In case you haven’t heard, 17-year-old Michael Christian Martinez made history by being the first Filipino figure skater to represent the Philippines at the Winter Olympics. Born in a country foreign to snow, the teen Olympian has no where to go but up as he competes for the gold beginning with the qualifiying rounds on Thursday, February 13.
As we look forward to seeing the Filipino talent shine bright in the world stage, here’s a bevy of skater-inspired pieces that will surely make you sigh. Airy, sparkly, and not to mention sexy, we often wonder how female skaters don't get bothered by the cold. Oh well, all we know is that we don't mind that they have clothing items named after their sport if it means we get a chance look as lovely and ethereal as them.
Click on the gallery to see mesh bodysuits, embellished peplums, and of course, skater skirts and dresses that will surely make you excited to watch the Olympics!
Good luck Michael!
