Hot! or Hmm…: The Brooklyn Nets Cheerleaders ‘Street Fashion’ Inspired Uniforms
By Claire

Clutch Magazine recently published the following picture of the projected uniforms for the Brooklyn Nets ‘Brooklynette’ Cheerleaders.

Apparently inspired by ‘Street Fashion’ the ensembles feature the ample cleavage and high hems characteristic of cheerleader costumes, but offer a ‘hard’ edge with jailhouse stripes, zippers, and stretchy leatherette fabric. Other outfits include a neoprene scuba blazer with sequin leggings, and a cropped jacket worn with sequin painted pants.

45-year-old designer David Dalrymple, who has worked with stylist Patricia Field for years and who famously designed Britney Spears’s 2000 VMA nude diamond covered bodysuit, told the New York Post, “The uniforms are feminine and strong…This isn’t palm trees and sunshine. It’s New York City, and it’s Brooklyn. It’s a different sensibility. We go hard…For these costumes, we needed things that these women can dance and move in, but we wanted to bring in street elements. We needed to find that bridge of street fashion that can actually work on the court.

Surely cheerleaders are known for their sexy ‘fits, but some of these get ups are giving me more street walker than street fashion.
What do you think?

  4. EntertainmentsFuture says:

    It bothers me when ever they do something for Bk it always gotta look “hood/hard”. In this case it looks trashy!

  5. Kay'Gee says:

    Meh.

  6. jbrizzy says:

    I mean cheerleaders are already perceived as sluts, so these lady’s just wanted to go on ahead embrace it huh?

  7. jasmine says:

    doesnt it remind you of 2002 to 2004 when all the video girls would wear jersey inspired clothes. gross

  8. tasha says:

    They need to go back to the drawing board. They look trashy and cheap.

  12. tt says:

    looks as though no thought went into the designs. it screams cheap & trashy. and as EF stated, it does seem that things associated w/bk have to be hard & hood.

  13. Jihan says:

    These are less than cute unfortch :( #dead at the Beetlejuice comment!

  14. Miss Meika says:

    A hott mess! I’m ashamed for Brooklyn.

  19. CaribbeanQueen says:

    They look like cheap Halloween costumes from Party City or something.

  20. Jenna says:

    They scream “designed by Tina Knowles”

  21. Lauren says:

    ooo nooooo that aint right! they look like they’re two skips and a jump from a good yeast infection. If they’re going for a street chic look, they should channel more Aaliyah and less “how many licks does it take till you get to the center of the clinic”

  22. Horrible and oh so funny!

  23. Sinnamon says:

    They must be produced by HOD

  24. marguerite says:

    i know Jay Z didn’t approve these outfits. He needs to fire whoever is in charge. Or hell, fire Jay Z for letting this get to the masses.

  25. makeeasweet says:

    i actually like the uniform on the left in the first picture.all they have to do is get rid of the boots and put on sneakers .you cant have short skirt,with knee boots and cleavage all together.they really arent that different from the cheerleaders outfits you see today,just look at cowboys cheerleader outfits.

  26. bella says:

    this is so UGLY and trashy. None of these looks are even up to date. straight out of 2001 with those hideous BOOTS.

  27. Anonymous says:

    I like the outfits…I just hate that they look cheap. Not that they have to be in high-end couture, but COME ON! -these look almost like Party City costumes…

  28. TheAntifash says:

    Something tells me mama knowles was involved…

  29. Cee says:

    As a native Brooklynite, this is highly offensive. This is not what we’re about

  30. Jazz says:

    That is a HOT AZZ MESS.com!

  31. Not cute at all. Brooklyn is bursting with talent and emerging designers that I am sure would’ve represented the borough well and with pride. They are dishing out tons of money in marketing they should have made sure that their product looks just as good.

  32. Mamareese says:

    Um not a fan….but let’s not act like they are go shopping or running errands dressed like this. This is their job and all…so if you got the body for it….

  33. WhtUpFerg says:

    TACKY!!!! hell no!

  34. Tiffany says:

    Damn, just cuz Jay-Z is somewhere in there with his MINORITY ownership doesn’t mean these chicks gotta look like they’re straight off the BLOCK.

    This crap is tacky and in VERY poor taste!! Instead of pom-poms are they going to be holding paper bags with 40oz’s in them?

  35. Hello says:

    Hot….mess! I can’t

  36. Nadege says:

    Um..David? you go hard and this is what you come up with? Since when street fashion have a hooker look to it? Geez, I know so many fashionistas that are from Brooklyn and would not be caught wearing this garbage!

  37. Lol this is so ratchet.

  38. Anonymous says:

    Leave the club wear or stripper clothes were the belong.

  39. queen bee says:

    NO FREAKING WHY IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY…

  40. Chenoa says:

    In the name of thy Lord, why ? Where did they get these looks from a Spirit Halloween catalog ?

  41. Kathi says:

    No way on the Catsuit – the stripes are hard on the eyes. The others, Yes! If you have the body, or think you don’t – Go for what you feel is you.

  42. B.rocka says:

    Seriously, they are going to wear this ish during half time?? I bet this ish was designed for MEN to look at….I feel STANK just looking at it.

    …and what ^^^they said…cheap Halloween costumes from Party City; looking like mama Knowles designs House of Horrid..oops De-whatever

  43. Lola A. says:

    They look like hookers did house of deredont do this?

  44. MsTicaD says:

    This.Can. Not. Be. For Real. For Real. Terrible. Period.

  45. PinkShimmer says:

    Yes, I wholeheartedly agree with others, this soooo gives me House of Dereon tease, and I mean that in the utmost disrespectful way. #fail

  46. reesha says:

    All they need is a pair of the Timberland knee boots and a snap back, to complete this Hoodrat ensemble LOL.

  47. peachie says:

    I hate this. Just because it’s BK, doesn’t mean that we “have” to go “hard.” This sh## is ridiculous.

  48. That ish looks like a hot damn mess on fiyah. What they hell them higher ups are thinking?? This is Brooklyn we’re talking about.
