Tennis Identity

Holiday in Istanbul.

Pictured left Maria Sharapova wears the new Rival Knit Tennis Dress from her personal collection. It uses asymmetrical color blocks of blues and blue grays and has a cooling open t-back, $110. Built in modesty cups make finding a bra to work with the design unnecesssary.

Artistic, casual look for a tennis dress and beautiful colors together. Good length.

Pictured is the Nike Holiday Set Point Graphic Tank, $55, in imperial purple with vivid grape. There is a light graphic woven into the fabric. Shelf bra only so those well endowed will likely have to find a bra. See the Set Point Graphic Tank in pinktop in all pink inset right. The skort is a ruffled edge coordinating Set Point Skort, $55.

Other players wearing Nike holiday group in Istanbul include Petra Kvitova and Li Na; everyone in something different. It's a large group dominated by pink and purple hues. I prefer my pinks muted with heavy doses of deep sophisticated colors like black, navy and purple like Azarenka wears here, but there are those who adore full on pink. For you there is plenty here. 

Congrats to the players who made it to the finals. Great group. Good luck in 2012 to all.
