The temps are rising and summer is here, which means the fashionistas are out and about making their style statements on the courts. Maybe you are making the trip across the pond to enjoy some tennis with the Queen or maybe you are just getting the ladies together for a Wimbledon Whites party at the club or wanting to look on trend this year. Either way, we have some wicked white outfits for you to check out to keep your style in check this summer. While white is definitely in this season and look great on the court, one of our favorite things to do is pair our white looks with some colorful pops of accessories — so check out our White Hot looks!
What do you carry your tennis equipment in? A large 12 pack? A smaller more convenient 3 pack? Or the more mobile backpack? For this week’s save vs splurge, I choose two sleek black backpacks at two different price points. For my save, I chose the Jet CoolJet Bag in Ostrich Ink. You can carry one oversized racquet or two smaller racquets in a specialized compartment. There are tons of accessory pockets to stay organized as well as a convertible strap to turn a shoulder strap into two backpack straps. For my splurge, I chose the ultra-luxurious Court Couture Hampton Backpack Bag. This bag has a slightly bigger racquet compartment that can hold two oversized racquets. The fun polka dot interior has enough room to hold your other equipment along with several accessory pockets and detachable backpack straps.

I am one of those girls that enjoys shopping. I have days where I am on a mission to find the best deals and lowest prices on everything and anything. Then there are the days that I just want to go all out and buy the cream of the crop. Luckily at Tennis Warehouse, I can have my cake and eat it too!
Bags are a prime example of this. The Jet Tote Bag in Reptilian Rose is a super stylish bag that can hold a couple of racquets, plenty of pockets and compartments, and comes with a matching cosmetic case. You can buy it for $67.99. When I want to dish out a little bit more cash, I head towards Court Couture. These highly fashionable bags are top quality with plenty of pockets, a large compartment to hold a lap top, and a separate cosmetics case. Get the Court Couture Cassanova Bag in Dusty Rose Daisy for $209.00.
Every girl needs a little black and white dress, even out on the tennis court. Nike’s Basic Border Dress II comes in at a budget friendly price of $70.00 and features contrast border details, built in shelf bra, and mesh panels for ventilation. On the other side, the Eliza Audley Baby Doll Dress steps up the fashion with a pleated body and cute straps that form a racer back. Your splurge is worth every penny with this high quality dress at $150.00.
I can’t forget about shoes! Who doesn’t love a new pair of shoes? And this season, it is all about standing out with color. adidas shows how it is done with their budget conscious adidas Barricade Team 2 in prime ink blue and red. The comfort-oriented and lightweight model comes in at $74.95. When you’re looking for a high performance tennis shoe that you will get your money’s worth, the Barricade Team 2’s big sister, the adidas Barricade 7 in prime ink blue and red is the perfect example. Loaded with all the latest technologies and featuring a six month durability guarantee, the adidas Barricade 7 comes in at $119.95. Both shoes are miCoach compatible.
I’m rounding out my blog and saving the best for last with racquets. You can’t play tennis without a racquet, right?! Well, Wilson has lots of “more bang for your buck” racquets including the new Wilson BLX Envy coming in at $99.00. A lightweight racquet armed with some BLX technologies, this racquet is perfect for a beginner to intermediate player. When looking for a top notch racquet, the Wilson BLX Juice 100 is the perfect splurge. Top professional players Victoria Azarenka and Feliciano Lopez sport this racquet out on the stadium court. A powerful and maneuverable racquet, the Juice puts you back $189.00.
