Tennis turnouts

20Jan10

Colour has been the new white for tennis for years, but the clothes at the Australian Open tennis championship this week have been almost as exciting as the play.

Apple green, lime green, brilliant orange, fashionable coral have darted across the court in both the men’s and women’s matches.  Serena Williams looked amazing in an orange dress – Rafael Nadal made a striking appearance in orange and cerise and Roger Federer chose strong turquoise.

Maria Sharapova must have wished she had chosen bright to outshine her opponent, Maria Kirilenko.  Sharapova’s fashion-forward outfit did not bring her tennis luck, but was a stunning ensemble.  It would not look out of place off the court.  The lightweight, two-layer dress combined a deep blue slip dress made of Dri-Fit fabric with a printed mesh overlay designed with a watercolour pattern in blue, green, and subtle touches of yellow.  A slight ruffle at the neckline and criss crossing detail at the waist gave femininity and elegance to the outfit.  The cap was also the same amazing shade of deep blue.  And she had a very stylish jacket and gear bag in the same colour.  The blue colour, which is almost a petrol or carbon colour, is a universal colour, so should suit most people.  It is also a fashion colour for the coming winter. Sharapova’s dress is the first in a series of looks for 2010 that will launch her collection, which will be available for the first time at Nike retail stores.
