Since 2014, the USWNT has been the team that captured not only America’s attention but the world’s. The team’s unprecedented two-year tear includes winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Algarve Cup, and World Cup, the latter becoming the third for the team, making the U.S. the winningest nation in Women’s World Cup history. And now, as the heavy favorites for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the team is ready to deliver their next record-breaking performance. Gear up for a historical finish with a perfectly summer feminine favorite.
