These Celebs Show Us What to Wear to a Basketball Game
Ever panicked over what to wear to a basketball game? Taking a tip from courtside celebrity appearances is actually easier than you think. While the sidelines at the NBA have long been a place for cool streetwear debuts, these past few seasons stars have definitely upped the ante, with the floor appearing more and more like the front row at Fashion Week. This has become a spot for couples to launch their new relationships, à la Emily Ratajkowski and Pete Davidson; the latest fashion trends (Donald Glover was one of the first to rock MSCHF’s polarizing BWD shoe while enjoying a game); and standout outerwear – as impractical as Beyoncé’s crystal-studded patent jacket or Tinashe’s Annakiki cow-print coat may be.
Best friend duo Justine Skye and Hailey Bieber memorably constructed cute matching basketball game outfits, with Bieber in a spring/summer 2023 Coperni getup that consisted of a sleeveless pinstripe vest and low-slung heavyweight cargo pants. She and Skye both covered up with tough leather jackets and opted for their own taste in hoop earrings. From Adele’s glamorous leather Louis Vuitton look at the Los Angeles Lakers’ season opener to Chloë skintight patterned Osman jumpsuit at an Atlanta Hawks game, basketball game outfits have certainly been elevated to a new level.
Ahead, see some of our favorite courtside ensembles, and get inspiration for what you should wear to a basketball game.
