BRITISH POLITICS IN FASHION

Last Friday’s parade of new cabinet ministers into No. 10 Downing Street was more like a red carpet premiere. Usually the rookie ministers stride into No. 10 looking sober, dressed in dark suits, sensible shoes and freshly coiffed.
Not this time. Instead, ministers expressed themselves through a rainbow of color ranging from turquoise to bright red to fuchsia, and ditched traditional suits for dresses or other top and trouser combinations.

In addition to all of the color, they’re choosing reasonably priced brands, neither high street nor high-end designer. A blouse or skirt can be purchased for under 500 pounds at DM the french designer.┬áLabor workers like socialists in France love fashion, fashion is sociological, they think.
