Tennis Identity

Up next, Lija reinvents black and white tennis fashion.

Lija's Fall 2012 "Shades of Grey" tennis collection rolls out June 15. Fashion is always so way ahead of us isn't it?

Whatever they call it, this designer group will certainly work for summer, especially in white. I like that it's something new and not retro inspired. Luxe fabric blocking, lace overlays and asymmetrical styling raise black and white from the ordinary. Compression is built into many of the pieces and is noted as such.

The skorts run the gamut from smooth sophisticate (Sprint Relay Skort, stretch overlay lace (Compression Lace Skort) or prom-ish ruffle (their Fuse Distract Skort is a redo of a very popular style).

If you like shorts, they've got a cute running style as well as the tight booty (my term) that teen girls wear alone.

Your choice, your style, your needs.

Consider looking at some of Lija's new artistic warm-up pieces as well. The company blends athletic style with fashion very beautifully. 

This Fluid Destiny Pullover cowl neck (pictured below)  will keep you feeling warm and looking elegant.
