WARDROBE WONDERS: Olympic Fever
Posted July 31, 2012on:
Finally we’re here! After all the build up, that magnificent opening ceremony and now the quest for our first Gold medal we are officially experiencing high-octane Olympic mania. The Jubilee had us brimming over with English pride earlier this summer but it all seems to have paled into significance with the thrill of playing host in our very own capital city. Here at Dressipi HQ, Fashion Editor Nicki and I were lucky enough to be involved in an early rev-up to these few weeks whilst shooting the 11 “Great Britons” who lent their support to celebrate the Official Team GB scarf. All of the proceeds go to supporting the athletes and with scarves being a hot fashion accessory this season what better way to celebrate this summer’s amazing events. It’s available exclusively through Next and we feel one of the most stylish piece of official kit.
As fashion celebrates all things Olympian we’ve nominated our top three pieces for you to pledge your allegiance to Team GB:
1 Going for Gold!….We love this medal sweater from Markus Lupfer that’s exudes a winning spirit:
2 Let it rain….We can keep a stiff upper lip about the weather but let’s face it a true summer seems to be alluding us all. Resign yourself to the wet weather and banish those grey skies with a pair of patriotic Hunter wellies that would look cute worn with a pair of shorts or a flippy summer dress:
3 Waving the flag….A rock n roll way of sporting the Union Jack these printed jeans from Religion would look great with a pair of Isabel Marant high tops and a slouchy sweater:
