As the 2012 London Olympics are nearing the end, our medal count is strong but we are in a game of "cat and mouse" with the China athletes. It seems every time I check the medal stats we are flipping back and forth positions with china, bidding for first place. If you are feeling the TEAM USA spirit like I am you have been searching threw the stores for a fashionable way to wear our colors! It’s mostly about doing simple pieces, not decking ones self out like an American flag Christmas tree head to toe (unless you want to then send us pics!). I have collected a few of my favorite pieces for you that give team spirit that you can wear with pride!
We are so lucky we are in the heat of summer because we can default to super cute dresses and shorts! I have had an amazing pair of American Flag shorts for like 8 years and the more I wash them the cooler they look!
Top Shop put out two pairs of awesome American Flag shorts, one pair found here, that is a bit more vintage looking here (kind of like my pair after 8 years of wash and wear). Contrasted by another pair found here that has a fresher looking print set off on a white short. Cant go wrong either way, perhaps both depending on the mood hehehehe... Urban Outfitters put out this dress which I just have to have, makes looking fabulous effortless! It is that lazy summer day dress, watching the finals of your favorite Olympics event or a casual summer backyard barbeque.
Esty is a GREAT place to look for pieces to finish off any specialty outfit AND supporting independent artists at the same time! Like these adorable heart shaped American Flag earrings found here.
If you are a t-shirt and jeans kind of gal like myself on most days I found this adorable American Flag t-shirt here at my FAVORITE website EVER, SHOPBOP!!!!!!! It is 9 times out of 10 my default place for any outfit. They ship over night and are great to work with if you need a freakish fast outfit. So I was not surprised by my next fabulous discovery, by Catherine Malandrino found here. I would normally say decking yourself head to toe in any flag is a bit cheesy but Catherine Malandrio has put together a gold metal worthy sweetly tailored knee length, belted dress with a tailored collar. She has combined layers of Silk Chiffon with off key bits of the stars and stripes in a very classy feminine but tailored silhouette.
