Tennis Identity

The top 12 tennis fashions of 2014.

Squeeking it in before year-end. Here are my picks for 2014's best (and most innovative) tennis fashions:

Dominika Cibulkova in Lacoste at the Australian Open. Notes – Classic with a twist. A flattering neckline and color for all. Super short style in modern wicking fabric.

Yaroslava Shvedova in Fila at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells. Notes – Modern take on separates here. Love the creative placement of bright color on grey.

BEST_RADWANSKA_Roma2014

 Aga Radwanska in Lotto for the French Open. Notes – This dress is one of three special collection tennis dresses Aga's apparel sponsor put together for her to wear. It's a toss up between this and the butterflies

Caroline Wozniacki and Maria Kirilenko

Caroline Wozniacki and Maria Kirilenko in adidas Barricade by Stella McCartney for the French Open. Notes – This tennis skirt is the bomb. Add a fitted, breathing sleeveless tank and you had me at hello. See the look here in yellow.

Tursunov_Heritage_FROpen14

Dmitry Tursunov in Fila Heritage for the French Open. Notes – This tennis shirt inspired by Bjorn Borg's signature polo is a hit. A classic with a twist.

Julia-Goerges-at-Wimbledon

Julia Goerges in Fila at Wimbledon. Notes – How to do tennis whites right. Everything else for women at Wimbledon was boring.

Nike_Wimbledon_Roger_Federer_2014

Roger Federer in Nike for Wimbledon. Notes – Another example of whites done right – this one for men. The subtle menswear striping in the fabric is what makes this shirt a stand out.

Ana Ivanovic US Open

 Ana Ivanovic in adidas at the US Open. Notes – Sprays of light-catching sparkle add modern magic to this very clean look. Ana shines in anything but this one looks good on everyone else too (IF you've got the bod).

Ralph Lauren Fall 2014

Ralph Lauren Fall 2014. Notes – It's not often that Ralph Lauren deviates from classic silhouettes. This kit was a big hit here in the office – an absolute first time junior staffers jonesed to play in a full RL look.

CAPTIVA-50K-QUALIFYING-FINAL-DOUBLES-DAY-3-11-3-2014-MAURICIO-PAIZ-44302 I (Cici Bellis)

Fall Nike separates here on Cici Bellis. Notes – The colors are perfect together and again the look appealed big-time to our younger players.

Leyton Hewitt in Athletic DNA pictured here at the Sony Open. Notes – Athletic DNA is doing a great job infiltrating the ranks of younger generations of players with unconventional (read radical) prints in ultra comfy fabrics. The intensity is a good fit for today's game.

Berdych-London-look-2014

H&M on Tomas Berdych. Notes:  H&M took quite a few misteps this year experimenting with tight fits, florals and some fairly fug colors. In the end, the brand served up some of its best looks for London. This stronger, darker kit FINALLY befits the tall Czech's chisled look (and game).
