It’s been four years, but the time has come once again for the winter Olympics. It sometimes seems that fashion and the Olympics do not really coincide, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Team USA hit the opening ceremony this year in great style, wearing the latest Olympic parade uniform designed by Ralph Lauren. Also, we can’t forget the figure skating costumes that include beautiful bejeweled tops or floaty chiffon skirts. While we obviously cannot imitate the Olympic fashions literally in our everyday lives, we can still use it as an inspiration. So, why not go for the gold? A gold medal, that is.
This Fashionista wears a brilliant gold necklace, resembling a gold medal straight from the Olympics. It is a subtle nod to the games while keeping true to her individual style. She keeps it from being costume-y by putting her own urban spin on the look; she is wearing fitted sweatpants and tennis shoes with an asymmetric-cut sweatshirt. From head to toe, this Fashionista looks casual, cool and eye-catching. It looks simply effortless.
This necklace is a timeless style that can be incorporated into a variety of different wardrobes. It will add a little extra bling factor to any look. Go for something on a smaller scale that is delicate and elegant. Or, you can go bold with your bling and wear it as a statement piece. This will amp up the glam factor of any outfit you wear. Whatever your preference, I suggest following this Fashionista’s direction and go for the gold.
