Next Unveil Team GB Olympic Formal Wear

Next have unveiled the formal wear Team GB will be wearing for official duties at the London 2012 Olympics, but the result has split popular fashion opinion.

The dark-coloured outfits look like a slightly better recreation of the retailer’s staff uniforms, with the women being given somewhat tacky Union flag embellished Lycra dresses and unflattering school-style shoes, while the men have a navy suit and tie combination, paired with bulky black shoes. But comfort is the priority here – the men’s suits have breathable underarm mesh panels, while the women’s jackets are formed of hi-tech stretch jersey.

In case you are a fan of the Olympic looks, replicas of selected pieces are on sale now in 31 Next stores, including the men’s suit at £220, and a Union Jack clutch bag for £25.

What do you think of the uniforms? Have your say!
