Dorothea Douglass Manages To Play Tennis Despite Her Tennis Apparel
Stun Your Opponent With Style
There's never been such a variety of stylish, yet functional tennis apparel available to buy online today - but with so many alternatives, which should you choose? Long gone are the days when the primary function of women's tennis apparel was to cover up the feminine form with heavy white cloth.
Now, style, shape and color serve to enhance femininty, and if chosen correctly, can even intimidate your opponent! The big names in sports apparel manufacture, such as adidas, Nike, and Reebok, know their success depends on designing women's tennis fashion with a stylish edge, as many of the 'optional extras' like wicking fabric, UV protection and bacterial resistance are now considered standard.
Women Tennis Players With Great Fashion Flair
Maria Sharapova Demostrates How Much Less Material There Is In A Modern Tennis Dress
To promote their designs, tennis brands enlist the help of the top women players to showcase each improvement - normally the higher ranked the player the more lucrative the deal, but being naturally good looking like Maria Sharapova or Maria Kirilenko can add a nought or two to any financial arrangement.
Maria Shrapova's apparel is supplied by Nike who constantly strive to give Maria the best cutting-edge tennis fashion that money can buy. They employ a team of designers to fashion each new tennis outfit and allow Maria to put in her own creative input into the final product. Serena Williams equally makes her preferences known to partner Nike with her own Signature line to display her wonderfully creative and functional tennis apparel.
adidas Meets Nike's Challenge With Fashion Designer Tennis Apparel
adidas haven't been slow to confront the challenge of their main rivals. They've joined forces with established clothing designer Stella McCartney (Sir Paul and Linda McCartney's daughter) to produce a collection of tennis outfits emphasising pretty feminine embellishments with functional cool/dry fabrication from adidas' CLIMALITE® fabric technology. Although Caroline Wozniacki's tennis might let her down occasionally, her tennis apparel never does because she now exclusively wears adidas by Stella McCartney tennis apparel.
The good news for anyone wanting to secure a style victory as well as a points one on the tennis court is that Stella's designer tennis wear is often readily available to buy online soon after Caroline first showcases it to the public. It's priced a little higher than 'ordinary' tennis clothing, but what price is that look of envy on your opponent's face?
Caroline Wozniacki's Stella Designer Style
Nike often make Maria and Serena's apparel handiwork readily available online too, so why not model yourself on the best? If you're 5'2" tall however it might be better to try Dominika Cibulkova's Lacoste tennis outfit to better match your body type than try to emulate the 6'2" Sharapova!
Custom Tennis Shoes To Flaunt Your Uniqueness
If you like to show your own creativity then why not complete your tennis ensemble with customizable women's tennis court shoes. adidas (mi adidas) now offer you the chance to create your own unique shoe based on their best selling adidas Barricade 7, worn by many of the top players.
Precocious American tennis star, Melanie Oudin showed just how stunning a well designed tennis shoe can look during her impressive run at the US Open with her customized yellow and pink 'Believe' adidas shoes. You can choose colors, patterns, width, sole design and even text, like Melanie.
Now Nike have introduced their first customizable equivalent (Nike ID) for their highly successful tennis shoes for women, the Zoom Breathe 2K11, shown below. It's worn by top women players, Petra Kvitova, Sabine Lisicki, Marion Bartoli and Lucie Safarova, so it's a great tennis shoe, but you can make yours unique by clicking the link below and giving your artistic side free reign!
There are now a good range of women's tennis bags to choose from with more creative designs than the large unisex options required by those who need to carry 10-12 racquets to court. If you only need to carry one or two racquets, and want to emphasize the fashionable, then Whak Sak and Jet offer a wide and varied range of stylish and colorful bags, yet replete with ingenious functional pockets and attachments.
If money is no object, and you just want to look the best as you walk to court, Cortliglia Designer Women's Tennis Bags are for you. Women's Tennis Legend, Steffi Graf owns the Cortiglia Marina Nero - Italian for black. It's hand crafted in Italy using only the finest materials and looks at least as good as any designer tennis bag on the market. The down side is you'll have to get used to answering endless 'Where did you that gorgeous tennis bag' questions, though!
Tennis Jewelry - Put Some Sparkle Into Your Game
Diamond tennis bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and other tennis jewelry don't directly help your tennis game, but can boost your self-esteem and confidence, and indirectly give you an edge on court. Chris Evert is credited with introducing the world to the term 'tennis bracelet' when her diamond bracelet clasp broke on the US Open tennis court in 1987, and stopped play as she tried to find it.
In today's game Serena Williams is perhaps the most avid admirer of tennis jewelry and she sports some wonderful creations to embellish her game. She's even had pieces made and presented to her gratis to promote the creator's products.
Just a word of warning: Looking fantastic in the best women's tennis wear can sometimes irritate your opponent to the point where they play better. Maria Sharapova herself was a victim of style at Wimbledon, losing to lowly ranked Alla Kudryavtseva in the second round. Alla said she 'didn't like her (Maria's) outfit. It was one of my motivations to beat her!'.
