It’s that time of year again when we all go tennis mad, dust off those racquets, complete one set of tennis and rename ourselves Serena. However we mainly just want to hit the courts to replicate those winning Wimbledon wardrobes, bandana and all. Here is how you can rev your gym garb up a gear like a tennis pro…
Cut It Out Like Garbine Muguruza
Meet our new girl crush! Volleying some serious style into court is Wimbledon and French Open Champion, Garbine Muguruza who is sporting Stella McCartney’s latest collection for Adidas. Wearing a chic white sleeveless tennis dress complete with mesh panels, a flared skirt and a racy cut out back, Garbine brought the cut out panel much loved by Saturday night party people to the court. Great for seducing the tennis coach, too or giving that gym gear a chic-over.
Bad Boy Bandanas A-la Nadal
This is not just an excuse to showcase a shot of Nadal looking smoking with his enviable tan, brining a bandana to the gym will be the final florish on the treadmill and it’s much chicer than a hair bobble.
A Vision Like Venus
Some things never go out of style and Venus is one of them. Playing in her twentieth Wimbledon, some of her opponents didn’t even exist when she first skipped into the All England Club. After some very questionable on court attire appearances, remember (remember the flesh coloured knickers and the Tina Turner inspired fringed dress, anyone?!?) Venus opted for a classic white tennis skirt complete with pleats from her own line, EleVen. Pure and simple - to quote Hear Say!
Ace Your Sneakers Like Federer
Emblazoning his shoes with his own initials wasn’t enough for Roger Federer; he had to put a London skyline on his heels too. Patriotic, classy and all about his details, much like his actual tennis game.
Volley In A Visor Like Konta
The visor is big news at Wimbledon. Much loved by American tourists for some time, it’s become the last score in chic when it comes to nailing tennis garb and our home grown girl, Joanna Konta is getting in on the action too sweat bands and all - much nicer than a grotty gym towel.
