Tennis jackets to fit any budget

Tennis Jackets: Save vs Splurge

 

It’s time for a little shopping! Should I save or splurge? Inspired by the rainy weather today here in San luis Obispo, I wanted to get a jacket. My save today is the Asics Fall Racquet Jacket in green jade and is a bargain at $54. This lightweight jacket features all the technologies you need as well as some stylish details. It features a full-zip entry and elastic binding at the cuffs and hem along with a tonal screen print and rushing on the back.  For my second pick, the adidas Stella McCartney Spring Jacket in fresh aqua is a perfect splurge item. This lightweight jacket is perfect to throw on after a match and is stylish enough to keep on once you step off the courts.The exaggerated collar make quite a statement on both the front and back.

With each of these Save Vs. Splurge blogs, I’ll first feature a “save” since everyone loves a good deal, myself included, and I am always on the hunt to find the best price. And the second will be a “splurge,” which I think is necessary at times to purchase an item that is top of the line or just released. The products will range from apparel to shoes to bags to accessories. Keep checking back in with us for another edition of Save vs Splurge!

US Open Gear Check: Caroline Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki is going into the US Open this year in top form. She clinched her first round match against Ying-Ying Duan 6-2, 7-5 and next up for Caroline is Chanelle Scheepers. Let’s take a look at what Caroline’s gear is for the US Open this year.

Her look: Caroline is looking sharp in hues of blue in her adidas Stella McCartney Fall Ink Dress. Her Stella Barricade 8s (in navy) match perfectly — these durable, stylish shoes are quick on the court and provide great traction combined with stability. They received high marks in our playtest and we love the look of these! She tops off her look with an adidas visor to help shield the NY sun.

Her equipment: Controversy has swirled around Caroline’s current racquet of choice as she is playing with a blacked out frame at the moment — if you take a closer look, I think you can figure out what 16×19 frame she has decided to use as her weapon of choice this year at the Open. Her blacked out frame is accessorized with Yonex Super Grap over grip in white and pink Yonex dampeners. Since she is not with a current racquet sponsor, she is sure to be seen toting around all of her gear in the Stella McCartney Bag.

Hope you are enjoying all of the tennis and if you want a closer look at any of the player’s gear — be sure to let us know!

Play with heart,

Quick Review: adidas Barricade 8 by Stella McCartney

First things first. Tennis shoes designed by Stella McCartney!

I don’t know about you ladies, but I love when a fashion icon steps into the tennis world and puts her mark on things! And Stella is not only designing tennis apparel for adidas, but also shoes. However, I have to be honest, when first seeing pictures of these new Barricade 8s, I wasn’t so sure about them. Then I got my first pair and quickly slipped them on — magically, they looked great on my feet! Then the other colorways slowly crept their way into our warehouse and after seeing the orange and blue colors, I was sold.
