We've looked ahead to red carpet trends and even trends in the kitchen, but we often neglect to talk about certain elements of fashion which extend into sport. The 2016 sports calendar looks packed as ever with Premier League football, marathons, and racing galore. There are even big deal events such as the summer Olympics in Rio, along with the Paralympics and women's baseball World Cup. It's a bit odd to think of clothing when it comes to all things typically associated with getting down and dirty; but as there will be plenty of opportunities to be a spectator, there are no reasons why you can't be a stylish one whilst you're at it!
Perhaps the most typical event to go and watch is the footie. Whether you're with your man at home or your girls down at the pub, why not take a leaf out of the WAGs book and look absolutely stunning? Of course, if all you're planning on doing is lazing around online to do a spot of international football betting, you can basically wear whatever you like! These days, it's possible to enjoy participation from the comfort of your pajamas, especially if you actually like the game enough to not be setting out to impress!
A day at the races is often a highly coveted day in the social calendar for everyone. But for women, it can be especially so. This year's award ceremonies so far, have seen a massive trend emerging. That trend is of metallic – and it's going to filter down to everything else as well. Of course, if you've not been to the races before, you'll want to be practical because it's a long day. The dress should be light and airy but attention grabbing (not enough to get you negative comments though!) Shoes, whilst of course complementing the dress, should be practical enough for long periods of standing. You should also ensure to bring a light, (and imperatively) matching jacket to keep warm as the day goes on. Don't ruin a good outfit with the wrong choice!
The Olympic & Paralympic Games
Okay, so it's unlikely that you're going to be jetting off to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil (and if you are - super jealous!), but that doesn't mean you can't join in on the summery festivities right from home. It's likely to be a day down at the beer garden (look out of the window and try not to cry that you're not there now...) and so there are an abundance of fashion options. Of course, the fail-safe is the classic skinnies and heels combination. It's an easy way to dress up an otherwise casual outfit, and a floaty top (or even a crop, if you are brave enough) wouldn't go amiss. Of course, if you're more adventurous, the cute hot-pant dungarees trend shouldn't be going anywhere this year, and bonus points for checks and stripes!
