Back in 2014 my sister, cousin and I came up with USA Dress Day as a way to represent team USA during the Sochi Olympics. Well with the Opening Ceremonies tomorrow, guess what’s backkkkkk?
So the idea is easy: wear red, white, and blue everyday during the Olympics. Here’s a refresher on the rules we came up with last time:
- You must wear a combination of at least two patriotic colors every day.
- Fridays are extra patriotic so wear red, white & blue. Also, crazy American props (gold medals, bandanas, hats) are encouraged.
- Stretch the colors as necessary, aka blue is not limited to just navy blue; it can encompass all shades, but must be worn with either red or white per Rule #1. If you don’t have a lot of red, white, or blue, please wear maroon or cream and wash your clothes for the sake of others
- Incorporate gold, silver & bronze into an outfit on medal days in support of your favorite sports or athletes. Again, props are encouraged.
Here are some examples of what 2014 looked like:
Luckily, this time around it’s summer and I have way more summer clothes than winter clothes. Follow along the next few weeks on Instagram, and share your pictures using the hashtag #USADressDay
Let the games begin! ??
