They Play Hard, They Dress Even Harder: Best Dressed Athletes

King James is a king of style

When I was out shopping for blazers and sport coats with one of my friends last week, he kept mentioning how he wanted to get that “Dwayne Wade Look”. I chuckled as he continued, “He had on this orange and brown outfit one day, and I want to get that same look, you know that Dwayne Waaaade look”. Well my friend based his opinion of Dwayne Wade’s style on one outfit he saw him wear in a magazine or on tv. . . little did he know that Dwayne Wade is more often than not, found looking quite stylish. But Dwayne Wade isn’t the only professional athlete who dresses so well he could double as a model, there’s a slew of well-dressed men in the athletic world.


My top picks (in no particular order):

1. Lebron James
He’s called King James for a reason and style is definitely one.

Lebron, dude. . .you look fly

Lebron’s casual look is really cool as he’s posing w/ Jimmy Kimmel

2. David Beckham
He’s always at the top of my best-dressed list. What can I say those Brits just have great style. Not only is he the new face of Emporio Armani, he also has a wife that’s equally as chic- Victoria Beckham.

Classic perfection in this suit

He really has a thing for the “one shirt tail in, one shirt tail out” look

see. . .he ‘s doing it again

3. Thierry Henry
Some of you Americans may not know who he is (lol), but my international readers and true sports fans know that he is a sharp dresser. His charm and style has landed him a contract as an international “brand ambassador” for Tommy Hilfiger.

I love the suit, great color & material

4. Dwayne Wade
He always shows up to award shows and events wearing the latest trends and wearing them well. And besides. . . it seems like alot of gentleman are trying to get the “Dwayne Wade look”.

Honorable Mentions:

Will Demps – he’s most women’s picture of perfection and his fashion sense has allowed him to snag Hollywood hotties like R&B singer Letoya Luckett.


Tom Brady – he dresses how I expect and want athletes to dress- stylish & clean. I’m sure his girlfriend, supermodel Gisele, gives him plenty of fashion tips.



Alex Rodriguez – he has a really classic style that has made him a GQ favorite.



Terrell Owens – some say cocky athletes always have great style. . .hmmm, I don’t know about that, but T.O definitely does.




Reggie Bush
– he’s actually one of the best dressed men in the NFL, he dresses up & down almost flawlessly. He has the complete Urban Gentleman look, he just doesn’t have the UG swagger or class quite yet. . .but I’m sure he’ll get there soon.
