With one week through at Roland Garros, we can make an informed decision about our favorite WTA fashions at the most prestigious tournament on clay.
Marija Zivlak of Women’s Tennis Blog narrowed down the selections, and now it’s your turn to pick your favorite women’s tennis style from this fortnight in Paris.
Stella McCartney created a tennis dress masterpiece for Garbiñe Muguruza’s title defense. The sportiness of the body-hugging top of the adidas Summer Stella McCartney Dress 2 is nicely matched with a classic pleated skirt, while the beautiful silhouette is enhanced by the timeless combination of black/dark grey and white, distributed in smartly-planned color-blocks for a perfect aesthetic.
Dark side panels provide extra stretch, beautifully meeting at the back and continuing into elastic tank straps. Red adidas Stella Barricade 2017 shoes are color coordinated with the dress’ heat transfer adidas by Stella McCartney logo at center chest.
Another ace on the Paris courts this year is Kristina Mladenovic’s adidas Roland Garros Court Dress, one more statement color-block design, inspired by the bold colors that set the scene of the clay-court Grand Slam. What makes this item stand out is bi-tonal ruching along hem.
After a long period of safe outfits, Agnieszka Radwanska is again taking fashion risks and the Lotto Camoflower Dress is refreshing the courts of Roland Garros, combining camouflage, flower micro mesh fabric and tulle ruffles for a very bold, yet sophisticated look.
When it comes to tennis fashion, Grand Slams are red carpet occasions, so a bit of glamor and edge is always welcome!
Nike’s separates always cater to players who prefer a powerful, young and sporty look and this time their stars, led by Elina Svitolina, combine a simple mock-neck Nike Summer Slam Premier Tank made from circular knit fabric for enhanced breathability and the Nike Summer Power Spin Premier Skirt which unconditionally adjusts to players’ movements, while its trendy cut is enhanced by white paint splashes that reflect the scatter and grit of clay during intense matches.
Staying true to Fila's original aesthetic, Karolina Pliskova is sporting the Heritage Sleeveless Polo and the Heritage Skort, in a navy, white and online lime colorway. Even though the apparel references details from old Fila tennis, color-blocking and stripes decorate the clean cut style in such a way that the company’s timeless silhouettes have an absolutely fresh visual identity.
Alizé Cornet’s fluo energy/navy/white Lacoste Spring Player Dress brings together all the tried-and-true modern elements of women’s tennis clothing: thick contrast tank straps, color-blocking, racerback, keyhole cutout and always-welcome pleats, here uniquely enhancing a drop-waisted skirt.
Venus Williams was inspired by diamonds this time, featuring them in the print of her new EleVen Diamond Clarity Dress. As you can see, the design is very photogenic, while it’s unique for its wrap style, contrast back mesh inset and contrast elastic binding.
