Daring on the Court Fashions!

Tennis season is currently in full swing… Pun intended. Tennis champion Venus Williams has gotten a ton of criticism for a few of her on the court looks.

I played tennis in High School and College, and yes tennis outfits tend to lean towards the overly preppy or frumpy. So I can understand the Williams’ sisters desire to mix it up and show their personal style on the court. Recently Venus’ French Open outfits have raised some eyebrows, “It’s really about the illusion, like, you can wear lace, but what’s the point of wearing lace when there’s just black under? The illusion of just having bare skin is definitely, for me, a lot more beautiful” said Venus.

This criticism made me play a bit a devils advocate. Yes sports and games such as tennis and golf, tend to be more conservative and uniform, but haven’t we seen evolution of uniforms in all sports? Granted I probably would have opted for black shorts in the lacy number pictured below, but by all means she is sexy and modernizing a traditional uniform as she has done over and over again in the past.

Well, if you are not ready to take lace on the court just yet, I found a few more fashion forward looks for you to play with.
