Vera Zvonareva Shows Off Fall K-Swiss Women’s Tennis Fashion. Props to Cara Black and Liezel Huber.

Vera Zvonareva US Open 2009 1 Unlike Nike and adidas sponsored players K-Swiss athletes are not restricted to one kit during a tournament. Allowed to pick from the full season’s range, we get to see a good glimpse of the line’s offerings. Unfortunately no one chose to wear my current fave, the beautiful liberty purple and black Empire Tank and Skort.     


What we did see was one hot dress and a bit of what’s coming next, the fall season brick varsity red and fig (a light brown). Fitting and pretty but I really wanted to see the energy of that most regal of hues.


As the weather cools over Flushing Meadows, the players are looking to keep warm during play. The v-necked Mesh Long Sleeve top, $55, pictured left on Vera Zvonareva is a great pick for chillier days. I like that it’s fitted without hugging too hard around the mid-section. She has paired it with the women’s fall Pleated Skirt, $55.


Doubles duo Cara Black and Liezel Huber teamed up in matching  Zip Front Polos, $55 and Pleated Skirts in a sophisticated palette of ebony and clover.  The look was strong and tailored, with great chest and shoulder coverage which a lot of women like. These polo tops are fitted and not boxy at all.


Vera Zvonareva US Open 2009 K Swiss For those players with more of a penchant for body hugging drama (and currently playing in warmer climes) take a look at the bandage dress inspired V-Tank style, $75 USD, pictured right again on Zvonareva. It resembles a Herve Leger style but is all performance. The angled straps are sturdy, designed to prevent the downward slipping tube we’ve all experienced at some point in our lives.


K-Swiss clothes are well cut and figure flattering, UV protective,breathable, antibacterial performance.The skirts run on the short side which I personally like.


Find the looks at K-Swiss and Tennis-Warehouse. The newer fall colors should be out soon.
