Move over influencers and bloggers, New York Fashion Week is making room for a more unlikely crowd in the front rows this season. While there has always been an athlete or two sprinkled throughout the sea of fashion’s finest during the week of shows, the SS ’18 presentations saw an increase in professional athlete attendees.

From basketball stars to Formula 1 drivers, your favorite athletes brought their A-game this fashion week. Considering the new “in-look” is all about street wear, and street wear trends are currently all about looking sporty-cool, these athletes fit right in.

Who says you can’t have style and skill? Here are the best street wear looks from athletes this fashion week season.
