The Olympic torch has landed in London and is making its final trip to the stadium!
As excitement electrifies all around the world, spectators are starting to pull out some patriotic garb. And for those who don’t want to break the bank and order official Olympic gear, retro American looks are back as we cheer on the great Team U.S.A.
These easy pieces are a great investment and stay in style even after the games. I mean really, when do the Olympics ever go out of style?
Gap has a special collection of vintage graphic tees for men and women donning past Olympic logos. Granted, not all wearers were alive during these games, but the Olympics is all about historic moments. Pair these with cute colored cropped denim for an easy summer look.
American Apparel knows how to make the stars and stripes fun and edgy. Guys and gals can try the blue denim jacket (see featured image) or unisex classic tank with a screen-printed American flag. Does it get more American than that?
Want to channel your inner-gymnast? Try these American Apparel nylon star leggings.
Urban Outfitters also offers some rockin’ stars and stripes legwear. Check out the Tripp NYC Retro Flag Jean and House of Holland Americana Flag Tight.
