Apparel: A New Level of Style for Spring
From vibrant, splashy stripes and details to shades of ‘Mad Men,’ Spring ushers in variety, texture and style.
Adidas never disappoints with Stella McCartney’s blooming Barricade dress ($120). As Caroline Wozniacki’s outfit of choice, the soft blue floral design flows with a flouncy volant toward the bottom of the pleated skirt. The back cutout adds another fashion detail as well as ventilation and breathability.
Antigua’s Chip dress ($65) sports Desert Dry moisture-wicking material in a jumper with contrasting cover-stitch detail and a pleated skirt. The built-in bra and poly/spandex contrast mesh side and back insets make this a functional chic addition to your net game. Comes in black, navy, red and white combinations.
The sophisticated and suave shadows of ‘Mad Men’ rule as Fila’s Suit Up men’s collection goes from the courts to a business lunch. Serving up a herringbone and chevron pattern, the Suit Up jacket ($120) is a white and black two-tone herringbone in a poly-suede jersey with rib-striped cuffs, collar and bottom and silver F-Box logo.
Jamie Sadock always makes a statement with her distinctive designs and textural details. A soft pink skort with black trim comes together with deco pattern tank in pinks, black and gray. Featured in moisture-wicking Cooltrex with a sun shield of UPF30, the pieces range from $70 to $120.
LUCKY IN LOVE
Lucky in Love’s print skirt collection reflects a striking mix of engineered stripes overlaying landscapes of color. Here the Horizon Scallop Skirt is paired with their versatile best-selling V-neck racer-back tank with built-in shelf bra ($TK).
Bolle attacks the net with a youthful, edgy Performance group, “Shades of Grey,” on a background of black underneath a marled black and gray fabrication accented with citrus green. Reflective stripes make bold accents and statements throughout the pieces. Tops: $60-68; skirts: $60-64; jacket: $90.
Tail’s drop-waist Talia dress ($75) is comfy and stylish in bold blue with yellow adjustable straps. The slight V-neck and ruching at the center chest offer up a nice twist for match play. This poly/spandex blend is part of Tail’s core performance jersey fabrication.
