Dwyane Wade's Fashion Sense Isn't Something You Can Duplicate

Dwyane Wade is a fashion icon in not only the NBA, but the entire sports world. His sense of fashion and style is unrivaled by his peers, although they try hard to match him and if we didn’t know any better, we’d think it flatters him a bit.

LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are just a few NBA superstars who have mimicked Wade’s fashion in some way, yet none of them are quite to his level yet. Wade is setting trends and bucking them at the same time, which is something reserved for fashion legends, and it’s not very often than an athlete falls under that category.

Then the average Joe tries to mimic Wade as well…and it’s just ugly. Folks, Wade can pull that stuff off; you can’t. But don’t feel bad! We can’t either! However, we do wish that we could, even if we won’t admit it to our macho, fashion-illiterate friends.

So to console ourselves (or make us even more depressed), we’ve decided to examine exactly why we can’t dress like D-Wade. Allow us to elaborate.

He Looks Better Than You

Ask your wife or girlfriend and they’ll tell you Wade is a good-looking guy. Add in the fact he’s got three rings and more money than you or I could count in a lifetime and he owns the trump card. That’s why whatever he wears works.

You Could Never Pull That Off

Ok, let’s say you’re as good-looking as D-Wade. You’re not, but let’s just say you are for the sake of argument. Could you wear the stuff he wears and look good? No. Sorry, but you just couldn’t. It takes more than good lucks to pull off the stuff Wade wears. Dude has serious swag.

You Aren’t Creative Enough to Put That Together

Seriously, how does he come up with this stuff? Even if you could pull off what he wears, you could never come up with all the different ensembles that he does. It takes an incredible level of creativity.

You Can’t Afford All Those Outfits

Even if you were good-looking and creative enough to wear and pull off what Wade does, you don’t make $15 million per year in salary and then probably double that from endorsements. You can bet his ensembles aren’t cheap.

You Can’t Match Different Styles Together

How can one man be hipster, gangster, preppy, classy and straight up clean all at the same time? Only Wade seems to be able to pull it off. Again, you and I aren’t nearly creative enough to come up with half the awesome stuff he wears. Sad day.
