Last night at 2016 NBA Draft we watched the dreams of young men come true. Not only were we watching that, everyone was DEF paying attention to their threads. Of course the NBA’s newest players want to make a statement on the court and last night they made fashion statements as well.
We’re going to show you the top trends from last night, as well as a throwback of how the trend was done during past NBA Drafts.
2015- Round 1/ 2nd Pick: D’Angelo Russell
1989- Round 1/ 26th Pick: Vlade Divac
2. Accessories- Bowties and tings!
Adding an accessory can either make or break your look. With the wrong selction, your ensemble can go from fab to drab. Last night, some players added personal touches to their looks making them standout from the crowd.
2016- Round 1/ 5th Pick: Kris Dunn (Custom Jacket and Gucci Glitter Web Sneakers with studs)
1984- Round 1/ 1st Pick: Hakeem Olajuwon
2007- Round 1/ 9th Pick: Joakim Noah
It doesn't have to be your wedding day to wear all-white. These athletes below rocked the trend to a 't' keeping their look 'so fresh, so clean.' Even though, LeBron's suit is 10 times his actual size, for the time it was in style. GIVE HIM A BREAK!

5. Colour My World
Who doesn't like colour? Of course we're not saying to go out wearing every colour in the rainbow, but it's always nice to throw a splash of colour here and there. Over the past few years, NBA Draft Day fashion has really evolved, but one thing is clear, colour is here to stay.
NBA Draft Class 2016
It seemed the players were it pretty safe when it came to choice of colour for their suits. Many opted for navy blues, grays, and a wine colour. There were about seven guys who rocked a deep red, plum coloured suit for the night. Even though the colours weren't in your face, the subtle colour hues really looked amazing on the guys.
NBA Draft Class 2015
Compared to the Draft Class of 2016, it was a totally different story for the now NBA sophomores. In 2015, there were bright reds and blue hues all over Draft the stage, plus Rondae Hollis-Jefferson wore black and red plaid pants! Talk about colour.
Here’s a closer look at all the looks from last night! Congrats guys!
