Many of Simone Biles’ recent looks have added subtle nods to her fiancé, football player Jonathan Owens. On Sunday, for example, the gymnast posted a mirror selfie on Instagram, wearing a pale-blue tank top and cutoff jean shorts with an oversized white button-down dangling from her arms. On top of the tank, the number 36 is clearly visible, and that number is no coincidence — it’s Owens’ jersey number for his NFL team, the Houston Texans. To complete the casual, off-duty look, the Olympian went with white low-top sneakers.
This tonal, blue-on-blue moment channels the ever-popular monochromatic trend seen on runways from Chloé to Valentino, while also being a favorite among the street style set. While wearing the same color from head to toe can sometimes come off as over the top, when done with the right variety of colors, this style trick can easily work for everyday outings.
Biles has her date-night wardrobe down to a science. She’s a frequent source of fashion inspo for going out—from dress-up versions of these same denim shorts to slinky outfits for a night on the town. But she also wears a lot of clothes that support Owens. With this latest look, she proved that her summer uniform of a tank top and denim shorts can be personalized to show support for her husband.
As her wedding approaches, Biles will likely continue to send subtle style messages that pay tribute to her love. In the meantime, be sure to read about her favorite bridal designers and wedding day colors.
