Must-Have Mondays: Olympic Style

The Olympics are well under way, and if there’s one thing the Opening Ceremonies taught us (besides that the Queen would make a great cameo in the next James Bond film), it’s that every country showed their Olympic pride through their super stylish uniforms. Even though many of us aren’t lucky enough to be spectators, we can certainly dress like one. In honor of the 2012 London Games, here are 12 festive pieces to show your Team USA spirit and medal-winning style.

Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
