Even though tennis apparel companies have to work within strict clothing rules when designing for Wimbledon, it doesn’t mean that the outfits all look alike and repeat year after year, quite the contrary, the all-white dress code makes the gear oriented towards detail and texture, bringing more depth to the WTA fashion.
Marija Zivlak of Women’s Tennis Blog will show us the best looks that grace the grass courts of The Championships this fortnight.
Every detail in Serena Williams’ London look speaks about her tennis royalty status.
First of all, the 23-time singles Grand Slam champion rocks a custom sweater-knit-textured Nike dress featuring dramatic side cutouts that only the most fashion-forward players can pull off.
The company’s famous logo, the Swoosh, is embellished with 34 Swarovski crystals, celebrating the age at which Serena won her most recent Wimbledon title.
Serena’s unconventional uniform is accessorized with thick gold hoop earrings, discreet necklace with a heart pendant, chunky gold rings, a luxury watch, studded manicure, and a quilted white hairband.
Tournament sensation Cori Gauff makes waves with her game, as well as with her sleek New Balance separates.
The New Balance Summer Tournament Tank features a unique split racerback with keyhole cutout, mesh seaming at the waist and metallic gold bonded taping that highlights the clean lines of the performance style.
The lightweight New Balance Summer Tournament Skirt includes all-over mesh pinholes, side slits for comfortable movement, curved droptail hem with a stripe of gold, built-in shortie for extra coverage, as well as an internal contour waistband that helps create a slimming fit.
Kiki Bertens is making a statement in a crisp white outfit from Fila’s Lawn collection.
The classy Fila Lawn Racerback Tank includes an inside self-fabric bra and mini closed hole mesh panels on the back and shoulders. Cute pleated bottom hem of the Fila Lawn Skort is enhanced by mesh gusset inserts.
The lace-inspired fabric brings the sophisticated look to the courts of Wimbledon.
Besides the elegant texture, the dress features pleats at the skirt’s center back, ribbing at the waist, armholes and neckline, as well as a locking back zipper.
Stella McCartney’s recognizable style relies on slim fits and indulges in laser perforations that circulate airflow. At Wimbledon 2019, the British fashion icon’s signature design features are enhanced by distinctive red accents and a camo-inspired pattern, as seen in Garbiñe Muguruza’s adidas Fall Stella McCartney Seamless Tank and adidas Fall Stella McCartney Skirt.
Moreover, the apparel is eco-conscious, as it employs Dope Dye Technology to reduce water waste in the production of lightweight, breathable materials made with upcycled plastic bottles.
