Ralph Lauren Reveals U.S. Olympic Closing Ceremony Outfits

The designer released a pair of his sketches for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic team on Wednesday, and unlike Stella McCartney’s Spandex competition uniforms, which were called “too blue,” Ralph Lauren went with nearly all white. For the ladies, he created shirt-dresses and booties, and for the men, button-downs and trousers. Both outfits are accessorized with newsboy caps and red, white, and blue belts. His opening ceremony looks will be revealed later on; in the meantime, selected pieces from the Ralph Lauren 2012 Team USA Olympic Collection are already on sale at RalphLauren.com.
