Fashion Forward: Olympic Couture

For all the fashionistas, watching our favorite athletes win gold medals at the 2016 Olympics (Aug. 5-21) isn’t nearly as exciting if we don’t look like winners too. Ditch those tacky, over-the-top team name T-shirts for this year’s chic and subtle Olympic-ready outfits. Whether you’re cheering from home or all the way in Rio, these Olympic essentials will make you feel like you’re standing on the first-place podium.

1. Don’t shy away from your competitive side. Cheer for America with these Team USA Havianas. The American red and blue keeps things spirited—so does the American flag detail on the strap. Plus, Havianas originated from Brazil, which makes them the perfect shoe for this year’s Rio Olympics. $26, Havianas, zappos.com.

2. The Team USA T-shirt dress is festive, comfortable and trendy. The red and blue label makes the dress a great choice for not only the Olympics, but for any other time of the year. Pair it with some cute Keds, and you’re all set. $78, Polo Ralph Lauren, bloomingdales.com.

3. Unlike other team shirts, this colorful Brasil 2016 ringer T-shirt can hold its own. The rainbow lettering and singular globe and motto makes the team shirt less patriotic and more casual.

I love the blue borders on the neck and arms because it gives the shirt a simple Olympic touch. $34, Urban Outfitters, urbanoutfitters.com.

4. This “Go for the Gold” graphic tee is the perfect shirt for watching the Olympics with your friends. While everyone else is wearing flashy team shirts, you’ll stand out without even trying. $22.94, Old Navy, oldnay.gap.com.

5. Stay cool and fashionable while you work out (or hang out). The seamless Lycra fabric allows you to stay comfortable as you watch the games on the edge of your seat. The bra comes in blue for USA or green for Brazil. $48, LuluLemon Athletica, shop.lululemon.com.

6. Not into Olympic-themed clothing? No worries. Show your stripes with this cute Team USA pin. It’s perfect for on a scarf, jacket or even the strap of a cross-over bag. $8.99, Team USA Shop, teamusashop.com.
