Simone Biles started the 2021 Olympics in style, arriving today at the Olympic Village in Tokyo.
The 24-year-old Olympian struck a pose with fellow gymnast Jordan Chiles outside the village, against a wooden fence embellished with the event’s five Olympic rings logo. Biles paired up with Chiles in red, white and blue tie-dye T-shirts from Polo Ralph Lauren that featured “Team USA” graphics. She also wore black bike shorts for the occasion, keeping the ensemble casual and comfortable. His t-shirt costs $ 70 on Macys.com.
For shoes, the sports star wore a pair of chunky white sneakers. Her shoes appeared to feature a lace-up silhouette and chunky wedge soles. Similar pairs have been spotted on celebrities like Bella Hadid, Lizzo and Hailey Bieber this year, due to their comfort and height increase. It’s not the first time Biles has worn white sneakers this season, however; the athlete has donned numerous pairs of Nike’s over the years during his previous partnership with the brand, and recently wore a casual pair of leather for a lazy afternoon last week.
For this year’s Olympic uniforms, Ralph Lauren isn’t the only American brand to create Olympic loungewear. Kim Kardashian’s Skims brand was announced last month as a new designer for Team USA, creating underwear, sleepwear and loungewear for female American Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Both brands will be worn inside and outside the Olympic Stadium, and their same Team USA pieces will launch designed in limited edition collections this summer.
Biles is a champion in both athletics and fashion. She currently has a long-term partnership with Athleta, where she will launch her own line of performance clothing and be a partner for the brand’s athletic and athletic wear. In the past, Biles has also collaborated on athletic collections with GK Elite Sportswear and Spieth America, as well as with Nike, Caboodles and Beats by Dr. Dre.
When it comes to shoes, Biles tends to keep his selection classic and minimalist. The star gymnast was seen in numerous pairs of Nike sneakers during her latest partnership with the sports brand, and was recently spotted wearing APL’s TechLoom Bliss sneakers. For formal occasions, she can be seen in strappy sandals, platform and open-toe pumps in neutral tones from brands like Schutz and Badgley Mischka.
