The Basics For Any Fan

The Orange Hoodie

Truly the hottest sports item of 2020. Make sure they are up on the trends by wearing this fashion staple, the orange hoodie. Dwyane Wade calls it the “Perfect Gift for Men

New York Liberty, Black Lives Matter replica shooting shirt

All proceeds benefit the Breonna Taylor Foundation so there is absolutely no reason not to purchase it, even for non-Liberty fans. Unfortunately, the Black Trans Lives version sported by Zahui B. below is sold out.

Their Fave’s Rookie Card

The 2020 WNBA cards are very shiny, which I think is a big plus. Find them on eBay for a whole lot of money, or not so much money (I’m sorry I am not much help on this).

Arike Ogunbowale, Metal Tee or Trading Card Tee

Speaking of trading cards, why not Arike’s trading card shirt? Remind them to be their own hero like Arike, who wore this outfit after hitting a game-winner.

WSlam, Sue Bird Cover Tee

Another icon, this one is pretty self-explanatory.

Breanna Stewart, Rings hoodie

Technically, there should now be one more ring on here, but tell zim it’s on Stewie’s right thumb.

Pursenally Yours by Eva, A’ja Autograph Tee

An effortlessly chic tee celebrating the reigning M’VP.

Tea With A & Phee, Tea Time Tee

Speaking of, any true A’ja fan will want the offical tee of A’ja Wilson’s and Napheesa Collier’s podcast, which gave us the gifts this year of A’ja calling Kendrick Perkins’ 3.4 ppg a “good GPA” and Phee discussing the proper shimmy with Steph Curry.

Satou Sabally, Masterpiece Tee

Her store also has a really cool understated unicorn tee, but if you’re going to go unicorn, go FULL UNICORN, in my opinion.

878607 738030

Brittney Griner, Rise Tank

For the fitness junkie, or anyone who just loves to see BG dunk.

Deldon designs, Rainbow basketball hoop art

The grown-up version of the nerf basketball hoop on the back of your bedroom door. The MVP is also a woodworker. It’s unreasonable.

For Their Love of All Women’s Sports

A NWSL or USWNT Jersey

Let’s be honest, a soccer kit is way more wearable than a WNBA jersey, and the USWNT has jerseys available for every player (what a concept!) I will leave recommendations on which NWSL team to support to my fellow contributors but I will say as a biased Chicagoan that the Red Stars kits are incredible:

A NWHL Jersey

I have been assured by my Canadian colleague that hockey jerseys are incredibly wearable. Have your WNBA fan check out Kacey’s guide on the NWHL to pick a team, and then get a jersey to be ready for the start of the season in January. Personally, I have chosen the Metropolitan Riveters based on the logo alone:
