Olympic Style: The Best Uniforms You Haven't Seen
Aside from gymnastics, the uniforms for the most high-profile Olympic events are pretty minimalist, emphasizing function over glitter and spectacle. The fashion-minded viewer won’t find many sartorial gems watching swimming, basketball, track or wrestling (unless you fancy a spandex-swathed crotch).

Dressage: Downton Abbey does the Olympics
In dressage, the rider leads the horse through a series of stately movements, a routine sometimes referred to as “the horse’s ballet.”
Although we were charmed by the costumes of the synchronized mermaids and the rhythmic gymnasts, the dressage getups were the best in show.
From the jaunty top hats to the double-breasted tailcoats, the dressage uniforms invoked the whimsy and tradition of old school London.
