Olympics Sporting Style

With the Olympics in full swing and Team GB killing it on the medals table, we’ve been glued to the telly, unable to take our eyes off sports that, before this week, we had never even watched. Maybe it’s the admiration we have for the incredible athletes competing in Rio, maybe it’s the bombardment of Olympics coverage on what seems like every channel… or maybe it’s because all the athletes seem to have a special skill: they look cool in sports gear. It may seem like an irrelevant anxiety, but for those of us who have been trying for years to look simultaneously sporty and fashion forward, seeing these Olympians pulling it off on the world’s stage is pretty irksome (and impressive). Of course, it may have something to do with them being in peak physical condition, but we’d like to think (pretend) that we can give them a run for their money, and look like we could walk straight from the podium to the party.
