The Opening Ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London are this Friday and we could not be more excited! With all of the media coverage, we couldn’t help but notice how fantastic the ladies of the games look. Not only are they in top notch shape, but they dress stylishly too.
At this year’s Wimbledon tournament, Maria Sharapova sported a Nike tennis dress inspired by the champion herself. This sporty ensemble follows the neutral and neon trend of this season with the addition of pretty feminine pleats. Her whole outfit is available at affordable prices for all tennis enthusiasts. Get yourself a fancy racquet case like this one from Kate Spade for a fashion forward stroll to the court.
We are absolutely in awe of track star Lolo Jones’ athletic speed and feel inspired to hit the pavement. Lolo recently started an ad campaign with Asics running gear, one of the top brands for runners of all levels. Super comfortable apparel and supportive shoes are a must for any type of running. Go for the gold with glittery hair ties to keep your locks out of your way. Don’t forget your music!
For these ladies, off-season training is the key for preparing for the Games. Hope Solo has been spotted in colorful gear leaving the gym or practice. Whether you prefer an indoor or outdoor workout, basic pieces like capri leggings and a comfy zip-up jacket are necessities, and here are some of our favorites. Hope recently teamed up with Nike to offer helpful tips about toning up. Need a great workout? Check out the Nike Training Club smart phone application for customized workouts from Hope Solo and other Olympic athletes like Shaun Johnson!
Remember, you don’t have to be an Olympian to dress like one!
