But now that Christmas has been and gone, we all have to admit that we drift off into a little day dream now and again of what summer will actually feel like; we all do a little internet shopping during our lunch break (ahem..!) picking and choosing between the best of the high street lookbooks. But what and who is really going to be massively on trend this summer (yes THIS summer, not next summer you eager people!) So with three trends in mind, I took to the online shops to see which high street retailer was getting a fashionable gold medal for the upcoming season (like I'd actually venture outside in this weather, brrrr!)
As I write this, I have good old Olivia Newton John's 'Lets get physical' whirring around in my head. But don't worry girls, we don't actually have to get up and exercise - oh no! Thanks to the Olympics coming to London this 2012, fashion has been inspired by all things sporty. Forget, Puma, Donnay and Kappa (does that brand even exist anymore?!) this trend is all about Miss Selfridge. Think industrial zips embellishing low slung bottoms, colour block body con dresses to show off that stunning figure and not forgetting the bowler bag to accessorise any sport-inspired look. It's football without the running, rugby without the catching and tennis without the serving -- LOVE.
