Win big with styles inspired by this summer’s other massive sporting event…. the Wimbledon tennis tournament!
With the craziness of the World Cup, it’s easy to forget about Wimbledon. You can show your team spirit for the World Cup in a customized jersey, but tennis style has so many options for sporty chic outfits! Tennis skirts and polos have a timeless appeal. From high school mall shoppers to Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring 2014 runway, athletic wear truly never goes out of style. We’re feeling inspired by the bright whites and sporty cuts of traditional tennis clothes. It’s athletic wear at its most refined.
The tennis dress is a modern classic. Pleated skirts and halter necklines are staples on the court, and translate easily to your every day wardrobe.The Halter Dress is ideal for attending a game. The halter neck and bright white are a nod to tennis whites, but crisp poplin and lace edgings won’t make you feel like you need to start serving. Go a little sportier with the Zipper Neck Dress from the Good Sport collection. This piece is made in high tech jersey, just like the scuba knit skirts and dresses that are so popular in ready-to-wear. The Elastic Mini Dress is actually ready for the tennis court. Make it in light and breezy mesh or any fabric you can move in.
You can also pull ideas from athletes’ off duty style. A jersey romper is just the thing to throw on after a tough workout or a long day at the beach. The Strapless Romper is so summery. Make it in a bright stripe for a retro look that goes perfectly with chunky platforms. For the gym or for lazy days at home, pair the easy knit Shorts with the 3/4 Sleeve Jersey Tee. These simple patterns are comfy and quick to sew however you wear them. The Jersey Track Pants have a little more detail with a leg lengthening racing stripe down each leg. Run errands in these bright trousers and a worn in V neck tee.
