Joe Burrow and His Fashion

A football player isn’t typically a person you would consider to be a fashion icon. You might think of a model walking down the runway dressed in an abstract outfit or a musical artist performing on a stage in a flashy outfit. However, Joe Burrow, a Cincinnati Bengals football player, has been expressing himself with stylish outfits since being drafted into the NFL.


Joe Burrow is one of the most well-known athletes in the country right now. Burrow won the Heisman trophy in 2019 for his successful season as quarterback for Louisiana State University and led the Bengals to the Super Bowl in 2021. Burrow is starting his second season as quarterback with the Cincinnati Bengals. This football star isn’t just focused on his own achievements; Burrow gives back to his hometown food pantry in Athens, Ohio. Almost all of Cincinnati would agree that Burrow is a well-respected athlete on and off the field.


Not only is Burrow a pro-athlete and an active member of his community, he also is a fashion icon. He has worn some pretty memorable outfits. Last year, Burrow appeared at the Super Bowl in a black and white striped suit with Nike shoes. NFL fans were all buzzing about this distinctive choice of clothes. He was sending a message that he meant business for the Super Bowl.


Professional clothes aren’t the only part of Burrow’s unique style. Pink glasses were also a hot accessory for Burrow. After he led the Bengals to win their first playoff game in 31 years, Burrow appeared at a press conference with pink sunglasses. Pictures of Burrow with the glasses went viral on Twitter and everyone loved it. When asked about the significance of glasses during the press conference, Burrow replied, “I just think they’re pretty cool.”



Burrow has also used his clothing to express his love for one of his favorite characters, Spongebob Squarepants. Before a big matchup against the Tennessee Titans in the AFC divisional round, Burrow was wearing a custom sport coat with a pocket square featuring Spongebob Squarepants.


Fans are always anxious to see what outfits Burrow is wearing, but many fans are curious as to how he comes up with these ideas. Ja’Marr Chase, a star wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, is always collaborating with Joe Burrow on his outfits. “Joe literally won’t buy his own clothes,” Chase said. “He always asks me to shop for him and drop it off at the house. He’s not really into fashion like that, he cool with his lil' khakis and skinny jeans.” Chase and Burrow played together at LSU for two seasons, then Burrow was drafted to the Bengals in 2019. In 2020, Chase was drafted to the Bengals and the two were reunited. This is not surprising because Chase has always been a fashionable guy. Burrow still picks out some of his outfits, but Chase helps him out when it comes to trendy or more fashionable outfits.


Regardless of who puts together the outfits for the Bengals quarterback, Burrow inspires others to express themselves with their clothing. Fans are excited about the Bengals football season but arguably more excited for what Joe Burrow’s unique outfits will be.
