NBA Draft fashion: Shiny suits, bright colors among the trends

Jul 29, 2021, 6:07 PM | Updated: Jul 30, 2021, 11:42 am

Every year, NBA draftees know how to bring it on the red carpet.

It was much of the same in 2021, with the future of the league showing off their fashion sense.

Top prospect Cade Cunningham was looking stealth in all-black, while other top prospect Jalen Green made a statement in a flashy gray suit.

Jalen Suggs took a page out of Green’s book, also rocking a shiny gray suit on draft night.

A couple of prospects took the night to make statements with unusual color combinations.

USC’s Evan Mobley broke out an all-turquois piece, while Texas’s Kai Jones went with crisp, light-pink suit.

G League prospect Jonathan Kuminga followed their lead in bright suits, wearing an all-orange piece.

Another trend in draft night fashion, red velvet.

Two exciting guards in the draft, Cam Thomas and Davion Mitchell, nearly wore the same jacket.
