Get a Gold Medal In Style Like Sarah Schleper and Hayley Wickenheiser: Fashion Spotlight

US Ski Team Media DayHockey Canada Cup - Canada v Sweden

You don’t have to be an amazing athlete in order to bring home fashion gold this February, thanks to dozens of Olympic-inspired looks. So whether you’re packing for the Games, or planning to catch the highlights on the nightly news, you can rest assured that your style will be well represented in Vancouver this winter.

Take Olympic alpine skier and mommy Sarah Schleper. When Sarah isn’t soaring down the slopes, she’s keeping warm in comfortable winter wear, like a down filled jacket and snowboard pants. To get a similar look, check out boarding lines from Burton and Roxy. You don’t have to be an Olympic hopeful to appreciate the functionality of this outfit – all you need is a snow-filled backyard and a few hours with your kids!

“Hockey mom” has multiple meanings for Hayley Wickenheiser, the captain of Canada’s Olympic Women’s Hockey team. Olympic hockey is by far one of the most anticipated events at the Games, so why not sport a jersey in support of our athletes? Canuck fans can purchase Team Canada jerseys online at the Official Vancouver 2010 Olympic Store. Team U.S.A. jerseys can be purchased at the Team U.S.A. Shop.

When the torch arrives in Vancouver, the U.S. Olympic team will be looking their best in official team gear designed by none other than Ralph Lauren. But don’t feel left out – fans at home can also sport a similar look, thanks to Olympic-inspired polos and the “Make Your Own” Olympic loungewear line.

And who said you had to participate in the games in order to bring home some hardware? If you’re looking to show your Olympic pride, look no further than the exclusive Olympic Collection by Birks, Canada’s premier luxury accessory brand. This exclusive line includes earrings, pendants and necklaces – all of which feature the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games logo.
