What To Wear: Olympic Event

03 Aug What To Wear: Olympic Event

by ATFDC Contributor Cami Nezam

First and foremost, CONGRATULATIONS to Olympic gold medalist, Gabby Douglas from VA, for winning the Gold in the All-Around Gymnastics, Michael Phelps from MD, for breaking the Olympic record for most medals by any athlete and the entire TeamUSA!

Watching the opening ceremony and the subsequent games thisĀ first week of the 2012 Olympics got me thinking about Olympic fashion for the general observer. Hmm what would I wear to Olympic Park to witness the games?

Well obviously it depends on the sport you are attending but one of my simple but favorite outfits for an Olympic event features a maxi dress, gladiator sandals, silver jewelry, aviator sunglasses, and a red cross-body bag to add the full effect of red, white and blue. This outfit is comfortable and trendy, so you will definitely be spectating in style!

Then I thought, LondonĀ  weather can be rainy and a bit dreary so I would need a look that can factor in the weather but still be cute.

For a more fun look, this outfit is a perfect inspiration! Union jack high-waisted shorts with a red, ruffled tank top, paired with converse sneakers and a white tote bag.
