Any time of year is suitable for some sparkle, but it’s especially fashionable come the holidays. Instead of reserving the shimmer for holiday office parties and cocktail soirees, let your inner diva sing and shine on the court, too.
Let’s start from the ground up with a look at a few of your options. For shoes with some sheen, I recommend either the Prince T22 in Silver/Berry or the Asics Gel Challenger 9 in Silver/Lime. The T22 is an all-around great shoe that offers comfort, support and durability. The Asics shoe is really comfortable and is lighter feeling on court, but still offers good support. For lighter weight and speedier feel, go with the Asics. Though heavier feeling, the T22 is going to offer better durability, plus a six-month outsole guarantee.
For apparel, there are a few options, too. Tail’s Divine Wine Group has “crinkle” fabric accents that do the trick and some pieces also dazzle with rhinestones. For a more straightforward shimmer look, check out the latest collection from Jamie Sadock. This one pops with a bright green and shines with a silver fabric that has a metallic finish to it.
Best for last? Accessories, sometimes the smallest but arguably the most important element to any outfit. Any of the Alabama Girl hats will add the sparkle you’re looking for. They’re available in a range of colors, so choose your favorite or match your outfit. Jet bags come in a few silhouettes to carry whatever you need. In the tote style, the Silver Giraffe style combines an animal print and a subtle shimmer. I like the tote style because it’s versatile and comes with a matching cosmetics bag. For a backpack/sling style, the Plum Nickle Small Sling is one of my favorites because of its purplish hue. For a similar style, the Elite Sling in Silver Nickle provides a few more accessory pockets.
Those are a few of your shimmery tennis options, so go for a head-to-toe look or wear just a piece or two.
