Superstar Venus Williams Eleven Tennis Clothing is featured at the French Open
Venus Williams has always been an example of strength, style, and determination on the tennis court. In the past five seasons she has also represented those traits on the runway with her own athletic line: EleVen. With a degree in Fashion Design and more than 20 years of professional player experience, Venus knows what looks good and works for you on the court.
Creating a perfect poly-spandex fabric blend for competitive tennis players was important to the brand, and EleVen is proud of what they have achieved in Space Dye. It provides quick-dry performance, breathable fabric, and UVA/UVB protection to keep you cool, fresh, and moving comfortably during the hottest days of summer. Every tank, tee, dress, and skort in the Eleven Women’s Geo Swirl French Open Collection uses this technology.
Let’s look at what pieces you can sport on the court this summer!
My favorite part of this collection is the spicy geometric print composed of orange, blue, green, and gray. It’s sure to turn heads at the club and EleVen has found many ways to integrate this print into the collection. We’ll start with the Raceday Tennis Tank, which shows off your strong back with thin racerback straps and a cutout at the center of your back. The tucks at the back and chest create a looser fit so you’re comfortable and unrestricted on the court. This is a gorgeous tank that’s sure to become your new favorite this summer!
The next top is perfect for more conservatively dressed players: the Ascend Relaxed Tennis Tee in Apricot. The scoop neckline and cap sleeves ensure your complete range of motion, while the ruffled dolphin hem provides modest coverage. The looser fit keeps you protected and comfortable, which is enhanced by the back pleats. That punch of style promotes a flirty and powerful look!
Maybe you’re the wild child of your club. Then you need the Flutter 12-Inch Tennis Skort in Geo Swirl Print. I just love this print and here, in a fully pleated skirt you can’t take your eyes off it! The flutter skirt is always popular in the Eleven line because the pleats emphasize your movements as you dash side to side and the attached undershorts keep you covered. You’re sure to stay comfortable and confident with the elastic waistband, also in Geo Swirl Print! Even if you don’t love bold prints, this functional and fun skirt is available in Frost Grey.
The Fly 14-Inch Tennis Skort in Apricot is a modern, sleek skirt that will step up your style during competition season this summer. The bold color and stylish angled slit create a fashion-forward look and you don’t even have to sacrifice function for it! This skirt features two front pockets to help you keep track of tennis balls and a zip-close pocket at the center back of the waistband so you never lose your keys again. The 14-Inch length, attached undershorts, and wide waistband provide a secure and modest fit. This skirt is also available in the shorter 13-Inch length in White, just in case your doubles partner is a little shorter than you!
Dresses are the easiest way to get a complete, competition-ready look and you’re going to love the French Open Tennis Dress in Geo Swirl Print. This dress combines classic and bold styles with a high neck and flutter hem to create a feminine silhouette. Four thin straps around the waist create a slimming effect and elongate your torso. I know you’ll feel like a pro if you start your outfit with this dress!
If you’re like me you like building perfect outfits, right down to the best bra! The Perfect Set Tennis Bra in Apricot coordinates with every color of top in the collection so you can mix and match. The split straps at the back are stylish and provide additional support, so you are comfortable during those extra long matches. I mean, not your matches. You always win in straight sets…! This bra features the poly-spandex Power Poly fabric blend to keep you comfortable with enhanced breathability, UV protection, and quick-dry properties.
This last accessory will help you complete your head-to-toe look. Tennis is exhausting and the summer is hot and sweaty. Being women, we have the additional challenge of keeping our hair out of our eyes so we can focus on the game. My favorite option is the headband and the Tennis Headband in Geo Swirl Print is bold and bright in a print that easily matches every piece in this collection. The non-slip strip helps keep the band in place. This headband features quick-dry performance, breathable fabric, and UVA/UVB protection to keep you cool and fresh during the hottest days of summer.
