Wimbledon is underway and that means that it’s finally officially summer time for your wardrobe. Having already watched some of the women’s matches, we’re going to show you how to recreate a tennis-inspired look from clothes shops online in the UK and compare sports clothing to more casual alternatives.
Compare tennis skirts
The traditional tennis skirt is short and features tight pleats to allow freedom of movement without the fabric getting in the way. For the true Wimbledon look, we’ve found the Adidas Women’s Tennis Skirt from Adidas’s online clothes shop. This skirt has been designed specifically with sport in mind and as well as pleats, it’s also lined for comfort and features an Adidas logo on the pocket.
For those who don’t intend to actually play tennis in their skirt, a great fashion alternative is the White Cover Up Skirt available to buy from UK online shop George at Asda. This skirt is in traditional tennis white but features two layers of fabric for a gathered effect. The elasticated waist and flowing fabric make it comfortable to wear while still being stylish.
Compare polo shirts
Although traditionally the colour of tennis clothing is white, this has changed in recent years, especially where sponsors are involved. This season, some of the key tennis players are wearing navy polo shirts. To recreate the tennis look, take a peek at the Reebok Polo Shirt which is available to buy at online clothes shop . This polo features five button fastening and small collars for a great sporting look.
If you’re looking for the fashion alternative, have a look at the Frill Tie Blouse by YMC which is available from clothes shop online . This blouse features an array of frills for a feminine look while the button through front gives it a more formal appearance. In navy blue, this blouse is ideal for the summer.
When it comes to playing tennis, the sports stars need comfortable footwear which has been designed with comfort and performance in mind. The Adidas Originals ADITRACK Low top Trainers from Zalando are ideal. They are white and feature the famous Adidas three stripe logo.
If you’re looking for something a little more elegant, we think we’ve found the ideal alternative in the White Stitch Pumps from online clothes shop Dorothy Perkins. These simple white pumps look great with a white skirt for a chic summer look.
Sunshine is actually not a good thing for tennis players as it can get into their eyes and affect their playing performance. This is why they wear sun visors such as the Adidas Tennis Visor from the Adidas Shop online. In simple white with the Adidas logo, this visor is all the rage on the tennis courts.
For a less sporting alternative, take a look at the White Floppy Sun Hat from Debenham’s online clothes shop. This hat oozes feminine charm while still protecting you from the sun.
