7 ways to dress like you’re a tennis champion
From the court to your closet.
There's an easy elegance to tenniswear that simplifies the act of getting dressed. The outfits are designed for high performance, with silhouettes that don't constrain or bog you down. It's all about clothing that moves with you, and you don't need to be a pro on the court to get behind that. With the U.S. Open around the corner, we've highlighted the easiest ways to channel your inner tennis champion, or at least, look like one.
1. An icy-yet-relaxed dress
2. A goes-with-anything skirt
A sporty skirt works both on and off the court. Take a cue from UNIF and liven it up layers and chunky jewelry.
3. A clean cut polo
A polo shirt is the classic tennis look and you need not look further than Lacoste, the french clothing line founded by tennis players René Lacoste and André Gillier known for its preppy flair.
4. A sleek jacket
Streamlined colors, a high collar, and functional design — a tennis jacket is both maintenance and sophisticated.
5. A pair of breezy shorts
6. Some light-as-air kicks
Tennis shoes are meant to help you speed across the court, and the gorgeous colorways on Serena Williams' Virgil Abloh x Nike "Queen" edition Nike Air Max 97's are functional and fly as hell.
7. A headband worthy of Andre Agassi
Andre Agassi was known as being one of the most style savvy players on the court, frequently rocking vivid looks from head to toe. One of his signature looks was a colorful headband to keep his once long tendrils out of his face. Snag a fluorescent version and live out the fantasy.
