One of the best things about L’Etoile Sport pieces is that they are designed to work both on and off the court. From lunch to a heated game, a late afternoon match to cocktails, our flirty skirts, feminine tops, and sleek dresses are made to go everywhere.
The key to wearing our pieces in different settings are great accessories. The right accents will take you anywhere. All it takes is swapping tennis sneakers for sandals, trading a tennis bag for a summer tote, and throwing on a blazer.
Our Lace Tennis Dress (recently seen on Mrs. Charlotte York Goldenblatt herself on an episode of And Just Like That…!) is one of the easiest pieces to style for whatever your day has in store — be it a few rounds of doubles or a stroll along the sea. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite ways to accessorize the dress for a chic and comfortable look both on-and-off the court.
On the Court
Tennis Sneakers The perfect tennis sneaker should be tailored to your foot and playing style. Different shoes offer different benefits, but you can never go wrong with all-white kicks (just in case you end up at Wimbledon!). The streamlined design of these NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor Pros — which are great for hard courts and clay alike — make them a versatile fit for all of your tennis looks.
Racquet Bag A chic tennis bag is the perfect accessory and we are loving this cute floral version from Neely and Chloe Burch’s accessory line Neely & Chloe. Made from practical neoprene, the cheery print brightens up any courtside. A well-designed strap, lets you carry it on your back when you are on the go.
Face Sunscreen On or off the court, a travel-size face sunscreen is a year-round essential. Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen is an all-time favorite: it feels like putting on plumped-up air. The scentless, weightless, invisible sunscreen leaves hardly a trace — just a pleasant, velvety finish. Plus, SPF 40 is a must.
L’Etoile Sport Visor Keep your head in the game and the sun out of your eyes with our Perforated Leather Visor. Our all-white version, subtly embossed with the L’Etoile Sport logo, and is easy to match to all of your tennis outfits. Pretty and practical.
Off the Court
Sandals After hitting a few sets, the last thing you want to do is strangle your tired feet into strappy sandals. These chic slip-ons from Dune London are perfect for walking through town or grabbing lunch at the club. We love them for their nod to Hermès’ classic design — but without the designer price tag.
Summer Bag A raffia beach bag is summer’s most faithful companion — that is, until it fills with sand, or your lipstick falls out of a small rip. This Hat Attack tote is a practical update on the classic straw bag, boasting a drawstring canvas lining to keep your essentials organized and safe from sun and sand. We also love the luxe leather straps. It’s the perfect mid-range size; not quite Jacquemus-level, but still large enough to hold all of your summer essentials — tennis balls included, of course.
Sunglasses Add a pop of color to your tennis whites with these fabulous orange sunnies from Loewe. The oversized round frames are just the right amount of playful, with a glossy finish and a gold accent. They’re sculptural and a bit sultry — truly the perfect summer statement piece, and they pair perfectly with the neon trim in our Lace Dress!
Jacket We love Veronica Beard’s feminine and versatile style so much we collaborated with the brand on a L’Etoile X Veronica Beard tennis collection this season. VB is known for their tailored jackets and any of their blazers would rev up any of our tennis skirts or dresses. This Scuba Jacket is tailored and modern at once and takes our tennis dress from sporty to sleek. And bonus accessory, the L’Etoile x VB turtleneck lace dickey pairs with our lace tennis dress perfectly. Add sandals for evening or sneakers for running around during the day.
