The New York Liberty's playoff berth means more exceptional fits from forward Michaela Onyenwere and guard Sabrina Ionescu. Fans also can expect Dallas Wings players Marina Mabrey and Isabelle Harrison to keep things intriguing, as both have worn a variety of sharp fits this season.

Here are some of the best styles worn by WNBA players during the first round of the playoffs:

Connecticut Sun vs. Dallas Wings

Game 3

Wings guard Arike Ogunbowale made her 2022 playoff debut Wednesday, as she has been out with an abdominal injury. She honored Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant by wearing his No. 8 jersey before the game -- appropriate, considering August 24 has been "Kobe Bryant Day" in Los Angeles since 2016. Dallas center Charli Collier donned another Nike/Cactus Plant Flea Market sweatshirt.

Forward Satou Sabally rocked a fresh romper set with heels.

Game 2

Sabally used a neutral color palette for her outfit on Sunday.

On what would have been Kobe Bryant's 44th birthday, Ionescu honored the Los Angeles Lakers legend by rocking his No. 8 jersey ahead of a winner-take-all Game 3. Forward Betnijah Laney had on a Balenciaga sweatshirt paired with a Telfar handbag while Onyenwere dazzled with leather shorts, shades and a purse from Louis Vuitton.

Las Vegas Aces vs. Phoenix Mercury

Game 2

Ahead of a win-or-go-home Game 2, Mercury star Diamond DeShields wore a baggy denim outfit with a yo-yo as her accessory.
