Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s funny what you can get away with wearing when your city is hosting the Olympics. From body flags to body paint, here’s a glimpse of some of the fashion trends you may only get away with during Vancouver 2010.

Hand-marked letters, painted faces, stapled-on flags, and those popular white boots that look like Calgary ’88 leftovers.

While we might see Team Canada jerseys in Vancouver year-round, the international jerseys have made the crowd that much more colourful.
