Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony Watch Party Essentials

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! (Are you chanting along with us yet?)

The 2014 Winter Olympics are drawing closer, which means it's time to think about the all-important opening ceremonies (send your party invitation here). It's going to be hard to top the 2012 summer Olympics opening ceremony in London (I mean, Her Royal Highness was a Bond girl!), but we're sure Sochi and crew are going to try.

And when they do, we want to make sure we are prepared and all decked out in our favorite America gear. Ralph Lauren, the designer of the official American Olympics uniforms, also created a festive outfit for the opening ceremonies. Even though the $600 sweater is sold out, I'm sure you can find a pretty good replica at your local thrift shop.



But for some other less-expensive Americana garb, check out our favorite patrioric picks. Bonus: You can reuse them for Memorial Day and Fourth of July! Well, maybe not the snow hat or mittens. 


American Flag Wayfarers:

Yes, it's winter, but the sun still comes out. Especially when reflected off of all of the snow we are having. Plus, it's totally acceptable to wear sunglasses indoors in the name of America. These are just $12.99 from Target.


Go USA Mittens

These official mittens from the US Olympics will keep your digits warm while showing off your love for Team USA.


USA Throwback Beanie

To go along with your mittens, throw on this beanie to stay warm and really let everyone know what team you are repping. Get it at Urban Outfitters for just $24.  


American Flag Tub

How else are you going to keep your beer cold? And make sure you drink some of America's finest brews -- none of that imported BS. Get the tub from Chasing Fireflies for $38. 


DIY Nail Art

Show off your American spirit with some fancy USA nail art. Urban Outfitters has the kit with everything you need for just $5. 


American Kicks

These tennis shoes are on sale right now, so what better excuse to get them than the Winter Olympics? Grab yours for just $29.99 from Urban Outfitters.
