Being the first Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open is traditionally the place where new season's trends see the light of the day.
Marija Zivlak of Women’s Tennis Blog selects the Top 5 looks in Melbourne, showing us that outstanding tennis fashion exists anywhere on the spectrum between experimental, edgy outfits and classic, sporty silhouettes.
Blue is always the perfect choice for the Australian Open and last year’s champion Caroline Wozniacki made the best of it by sporting an ocean-inspired ombre effect in her top-performance adidas Spring Parley Tank Top and adidas Spring Parley Skirt, which include yarn made from plastic bottles.
The Dane also made sure to paint her nails bright blue in order to match her eco-friendly outfit.
Serena Williams enjoys breaking down her opponents on court -- and breaking through the boundaries of women’s tennis fashion. After becoming a mother, the American is only getting more fearless.
Following the catsuit at Roland Garros and Virgil Abloh’s tutu dress at the US Open, the tennis queen decided to remove the skirt from her lucid green Nike Spring Player Dress and turn it into a playsuit.
Cutouts on the back have been a staple in the WTA fashion in recent years, but Serena introduced a new style, a triangular one surrounded by black and white stripes.
As always, Serena is also equipped with customized Nike shoes that this time celebrate her seven Australian Open titles.
The tank is all about stripes, as the obvious black, green, blue and fuchsia stripes are accompanied by textural stripes in the mesh fabric. Moreover, the tank includes generous side slits that can be tied up or let loose. The skirt features an all-over dark denim print.
There is so much beauty in the simplicity of this youthful, sporty look. The classic engineered racerback tank features nice white, voltage violet and light reef stripes of different thickness. The coordinating pure white skirt captivates with its subtle laser perforations and rounded bottom hem.
Just like her sister Serena, Venus Williams likes to create her own on-court style, so she developed her own tennis clothing company EleVen.
In Melbourne, the American launched the Diva Dress from the Caracas range. All Venus’ collections revolve around busy patterns, but this time we’re having a tropical print included in a specific way -- as a panel at chest and waist on a white background. To round out the perfect look, Venus also wore a matching printed visor and a pink arm sleeve.
Now it’s your turn to vote for your favorite WTA outfit!
