This Week In Fashion: Olympic Nights

So with this years Olympics we’ve seen a massive nod to everything sporty.  Stylist Nicki Gillon shows you how to work this look 3 ways….

Beach sports – we’re taking sports to the beach!  Think body sculpting shapes and its all about the details, zips, mesh and neon piping.

 

Evening wear – can we do sportswear as evening wear? Yes! Think sophisticated streamlined bodycons, sleek and simple shapes with sporty details.  Look to the catwalks for bold colour palettes, Sonia Rykiel showed us how this is done, pairing dark lines with brighter shades.  If the catwalk can do it so can we!


Casual – I love Isabel Marant’s take on this look.  It’s about taking the sports look from the gym to the streets.  Think layers, draw strings, mesh inserts, metallics and block colours.
