer them along with a bright and colourful outfit – such as these cute floral shorts, a green top, and a yellow top. It ain’t quiet and it ain’t subtle, but I think it is a really fun look!
