15 Athletes Who Could Give You Fashion Advice

There is no question Dwyane Wade knows exactly what he is talking about when it comes to fashion. For that reason, the guy would be someone you would definitely want to take fashion advice from if he was willing to give it. Of course, if the conversation never happens, you can always watch his press conferences to see the kind of statement he likes to make.

Years ago, no one would think to put fashion and sports in the same sentence. However, Nike and Adidas changed all of that when they started to use athletes to model their clothes and accessories. Now, athletes are the spokespersons for numerous fashion houses, and I’m not just talking about female athletes either. It is certainly crazy to think of the same men we cheer for on the gridiron, court or field are also tearing it up on the runway.

In most cases, these athletes are actually very interested in fashion. So much so in fact that they would even go as far as to call it one of their primary hobbies away from their job. I know, it’s a crazy world we live in. What is even more nuts is that the athletes actually know what they’re talking about. Sure, some of their fashion statements are a little too bold, but most of them are spot on.

Wade might be one of the more fashionable athletes out there, but he is most definitely not the only one. Whether it is a male or female athlete, there are several that could teach you how to dress the right way. Make sure to check out the slideshow of the 15 athletes that could give you advice in fashion.

Like a lot of NBA players, Russell Westbrook tries to make fashion statements in his postgame press conferences. Unlike a lot of those same players, he usually pulls it off. There’s no question the man would be able to tell you anything you want to do about what fashion suits you.

Not only does Venus Williams dress to impress, but she also could school you in fashion. The tennis superstar has an associate’s degree in fashion design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.

You can’t have one without the other. Like her sister, Serena Williams has an eye for fashion. She is responsible for some incredibly bold fashion choices that usually pay off in a big way. Whether it’s her intensely vibrant tennis uniforms on the court or her numerous fashion statements off it, Serena is determined to make headlines one way or the other.

12. Derek Jeter

It’s not easy for male athletes to impress in the fashion world, probably because many fans only see them as sports stars. However, Derek Jeter is one of the rare exceptions in which he dominates both fronts. Whether it’s Yankee pinstripes, a designer suit or jeans and a t-shirt, Jeter knows just the right amount of style to pull off any look.

One of Rajon Rondo’s hobbies is men’s fashion. What started out as an interest has turned into an obsession that takes up a majority of his free time. It will be interesting to see if he will use his eye for fashion in his second career after basketball.

Danica Patrick may look stunning in a black dress, but that’s not the main reason why she’s on this list. Patrick is the spokeswoman for numerous fashion companies, which means she knows one or two things about the fashion world.

The gorgeous Alex Morgan is best known for her talent on a soccer field. However, she is actually very interested in fashion and everything that goes along with it. She rocks multiple different styles, which is something not many can do. She also attends fashion week in order to keep up on all of the trends.

8. Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant always looks fresh in his postgame press conferences. The man knows his fashion, and he has pulled off every look we’ve ever witnessed. I can’t really see Bryant kicking it in the fashion world once he retires from basketball, but there’s no question many companies would love to have him on board.

7. Maria Sharapova

Tennis star Maria Sharapova has been incredibly popular in the world of fashion for the past 10 years. There are so many fashion companies that call her a spokesperson that it’s actually kind of ridiculous. In fact, I can’t imagine anyone else on this list would be more knowledgeable about fashion than her.

6. Dwyane Wade

Wade is the reason why this list was formed in the first place. The man constantly makes fashion statements with his red carpet attire and pre-and-postgame looks. Wade can pretty much pull off any suit and he knows it too, which is why he can be seen sporting all different looks.

5. Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is the athlete on this list who represents the European fashion world, which is certainly much different than that of Americans. Because it’s European fashion, it’s much bolder than fans in the U.S. are typical of seeing. Obviously, it works for him as he kills it everywhere he goes.

4. Tom Brady

There’s Tom Brady the Super Bowl champion quarterback and then there’s Tom Brady the model. The signal caller has his fashion sense called out every now and again, but the man can definitely look good if he wants to. There’s no question his incredibly hot wife, Gisele Bundchen, has some say in the way he dresses. Regardless, he’s been around long enough where he could definitely give you a few pointers.

Larry Fitzgerald might just be the sharpest dressed football player in the league, and that includes Brady. He’s always rocking suits like a boss and never disappoints with his fashion sense.

When Lindsey Vonn isn’t hitting the slopes, she’s showing us how it’s done on the red carpet. Vonn sports high-end designer dresses in any style. On top that, she’s gorgeous, which means she can pretty much pull off any look.

1. David Beckham

By far one of the most fashionable athletes in the world is David Beckham. He’s an underwear model who also represents several other fashion houses. That fact that his wife, Victoria Beckham, is very much into fashion helps, but I’m confident David could handle fashion even without her by his side. The man looks great in everything from dapper suits to simple jeans and a t-shirt.
