The Nike Promo Maria Oz Tennis Dress is one of my favorite Nike dresses to date. It is sleek and structured with a cut-out at the back for a feminine, original Maria look. A bold color looks great against a variety of skin tones and will grab your friends’ attention so you can take center stage as you play. Its T-strap back runs down your spine, leaving your shoulders free for movement. It has a built-in padded bra to give you the full effect of its open back and feel secure and supported. Don’t worry about having an off day, because even if you aren’t playing great tennis, you will definitely win best-dressed!

The adidas Stella McCartney Barricade Tennis Dress is an easy way to wow your fellow tennis friends and opponents. With minty green floral print on the top and bottom part of the dress, plus pleats all around the skort, you will feel fun and flirty. While the print may be playful, its high neckline and fitted top accentuate your figure to give you a sophisticated, form-flattering silhouette. A keyhole back adds extra ventilation so you can feel the breeze against your skin as you play. Caroline Wozniaki will be rocking this dress at the 2015 Australian Open. Get it and black and white as well!

Another one of our favorites this season is the FILA Women’s Collezione Tennis Dress. We can’t get enough of it in the honeydew color! It looks great against a wide variety of skin tones, and can make any piece of clothing look high-end and fashion forward. Lace inserts at the neckline, waistline, and hem add a feminine touch and create a silhouette that is pleasing to the eye. Stylish Serbian Jelena Jankovic can be seen sporting this dress!
Wear the color of royalty in the ASICS Racquet Tennis Dress. This drop waist dress is a great way to show off your curves without feeling uncomfortable. It is fitted up top and has pleats all around the skort so you will sport a classic tennis look while feeling modern and feminine at the same time. Its racerback design gives it a tank top illusion so you won’t have to sacrifice comfort or freedom of movement when you decide to spruce things up with a dress! Match it with a pair of fan favorite ASICS shoes to complete your look.

Lacoste is known for making high-end apparel, and their Women’s Sleeveless Tech Strap Tennis Dress is no exception. Worn by WTA pro Dominika Cibulkova, this dress has a simple, classic design so you won’t be held back by seasons: wear it year round! Color contrast straps cross in the back so you get a snug fit in stylish form. Don’t forget the signature Lacoste crocodile on the left chest.
Last but not least is the fashion forward Denise Cronwall Women’s Tennis Dress from the Golden Blossom Collection. I have no doubt that it will be a big hit in any tennis setting. This sleek, modern, and sophisticated dress features a high-neckline with beautiful floral yokes at the front and back. Detailed golden piping binding along the hem add to its intricate design. This dress is semi-fitted and will hang off your body slightly, allowing it to look great on a wide range of women and body types.
