Even though we're only a few days into this year's U.S. Open, there are already lots of new tennis outfits we've got our eyes on. Some of this season's most sizzling street-ready trends have already made on-court appearances—like neons hues, flared minis, and delicate pastels.
So for this summer's final weekend, look to the pristine polos and pleated skirts of fashion's favorite sport (Anna Wintour
is a regular player and spectator herself) with these tennis-inspired looks.Serena Williams' Neon and Pleats:
With a Nike collaboration and an eponymous clothing line under belt, Serena Williams is no stranger to fashion. The tennis star, known for eye-catching on-court getups, chose this eye-catching combo for an early match in the tournament. Left to right: T by Alexander Wang Pleated Stretch Mini Skirt, $230.

For Labor Day, why not try for a teal pleated flared skirt like this T by Alexander Wang
one, left. It's short and dark blue—just like Williams', but can also be worn well into fall (win!). To incorporate neon, tuck in a highlighter yellow striped tank, like this one from Forever 21
. If you really want to dress like a champion, pick up an American Apparel nylon yellow stretch headband
to fasten around your weekend pony. American Apparel Nylon Tricot Headband, $9.50. AmericanApparel.comMaria Sharapova and Venus Williams' Pretty Pastels:
It's no wonder Maria Sharapova
and Venus Williams
look so well-dressed on the court—Williams has her own sportswear line that she'll be showing at New York Fashion Week
, and Sharapova has fronted campaigns for brands such as Cole Haan (plus, she always looks pitch-perfect on press tours). Floral Cutout Back Shift Dress, $22.80. Forever21.com; ASOS Swing Dress with Triple Layer, $51.09.
For Williams' floral shift, pick up a dark pink dress with a straight cut. You'll want one with a graphic floral print too, like this Forever 21 floral cutout back shift dress
. To achieve Sharapova's look, slip on a structured, lavender shift, preferably one with architectural lines, like this ASOS swing dress. Dominika Cibulkova's Polo Dress:
Dominika Cibulkova, a Slovakian tennis player, instantly caught our eye in her prep-perfect Lacoste
dress. L!VE Short Sleeve Stretch Pique Polo Dress, $110. Lacoste.com; Ash Canvas Thelma Wedge Sneaker, $160. UrbanOutfitters.com
There's no better way to finish the summer strong than in a clean and classic shirt dress. L!VE's short sleeve stretch pique tipped polo dress
is just what the long weekend ordered. Edge it up a little bit with ASH's white sneaker wedges
, as opposed to the run-of-the-mill white Keds.
