The Olympics are here, which does result in the athlete uniform being
the MUST HAVE in the wardrobe. Cycling shorts (cringe big time, i’m a
pear shape so these are my enemy), vests and jogging trousers are in all the high street shops. Does this mean chav clothing is stylish?????? Sports magazines are the new Elle and Vogue, and the athletes are taking over the beauty adverts. Jessica Ennis is at Olay, and the women’s swimming team are doin PR for the latest shaver.
I’ll take part in this trend, but only the vests (as part of my pjs) cos it is so hot at the moment! No trackies for me, proud to say I own none 🙂 It’s brill having the Olympics in Britain, Stella has done an ace job with the TeamGB kit. It’s a bit too close in some body area places for my liking, but athletes are fit, lyrca is like cotton to them.
It’s going to be hard finding a shop that doesn’t have the sport trend, one that has stuck to the classic summer styles of dresses and denim. Actually, I bet Marks and Spencers will, unless they get Twiggy in the lyrca TeamGB kit! I highly doubt taht to be honest.
I like the Olympics. I think of Greece, I think of Olympia, which leads me to Hercules, to short floaty Grecian style summer dresses.
I wonder which athlete will take Cole’s spot on the L’Oreal advert????? Athletes are the new models, but for how long? And will Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony be as spectacular as Karl’s roundabout for Chanel?
