The British roots of many of the fall fashion staples are hard to ignore – and everyone seems to have caught British fever once again with the London Olympics.

I can’t help but fall in love with the latest Tommy Hilfiger ads in my fashion magazines. They’re sooooo delightfully British!

This is the image from their website. I adore the “let’s go on a fox hunt” (just the look, fox hunting IRL is cruel) aspect. It brings me back to my childhood watching Disney’s The Fox and the Hound and reading the book “Cinnabar, the One O’Clock Fox”. It’s so beautifully outdoorsy, elegant, and equestrian.

Here is how you can show your love of all things British!
