Whether they’re on or off the court, these athletes know how to do it best.
These players got game, but when they’re off the court, that’s when we get to see more of who they are. From reppin’ red to hitting the red carpet real quick, they score big by swapping their uniforms for hoodies or heels. Cleaning up nicely, we rounded up some of the most stylish Filipino athletes that have been on our radar lately. Read on below to choose your player.
1. MARGIELYN DIDAL
If anyone’s got the flyest style on the list, it’s definitely Filipino olympian Margielyn Didal. Influenced by skate culture and her Cebuana roots, Margielyn already has fashion brands in her bag at this point: a shoe collaboration with New Balance and the face of H&M’s summer campaign.
2. KRISTINA KNOTT
Another olympian on the list, the sprinter has mastered the art of cozy style at this point. Filipino American athlete Kristina Knott’s usually in denim cut-offs, an oversized button-down or flannels and a good ‘ol pair of sneakers.
3. THIRDY RAVENA
Thirdy Ravena isn’t only known for shooting hoops, but also for his bold choices when it comes to fashion. Heck, he even had a pink buzzcut like Dennis Rodman in the past. Thirdy pretty much has everything from Rick Owens sneakers, custom iced-out chains with his logo, and Alyx Studio accessories.
4. SHAUN ILDEFONSO
Fresh off the PBA draft, NU’s Shaun Ildefonso just keeps on bringing on the heat. Just peep all the vintage tees he wears as seen on his Instagram account, along with the athlete’s rotation of sneakers and colorful caps.
5. PAULINE GASTON
Pauline Gaston is built like an Amazonian, so you can expect a lot of volleyball snaps AND major bikini pics from her. We love how she can switch her uniform to mini skirts and a bit of Y2K style in a heartbeat.
6. KIANNA DY
Kianna Dy, or “KKD” as her volleyball fans call her, is versatile on the court as she is when it comes to her style. She can go from summer to street just like that, and often seen in either statement pants or colorful bikinis.
7. JUAN AND JAVI GOMEZ DE LIANO
Whether it’s preppy or street, you can always count on Filipino Spanish basketball brothers Juan and Javi Gomez de Liano for the freshest ‘fits. Lacoste shirts, Balmain polos, puffer jackets, and an insane sneaker collection, you name it. Oh, to belong to a family that’s got style and game.
8. ZAVIER LUCERO
For an athlete like Zavier Lucero who knows nothing but winning, his style is always smooth and safe. The 6’7 Filipino American baller has an enviable tall frame that you can easily dress in. Cue in the utility vests, varsity jackets, and printed shirts.
9. CJ CANSINO
While we usually see athletes in street fashion, UP’s CJ Cansino proves that they can nail resortswear, too. This whole summer outfit screams Jacquemus and we’re here for it.
10. BENJAMIN PHILIPS III
Not only is DLSU’S Benjamin Philips III a great team player, he’s also an author, a future business doctor and a man of taste. Just check out the Filipino American player’s posts where he often shares his style that’s worthy to be featured on GQ. Beret? Check. Suit and tie? Check. Wingtips? Check.
