In the comforting words of the Duchess of Cambridge: “We will be back again, and it will have been worth the wait.” While there is no doubt that the return to Wimbledon will be worth the wait, we don’t have to wait for the Wimbledon tennis whites the players would have worn this year – they’re in stock and ready for you to rock right now!
Nike pro players such as Sloane Stephens, Petra Kvitova and Bianca Andreescu were set to wear the Nike Women’s London Team Court Dry Slam Tank and the new London Team Court Slam Skort during play. The tank is a classic cut, but it’s been made modern with subtle shiny and matte striations on both front and back, as well as strategically placed mesh panels incorporated into the design on the sides. The coordinating skort is an updated classic, too, with side pleats that give the skort extra stretch for freedom of movement. The nylon fabric is a break from tradition that makes the piece nearly weightless and cool against your skin, even in the heat of the game. Unlike the popular Paris Team Court Slam Skort released for Roland Garros, the London Slam Skort is simpler in cut and color options, so it will serve you well for many seasons to come. And, of course, it does come in both the standard length of just under 12” and the longer 14” for the taller tennis player, or for anyone simply seeking additional length.
The tank also works well with the new London Team Court Pant, so you can mix and match to suit your personal style. Though they may have been designed to keep the Nike players comfortable while off the court in London, these pants are so well designed, you’ll want to wear them everywhere! Details like a drawcord for a customized fit and zippered ankles for easy on-off make them the new go-to pants for athletes and athleisure-wear alike. The pants sport zippered pockets, which are great for holding your keys, to-do list, cell – or, of course, extra tennis balls! Wherever you choose to wear them, the Nike London Team Jacket tops it all off nicely, complete with roomy raglan sleeves that don’t restrict you, and its own mesh panels for keeping you protected, but not overheated.
The Nike Court Dry Tennis Dress is what defending champ Simona Halep would have donned in London. You’ll want this dress in every color – it’s just that comfortable. It’s cut so it won’t rub you the wrong way while you’re serving and swinging, or otherwise distract you during your game. The fitted bodice, flared skirt, and thin straps recall dresses worn by professional skaters whose routines also demand coverage without compromising movement.
Maria Sharapova may have retired from the professional courts, but she still collaborates with Nike on styles that help you bring your A game in sophisticated styles, like the Maria London Court Dress. The slim silhouette and design details of this dress are akin to those in some of your favorite dresses for work: soft pleats, a faux-wrap look, and a flattering fit. Sporty elements like mesh panels, a back cutout, and ultra stretch fabric with sweat-wicking capabilities make this piece all about play.
If an all-white look is not your taste, you’re in luck! All of the pieces mentioned above come in black as well, and the tank also comes in Nike’s new fall colors, like Rush Violet and Guava Ice. You can also add a pop of colorful personality with your accessories, and Nike makes it easy with a wide range of options from head to toe, including everything from head wear to outerwear to socks. Have you updated your tennis shoes this year? If not, you’re due! Keep your feet and joints healthy with updated tennies from Nike.
