Leading on from Usain Bolt’s seemingly effortless performance at the London 2012 Olympics, Theo’s top 5 fashion blogs for August all have an element of ‘cool’. His featured posts range from the uber-chic sports jacket to the Dior’s timeless style.
This post is an image-laden round-up of the spectacular mini-fashion show that took place at the London 2012 Closing Ceremony. With designs from Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood being worn by supermodel greats such as Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, the show celebrated the best of British fashion. Although somewhat out of place at a sporting event, the show was simply stunning. This post was my favourite account of the event.
2) Lela London – Throwback Thursday: 1950s Dior
Here we are taken back to the 1950s, a pioneering era for fashion. Showing you that Christian Dior’s style is enduring, this post looks at some French models wearing Dior pieces whilst walking through a Soviet shopping centre. Have a look at the post; it will confirm to you that good fashion is timeless.
3) Fur Coat, No Knickers – Furcoat favourites: Oompa Loompa stick it up your jumper
Chunky wool jumpers are en vogue right now, and will be a major fashion must for the Autumn/Winter months. Rachael Gibson at Fur Coat, No Knickers brings a lot of humour in this post, and has also put together a tidy selection of attractive jumpers. The Sonia Rykiel Buffalo Plaid Sweater is my favourite.
4) The White Studio – Olympic fashion part 3
Last month I declared my love for sporty chic, and with the Olympics so fresh in our memory, there should have been no doubt in your minds that this month would also feature a post about the look. This post looks at the trendy sports jacket, which is a great addition to any wardrobe and instantly makes anyone wearing one a ‘cool cat’. It’s just so effortlessly stylish.
5) Mademoiselle Robot – Monsieur Robot: return of the bag lady
This post gives a stylish alternative to the rucksack, the current must-have accessory. The rucksack isn’t for everyone, however, and Monsieur Robot gives his view on why the shoulder bag still reigns. I’m loving the Vivienne Westwood Africa Bag, which is part of the International Trade Centre’s Ethical Fashion Program of the United Nations. An ethical and fashionable choice.
