Trending now: Getting schooled

School girl style, that uniform look that pairs knee socks and short skirts – a la 80’s Britney Spears – is trending again, but this time on court.  Long a staple of  Bethany Mattek-Sands’ tennis courtdrobe we saw the school girl combo at the Madrid Open recently  (pic below) on the ball girls.  It’s a sporty, kinda naughty, look that happens to be a hot street fashion trend in Japan as well.

And, above an early rounds Roland Garros ball girl via @YuhanOpen on Instagram. This is all adidas Y-3.

Ana Ivanovic and  Simona Halep, both wearing short adidas Y-3 dresses at RG,  aren’t actually wearing the socks in competition but we had fun while playing with them ourselves. What do you think of the shorter style we pulled in to match the racquet here? Yes or no?

  1. Hmmm so adidas got the ball kid kit deal while Lacoste is a main sponsor, too? Someone must be not too happy in Troyes… o_O

  2. I’m quite surprise that adidas Y-3 also sponsored Fabio and Simona. I thought it was an exclusive design for Ana and Jo only. More exposure perhaps? I knew Ana would ditch the high socks during competition. I also saw her using a sweatband for her intended clay court kit (red and green version of her australian open dress). I hope she uses it in her lead up in grass season.
