Achieving sporting style

If you've been inspired by this summer's sporting triumphs and finally feel like peeling yourself off the sofa to get fit, you may be wondering how to get yourself kitted out. While it's true that you can't run in jeans and a shirt (well you can, but not for long), you don't have to give up on style completely - dressing for exercise doesn't have to mean looking chavvy.

Let's start at the top, with tops. Man-made fibres which wick-away sweat are obviously the best choice, but for those who just can't bring themselves to wear polyester a simple cotton T-shirt may suffice. The shorter the sleeves the better though - a vest top is ideal - as you don't want to be running around in a heavy cotton t-shirt when it's warm.

But as we all have work to do and lives to lead, the chances are you won't be running in the nicer part of the day. You'll be running on wet Wednesday nights and dreary Sunday mornings, so you need to have something a little warmer to coax you out to pound those pavements. Hoodies are the best bet, but again you don't have to be a walking advert for Nike or Adidas - even sportswear retailers like JD Sport sell more stylish options from the likes of Converse, Duffer and Brookhaven. With tracksuit bottoms, stick with baggy cotton sweat pants - they're loose fitting and are not nearly as offensive on the eyes as polyester tracksuit bottoms.

One area where you can't afford to make concessions, however, is footwear. You may have a pair of Adidas Originals which you love, with laces that are never tied, but running without the correct support for your foot will soon lead to aches and pains which will stop your fitness plan in its tracks. It's worth getting advice from professionals on your foot shape and your trainer requirements but have a look at this guidance for some background first.

Once you have the kit it's up to you - try and make it a regular habit before winter sets in!

Adopted Culture

Adopted Culture by Nana Afua is simply embracing different cultural values, style and originality to form on piece through fashion. The name 'adopted Culture' is to experience the unique and originality of bringing different cultural designs together and making it fashion.

Adopted Culture theme ideas was inspired from John Galliano, Kofi Ansah and Leigh Bowery, quite fascinate especially with Galliano's trend on how he depicts different cultural textiles and style it up to make a dress, it really inspired the whole concept and theme ideas. Kofi Ansah ideas was also a big influence in this designing piece as more of adopted culture trends has to do with colorful pallets which normally reflects his designs as well.

Adopted Culture has positive vibe with a funky twist as well as theatrical inspiration from Leigh Bowery which is going to go a long way in the fashion industry with its upcoming designs. The collection ranges from sizzling evening wear to couture, promoting fashion through unity with different cultural style and designed for today's woman to embrace curves and appreciate their wonderful body in every style.
