In just a little over a week, the 2014 Winter Olympics will begin. While most are focused on the stats and the sports, we're going to take a look at what these athletes will be wearing.
The 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, are setting the bar for fashion high. From speed-skaters to skiers, designers have focused on a Christmas theme. For the US teams, Ralph Lauren has attempted to create a patriotic version of the ugly Christmas sweater for the opening ceremony. While the US is going for a more subtle look, Norway's curling team has gone with a vibrant red, white and blue zig-zag pattern. The design is said to resemble the Norwegian flag. Germany has settled on a bright, rainbow-ish outfit, almost defying Russia's recent anti-gay laws.
Each country has a design to resemble their culture and spirit for the games. Sports and fashion seem to be a perfect match for this event
