Above, Heather sports New Balance’s new Tournament Racerbank tank which features a N houndstooth burnout mesh and built in bra. It’s paired with their Women’s Tournament Skort. Orange is a flattering color on Heather and a perfect fit for sunny Melbourne. Watch her fingernails too; they are SURE to coordinate.

A white Hyperlight jacket is a study in modern minimalism with sleek lines and ergonomic design. The jacket is for off court as well as warm up as needed.
