Serena Williams took the 2012 BNP Paribas WTA Championship Sunday in Istanbul. The finals was, of course, a show of tennis talent but, bonus for lovers of tennis fashion, a look at Nike's newest collections designed for winter play.
Above Serena continues with her winning red, white and blue theme and wore the new Nike Thunder Statement sleeveless top in sunburst, $60 USD, and woven skort in thunder blue. The skort is a really fun twist on the traditional pleated skirt, $58. As Serena likes, the top is fitted but not skimpy-strapped. Great choice for those who want their sleeveless cool with coverage.
There are quite a few unique items in this Thunder Group so take a look around. Right, is the dri-fit cotton polo, a great looking top for those who like to keep their upper arms under cover.
Maria Sharapova gave it her all wearing the newest from her namesake Nike line. Pictured is the Maria Back Court Tank in Bright Peach with Hasta, $65 (moderate support bra included), and skort in Hasta with Seaweed, $65.
Both of these items, designed by Maria herself, come in a variety of colors. I love darker sophisticated colors, especially when playing indoors (no sun/heat issue) so the top, right, will be hitting my collection.
Look for very similar styles in Nike's Holiday group but done in black, white and white lime.
