After four years of anticipation, the London 2012 Olympics are finally here — and we’ve definitely caught Olympics fever. Given the games’ history of adorning the world’s best athletes in gold, silver and bronze, there’s no better time than now to give your wardrobe the Midas Touch. Here’s how to channel your inner golden gladiator in time for Friday’s Summer 2012 Olympics opening ceremony.
Vogue India fell head over heels for Olympics-inspired fashion in its July 2012 issue, and this was the mag’s general consensus: Go for the gold. From warrior collars to sequined blouses and metallic mini-dresses to fierce cuff bracelets, these looks put a bold spin on gladiator glam.
From its heavily embellished Gota border to its powerful use of fuchsia, this Navy & Pink Georgette Gota Border Saree has warrior written all over it. Pair it with these impactful Sterling Silver Engraved Hanging Earrings or these Sterling Silver and Red Glass Earrings to ensure you’ll reign supreme over any fashion scene
For another gladiator-influenced look, try accenting Luxemi’s sheen Gold Sequin Salwar with Red Contrast with our Circular Gold Disc Headpiece. Thanks to style icons like Nicole Richie and Alicia Keys, the classic headpiece is just as stylish now as it was in the early days of Olympic fashion!
Want to give your favorite saree an Olympic-worthy makeover? This Gold Sequin Blouse by Wild Orchid packs a powerful gold punch that will make any outfit ready for the winner’s podium. Luxemi’s accessory collection also has heavy collars to match every accessory style.
No matter what country you’ll be cheering for at the London Olympics 2012 (our money is on India to win archery, badminton and wrestling!), a gorgeous gold look is the perfect way to celebrate. Check through the rest of our collection for more glam gold sarees, salwars and accessories.
