It was an explosive start for the Rio Olympics earlier―quite literally because of the amazing fireworks display and performances. But what really stole the show were the athletes’ fashion during the opening ceremony parade.
Team France walked the parade in crisp white suits and navy jackets made by Lacosté. These outfits also look like they can be used for candle-lit dinners during their free days.
The host country did not disappoint with their look as Team Brazil showed up in green and white ensembles topped with a dark blue blazer. The female athletes in particular looked so fresh in their peacock feather-printed dresses and straw hats.
The athletes from Indonesia seemed to be a little festive earlier as two of them wore a traditional costume clad in gold. Meanwhile, the others sported a suit decorated with striking reds, including a bird, and even red pants.
We see laidback pieces from the collab of Stella McCartney and Adidas for Great Britain’s opening ceremony outfits―shorts for the men and big-pleated skirts for the women. You’ll also see more of these designs throughout the games since Stella created a whole collection for the athletes.
Another preppy number was brought by Beanpole for Team South Korea. Dark blazers cover pastel-colored shirts and is completed with playful polka-dotted ties and bright scarves. These are paired with white pants, black sneakers, and striped socks.
