With the Olympics in full swing, chances are most of you aren’t taking in the games in Sochi itself, but representing your country at home, in bars or at Olympic parties with friends. While yoga pants and a sweatshirt scream the ideal clothing choice when catching a Team USA hockey game at 5 am, perhaps by the time the re-broadcast skates around you’ll want a different look.
We went with an American theme, with an emphasis on layers. Tank top, lightweight denim shirt, cardigan and cuff the sleeves, top with a leather jacket for colder climates. Comfort is key, so wedge sneakers or boots will compliment the outfit nicely. The red pants can easily be subbed for jeans, bright blue, or a more subdued maroon red — it’s all about the Team USA colors.
Instead of picking a t-shirt that showcases USA in bold lettering, we went a different route with the still all-American symbol, the bald eagle. A star bracelet and a Team USA hat complete the look. We recommend picking a nail polish in a bright red or blue hue, but a silver would work nicely as well. Root for the home team in a patriotic way!
