Game Blue and Team Orange may be complete opposites on the color wheel but they make for a bold and beautiful collection in Nike‘s second fall release for women! With so many high performance pieces to choose from, we thought we’d help you hone in on which options would work best for you with our top 5 looks for fall!
If you’re lucky enough to be playing in cooler weather already, check out our first ensemble: the Advantage Printed Top, Capri Tight, and Tennis Sweater Jacket. The top features a body-conscious cut that’s flattering for all figure types while the geometric tone-on-tone print gives the otherwise simple shirt added style. This V-neck tee does offer UV protection as well, which is always a bonus! The compression-style capri pant in an ultra stretchy polyester/spandex blend that moves like a second skin and is designed with a low-profile waistband to prevent chafing or other skin irritation. The side ball pocket keeps your gear close at hand for uninterrupted play. Throw the knit hoody over the ensemble and you’re ready to leave your opponent singing the blues! All 3 pieces feature Dri-FIT fabrication that tackles moisture by wicking it away from your skin to the surface where it can evaporate, leaving you feeling fresh and dry even in the heat of battle.
For contemporary styling that brings a new energy to the court, you can’t go wrong with look #2: The Flouncy Knit Skirt, Stripe Pure Tank, and Maria Cadet Cap. The Flouncy Skirt and Pure Tank are two of our best-selling pieces because they allow for total freedom of movement plus allow you to show off your fun, feminine side. The skirt features a flat waistband for comfort plus keeps the skirt from shifting during play. The tank does not include a built-in bra, so you can customize your level of support, and it contours your shoulders beautifully for the ultimate in comfort – definitely a top you’ll want in every color! For a fun finishing touch, top the look off with the new Maria Cadet Cap that offers the same light weight and sweat-wicking system of the oh-so-popular Featherlight caps and visors that you love, but with a cool new shape.
Look #3 features the classic Baseline Half-Zip Top with Victory Printed Woven Shorts for those who want a bit more coverage without being completely covered up. The Victory Short is one of the newer pieces offered by Nike but has quickly become a wardrobe staple for many players thanks to its interior knit short for ball storage plus power mesh waistband that stretches to fit and enhances sweat management. The short also has open hand pockets and this particular addition to the line slims the silhouette with solid-colored panels along the sides. Pair this with the Baseline Half-Zip Top that is the go-to for comfort and performance. Lightweight with seams strategically placed to foster flexibility, this top is the perfect piece for layering or even wearing alone!
We would of course be remiss if we didn’t include the trendsetting styles of Maria Sharapova and Eugenie Bouchard! Sharapova will be sporting look #4 at the US Open: The (appropriately named) Premier Maria Day Tunic. The modern colorblocking has been pieced together so that even those of us who aren’t 6’2″ can still pull it off with confidence. Much like her previous tunics, this piece is designed to be both fashionable and functional with a power mesh backside that allows for air to flow freely and keep you cool plus elastic insets that enhance overall flexbility. And just like previous tunics, the Day Tunic comes with a coordinating long ball short for coverage so you don’t have to worry about putting on the wrong kind of show while on the court!
Bouchard has quickly become one to watch on the pro circuit and we’re sure her ensemble for the US Open is going to follow suit! Both pieces in look #5 are from the Premier Maria collection: the Premier Maria Tank and Premier Maria Skirt. The tank features unique straps that any fashionista would appreciate but are still cut in a way so as to not distract your during serious play by rubbing you the wrong way. Mesh insets where you need them most stop sweat in its tracks while the contrast-color stripe at the waist adds visual interest. The fabric of the skirt in accented by silver for a look that really lets you shine! A compression style ball short is included for comfort and coverage while the mesh waistband keeps the skirt put during play without adding weight and increasing unwanted sweat.
