The outfits worn at the Opening Ceremonies at the Olympics are always a sight to behold. Pictured is the 2012 attire, which was unveiled July 10. Following is a look at some of the best (or worst) outfits worn by US Olympians over the years.
US Olympians looked very smart in their suits and ties during the Opening Ceremony in Seoul in 1988.
The athletes' outfits at the 1992 Opening Ceremony in Albertville, France were very understated.
As Magic Johnson waved to fellow members of the United States Olympic team it is a wonder he could see over those snazzy hats that all the Olympians were wearing in Barcelona.
Choosing dark outfits, the Americans definitely stood out against the background at the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer.
Seems as though someone got a little carried away with the monochromatic look at the Atlanta games.
US Olympians went with old-school hats to accompany their parkas in 1998 in Nagano.
US athletes donned these conservative threads for the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney Olympics. At least all the athletes were prepared for the following year's Fourth of July parades.
Of course, matching gloves are a wardrobe requirement during the Winter Olympics. Michelle Kwan shows hers off during the Salt Lake City games.

The outfits athletes wore in the Torino Winter Olympics seem very comfortable . . . and warm.
Did the preppy look for basketball players start in Beijing back in 2008? From left, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, Jason Kidd, Chris Paul, Carlos Boozer, Deron Williams, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony sure seemed to buy into the movement with their outfits.
The United States can be proud of the ensemble sported by athletes in the Opening Ceremony in Vancouver in 2010. The knitted caps are a nice, personal touch.
