What I Wore TODAY: Ryan Lochte

Rebecca Davis / Today

Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte stopped by TODAY this morning to talk about his new E! reality show, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” which premiered last night. The swimmer has been known to sport some interesting styles, but this morning he was looking casual and relaxed in:

  • Armani sweater
  • RVCA khaki pants
  • Todd's shoes

While his number one focus at the moment is swimming, Lochte said that when he does hang up his Speedo, he definitely sees a clothing line in his future. It’s a dream he’s had since he was young and says, “the brighter the colors, the weirder the outfit is, the happier I am.” His fashion advice to others – “just be yourself.”

As far as Olympic accessories we can expect to see on him in Brazil, Lochte tells us that as long as he’s on the podium, his grill will be making an appearance.

    Ryan Lochte gets his stare on during a training session on July 26, ahead of the London Games. One of five in the family, he has said he's a "coach's nightmare" for his out-of-the-pool shenanigans. For these Olympics, he told Matt Lauer, he took it easy on the extracurricular sports.
