While nothing can beat Gisele Bündchen’s stunning sequin gown that she wore to the 2016 Olympics Opening Ceremony, fellow model and Brazilian native Alessandra Ambrosio’s Olympics crop top and cut-off denim shorts rocked to the Aug. 6 Olympic volleyball competitions, as reported by The Daily Mail, were most definitely noteworthy. Although not nearly as fancy as Bündchen's dress, Ambrosio's one-of-a-kind crop top was both practical and patriotic: The perfect attire for cheering on team USA.
Ambrosio's latest outfit from the 2016 Olympic games proved that sportswear can be just as chic as street-wear. Repping both her homes — Brazil and her current residence, USA — the model sported a USA Rio 2016 tee seemingly designed by none other than USA Olympic costume creator Ralph Lauren.
While the original tee is not of the cropped variety, it looks as though Ambrosio DIY-ed it to reveal a little extra skin. In true off-duty model fashion, she went on to pair her unique cropped shirt with cut-off jean shorts, Chanel espadrilles, and what looked to be a baseball hat.
Needless to say, Ambrosio’s attire was just right for a day of fun and games at the beach. If you are hoping to recreate her outfit, look no further. I have found the exact tee she used for her DIY, as well as a few more Olympic-themed shirts that would make just as cute crops. So what are you waiting for? Scroll down and get your DIY on.
