Olympic-Themed Stuff You'll Actually Want to Buy

I can't leave a sports game without a a giant foam finger bigger than most of my closet and a124-ounce souvenir soda cup that would give Mayor Bloomberg hives.

But since I won't actually be going to the Olympics and can't get into the athletic spirit through that sort of paraphanelia, I'll have to find some other alternatives. But run-of-the mill white t-shirts stamped with a blocky "USA" font or classic Olympic rings aren't my thing. They're not cheap, and I won't wear them more than once every four years (if ever).

Instead, I'll pick up a special edition item from one of my favorite brands or designers (Ralph Lauren, Charlotte Olympia, Proenza Schouler, Adidas) who probably feel the same way about Olympics-themed pieces as I do. Whether designed for athletes or for spectators, each of their items in the slideshow hit their marks perfectly.

More gold accessories need to be this exact color: deep and regal, instead of that ubiquitous yellow-y faded version.

Tell everyone it's a thrift store find from that semester spent living abroad.

With a sliver of white and small red label, it's the most subtle Olympic-themed thing we've seen.

Originally designed for winners of the 1972 Olympics, these reissued sneakers now have Union Jack lining, too.

Ditch the beret and wear the blazer with printed loafers as a preppy fall staple.

Only Stella could pull off cartoon underwear that's pretty and sweet and not at all creepy.

Wear it as a sophistocated statement necklace that doesn't feel too neon, charm-y and Pretty Little Liars-like.
