One of my favorite parts of the Olympics is seeing what the athletes from around the world are wearing for the opening ceremony. It's the most patriotic fashion show in the world. Designers put so much thought into creating these patriotic ensembles that are to be draped on their nation's top athletes. Ralph Lauren designed the outfits for the American athletes. Personally, I think he nailed it.
It's just so tacky-Christmas-sweater-chic. But really, I think RL pulled something off that could have easily been way too over the top, and, well, tacky. However, the outfit exudes classic winter cabin America. The boots I think really pulled the outfit together, with the red laces, and thick soles.
Win or lose, USA is going to look good. But I think they'll win. ;)
