1. L’Etoile Style Icon: Chris Evert

    With 18 Grand Slam singles titles, Chris Evert has earned her place in tennis history as one of the greatest athletes of all time. She’s also earned her place as a tennis style icon. Wearing everything from designs by Ted Tinling to diamond bracelets (that’s where tennis bracelet gets its name!) on the court, her style is one we’re still inspired by today. Here are some of our favorite looks.

  3. L’Etoile Style Icon: Lea Pericoli

    When it comes to tennis style, we owe a lot to Italian star Lea Pericoli and British designer Ted Tinling. Her looks were the source of so much buzz and excitement, they were often kept a secret until she stepped onto the court. "I became famous because of my clothes, not my playing,” she told the Sunday Mirror in 2001. Here’s a look back at some of Lea’s most iconic looks...

    Wimbledon, 1964

    At Wimbledon in 1964, Lea hit the grass wearing a fur trimmed mini dress. Since fur might not be the most practical summer tennis material today, try our equally chic Diamond Pointelle Dress

    Wimbledon, 1965

    Wearing a design by Ted Tinling, Lea’s rose covered mini skirt made headlines. Get the look with our feminine Diamond Pointelle Team Skort and matching top.
