Whaddya know, it’s that time of year again! Time to prove once more that tennis is the most fashion-forward sport out there. With the recent end of all the Fashion Weeks that took place across the world, we got some insight into the next trends to come in the upcoming year. Just like last year, I couldn’t help but notice resemblances between apparel found at Tennis Warehouse and outfits showcased on the catwalk in the past month. Here, I’ll show you!

In fashion, there’s a fine line between knowing what’s in style and what’s not. However in this case, there’s a bold line! Pure Lime and Victoria Beckham do away with the common thin-stripe pattern and bring large-stripe colorblocking to their collections instead. Go ahead, cross the line and make a statement with these louder, stripe-print skirts.

Raise your hand if you like to mix and match items in your wardrobe to turn one outfit into two, three or four. My hand is up, way up. I practice this with my tennis and workout gear, too. In that spirit, I thought it would be a fun exercise (pun intended?) to see how far I could take this concept with a tennis tank top.
To do this, I chose the new Nike Premier Maria Tank in the ivory color. I liked the feminine neckline, and let’s be honest, white — or off white in this case — is an easy candidate for tucking seamlessly into new ensembles.
October has begun! And while we are all enjoying pumpkin flavored everything, another great thing that happens this month is the explosion of pink things and Breast Cancer Awareness. An annual campaign starts every year on October 1 to not only help create awareness of this disease, but also work on finding cures and raising money to do so.
In a sport like tennis that is dominated by strong women at every level, this cause hits home for tennis players all over the world. There is a good chance you know someone who has fought a battle or had a scare with breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Behind skin cancer, it effects the highest number of women. However, since 1989, the death rates from breast cancer have been declining as a result of better treatment and earlier detection through screening and increased awareness. Right now, according to the American Cancer Society, there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
