When the US Olympic team strides confidently into the London opening ceremonies they’ll do so with an homage to the last US Olympic team in England, back in 1948. The US outfits, designed by Ralph Lauren are, well, they have berets.
I know the Olympic team outfits aren’t supposed to be the peak of fashion but STILL, these are not my cup of tea. I am glad to see that Lauren managed to sneak in a giant Polo logo though. I was worried about it.
In addition to the opening ceremony outfits (blazers over white shirts, white pants for the men, knee length skirts for the gals) all the US Olympians will also receive special designed hoodies, tank tops, beach towels, sunglasses and even sports duffel bags.
