So I was perusing our blog page and saw that a while back Tiffani wrote a blog about retro men’s tennis apparel. And I thought what about the women? Brands such as adidas, Lacoste, Wilson and Fila have all thrown some old-school style in their current line-ups from apparel to accessories to shoes.
adidas rocks its retro logo on their tees in their new training collection. Check out the adidas Women’s Crosses Trefoil Tee and adidas Tennis Trefoil Tee for a retro style on or off the court. The white tees have a big pops of color that stand out from the crowd.
Lacoste stays true to its heritage with its women’s spring collection. Almost every piece has some retro flair. From the classic ball pattern on the polo and dress to the pleats on the tennis skirt, Lacoste is the epitome of classic style. Another tennis staple that never goes out of style is the Lacoste Women’s Spring V-Neck Sweater. It is perfect layering piece for a cool day of tennis. Lacoste didn’t forget about accessories. Complete your old-school look with a headband featuring its classic Croc logo in white or pink.
Fila always seem to work in some retro style into different pieces of its collections. My favorite piece is the Fila Women’s ’12 Essenza Cotton Borg Jacket. It is available in a variety of colors including pink, light blue, navy and black. The style is styled after a jacket that Bjorn Borg wore but has a feminine fit. It can be thrown on after a tough match to keep you warm so you can keep looking cool. Keeping with the old-school flair, Fila has headbands and wristbands featuring the classic red, navy and tan colorway similar to the ones that Borg would wear.
Lastly, Wilson shows its love for the classics with shoes. This year Wilson released two new shoes, the Wilson Pro Staff Classic Supreme and Wilson Pro Staff Classic II. While these shoes may look retro, they are performance shoes for the tennis court. We even did a playtest on the Wilson Pro Staff Classic Supreme (check it out here). It’s a perfect shoe for those that like to wear their shoes both on and off the court.
While many people are about wearing the newest fashion, some like to still rock the old-school look and these brands allow them to do it.
