New Nike Maria Sharapova collection dress packs a punch in Australia.

Neon accents pack a punch and are one of fashion's hottest looks for spring. This is one beautiful, on-trend and functional tennis dress. I love the fresh energy the electric green accents add to what truly is the most sensible color under the hot sun, white.

Maria Sharapova Australia Dress frontSlash like cuts have been made at each side of the dress and across the back with breathable mesh added underneath as functional contrast. The look is super fitted and somewhat futuristic. The dress is $130 and comes with a supportive (read useful) built in bra. You will need to buy shorties, $28 in the matching green.

If you prefer separates, check out the Sharapova collection Statement Slam tank and skort which also work the white and green but you will lose the cut outs and those I like.

Can't see them here but Sharapova is wearing the Nike Lunar Speed 3 womens shoe, $130, pictured below, lightweight flywire which ride close to the ground.

And FINALLY, for those who want the complete look, Nike has made and sent to market a visor to match Maria's dress! Not just for Maria anymore. It's a good one too, black under brim to cut glare. The only way to go with a visor or hat.

Find it at Nike, Tennis Warehouse or tennis retailers worldwide.
