Olympic metallics

Are you a gold, silver or bronze? We’d all want to win gold in the Olympics, right? But which of the Olympic metallics would you prefer to wear? Gold, silver, or bronze.

Gorgeous gold is the winner in the Olympics, and maybe the winner in the Olympic metallics choice for you. Sparkles, sequins, metallic, patent, leather, and, well, more sparkle. We love gold. It looks fantastic on all skintones. It works in summer and winter, and it can look classy and uber-casual. Team with denim, more gold or browns to bring it out at the top of the podium, its rightful place.

Medal Winning Fashion – Weekly Wishlist

We all love fashion, and we all love a wishlist – so here’s a weekly wishlist with a few of our favourite fashion picks. We’ll be doing this for the next few weeks, so make sure you pop in each week if you want to see what’s on our summer weekly wishlist.

The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games ends this weekend, and we’ve been inspired by all the athletes and all those medals! So, this week’s list pays homage to them, with some medal winning fashion in gold, silver and bronze! Well done to all the athletes and well done to you if you’re sporting this medal winning fashion look this weekend. Metallics have been huge this summer, and the trend will carry through to autumn/winter.

Be extra bold about your medal winning fashion style with a killer pair of silver leggings, from French Connection. They’re not for everyone, but if you’re brave enough they are in the sale for £19, reduced from £39.

H&M’s sequinned top (£29.99) and matching pencil skirt (£34.99) make more than a medal winning fashion statement when worn together. Add the gold and rhinestone snake bracelet (£7.99) for more impact.
