Styling or Wildin’: Russell Westbrook
It’s no secret that Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook is at the forefront of progressive fashion among current NBA superstars. Sometimes, that means he’s seen sitting front row at high end fashion shows, and other times, it means he’s the butt of meme-worthy internet jokes. But, whether it’s his prescription-less Wayfarers or his signature cuffed pants and all over print button-up combo, he always gets the people going — no Will Ferrell.
Most recently, Westbrook brewed a viral storm at the Teen Choice Awards, alongside Miley Cyrus, for sporting an avant garde — and not to mention, sleeveless — button up, white drop-crotch pants and high top croc-skin sneakers. Needless to say, the outfit sparked countless discussions, with his most famous supporter, teammate Kevin Durant taking a second to say, “SWAAAAAAGGG!!!!” when sent the picture by a fan. We’re not sure he quite hit the mark on this one but we have to give him credit for being as daring of a style maven as the league has seen since Clyde Frazier.
That said, verdict’s still to be determined. Does Russ get cool points for stepping outside the norm or not? Let us know whether you think he’s styling or wilding.
