The Olympics are a time for all of the best athletes in the world come together to show off their talents. In addition to this, they often show off their fashion sense. Some are cute, others are creepy, but there is a significant amount of weird Olympics fashion.
Here at Get Ugly Sweaters, we love the weird and the ugly. So in the spirit of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, let’s take a look back at the weirdest outfits in Olympic history, shall we?
France, Albertville 1992
Let’s just get one of the weirdest ones out of the way first. France hosted the 1992 Winter Olympics and started it off with a bang—a human snow globe.
Team Canada, Barcelona 1992
Nothing screams the 90s more than colorful patterned outfits and fanny packs. This may have been during the summer olympics but man, is it cool.
Team Germany, Sochi 2014
We can applaud the German team for their use of color. These outfits, while a bit out there, are able to catch the eye of anyone.
Team USA, Sochi 2014
Now, this is something we can get behind. These Ralph Lauren designed sweaters are so ugly, they become fashionable— which, as you know, is our brand.
Team South Korea, Albertville 1992
I know what you’re thinking, “1992 again?!” The answer is, of course. The 90s are categorized by horrible fashion trends. It’s endearing, just like these lime green outfits.
Team Norway, Pyeongchang 2018
The Norwegian team has been rocking these crazy patterned pants for four Olympics now. Choosing the best/worst is impossible so we went with the most recent ridiculous outfit.
