i LOVE the olympics. love them. the world-wide unity, the opening ceremonies, the sportsmanship…i really like all of it. but there is one huge reason why i am so into the olympics.
they are, for the most part, severely blah.
i am ooookaaaay with stella’s designs this year, and the ralph lauren opening ceremony getups were like, ok, i’m pretty sure the berets are for the french but i’ll deal with it.
the olympic athletes are a bunch of really attractive, really muscly people who deserve to look good on international television. foregoing practicality, here’s what i think the olympic uniforms should look like, except in red white and blue, you know, for america.
1. how great would the gymnasts look in a solid-colored leotard, and when they are not performing wearing one blue shoe and one read shoe? so sick.
2. again. solid colors. none of this boring crap. throw on a red swim cap, replace “dope” with “usa” (in that font) and you’re good to go.
3. i mean, yeah, you’ll get kinda hot running the track in this. but put on a red glitter sweatband and you’ll be fine.
i cannot find the sources for images one and two, so if you know them, let me know!
