When Fashion and Sports Collide WNBA Player Takes Gameday Wardrobes To New Heights
If you’ve watched the NBA playoffs lately, other than Stephen Curry’s amazing three-point range, the chatter in the social atmosphere is all about what the players are wearing to the game. Players such as Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, are taking fashion and style to a new level with their unique and edgy off-court couture. But the men aren’t the only ones wowing fans with their gameday wardrobes. Take WNBA’s power forward Crystal Langhorne. The Seattle Storm’s starter is not only a threat on the court, but her chic and sassy style has been noticed by many for quite some time. A lefty, who sports career averages of 12 points, 7 rebounds, there’s another side of Crystal that you may not know about. The 6’2” forward sense of style is changing the look of the WNBA one pre-game get-up at a time. Last season, Crystal seemed to start a trend by posting snapshots of her gameday fits on social media. A great idea to share her love for fashion and to give fans a glimpse into her stylish ways. Like many others, I wanted to learn more about Crystal’s passion for fashion and her well-thought-out wardrobe which she maintains throughout the season, even on the road! Here’s what she had to say. Crystal has created her own fashion blog (Crystal’s Closet) where we will get a chance to see what she’s been wearing during the season. A special treat, we will even get to know where she purchased her items from! Make sure you check out her first blog post here.
What made you decide to start a blog about your fashion?
I decided to start a blog because I wanted to have a fashion source for athletes, especially the taller ones. I’ve had people reach out to me about where I’ve gotten some of my clothing because finding clothing for tall women can be difficult. This blog will help women find better clothing options for themselves. People are interested in seeing basketball players off the court. People just don’t want to see basketball players playing basketball. People love seeing NBA players game day outfits and I want to do the same thing for the ladies.
