As we were recently reminded by Donatella Versace following the release of her latest collection, “Sportswear is the future of fashion”. We think most of you will agree, and you’re probably thinking about those snazzy leggings you picked up from Sweaty Betty or Varley, or the latest cool kicks from adidas or Nike. But some of the most fashionable athletes are undoubtedly female tennis players who get to wear feminine skirts and dresses that beautifully translate their movements on the court.
Today’s tenniswear is both practical and elegant, and whilst yoga pants and running shoes are becoming the modern woman’s everyday clothing of choice, we think tennis outfits are what we should be reaching for when meeting our friends in the evening.
Here is our pick of 5 tennis dresses that can effortlessly take you from the court to cocktails. Just swap the tennis shoes for heels, and the sweatband for a tennis bracelet, and you’re ready to hit the bar.
Sweaty Betty Volley Dress
Monreal London Finish Line Dress
adidas Y-3 Roland Garros On-Court Dress
Ivincia Primavera Tennis Dress
