Four Fixes For Your Tennis Wardrobe

Eleven by Venus Williams

Problem: Skirt undershorts always dig into my legs and emphasize unsightly cellulite that make me feel self-conscious.

Sofibella SkirtSolution: Cellulite is inevitable in 90% of women. However, some spandex is cut to small for the skirt size. You have two options: find a longer skirt that provides more coverage or shop skirts that provide more “give” in the spandex. A skirt that is forgiving and available in 3 different lengths (Including Plus Sizes): Sofibella Women’s Perseverance Skirt.

SpanxAnother trending option is the skirted legging-it provides excellent coverage and has a built in pocket for your tennis ball: Lija Skapri. Or try one designed by the nation’s leader in looking fabulous: Spanx. Tip- For skirts you already own: you can simply roll/tuck the spandex up one or two times. This will provide you with some slack so that you don’t get the “Skapri Lijaorange peel” effect.

Problem: My local country club only has clay courts- I’m not much of a slider and I really dislike having to constantly kick the clay out of the grooves in the bottom of my shoe.

Solution: Asics makes clay court shoes that feel exactly like their hard court ones. From experience, whenever we would travel to the East Coast and play in the clay court tournaments we would slip these on and transition effortlessly. Guaranteed slide-proof. Asics Gel Resolution 6 Clay White/Silver

Problem: My country club only allows me to wear white. I’m tired of the preppy collared look. I want to stand out!Inphorm

Solution: You have to choose unique fabrics and layers to play with. Depending on your body type, you can utilize draping or ruching. Or, if your club permits add a pop of color or a dramatic line. A fantastic line to check out: InphormInphorm

Problem: I am more mature in age, but I still want to wear styles that are fashion forward and fit my body. I want apparel that doesn’t age me, but also is age appropriate.Chrissie By Tail

Futuristic Upgrade: Fila Australian Open

Fila Platinum Collection for Women

Fila Spring 2015Founded in 1911, Fila has a rich history in tennis fashion. The brand has always strived to seamlessly combine superior fabrics, luxury and art. With its distinctive F logo, the brand is associated with athletic excellence delivered with its usual Italian elegance. In 2015, the brand still remains the same…only with a futuristic infusion.

Sam Querrey will don a classic white and navy polo while Andreas Seppi will sport a bolder look with his navy power and shocking orange Platinum Laser Cut Top.

Fila Spring 2015Jankovic and Georges showcase outfits with removable bra padding and the ever-flattering diva pink print.
