Today, the Winter Olympics opening ceremony kicked off in Beijing. For the Parade of Nations, each nation represented their countries by wearing the color of their flag or a traditional garment. And as someone who loves dressing for the colder months, some of these nations had the best ’fits I’ve seen all winter. Here, a roundup of 13 standout looks from the 2022 Winter Olympics opening ceremony.

Lululemon partnered with Team Canada for a look drenched in the red of the Canadian flag’s maple leaf. It’s definitely a ’fit I could see Drake wearing.

Team Finland’s uniform was by far one of my favorites — who doesn’t love the color gray, visor beanies, and pleated skirts?

Great Britain

Team Great Britain’s look was the most business casual of them all. The uniforms were designed by designer Ben Sherman. They wore the Union Jack loud and proud as sweaters.

Italy wearing capes made in the color of their national flag made me want a cape coat for the spring. It’s like a poncho worn with pride.

Team Nigeria represented their country by mixing tradition with practicality. They wore the green and white colors of their flag from head to toe. The uniforms were designed by sports apparel brand, Actively Black, which was founded by former NBA player Lanny Smith in 2020.

Team South Korea wore North Face, and the look was giving pro-snowboarder, which I am personally a fan of.

Team USA’s look was subtle yet classic — very weekend skiing in Vail or Aspen. They wore uniforms designed by American designer Ralph Lauren.
