Closing Ceremony Garb Is Crisp And Sporty - In Other Words, Very Polo

Maybe over the past two weeks you've found yourself motivated to do some extra crunches, sprint up that last flight of stairs, or spend a few more minutes on the treadmill. Or maybe last night's Closing Ceremony inspired you to create gold, silver, and bronze medals out of paper clips and yogurt lids a la The Office. No matter how you've celebrated the athletic spectacle that is the 29th Olympiad, the time has come to let your inner gold medalist out. And even if you're not as athletically super-skilled as the 110 medal-winning U.S. athletes, you can still cop their style, fashion-wise.

The team was styled for both the opening and closing ceremonies by iconic American designer Ralph Lauren—and who better to outfit the U.S. team than a man whose classic color palette has always included good old red, white, and blue? For the closing ceremonies, a non-structured free-for-all that encouraged the athletes to mix, mingle, and swap superhero stories, the U.S. strode out in crisp, comfy whites. You can score a Closing Ceremonies Polo of your own—emblazoned with the red and navy U.S.A. medallion, the Olympic Rings, and an oversized Polo pony—for $125. Pair it with a chic white denim skirt , also by Ralph Lauren ($149), and top with a dapper white newsboy cap ($41) and grosgrain ribbon belt ($9.50) for the full-on athletic effect.

If you want to keep the flame burning 'til 2012, when the summer games hit London, invest in an Olympic Games Track Jacket ($145), Closing Ceremony tennies ($69), and a sleek Olympic Striped Polo ($98) that'll make you look like a fierce competitor even if you can't do so much as a cartwheel.
