London 2012 Olympics seem so be all that's on every ones minds:watching the races, travelling to the Olympic village and just generally catching 'Olympic fever'. But who would have thought London 2012 would become a fashion statement. Of course, sporty shoes such as, Vans, Converse and Vintage Nike high tops have 'blown up' this year, basically everyone I know owns at least one pair of the previous three. So I suppose it was inevitable that a sporty summer trend would follow. Slouchy sweaters, sporty dresses and running shorts can be seen everywhere: from catwalk to high street. Quite a risky trend, as I'm sure there are some who would be hesitant to wear an 'I Love Sports' sweater and a baseball cap, but for others its the perfect way to get involved in London 2012 (without doing any sports)! I personally made a nod toward the trend a few months ago, on finding a pair of red running shorts in Superdry (which can be seen in the first picture). I either wear these with a denim bralet (Topshop) or a studded top (also Topshop). As well as this, I have my good old navy Converses which I wore all through the winter and will continue to wear throughout the summer. What's your opinion on this trend?
