13 Scarf-Tastic Olympic Uniforms Throughout History

July 20, 2012 by Miscellaneous

Here in the Scarves Dot Net office we have a soft spot for some good pomp and circumstance. (And we’ve been known to swing a scarf or two around our heads in celebration.) ; ) While watching all of the news roll in about the upcoming London Olympics, we can’t help but notice all of pretty little scarves amidst the opening ceremony uniforms — so we decided to compile a few for your perusing. ; )

While we are the first to fight for free-spirited fashion and the banishment of uniformity, there is just something so cool about all of the Olympians walking in the opening ceremonies supporting their country. If there’s ever a time to dress the same as your neighbor, the Olympics have to be it. ; )
