Where To Buy Team USA Merch To Look Pretty Patriotic Come August 5

Chances are, whether you have to work, run your household, study, or waste a day in bed nursing a hangover, it's unlikely you'll get to see all of the 2016 Olympics. So, no matter where you end up, you probably want to know where to buy Team USA merch, so you can look fabulously patriotic whatever you're doing – be it wiping baby puke off your shirt, picking up your pooch's poop, or completing tedious paperwork.

So first off, you have a decision to make: Do you choose the official 2016 USA Olympic Costumes or go for a more casual vibe with Team USA merchandise? The choice depends on a few factors, including how much you love fashion, plus how patriotic and sporty you are. Major followers of fashion will want to immediately go down the USA Olympic Costume route, as this year, the Olympic Costumes are again created by Ralph Lauren. These garments are an easy way to kill two birds with one very stylish stone; purchasing one means you'll have a piece of wearable history and an item of clothing (or an accessory) created by a fashion giant. Although many of the official 2016 USA Olympic Costumes are particularly reasonable, to say they're Ralph Lauren, there's the odd item that might be a little out of many a millennial's budget, like the duffel bag that's basically the same price as an average designer bag.

But, considering there's only one 2016 Olympic Games, you might want to treat yourself to a bit of Ralph Lauren. If so, you can pick up these pieces directly from the Ralph Lauren website, or from online stockists of the brand.

You can pick up similar styles that will be a hit for fans of the athleisure trend, or those wanting to look extra rad on their morning run.
