If you are anything like me or my tennis friends, your life is busy and you are usually juggling your outfits with your daily activities — from the gym, to work, to the court, to running errands, etc.! So we wanted to help you out and grabbed 10 super cute pieces from Nike and made several different outfits perfect for all areas of your day — from sporty to sassy to strong looks — we’ve got you covered!
Like the professional athletes of our sport, today’s tennis players don’t just play tennis anymore to get their exercise in — you can find them in the gym, running, hiking, taking barre classes, kickboxing, cross-fitting, etc. Which is why this blog is a shout out to those dynamic ladies out there who find themselves on the court, off the court, in the gym and every where in between on a daily basis. These are the looks the active, athletic tennis ladies live in.
Fun. Fit. Fabulous.
Your court time is at 9 am, there is still a chill in the air, so you throw on your Nike Baseline 3/4 Sleeve Top paired with the Flirty Knit Skort and Nike Novelty Tank. Lace up those Lunar Ballistecs and you are ready to take on your opponents. (Side note, the Lunar Ballistecs have quickly become my favorite shoe for so many reasons — flashy, classy, lightweight, durable, stable…yes please! These shoes look great on the court, as well as off it, and they are the perfect tweener shoe that can keep you moving confidently.) After a couple hours on the court, and hopefully some great tennis and great stories (on the changeovers of course), you’re ready to head to a quick, healthy lunch with your doubles partner to discuss strategies. Throw on the super comfortable Spring Capri Tight and the Woven Full Zip Jacket and you’re set to lunch casually, yet cute. What comes next in the day? A quick trail run seems about right to get some extra cardio in before you hit the court for some extra serving practice before it’s that time of the day to head to the grocery store, start prepping dinner or pick up the little ones. How quickly the day goes by when you are making the most of it while looking like the fit fashionista you are!
Active. Advantage. Ace.
Start your day off with a great butt-kicking workout at the gym. Nothing like an hour of sweating it out at cardio combat class to get your adrenaline pumping! To look the part, the Nike Women’s Spring Printed Miler Tank is a great option to give you a fashion forward look, while wearing a light as air, moisture wicking tank. Pair that with the comfy Victory Short or the Spring Capri Tight and throw on the Spring Knit Sweater Jacket — the perfect match! Fill your favorite tennis tote (right now, ours is the Wilson Verve Tote) with your tennis/gym gear (TW water bottle, balls, Nike featherweight visor) and everything (and anything) else you could possibly need to take on the day. After grabbing a protein smoothie you know you want to get some time on the court to work on your serve and possibly get a quick hit in to iron out that backhand cross-court before your big USTA match at the end of the week! Wearing your Victory shorts, you take the court determined and after a solid hour, you are feeling confident about your game. Throw your Spring Knit Sweater on to stay warm while looking sporty chic. With no evening plans, you surprise your spouse and meet up for a casual sushi dinner to refuel after an active day!
Sassy. Sporty. Strong.
It’s match day! How does that saying go, if you want to play good, you better look good! With that being said, picking out your outfit is a cinch — grab the Spring Premier Maria Skort and pair it with the Spring Premier Maria Tank to give you that high-waisted, long-legged look that will make your opponents not only intimidated, but jealous of your fashion sense! Paired with those ever so comfortable Lunar Ballistecs and the Spring Baseline 3/4 Sleeved Top, you’re out the door and amped to get on the court! After a court battle, you walk away with the “W” and what better way but to celebrate than with your teammates, some iced tea and snacks at the club. You quickly change out of your match clothes and into the more comfortable Spring Victory Short (how appropriate!) to enjoy your victory. After enough time in the sun and re-hashing your match, it’s that time to hit the gym with your trainer for a quick 30 minute arm session. Throw on those comfortable capris and you are gym ready! Head home and enjoy an evening of relaxing in the jacuzzi with a glass of pinot.
Make the most of your Nike wardrobe by picking up a bunch of these pieces and wearing them in every way possible! Looking chic and sporty is simple with these great looks, and paired with the new, flashy Lunar Ballistecs, you can’t go wrong!
