Lija's up-coming spring 2013 tennis line will release in three groups. Vivid on January 15, Reflex, February 15 and Tranquil, April 1. I can't wait.
The new collection plays with a springy palette of energetic solids, changing textures, new silhouettes, fabrics, straps, drape and back detail in whimsical ways. Some outfits incorporate compression, others are body skimming or totally relaxed.
Compression garments, no longer reserved for under-wear, are made of a denser fabric than others. They still breathe and stretch but by nature are a heavier weight. Three reasons to like compression: no jiggle, a smooth look, and warm muscles. Whether or not you like tightish the feel, that's personal preference.
Inset below is a wrap tennis dress (it's a mock wrap). Diane Von Furstenberg took the lead with this flattering silhouette years ago. This version, cut for movement will give you a nice waistline while you carve up the court.
