Women's Tennis Skirts & Tennis Skorts Worn by the World's Best WTA Players
It's nice to have a few tennis skirts in your tennis wardrobe, even if you normally wear dresses. With the addition of a tennis top ot two, your can create a variety of tennis outfits to keep your look fresh and interesting.
Traditional pleated tennis skirts will never go out of style, or you could choose to keep up with the seasonal changes in style like the top women players. If you're feeling a bit rebellious, then there are some bold styles and imagery that'll get you noticed at the tennis club. You'll find all three types below.....
Designer Tennis Skirts From Stella McCartney & Fred Perry - A Cut Above The Rest
These two elegant designer tennis skirts bear the names of two British tennis apparel innovators - Stella McCartney and Fred Perry. Fred could also play the game, and won Wimbledon 3 times in a row.
His tennis fashion company rivaled that of Rene Lacoste and both companies now cater to more exclusive tennis apparel fashions, with restricted availability to enhance the select appeal.
Caroline Wozniacki's reveled in the superior skirts and skorts reaped from the partnership of adidas and Stella McCartney, and as Stella and the Barricade range have now merged as well, Maria Kirilenko, Andrea Petkovic, and Laura Robson get to show off Stella styles too.
I particularly like the colors available in the 2014 summer/fall collection from Stella. The Poppy Pink skort above can be paired with a spectacularly elaborate Stella tennis tank in Soft Powder or Sake. Stella's stylish skort is also available in Ginger and has the full range of adidas comfort features you'd expect from a premium tennis garment. Combine these beautiful bi-tonal tanks and skorts and you'll have a range of designer tennis outfits to show off on the courts for many months to come.
Loriet's Lovely Skorts Combine The Best Of Old & New
I'm always on the look out for exciting new women's tennis apparel from new brands eager to please and go the extra mile. One such company is Loriet, who've only been around since 2004 but look to be doing very nicely so far. Their vision is to bring back the best of the traditional styles whilst updating the textiles to meet today's higher performance demands and expectations.
Pictured left are Loriet's Valencia and London performance skorts, each with built-in matching ball shorts and each available in white with blue, green or pink. .
Loriet's 'flying lion' logo is a prominent feature on these attractive skorts, each constructed to filter out harmful sun rays, to quickly expel excess moisture and to fight microbes no matter how hard you play.
All this capability and finesse should put these Loriet skorts beyond the reach of most tennis budgets, but the exact opposite is true. At the moment you could buy both the London and the Valencia for the cost of one 'average' tennis skort.
In case you're wondering what tennis top to wear with either skort, of course Loriet have the answer with their Sydney Performance Tennis Tank (right), also available in three color options and also very comfortable and high tech. Why not find out what 'wearing the lion' will do for your confidence and comfort on court?
Variety Is The Spice of Life, & These Skirts Will Give Your Tennis Wardrobe That & More
If you stray a little from the mainstream path in women's tennis clothing, you can uncover some delightful offerings from some lesser known ranges, that can allow you to dress more distinctively on court.
You're not going to go unnoticed if you stroll to court in the tiger print tennis skirt or the rhinestone skull tennis skort from DTL. They won't get past Wimbledon's strict dress code, but that's the point - they're for the slightly rebellious tennis player. Yet they're made of modern fabrication for your freedom of movement and comfort.
LIJA Tennis Skorts Are As Diverse As They Are Desirable
LIJA is a relatively young tennis apparel brand, and like many a youth, they are not afraid to try something different. In addition to the beautiful and innovative tennis dresses featured on the white tennis dresses page, here are some very diverse tennis skorts that are also delightfully designed.
The Lija Printed tennis skort (below left and right) is likely to draw admirers on court, with it's bold asymmetrical design. All this style doesn't come at the expense of performance though, as Lija never scrimp on these essentials: each outfit has inner shorts and moisture wicking, quick drying fabrication. Lija tennis clothing is so pretty and popular, fast disappearing size options is often the case, but for the moment this enticing outfit has most available.
