The Olympics at Rio have really been one interesting ride for all of us. From cheering on our favourite athletes to watching in awe as so many conquered the tracks, fields and mats. And the best part is, a lot of them did it with amazing style! Here are a few style icons from the Rio Olympics 2016:
1. Rafael Nadal:
Not only is Rafael Nadal known as one of the all-time greatest tennis players (he’s won 14 Grand Slam singles titles, so far), the Spanish athlete is recognized for his preference for brightly-hued uniforms (think pink tees) on the court. Though he’s claimed to be someone who prefers casual outfits, he has good taste in formal wear as well. The suit made in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger as part of the TH Flex Rafael Nadal capsule collection made him look extra dapper. He’s certainly someone to look up to catch on trending styles.
2. Miles Chamley-Watson:
Olympic fencer Miles Chamley-Watson is one to watch at the Rio Games — and on the runways. The model most recently walked in Rochambeau’s show during New York Fashion Week: Men’s and has appeared on the catwalk for Public School and VFiles. Who knew fashion and fencing could go hand in hand?

3. Kevin Durant:
The Golden State Warriors player, who will be representing Team USA basketball, isn’t just known for his consistent shooting on the court — he makes slam dunks with his off-court style, too. Whether the former GQ style correspondent is attending a black-tie event or speaking at post-game press conferences, Durant is all about adding that pop of pattern or color to the latest fashion trends!
