Every four years, the Olympics give even the most non sports fans out there a sense of good old patriotism. With good reason though, this particular event is the only time we come together with other countries in friendly spirits carrying a common goal; a little competition! Held in a uber trendy London this go round, we would be remiss to not talk a little bit about some of the fashion right?
American born and bred designer, Ralph Lauren cultivated Team USA’s opening ceremony ensembles for the third time in a row, and it’s pretty easy to see why. Lauren’s aesthetic perfectly captures that clean cut, preppy and proud image that many non American citizens of the world view us as having. Clean and classic blazers and ascots accompany our signature red, white and blue for outfits that look sleek, not like flight attendant uniforms at all! Controversy ensued when it was realized Mr. Lauren’s duds were actually made in China…but that is a whole different blog post! Other fashion notables at the games included India staying true to their culture in custom Sari’s, Hawaiian esque print shirts for Figi and Bermuda in…bermuda shorts!
One accessorizing aspect we should surely touch on, is the developing trend of flashy nail art! It seems like everyone from celebrities like Katy Perry to our very own lovely clients are decking out their tootsies and fingers with some patriotic paint! Our Olympic athletes even got in on it with decorative red, white and blue french style manis! What better and on trend way to show your pride while cheering on our teams?
