It’s time to take SPORT –LUXE to the next level. The ultimate trend is “TENNIS ATHLETIC”. You can’t say no to Tennis Athletic trend even if you don’t practice the sport because, was seen across several collections past spring edition, mostly in London Fashion Week and NY.
I love the way designers featured tennis styled skirts (some pleated) and all the color-trim jumpers color-blocking in red, white and blue. The trend looks fresh and youthful. I think was the perfect timing to give SPORTLUXE a new spin, after all tennis is one of chicest of sports?
I can’t stop myself getting surprised of how sportswear is changing fashion market. Even in the most elegant and formal collections like Chanel for example, are having a massive sporty influence and many brands presented pieces that were clearly designed for getting active in.
My dress Crush comes by the hand of Alexander Wang where knitwear lines cross the body like engineered sportswear. Perfection.

How to wear TENNIS ATHLETIC?
There is no rule about how to wear it but I would recommend to colorblock. Tennis is deeply linked with vintage designs. Some options you can’t fail could be:
-Try with pairing a color-blocking knit sweater, and tailored panneled skirt.
-Or even retro-inspired digital kaleidoscopic print or silk jumper to soft the outfit.
-I like playing with contrasts, black slides and quilted skirt will work with an all white look.
But don’t overdose your look, avoid sneakers or skater shoes. And wear your favorite heels to finish your look with a sophisticated and fab. vibe.
