We often get so caught up watching a sports game (especially the Olympics!) that we find ourselves yelling at the TV louder than we do during the Barneys Warehouse sale. In the midst of all the excitement, we often forget to appreciate that cute necklace worn by a tennis player (surely for good luck) or the intricate hairdo a gymnast pulled off to keep their hair out of her face.

Looking back, some of our favorite Olympians have truly made fabulous efforts to keep stylish both on and off the field. Over the years, we’ve also seen such impressive red carpet looks from some of these all-stars that we’re convinced the stereotypes around “jokes” are pure myth.

Take a look through the gallery to take a look at our pick of the 50 most stylish Olympians of all time. Which one’s your favorite? Tell us in the comments below!
