Since the spectacular opening ceremony last Friday, we’ve been glued to our television sets watching the world’s greatest athletes compete for Olympic gold in Rio. The Summer Olympics are only on for one more week, but the feels we get from watching these incredible athletes chase their dreams will stick around long after the Games come to a close.
Needless to say, we’ve been feeling inspired by the spirit of the Olympic season. That’s why we’ve compiled some of our top looks to wear while cheering on your favorite athletes. Like the emotional moments and record-breaking achievements of the Olympic Games, these trends are sure to endure.
Want a gold-medal-worthy look? Click on your favorite pieces to shop them!
Flag Bearer: Show your #TeamUSA spirit by sporting some patriotic gear this Olympic year. The best thing about rocking stars and stripes? With the Americana look back on trend, a flag piece can also come in handy after the Olympic torch has been extinguished. We suggest proudly parading your patriotic threads this coming November when you head out to #RockTheVote!
Metal Ceremony: You don’t have to be an elite athlete to adorn yourself with some major metal. For those of us who won’t be winning gold, silver, or bronze any time soon, fashion-forward metallic footwear makes for a winning look. Dress up or down with strappy stilettos, peep-toe pumps, classic sneakers, or feminine flats with mirror-like metallic shine.
Athletic Prowess: This year’s Olympians have been kicking ass and taking names in some of the coolest gear ever. To cop the pro athlete look, try a jammer-inspired cropped jumpsuit, a chic warm-up jacket, or a sporty two-piece set. Hey, rocking these threads might even inspire you to hit the gym. And who knows? Maybe we’ll see you on top of that medal podium someday!
