When it comes to fashion, the WNBA is one of the better examples of athletes showing off their wardrobes. Many athletes have used their attire to support Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner, who has been detained in Russia since February after being arrested in a Moscow-area airport.

Several WNBA stars have worn gear featuring Griner's face and jersey number along with pins that read "We are BG." On Tuesday, Griner's detention was extended until at least July 2.

More fashion statements have been made across The W this week. From trench coats to hockey jerseys, athletes have once again shown out on the pregame runway.

Here are some of the best looks from around the WNBA.

Jewell Loyd and Ezi Magbegor, Seattle Storm

Ahead of the Storm's game against the Connecticut Sun, Loyd wore a graphic T-shirt featuring Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

Magbegor donned a shirt featuring Riley, Huey and Robert Jebediah Freeman from the TV show "The Boondocks."

Michaela Onyenwere and Natasha Howard, New York Liberty

Onyenwere continues to stand out with her pregame apparel. She sported a Black Lives Matter hockey jersey and shades ahead of the Thursday game against the Mystics.

Howard donned a multicolored letterman jacket featuring a silhouette of Africa on the left chest along with Air Jordan Retro 1's in a similar colorway.

Minnesota Lynx

Several Lynx players wore "We are BG" shirts to show solidarity for Griner.

Briann January and Reshanda Gray, Seattle Storm

January's fit featured a shirt with a picture of Prince on it along with a denim jacket. Gray sported a shirt with Griner's picture on it.

Skylar Diggins-Smith and Kristine Anigwe, Phoenix Mercury

Ahead of their matchup with the Sky Tuesday, Diggins-Smith supported Griner by rocking her jersey under a roomy trench coat. Anigwe's look featured a loose-fitting top accompanied by gray pants and shades. Anigwe knows a thing or two about fashion, as she owns a luxury clothing brand, KA Originals.

Natasha Cloud, Washington Mystics

The Philadelphia Flyers failed to make the NHL postseason, but that didn't stop Cloud from repping the squad. She arrived at the Mystics' contest against the Mercury Tuesday in a Flyers jersey with Air Jordan 1's in a matching colorway. Cloud is a Pennsylvania native born in Broomall and played for St. Joseph's in college.

Michaela Onyenwere, New York Liberty

Onyenwere's outfit on Sunday featured a multi-colored letterman jacket, a Telfar handbag and sunglasses.

Bria Hartley, Indiana Fever

Hartley seemed to find the perfect balance between casual and classy Sunday. She donned a blazer paired with a set of ripped jeans. Hartley also wore a necklace, with the pendant being her jersey number (14). Her handbag of choice was a saddle bag from Christian Dior. The accessory runs for $3,800 on the company's website.
