Dwyane Wade will return to where it all started, Miami Heat, for the final season of his career. In an emotional video just posted on his YouTube channel, Wade asks his fans to “join me for one last dance,” and promises to give “everything else I have left.”  

On court, Wade is a decorated basketball superstar with three championships under his belt, among others. Off court, the 36-year-old is also known for being one of the league's most courageous dressers. 

He showed up at Paris Fashion Week for the spring 2018 collections with a Thom Browne dog-shaped man bag (got that?) and in a Louis Vuitton camp-collar shirt and a Balmain white sport coat. Pretty cool—dog-man-bag included—if you ask us. 

Speaking of Thom Browne: Those coordinated Browne suits you remember on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were actually an idea brewed up by the designer and Wade. But when Wade was traded to the Miami Heat, the idea remained in the Cavs.   

Nevertheless, Wade's standout style remains evident. He's never one to shy away from color and print or try something directional that may scare the beejubus in an ordinary man. 

Best of all, what we like is that the athlete looks like he's having fun with clothes. Just take a look at all the photos with Wade and his wife, actress Gabriel Union, both stylishly dressed everywhere they go.

Next season may be his last with the NBA, but we're sure we'll see more of Wade in the court of style. Here are some of his winning moments.   

What to wear when chilling with a crate of grapes? A camp-collar shirt emblazoned with emoji faces.  


Never afraid of daring, the athlete shows you how to coordinate without looking like a fool. (Don't try this at home.) 

Now in pink, which is a man's color. (Those shoes!) 

And in blues, but with the swerve of denim.

Taking coordination to another level in a matching set.  

If you haven't gotten the memo yet, tucking in your T-shirt is cool again. 

Here's proof that brawny guys can find a great suit.  

And this is how to dress down a suit: Break it up. Pair with Breton stripes, wear joggers, put on white sneakers. (Scroll right.)

And here is how to do stylish athletic gear—with a red-white-blue band.  


Not much to say about this off-duty look except to point out how it is perfect. 

We leave you with the courage of sparkly pants in motion.
