10 Olympic-Inspired Fashions You'll Love
MARKUS LUPFER MEDAL SWEATER
Get your hands on a gold and a silver medal without breaking a sweat thanks to this sequin-embellished merino wool sweater. Wear it with white jeans or cutoffs and be sure to have a response to the question, "What did you win them for?" (For your world-renowned style skills, of course.)
METALLIC MANOLO BLAHNIK HEELS
Some people dream about earning a gold, a silver and a bronze at the Olympics, while others fantasize about owning this pair of gold-silver-and-bronze Manolos (designed in honor of the 2012 games). To each her own. (Available by special order at the Manolo Blahnik store in N.Y.C.)
MARION VIDAL WINNING MEDAL NECKLACE
Most Olympic tchotchkes have an expiration date (as in, you really can't get away with wearing them after the closing ceremony), but this blue ribbon piece is a subtle nod to the sporting event, meaning it's just as appropriate to keep rocking in the fall as it is at your Olympics viewing party.
STELLA MCCARTNEY OLYMPICS BRIEFS
If you're excited about the year's biggest sporting event, but don't want to flaunt it, we recommend getting into the spirit with these whimsical designer knickers, embroidered with the Union Jack, a rainbow, stars, a London taxi cab and a gymnast.
BUTTER LONDON HEAVY MEDAL POLISH
Bored with that neon polish you've been wearing all summer? Honor the athletes by painting your digits bronze, silver or gold depending how on how winning you feel. Or do a combo of all three for a custom metallic mani.
GAP OLYMPIC VINTAGE TANK
The Gap's collection of themed retro-inspired tees are soft, flattering and, most important, they don't look like they came straight from an overpriced tourist trap outside the Olympic Village in London.
TEAM U.S.A. GROSGRAIN BELT
Just because you're not going to be walking with Ryan Lochte (sigh) and the other pro athletes at the opening ceremony doesn't mean you can't get access to their duds, designed by official Olympic outfitter Ralph Lauren. And with all the controversy surrounding the uniforms, this red-white-and-blue-striped belt is sure to be a valuable memento someday.
SMYTHSON "GAME ON" NOTEBOOK
Keep track of which country is scoring the most medals, make a note of the competitions you want to watch or simply practice writing your name and Ryan Lochte's name with hearts around it (can you tell we're obsessed?) in this pocket-size notebook.
Who says you can support only one country during the Olympics? Pay homage to a handful – make that, wristful – of nations by having an international arm party and stacking a bunch of these rope charm bracelets.
FRENCH CONNECTION OLYMPIC BIKINI
Hard-core swimming fans may choose to show their support by wearing the long-sleeve, long-pant swimsuits that the pros do, but we find this two-piece bandeau, featuring Team U.S.A.'s colors and metallic detailing, much more flattering and feminine.
