Celebrate the Summer Games with some Olympics-inspired gear, which can be used well after the closing ceremony.
Our excitement for the Summer Games is growing as the Olympics loom.
In just a few more days, the torch will be lit in Rio, athletes will shine and we’ll try to push all the scares and scandals to the back of our minds. To celebrate the spectacle, pick up some Olympics-inspired gear, which can be used well after the closing ceremony.
Wildfox Olympic Hearts Cropped Sweatshirt ($98 at shopbop.com). Who loves the Olympics? You do! Show it with this cute take-off on the rings logo. The sweatshirt is coolly casual, with a cropped, raw hem and slouchy fit — perfect for viewing parties or marathon sessions on the couch.
Plae Max Gold ($65 at goplae.com). Your kids can channel their inner Michael Johnson (or Usain Bolt) in these cute kicks in metallic gold. The uber-cool shoe company has a Summer Games Collection, which also includes some more low-key color combos, like green and yellow for Brazil, and red, white and blue with gold-dipped Velcro straps.
Jamberry Aim High Nail Wraps ($18 at jamberry.com). The 18 strips in this USA-themed mixed-pack of adhesive nail wraps will keep your accent nails patriotic through the entire fortnight. The design is part of an extensive Go for Gold Collection, with $3.50 from each purchase going to help fund female athletes going to the games.
Polo Team USA Sailcloth Tote ($398 at ralphlauren.com). Team USA’s official outfitter is offering the clothing and accessories you’ll see the athletes sporting at the opening and closing ceremonies. And they also have this great tote, made of fully lined sailcloth with sturdy rope handles. There’s an interior zip pocket, sewn-on appliqués and Team U.S.A. printed on the side.
Havaianas Brazil Sandal in Citrus Yellow ($24 at us.havaianas.com). Toast the host country by wearing one of its great exports — Havaiana flip-flops — in the country’s colors of yellow and green. Of course, the company also offers a slew of U.S.A.-themed sandals for men and women, including a stars-and-stripes-themed pair with gold straps.
