Serena Williams’ Wimbledon whites. Tennis fashion 2011.
Serena is back and Nike has this tennis dress ready for her return to Wimbledon. The classic style is reminiscent of old-world style tennis dresses (a play on the sporty sailor in white and obsidian navy) though far, far shorter and fully updated for movement and breathability. According to Nike Serena wanted a style that respected Wimby’s tennis heritage.
The Smash Lawn dress will cover a full support bra but leave you open enough to stay cool. It is part of a collection of four pieces all in the same theme. If you’ve got a little going on around the belly you may want to look at the separates. Although designed to be very slimming, the dress is going to hug those more “un-toned” areas at the waist. The skirt will not constrict or cling however; the special pleats open up and create a skirt that moves with you without hugging. The skort and sleeved top are each $50 USD. The dress runs $85.
The Nike Air Max Mirabella 3 Serena wears is $85. All in all a very pretty welcome back to Slam tennis for Ms. Williams.
