Today, Ralph Lauren unveiled the official Team USA Opening Ceremony Uniforms, which the company describes as embodying “the spirit of American athleticism and sportsmanship.” The 2012 Olympics start in London on July 27.
According to the new release, the uniforms feature “classic silhouettes in a timeless palette of navy and white with pops of red.” Much of the Olympic collection is also on sale to the public.
The women’s look includes a white blouse and fitted navy blazer, a cotton scarf with red, white and navy stripes and a knee-length skirt. The men’s look includes a white club-collar sport shirt, a red and navy tie, tailored double-breasted blazer and cuffed trousers.
So how do you rate this look? Is it a fashion win? Will these looks stand out during the opening ceremonies?
My opinion: The look is more dressy than sporty. My favorite piece is the women’s scarf, which is fun and youthful. I’d say they’re nice, but I don’t have a “wow” reaction.
