We’ve all heard that life imitates art. But apparently, fashion imitates sport.
There’s something about tennis trends that translate seamlessly into off-court lifestyles as well. From the clean-cut sophistication of Wimbledon fits to the edgy kits that allow players to stand out on court, tennis fashion truly provides something for everyone. And it has certainly stood the test of time.
We have tennis to thank for countless trends that have survived generations. Stan Smith gave us the sneakers that we see on people of all ages to this day. René Lacoste bestowed his beloved polos upon us, along with the signature crocodile that is recognized globally. And Chris Evert’s tennis bracelet will likely go down in both sports and fashion history.
This summer, there’s been a new takeover. Enter: the tennis skirt.
