Be inspired by sport this summer

The summer of sport is in full swing; the football has begun and tennis comes next before the Commonwealth Games explodes towards the back end of summer.

So it's time to embrace this jam-packed season of sport by pulling on the new sportswear trends.

While some may want to dust off their tennis rackets and don their full sports kit - sports socks and all - others may prefer to channel sporting influences through their everyday style.

For those interested in the football, anything goes in terms of colour. Blue, red and white each mirror the England team's kits, so why not jazz up your work uniform by slipping on a pair of novelty England socks ?

If tennis is more your thing, then there is no other option than white so ditch the dark clothing.

Enjoy afternoon tea while watching Wimbledon - just making sure not to drop strawberries on your white ensemble.

And finally, the Commonwealth Games. Mimic the lycra look with scuba-like fabric dresses and skirts paired with dolly socks and sandals or even patterned tights for a more daring look.

To top off these sport-inspired outfits, there is only one accessory colour to go for - gold. Think gold jewellery, gold studs, piping and embellishments.
