WNBA stars show off fashionable pregame fits

As the WNBA season continues, there has been much to talk about since the year began. The Las Vegas Aces look strong under new head coach Becky Hammon, defeating the Phoenix Mercury and Los Angeles Sparks in convincing fashion to lead the league standings. The reigning champion Chicago Sky find themselves toward the middle of the pack, and the New York Liberty round out the bottom of the association as of Saturday.

The early play has provided exciting hoops action, and the pregame looks by players have brought some intrigue off the court.

A number of athletes stood out for their wardrobe selections this week. Some players honored music icons with their clothing, while others used their color-coordinating skills to pull off some eccentric looks.

Here's a look at some of the best fits from around the WNBA:

Aisha Sheppard, Las Vegas Aces

Sheppard became the latest player to show support for Brittney Griner with her pregame apparel, while her teammates brought out some sleek casual looks for their road trip.
