The WNBA season is underway, with teams and players already making statements on the court with their play. Off the hardwood, athletes are also turning heads with their wardrobe selections.
All kinds of fits were on display during the first full week of the season. Mother's Day was last Sunday, and some players took the opportunity to don some mom-centric fits. Other athletes made pop culture nods by honoring movies and television shows with their apparel. In addition, leather ensembles, business casual attire and even vibrant-colored tracksuits made appearances on the pregame red carpet.
One player literally took fashion into her own hands, donning some self-designed pieces on the pregame runway.
Here's a look at some of the more eye-catching fits from the past week across the WNBA:
Skylar Diggins-Smith, Phoenix Mercury
The fit by Diggins-Smith on Saturday resembled Keanu Reeves' iconic character Neo from "The Matrix." She played along with the likeness, quoting a classic line from the film.

Her outfit was courtesy of teammate Kristine Anigwe's fashion brand, KA Originals. The leather trench coat is a one-of-one product, according to Diggins-Smith.
Jasmine Thomas, Connecticut Sun
The Sun's team colors are white, blue and orange, but Thomas decided on a lime-green look paired with a Louis Vuitton handbag ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Los Angeles Sparks.
