Studies show that a mother’s fitness and eating habits have a direct effect on a daughter’s fitness and eating habits. That may not be profound, but it is a reminder that underscores the importance of modeling good habits. (No pressure!) If your mini-me is going to mimic you, have some fun with it! Tennis is obviously at the top of our list of sports to share with the next generation, but whether you’re running, stretching, jumping, or even hula hooping together, the designers of your favorite tennis clothing have pieces to keep you both moving comfortably, no matter what your style!
Babolat’s cute Compete collection will have you #twinning, making your fellow tennis players do a double-take. Available in two different prints, the Compete Cap Sleeve Tennis Top for both mom and daughter is lightweight and constructed with sweat-wicking fabric, so you won’t be distracted or irritated by sweat while you play. The Compete Tennis Skort is available in colors that coordinate well with either top, and offers the same stretchy fabric, plus built-in shorties for modesty.
If your take on styles with prints and colors is “the more the merrier”, Lucky in Love has you both covered. These pieces are perfect for active ladies of all ages, and go seamlessly to your favorite hot spot for a post-workout lunch. The Hi Pleated Tennis Skort for Mom has a high waist for comfortable coverage, and a built-in shortie that fits like a glove for added support. What better to top such a vibrant piece than the Women’s V Neck Breeze Tennis Tank in Neon Yellow? More than just a cute top, this piece protects you from the elements with mesh inserts for functionality and UV 50+ Protection for some fierce hopscotch competitions. The Mesh Pleated Tennis Skort is as much of a showstopper as she is, with sheer mesh fabric in a tie-dye print, knife pleats for plenty of twirl power, and built-in shorties just like Mom’s. Keep the color going with the Girls Love Tie Knot Tennis Top that is uber cute and also uber comfortable. The crew neck and moisture management properties allow for freedom of movement, and the side knot lends an extra dash of sass.
Like to stock your closets with sleek black and white pieces that span the seasons? Build looks that are uniquely yours by mixing and matching across collections from designers like Eleven for Mom and Nike for Daughter. These timeless looks are made for bodies in motion! Both the Women’s Lucky in Love High Tennis Legging and Nike Girl’s Trophy Printed Tennis Tight are the ideal base for a unified look that is all about empowerment. For Mom, the Eleven Alight Tennis Tank Top is form-fitting and flattering, with four-way stretch fabric that moves like a second skin, a built-in shelf bra for support, and UPF 50+ for added protection against the sun. The Eleven Elite Tennis Jacket in white completes the look with stylized, shirred pockets that slim and lengthen the torso, thumb slits for functionality, and a poly/spandex fabric that stretches when you do, but snaps back to new in the wash. For daughters, the Nike Court Dry Tennis Top is the perfect complement to the Trophy Tennis Tight, with details like contoured side seams to keep from irritating skin, and a lightweight jersey fabric constructed from breathable polyester. The Nike Girl’s Half Zip Long Sleeve Running Top is the ultimate throw-on-and-go protection against the night air after a long day at play. Thumbholes and a longer back hem for extra coverage make this a fitness wardrobe must.
Don’t mind a little color, but like to keep the cuts of your clothing simple? Find your fashion Zen in cool colored training pieces from Fila. The Essentials Stretch Woven 4” Tennis Short for Mom has a contoured waistband for comfort while stretching and bending, and a zippered pocket for securing valuables. The shorts also offer a built-in brief for modesty and a drawcord waist for a personalized fit. The coordinating Movable Motion Heather Training Tank is all about comfort and coverage, with a snug fit, full back, and high scoop neckline, so you won’t be fighting your apparel during fitness routines like you sometimes do with the looser-cut clothing. The super soft, high performance fabric is a treat for your skin, and the silver reflective logo means you stay visible to others – even at night while training for a mommy and daughter marathon. For daughters, the Girl’s Double Layer Tennis Short and Full Back Tennis Top ensemble captures the same confident vibe as Mom’s look. The shorts sport a unique, loose outer short over a snug inner short, an elastic waistband, and premium plus jersey fabric that stretches with her every move. The top has a cut similar to Mom’s, plus contrast binding at the neck and armholes to prevent skin irritation, plus add a super subtle pop of pizzazz.
In addition to these great collections, you can both stay fit while playing it safe in face masks from Lucky in Love and Maskarabyhur. Masks for mommies and daughters come in a wide range of bright colors – and even silver! The one-size-fits-most masks are also available in prints that suit any personality, like tie-dye, emojis, and, of course, tennis-themed designs. And when planning your day with your partner-in-play, don’t forget the details like tennis shoes, caps, visors, headbands, and wristbands, sunglasses – all great opportunities to keep the twinning going! But most of all, don’t forget to simply enjoy the time you have together, and she’ll keep looking to you for guidance long after she’s your little girl.