The Compression Ruffle tennis skort is the latest design from Lija, and is more typical of their flawlessly feminine range. A term used for many LIJA tennis outfits is that they are 'Compression', meaning that the material is form fitting for muscle support. It can flatten and smooth any surplus tummy tissue as an added bonus. There's even a handy key pocket concealed within this multi purpose flattering waistband for a little extra practicality. The raspberry color is one of my favorites for ladies'tennis clothing.
Tennis skorts don't come any more attractive than the Lija Match Tennis Skort, (below left), i'm sure you'll agree. It's elaborate layered loveliness is sure to engender envious eyes in those not lucky enough to be wearing it. This is one of Lija's best selling pieces for obvious reasons, but there's still a choice of sizes in the colors calypso or black, for a short while at least!
There are an amazing variety of Lija tennis tops that will look great with these skirts, making LIJA a good tennis club team uniform choice. It's highly unlikely that your opponent team has awakened to this cutting edge tennis apparel brand yet.
The (4)All Women Team At Jofit Have Designs On Your Tennis Apparel
If you're always on the lookout for something new and interesting in women's tennis clothing then this Jofit tennis outfit could be your cup of tea. It's been designed by a talented but confidently relaxed and easy going group of women who've set their sights on producing tennis (and golf) clothing to snugly fit a wider range of women's body types than the larger sports companies cater to.
Both skort and tank in delicious blue depth have cooling mesh panels carefully concealed behind the decorative stripes, and have been designed to retain their shape, match after match. The skort's wide waist band will comfortably flatten any problem areas whilst the outfit's classic lines appear to elongate the body, so you'll look your best without having to try too hard!.
Sadly, the cleverly made 'thumbs up' jacket has proved so popular, that there's only a choice of sizes in white now, but then white would go very nicely with the blue depth anyway. The fabrication throughout is high performance, as you'd expect.
The Difference Between a Tennis Skirt and a Tennis Skort
There can be some confusion over the difference between a skirt or skort. The truth is the variation is slight: Most 'tennis skirts' have built-in shorties or compression shorts now, thus making them 'skorts' (though there are exceptions - see 'Show No Love' below). This addition helps make a comfortable and integrated outfit. The new Nike Power Skirt (below left) is a perfect example.
Nike's new Power range replaces a perennial favorite, the Nike Border skirt which was a yearly purchase by many women tennis players. Sensible yet innovative, it has built-in shorts, cooling mesh paneling, side slits for easy movement, and Nike's Dri-Fit fabrication technology. It's available in a handful of colors like the Raspberry/purple one below or you can opt for variations of black/white if that's more your style.
If you prefer pleats, the Nike Four Knit Tennis Skirt, (above right) leans more to tradition without losing any performance features. It's worn by some of the top names in women's tennis like 2014 Wimbledon winner, Petra Kvitova, Li Na and doubles demon, Sara Errani. I particularly like the way Nike offer three different lengths of most skirts (11.8, 13 and 14.17 inches) so you can be as daring or conservative as you like.
It's still possible to choose a tennis skirt by itself if you have your own undershort preference. Show No Love Tenniswear still make many of their attractive skirts like this. In fact they prefer their customers to buy each article of their outfits separately to get the benefits of mixing and matching to add variety. They even encourage some customization, giving you the opportunity to select colors and patterns to make your one-of-a-kind outfit more special.
Though called a skirt, it's actually fitted with an integral high comfort under-short, so you can go for your shots and keep your modesty!
With seven different colors in the range, there's bound to be a match for your existing tennis apparel, and it would of course make an ideal team tennis skirt. If you click the link above, you can examine in fine detail this delightful and deservedly popular skirt.
One of the most frustrating things about buying new women's tennis apparel is the speed at which it dates due to the rapid changes in tennis fashion.
The K-Swiss Accomplish Pleated Tennis Skirt may be the answer, in that it's timeless look and pleating makes it look appealing whatever the tennis season.
