On the fashion ball

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Life -

WITH the World Cup loom­ing, foot­ball fever is fast grip­ping the nation, but you don’t have to don a tra­di­tional strip to show your pas­sion for the beau­ti­ful game.

Leave the white foot­ball shirts to cap­tain Ger­rard and the boys and show your pa­tri­otic sup­port with more chic op­tions that say WAG rather than chav.

Take de­signer Ashish for in­spi­ra­tion, who proved mix­ing up sporty and glam­our can score on style – his cat­walk show­cased se­quin foot­ball print shorts and em­bel­lished sporty slo­gan tops.
