Sports Wear

You should totally be in London right now.

You're constantly running laps through the mall. You can deadlift five shopping bags without breaking a sweat. You dive into sample sales with perfect finesse. And when it comes to the latest trends, you always hit the mark.

But since shopping isn't an Olympic sport (yet), support Team USA with these eight Olympics-inspired additions to your wardrobe.

Just don't pull a Michael Phelps and wear them all at once.
