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 looked great wearing the adidas By Stella McCartney Tennis Skort during her Spring season matches, and as Stella and Barricade have now combined this year, Maria Kirilenko, Andrea Petkovic, and Laura Robson get to show off Stella styles too.
The stylish skort has got the full range of adidas comfort features and is also available in white (with yellow the two dominant spring season colors) and now legend blue too. Combined with Stella tennis tanks in any of three combinations of the above colors, you'll have numerous 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?
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 skort could be your cup of tea. It's been designed by an 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.
I particularly like the external ball pocket and the seemimgly simple yet striking design, especially when combined with the 'Thumbs Up' Jacket, as you can see below. The jacket's quite cleverly made as well with it's thumb hole option to keep the sleeves in place no matter how vigorous the play. The skort comes in the colors below, and you're spoilt for choice with 6 jacket colors. 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 Basic Power Skirt is a perfect example.
Nike's new Basic Power range replaces a perennial favorite, the Nike Border skirt which was a yearly purchase by many women tennis players. Sensible yet innovative, they have built-in shorts, cooling mesh paneling, side slits for easy movement, and Nike's Dri-Fit fabrication technology. They're available in all the colors shown below or you can opt for the black/whites 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. I particularly like the way Nike offer three different lengths of each skirt (11.8, 13 and 14.17 inches) so you can be as daring or conservative as you like. Check out the full range of Nike skirts here.
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.
Why not pair up your new skirt with the legendary textile technology of Under Armour and their Compression Tennis Undershorts (left).
Far from restricting, Under Armour's four way stretch fabric actually promotes easy movement whilst delivering superior cooling ventilation, so you'll hardly know you got them on!
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 Fuse Distract tennis skort is likely to draw attention as the name suggests, with it's elaborate, asymmetrical design. The one below left is in 'Iris' but it's also available in 'Coal' and has inner shorts and moisture wicking, quick drying fabrication. It's so pretty and popular, there's more on the way to replace the fast disappearing sizes.
The Compression Ace tennis skort is the latest design from Lija, and achieves a layered look by clever use of a red mesh panel at the front that doubles as ventilation. The undershort is made of the same material as the skirt as you can see (below right). The Ace has a 13" center back length and is not only moisture wicking and quick drying, it also gives UV40 sun protection.
If you find the Distract a little too distracting, the Lija Pleated MeshTennis Skort in white or zest has subtle pleats, but is still elaborate enough to entice envious eyes. The undershort is suitable for tennis ball storage. A term used for many LIJA tennis outfits is that they are 'Compression', meaning that the material is form fitting for muscle support.
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.
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.
