Ace of Style: Top 10 Looks from Naomi Osaka

Although Naomi Oaska has repeatedly described herself as not liking to be the center of attention, her style and talent command it. With this mentality, it seems shocking by her ever growing publicity and following, yet she still often takes fashion risks worth the reward. Remaining grounded to her craft and true to her unrivaled style, Osaka tends to skip the stylists, buying and styling pieces herself as well as doing her own hair and makeup. Drawn to pieces of high visual interest, Osaka experiments with different patterns, silhouettes, textures, and colors within her looks. As a 22 year old woman having already won the highest achievement as a professional tennis player, you may wonder what’s next for her, but there is no telling what isn’t next for Osaka. From winning the US Open, to designing a NYFW collection with Adeam, it is impossible not to give Naomi Oaska all the attention she deserves. 

1. Cushnie

Osaka stunned in Cushnie after winning her second consecutive Grand Slam Title at the Australian Open in 2019. The black, woman owned designer brand, specializing in striking silhouettes and colors, was the perfect complement to Oaska’s newly won trophy as she strolled down Brighton Beach. Featuring a bold zipper down the front, the dress debuted her youthful, edgy personality. Paired with gold hoops and a bold lip, her look perfectly represents her vibrant, eye catching career and sense of style.  

 

2. Adeam 

Though tennis has always been her passion, Osaka describes the past time designing and imagining clothing with her sister throughout her childhood. Coming full circle, Naomi and her sister collaborated with Japanese owned and inspired  fashion brand Adeam, designing their Fall/ Winter 2020 collection. Debuting during New York Fashion Week, the collection focused on billowy shoulders, unexpected textures, and high low hem lines. The fierce, determined mind of Naomi Oaska paired with the reinventive, creative mind of Hanako Maeda, proved that both women, especially together, are an unstoppable force. 

3. Molly Goddard & Comme des Garcons X Converse

When it comes to fashion risks, Naomi Oaska fearlessly experiments with contrast in many different aspects of her looks. She regularly styles bright or pastel hues with muted tones of the same color to create a monochromatic look with a distinctive flare. In a Molly Goddard pastel tulle dress, Osaka contrasted the look with forest green socks. By pairing Comme Des Garcon X Converse with a voluminous, playful gown, Osaka also creates contrast between casual and classy. 

 

4. Chanel Fanny Pack 

When it comes to her everyday style, Naomi Oaska reaches for no fuss, monochromatic athleisure paired with eye-catching accessories. Continuing to value texture in even the simplest outfits, Osaka styles a velour sweatshirt, wrapped around her waist, with a denim Chanel fanny pack and the perfect pair of white high top sneakers. When she is away from events and tournaments, Osaka tends to highlight details within her simplistic looks to still create interest and convey her sense of style.

5. Off-White, Nike X Sacai

Though she is often seen in sportswear and athleisure, it is rare to see Naomi Oaska implementing streetwear trends into her looks. With the help of new icey, grey hair, paired with Off-White and Nike collaboration pieces, Oaska channels her alter ego while still maintaining her sense of style by experimenting with color and texture. Layering shirts of different textures as well as bags, she serves streetwear even at the beach. 

6. Adeam

Always finding ones that suit her best, Naomi Oaska is no stranger to a strong silhouette. On The Ellen Show, Osaka glowed in a satin Adeam wrap suit, tailored with a striking shoulder, creating a collected, yet casual look. Being 22, Osaka gravitates towards pieces of interest and turns them into a classic by pairing them with a standard white sneaker and minimal jewelry. 

7. Chanel Fanny Pack, Black Air Force 1s

Although Naomi Oaska is often seen in colorful looks, a denim jumpsuit is the perfect monochromatic moment for the grand slam champion. Continuing this color scheme, she styles the distressed denim with a denim Chanel fanny pack, and a pair of black Nike Air Forces. Finding interest in not only color, but texture often elevates Osaka’s looks at home or at any event. 

8. Nike Court x Sacai

To build onto mounting anticipation of the 2019 U.S. Open, Naomi Oaska, then ranked the No. 1 player in the world, revealed her exclusive look for the tournament. Aptly called the “Queens of the Future” collection for their pop up, Naomi Oaska was featured as the face of the NikeCourt x Sacai collaboration. As the first athlete to wear NikeCourt x Sacai, Naomi defended her title as well as her sense of fashion against Anna Blinkova. 

 

9. Comme des Garcon

After defeating Serena Williams in the 2018 U.S. Open Women’s Final, 20 year old Naomi Oaska showed she could go head to head with Williams when it comes to style as well. In a bright white Comme des Garcons midi dress detailed with voluminous shoulders, she shined like the newly won trophy beside her. Styling the look with black pumps and simplistic stud earrings, Osaka strove for elegance while still maintaining her sense of style with a striking silhouette.

10. Banjanan

Naomi Oaska channels the perfect summer day in this vibrant, pastel Bajanan dress. Paired with a simple straw hat, Osaka wears a front tie silhouette and maintains her draw to colorful pieces. In this flamingo print, the tennis champion cannot go unnoticed on or off the court.
