Professional basketball player DiDi Richards is known to have good style. The 24-year-old frequently flaunts her fabulous outfits on her Instagram page, giving style inspo to her 156,000 fans and followers on the platform. In addition to game-day outfits and other personal picks, the Texas native has made appearances in brand campaigns, modeling chic clothing for various fashionable brands.

The athlete shared photos and clips from her most recent campaign to her Instagram on Sept. 25. In the carousel, she posed in a colorful diamond print pleated midi skirt and sage green bomber jacket from the brand Alpha Industries. The school girl-inspired look was fittingly paired with tall white socks and black Converse. The Baylor Lady Bears alumna wore her curly hair in an up-do for the New York City photoshoot.

is known for its “military-inspired” clothing, evident in the glamorous, yet sporty bomber jacket that Richards sported for the campaign. The third slide in the carousel featured a video of the basketball player spinning in the skirt, which featured a touch of blue plaid paneling on one side.

In addition to her modeling responsibilities, the stylish Richards recently announced that—following two seasons in the WNBA—she has joined the roster of the Sydney Flames, a professional basketball team in the Australian Women's National Basketball League. She is set to make her debut in early November, when the Flames officially begin their 2023-2024 season.
