London Calling: Fashion Guide to Summer Olympics 2012

You don’t have to be in London to celebrate the summer Olympics in style. Check out this guide for the summer essentials that are too torching-hot to compete with!

 Stella McCartney makes anything look good. It’s no wonder she designed Great Britain’s gear. Thanks to her collaboration with Adidas, you don’t have to be an Olympian to wear designer sportswear. This top is so cute it would almost be a shame to work out in.

These wellies are certainly appropriate for London’s rain, but they are really cute anywhere. Check out Hunter’s stylish rendition of the Union Jack.

If you’re feelin’ patriotic, try a cute accessory from Ralph Lauren’s Olympic line like this Team USA beret.

For a hat that’s straight from England, check out Christy’s for summery styles and classic London looks.

You may need a tea party to wear your British hat to, and that tea party will need biscuits. Luckily, Biscuiteers has got you covered with Olympic-themed gingerbread men.

 For the ultimate British experience, indulge in an urban survival kit created by Mulberry designer Emma Hill. It includes everything from a Mulberry backpack and accessories to sweet treats and a key chain. If this kit is a little too steep for your wallet, try making your own starting with a classic satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Company.

And if you’re lucky enough to be in London, make sure to check out these stylish pop-up shops:

Karl Lagerfeld has just opened his Olympic-inspired pop-up shop at the English department store Selfridges. Begin shopping  online! Opening Ceremony has also opened a pop-up shop in London featuring their collaboration with Adidas as well as vintage sportswear.
