The WNBA season is approaching the one-month mark, and there have been plenty of exciting plays, performances and games to witness so far. Along with the action on the hardwood, a number of players have stood out with their eccentric fashion choices.
Vibrant ensembles, luxury clothing brands and stylish accessories are some ways athletes in "The W" have shown off their fashion sense. Others have used their outfits to bring attention to the situation surrounding Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner. Griner was arrested in February at a Moscow-area airport and the U.S. government now considers her to be "wrongfully detained." Players have worn shirts, pins and more to raise awareness about bringing her back to the United States.
This week, the eye-catching fits continued with looks featuring influential music legends, business attire and more.
Here is a look at some of the best fits around the WNBA:
Kayla Thornton and Arike Ogunbowale, Dallas Wings
Thorton's attire was a vibrant Nike fit and a necklace with her initials as the pendant.

Erica Wheeler, Tiffany Hayes, Monique Billings and Megan Walker, Atlanta Dream
This Dream foursome brought out some eye-catching fits ahead of Friday's matchup with the Chicago Sky.

Hayes showed up wearing a Chicago Bulls star DeMar DeRozan's Compton High School jersey replica. Walker showed solidarity for Griner with her hoodie featuring the Mercury player's face. She also arrived to the arena in a sweet ride.

Marina Mabrey and Arike Ogunbowale, Dallas Wings
Before taking the court against the Los Angeles Sparks Tuesday, Mabrey sent a message with her t-shirt. The clothing had graphic images of herself with the words "this is my kitchen." The phrase stems from a tweet she posted in 2018 as a response to "male women's basketball haters." She's worn apparel that featured her saying in the past, with some available for purchase on her PWRFWD site.
