If you didn't know by now, the uniforms Team USA is wearing for the Opening Ceremony are a little ... let's go with off-the-wall. They're Ralph Lauren specials, topped by a beret. And the Internet seems to be hung up on that beret thing.
A quick check of Twitter gives us oh so many beret tweets. Pretty sure Team USA is going to single-handedly cause "beret" to trend.

To be fair, I have no idea how to wear a beret, either. Probably need a beret style guide.
