Court Short

Anna Kournikova. Maria Sharapova. Ana Ivanovic. Severine Bremond. Maria Kirilenko. I know it’s not my imagination. It’s as if being ruggedly beautiful is a prerequisite for being a professional female tennis player. Each one comes packaged with an exotic name, sassily tousled hair, and amazing skills both on the court and in front of the camera where they take up modeling on the side. Sadly, I have no skills on the court that I know of, and no, I don’t possess a name that rolls off the tongue in a saucy manner. What I do have, however, is a penchant for falling in love with sportswear, and what I’m yearning for at present is the Nike Smash Pleated Women’s Tennis Skirt.

Oh darlings, I’m well-aware of the fact that this is a skirt meant for the court, the fact that it’s crafted of Dri-Fit polyester and spandex is indicative reality of this enough. But I’m sorry I clearly can’t resist the fashion factor of this court short.

The pleated bottom adds just the right amount of flair I search for in a flippy skirt; the bright, punchy pastel colors – China Rose and Glass Blue serving as my favorites – seemingly have the power to awaken more neutral toned ensembles; and the spandex material ensures that you’ll be able to twist and shout without any hesitation. Not to mention there’s the added sporty bonus of internal shorts that are hidden within, so you’ll never have to worry about Marilyn Monroe moments while freely shopping along Fifth Avenue.

Now, if only my purchase of this pretty would ensure talent and effortless loveliness alike, I would buy hundreds upon hundreds of them. At least I am sure of one thing, it is bound to bring a newfound beauty to my wardrobe!

Fashionably yours!

Thanks to Nike for the pictures.

Adorable! I'd wear it off the court with a tank for a cute athletic look.

These skirts are so cute! It makes me want to buy one and go play some tennis! Even though I'm terrible at basically all sports. Haha!

I love tennis style! I posted about Wimbledon clothes last year and also did a "How to dress tennis chic for summer" post, here... http://fashion-by-student.blogspot.com/2009/06/summer-dressing-tennis-chic.html

These are gorgeous! I actually used to play tennis, but never had a skirt this cute. I think they only started making more fashionable sports stuff in the last few years. These alone are a reason to start taking up the sport again!

Ahh, I wish I could play tennis well! These would be amazing to wear on the court ... maybe I could wear them while playing soccer or volleyball? LOL. Cute finds, though!


Now if I played tennis, perhaps I would opt for these.

But on the topic of athletic wear, I loooove dancewear! And not simply because I'm a dancer!
