I have been Seeing Stars for a week now as a countdown to the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, and I am ready for the preliminaries to begin today! Tomorrow, Team U.S.A. will be outfitted in the Opening Ceremony Cardigan by Ralph Lauren (which is already Sold Out!), but Nike created a capsule called the Sochi Collection for the U.S.A. Medal Stand, which Nike describes as not only matching, but accentuating the country's confidence in victory. For the Summer Olympics in London in 2012, Nike also outfitted Team U.S.A. for the Medal Stand, and most Athletes chose to wear Nike's Volt Neon Shoe Collection, which brightened up the feet of many of the athletes and started a very Bright Fashion Trend of Neon Yellow Sneakers. I am hoping to see a lot of Nike's Sochi Collection as Team U.S.A. wins Gold in the Cold! And I am sure more Fashion Trends will come out of the Olympics from Nike, the one I have my eye on is this Aeroloft 800 Summit Jacket, which feature UV-reflecting titanium nano-coating at the exterior and has 800-fill goose down inside- for most of us this means: "a Cool Silver Puffer Jacket"! Another trend we will see emerge at the Olympics from Nike is Still Neon Yellow, and the Sneaker of choice will be the Lunar Flyknit Chukka (sort of a short hightop) in Black with a Neon Yellow Sole. So yes, for me it is not just about the Games, but about the Fashions too! Nike has their Sochi Collection online now, so I have pulled together some Gold Medal Stand Worthy Sweatshirts, Sweatpants, Leggings, T-Shirts, Sneakers, and Accessories for your Future Olympian! Since the Aeroloft 800 Summit Jacket is not available in kids sizes, I found these 4 outerwear options!
Enjoy the Games!
