Why we think #Kiefly is today's most stylish sports couple

Look at how these #UAAPSeason78 Athletes of the Year go
We all know about Becks and wife Victoria or even once-rumored couple Steve Nash and another Spice Girl Geli Halliwell, or LeBron and Savannah and Hank and Kendra, all world-famous sports-originating twosomes that have shaken our spectating business at least once. While we love them for their “stories” of union (and otherwise, for some), we also love them for being just… eye candy—their sense of style so apparent they’ve helped us keep glued since, well, ever.
In the Philippines, it’s not difficult to find equally savvy sports couples: JC and Bianca Gonzales Intal, Doug and Cheska Garcia Kramer, and even the controversial Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao together makes it with their well put-together branded clothes, shoes, accessories, and all.
Mind you, there’s another one coming—UAAP Season 78 Athletes of the Year Kiefer Ravena and Alyssa Valdez of the Ateneo Eagles. It must be that for their commitments to special events covering fashion, lifestyle, and entertainment that they are always dressing up, and that later they've sharpened their fashion savvy.
“We love our athletes, but we love them more when they’re being themselves off the court,” says Chalk editor-in-chief Elaine Carag. “Because of their exposure to showbiz guesting gigs, awarding ceremonies, shows sponsored by the brands they are ambassadors of, parties, and all, Kiefer and Alyssa have learned about style over time!”
“It also shows that they know how to take care of themselves.”
It looks good on them, though, as if they don’t already look good. Here, we decode more of the couple’s style know-how, which they’ve taken to Instagram for all of us to ogle.
Kiefer and Alyssa slip to beach wear oozing with sexiness even if they’re not showing too much skin, Carag says. “And you can see that they’re still sporty even when on the shore.” Those abs, doe, we say.
The couple’s holiday wear is a mix of preppy and sparkly. Carag adds, “They’re both so chic! The dress is perfect for Alyssa as it highlights her long legs.” #Legsfordays, indeed!
“I love how they’re matchy-matchy but not quite,” says Carag of #KieFLy’s formal ensemble. “I like how the asymmetrical cut of the dress adds to Alyssa's character, and that Kiefer still looks young even in a suit thanks to his open, no-tie collar.”
Here’s a rig-out couples can follow when going hiking, camping, or just heading for a road-trip. Carag calls this “so stylish yet comfortable!"
“I’ve noticed that Kiefer and Alyssa like matching clothes!” Chalk’s editor-in-chief recites. For this casual getup, for example, the two sports stars complement each other’s clothes from the same blue palette down to their Onitsuka’s! #Couplegoals, anyone?”
