We’re going snark-free for this week’s Fashion Face-off! No–wait! Don’t leave! We can still have fun. And we’ll be better people for it. I promise.
As much as I love a good snark, I saw two absolutely fantastic tennis outfits this week, both with floral skirts. They just knocked all the meanness out of me.
I adore this combination of colors that Ashleigh Barty is wearing. As we’ve covered in this space before, I am somewhat fashion-impaired. It just would never occur to me to match this purply, impressionistic skirt with the mint-green top. Somehow Barty manages to look both fresh and classic in this Fila ensemble–not an easy feat to pull off.Embed from Getty Images
Her face-off opponent is Dalila Jakupovic, a complete unknown to me, but, man, do I love this outfit. That deep, rich blue provides the perfect backdrop for the bold floral pattern on the skirt. Modern, clean, and classy! I’m not positive which clothing brand she’s wearing, but I think it’s Head.Embed from Getty Images
(Is Venus Williams largely responsible for this resurgence in florals and patterns in tennis clothing? It seems to me that her EleVen line was the first to expand modern tennis apparel beyond solids and stripes. But I could be wrong. Somebody weigh in on this in the comment section…)
Fear not. Snarking resumes next Friday.
