For Style Panel‘s challenge this week, FASHION Magazine gave us a really fun, Olympics-themed task: pick one piece out of the Bay‘s always-amazing Olympics collection and style it into a Games-appropriate yet stylish look. I’m a huge Olympics fanatic, especially after having my own city host the Winter Olympics two years ago and being there for all the energy and magic, so I was so excited about this challenge.
For any of you other Olympics nuts out there, the key is to not wear every single national-pride-emblazoned piece you have all at the same time. I stuck with just my Team Canada T-shirt, which happened to have a very femme cut perfect for tucking into skirts, and then worked the rest of my outfit around it. You can be a bit cheeky and festive with the rest of your look, obviously (I mean, a red skirt with a red and white top…it’s toeing into Canadiana overkill territory), but in the case of my fellow Canadians, more than one maple leaf can get a bit distracting.
Have you guys all been keeping up with the Olympics as well or are you not quite as into it?
