Springtime Sports Star

Springtime Sports Star

Hello world,

Christmas is over, the best of sale has already been sold and we’ve left the New Year behind. Even the days are starting to look brighter, so it’s a bit apt that it’s time to start looking towards springtime. Thankfully the majority of the shops are looking towards the spring/summer season too and were able to give me these gems.

Now the sportswear trend is quite simple; Calvin Klein epitomised Americana sportswear and Victoria Beckham has become synonymous with her own version if the trend, emphasising on bold colours ad clean lines.

This season the sportswear is more active as it takes its inspiration from the field, with Isabel Marant working the baseball shirt to a whole new level while Alexander Wang taking on the college football wear.

These sporty signatures are some of my favourite pieces on the high street.

Hello world,

It seems that this season all that glitters isn’t gold. Designers and the high street have been falling over themselves to drape us not in the usual gold, but metallic silver.

Whether it’s silver lamé, sequined, woven or embellished, the aim for this season is to shimmer like a disco ball.

I’ve selected a few of my favourite pieces from the high street as who needs designer when these babies are a fraction of the price.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting my ‘Look of the Day’ which is my own take on the metallic trend.

Fantasy Wardrobe – My take on Pre-Fall’s obsession with shimmer and mustard

Fantasy Wardrobe – My take on Pre-Fall’s obsession with shimmer and mustard

Hello world, It’s a little depressing writing about anything pre-fall, considering it’s still July and I am desperately clinging onto every last summer day we can get before it becomes all cold and wintery again. But it must be done, as the shops are starting to bring in their pre-fall collections and in a month’s …
