Ahead of Wimbledon we showed you what leading tennis clothing companies prepared for the most prestigious tournament and now that we've seen the outfits in action, Marija Zivlak of Women's Tennis Blog selects the most stylish whites of the exciting fortnight on grass courts. All that's left is for you to decide who was the best dressed - vote for your favorite right here!
Both the dress and the separates from the adidas Stella Barricade Group have unarguably earned their place among the best fashions of this year's Wimbledon. I love the wrap element on bodice of Caroline Wozniacki's dress, while the shape of Andrea Petkovic's laser cut open mash skirt exudes liveliness and fun. The mesh is also featured at the bottom hem of the Dane's dress, for additional touch of femininity. There are tiny yellow details, but discreet enough not to challenge the strict Wimbledon clothing rules.
In the other part of the adidas camp, Ana Ivanovic, Kristina Mladenovic and Simona Halep enjoyed the sporty elegance of the London Collection. The top of the dress and the tank are decorated with horizontal tonal stripes, while the back features thin criss-cross straps, ensuring that the outfit remains visually interesting from all angles.
Just like adidas' Stella designs, Lotto representatives led by Agnieszka Radwanska sport laser perforation details, but the designs have more formal cut than the flirtatious line of Stella McCartney. The back of this Lotto Spring Kaylee Dress is plain, but the front section features square neck with four layers as details.
Venus Williams and her brand EleVen have consolidated their position in the very top of women's tennis fashion. Remember that in the Wimbledon outfit unveiling article I told you that the American would wear the very simple Fleur Du Monde Wimbledon Dress, but even though it was the official information I received from the brand, Venus changed her mind and switched to this V-neck design with straps that cross at a square back opening. I especially like the skirt adored just with several pleats at center back.
Serena Williams is still in the mood for animal prints that she introduced almost a year ago. Just like adidas with its stripes, the world number one's Nike dress shows that prints are possible even if all you have to work with is the color white. The top of the dress is very open and features skinny spaghetti straps that merge at the back.
Maria Sharapova's Wimbledon dress is absolute beauty and we expected nothing less from the stylish Russian. Side insets at waist that provide a slimming effect make the top of this Nike piece perfection, while the bottom is just as chic with contrasting triangle/rhombus print. The dress has several, well-coordinated visually-appealing elements. For that reason, there was no need for special adornments in the rear section and standard racerback perfectly rounds out the look.
Sloane Stephens made my June best-dressed list with her white Under Armour dress that could have easily been her choice for Wimbledon, but the American introduced a new look this fortnight with this young and vivacious design characterized by nicely textured chest, figure-flattering waistband and cute vertical laces at the back.
