If your T-shirt is drenched in sweat and your cotton shorts are irritating your skin by the end of a tennis lesson, you may not be looking forward to your next time on the court. But don’t let your clothes drag you down the moment you start to play! Check out our picks for some smashing shorts, shirts and other gear on today’s Friday Finds.
Best Skirt: Pace Setter Skirt, $58 at Lululemon
This multipurpose Lululemon skirt is perfect for playing tennis, going for a run or doing errands around town. The stretch fabric is sweat resistant and back venting adds extra breathability. Not only does it have built-in shorts, but two gel pockets, just right for storing snacks or an mp3 player. The preppy stripes and back ruffles give this sporty skirt some fashionable flair.
Best men’s shorts: Nike Epic Shorts, $24.99 – $30 at Dick’s Sporting Goods
These Nike shorts give you comfort and breathability whether at the gym or on the court. Mesh paneling on the sides lets in air flow and the elastic waistband allows movement and flexibility. Plus, they come in 12 different bold colors like the electric lime and tangerine hues pictured above.
Best women’s shirt: Adidas Adizero Tennis Tank Top, $15.97 – $24.97 at SportsAuthority
This stylish racerback is designed for tennis practices or training under the sun. Moisture-transfer fabric and a mesh back with punch holes allows sweat to evaporate quickly, while the contoured fit moves as you move. The bright yellow top is a fun and fresh look whether wearing it for competitive play or hitting with friends.
Best men’s shirt: Adidas Barricade Semi-Fit Tee, $39 at HolabirdSports
Despite the slim fit of this Adidas top, the shirt’s moisture-wicking fabric allows air to circulate close to the skin, regulating body temperature. Flat seams alleviate chafing as you move and the fabric also provides UVA protection to areas covered. The Barricade’s heat-control technology along with its bold, blue stripe and trendy cut will make you feel cool on the court.
Best dress: Bob & Weave Active Dress, $29.99 at Athleta
This lightweight dress is made with material that wicks and dries as you sweat, plus it gives you UPF 50+ protection to handle those harmful rays. A mesh insert also provides under-bust ventilation. The dove gray top is a twist on the classic white dress and the aquamarine lining shows you have an eye for detail.
