Te’a Cooper’s Courtside Style Has Us Totally in Awe

The professional basketball player makes a statement on and off the court.

Te’a Cooper.

Te’a Cooper may not be taking to the basketball court in uniform quite as often as she used to, but that doesn’t mean she’s stopped showing up courtside in her best style. The professional athlete, who last played for the Los Angeles Sparks in 2022, is a known fashion icon (known, at least, to us). And, though she hasn’t been making her own prime-time entrances, she has been showing up for others, and serving her characteristically good ’fits.

Her latest statement-making style came on the sidelines of her brother Sharife Cooper’s Cleveland Charge—an NBA G League team—game. She showed up for a courtside seat in a simple pair of black leggings, which she wore over her high heels, a black cropped Chanel puffer, a matching Chanel beanie and oversized Chanel sunglasses. She accessorized with similarly Chanel-branded bracelets.

“Te’a >>>>> ‼️💋☕️ MUAH,” she captioned a series of photos she posted, which showed off all angles of her sleek, monochromatic look.

“purrrr,” fellow professional basketball player DiDi Richards wrote in the comments.

“Yesss🔥🔥🔥🔥,” another follower complimented the iconic look.

In addition to snaps of her outfit, Cooper also included a shot of her brother on the court, alongside a snapshot of his stats, which earned him “top performer” status for the game. We love her dedication to show up for her brother in his chosen sport, and we appreciate her willingness to serve her best style while she’s at it.
