Harriett Hendren: Even if you can't be an Olympian, you can dress like one

Herald-Leader fashion writerFebruary 12, 2014 

Nike's Sochi Collection of cold- weather styles includes the Aeroloft 800 Summit jacket for $450.


If watching the athletes at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, has you hankering for modern, sleek sportswear, several retailers offer Games-inspired collections.

One of the most stylish comes from Nike, which designed the apparel worn by the U.S. Olympic team on the medal stand. Items include the Aeroloft 800 Summit Jacket, $450, a fitted puffer jacket in a metallic silver with patriotic accents that include an American flag and Olympic team patches.

Other pieces include a women's hooded wool cape, $410, which looks more like an upscale hoodie, with leather sleeves, a long back hem and a scuba hood that zips to the chin.
