I don't play, but I've always loved vintage tennis wear. Tis the season for the US Open, so let's have a look at some highlights of the women's tennis costume from the last century.
Not sure how these ladies maneuvered the court but they look lovely! Turn of the century.
A tennis date in 1910. Takes courting to a new level. (haha?)
These flappers have all the right accessories. 1920's.
I love this knit! I would wear it to work. Really. 1930's.
Jean Harlow glowing. 1930's.
Ginger Rogers. Adorable. You may notice that skirts lengths are getting shorter. 1940's.
Rita Hayworth in what we would now call a sundress. 1940's.
Mid-Century model. Prints! A variation from the typical white.
Short and mod! Very Courréges or Pierre Cardin. 1960's.
Too cute to sweat in. Fred Perry. 1960's.
What look is your favorite? Can you imagine playing in any of these looks?
