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.

medal winning fashion leggingsIf that’s too much, how about a hint of medal winning fashion with a gold or silver bag? A gorgeous gold box clutch from J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams (£40, in store September 1), or a silver backpack from New Look (£19.99).

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.

H&M’s bronzed trainers (£29.99) are perfect for late summer into autumn – medal winning fashion without the actual medal winning sport effort!

Red Herring @ Debenhams have the cutest glittery bronze shorts coming into store this Autumn. Add a little hint of gold with JOY’s ribbon bow ring (£8 – was £14), and finally, embrace bronze, silver and gold with Hush Puppies fab sandals (£32 – was £40, BHS).

Spring metallics at The Grammys

A big trend for spring, is, believe it or not, metallics. More often seen in the winter months, spring metallics were seen on the catwalks of Paris, London, MIlan and New York.

And on Sunday night at the Grammy Awards in Hollywood, spring metallics wowed the red carpet. Taylor Swift looked amazing in Gucci, Rita Ora chose knee length metallic green Lanvin, Chrissy Teigen wore silver, Amber Rose dazzled in Pucci, and Ciara looked glowing in maternity metallics.

The spring metallics trend has just started to trickle into the store – watch it explode in the next few months.

If you want to buy into this spring trend in a small way, accessories are a great idea. From shoes to handbags, to belts, a hint of metallic is better than none!

Gorgeous shimmering sequins are a great way to do the spring metallics trend. Choose pinks and nudes for a spring style. Metallic sheen trousers looks great with metallic boots, and a simple top.
