To say that tennis outfits for women—referred to on TikTok as “tennis-core“—is a new fleeting aesthetic isn’t exactly accurate. Classic and timeless are perhaps better descriptors of the preppy-leaning style that has been a fashion fixture since the late 1800s.

That said, silhouettes related to the sport do tend to spike during the summer months when the warm weather encourages people to get outside, book a spot on the courts, and slip into a fitted polo and a pleated mini-skirt. This summer will be no exception—jumpstarted by Zendaya’s Challengers press tour outfits that had a very literal interpretation of courtside apparel: tennis ball Loewe heels, a Carolina Herrera gown as an homage to Venus and Serena Williams, and a Thom Browne tennis racket embroidered dress were all grand slams.

But even when the Challengers craze dies down, crisp tennis whites and breezy volley dresses are still great summer style options. Ahead, Marie Claire has curated a selection of tennis and tennis-inspired outfits from street style that work both on and off the court. Keep scrolling to find pairings you can sport this summer, the season following, and all those to come. Game, set, match.

This month begins the global cycle of graduate fashion showcases with designers from schools located in fashion capitals like New York or London often gaining the most press. This has forced program directors at regional schools to question if their students are losing out and has pushed some US institutions to stage their own graduate shows in September during New York Fashion Week. But it takes a village to pull it off successfully. Is it really worth the effort and expense?

The expense and effort of an NYFW graduate show

Ann Mariko Walter, Director NYC Fashion at Kent State University has been integral to the staging of the KSU fashion show during NYFW since 2022 and the logistics of ensuring the Ohio-based institution could participate last September involved coordination with multiple, even international, entities. Kent State University partnered with IFA Paris (International Academy of Fashion) to present selected graduate work from 20 designers across 40 looks at Lightbox NYC along with other organizational partners, the New York Film Academy and the Garment District Alliance. KSU is the only public school located outside NYC to stage a fashion show during New York Fashion Week.

“For us it was daunting but we loved the idea and just didn’t have the infrastructure and the people resources in New York to make it happen. All that’s in Ohio,” Walter told FashionUnited. “We really wanted a presence, a visibility, in New York City, the fashion capital of the United States and where all the other leading schools are located.”

KSU had already partnered with IFA for its first NYFW show in 2022, a smaller scale event that had proved successful. The Paris-based program led by Jean-Baptiste Andreani had similar goals to KSU but different strengths, according to Walter. “We have the presence, the relationships, the

Arianne Burback, designer of Garms 1 of 1, challenges the conventional notion that success is solely tied to obtaining a Master’s degree and working tirelessly. With a deep-rooted passion for creativity that stemmed from her early days of sewing for her dolls with her grandmother, Burback is determined to redefine success through alternative paths.

“Designing is what excites me. Inspiration is exhilarating,” Burback said. “Working in fashion design has been so fulfilling in so many ways, from waking up curious to see what I will create that day, to meeting the flourishing community of creatives in the western United States.”

Through her commitment to eco-conscious creations, she unveils her latest collection, inspired by the essence of Garms 1 of 1 and the individuality that each person embodies.

“My 16 look collection for Denver Fashion Week’s sustainability night is inspired by the end of my brand name, Garms 1 of 1,” she said. “Fashion is an expression of self, and being ‘1 of 1’ highlights the unique internal and external traits that each of us radiate.”

In recent days, a new controversy has arisen on social media centered around the Milan Fashion Week, which will close today. During one of the fashion week events, the singer Annalisa was captured sitting between two men who were both criticized on the web as they seemed to leave little space for Annalisa: the two sat with wide legs and between them Annalisa seemed to almost disappear. ‘Who are the two men at the fashion show with Annalisa?’ One of them was the well-known actor Michele Morrone, he was heavily criticized on the web even though during the show he and Annalisa exchanged many conversations, showing a cordial relationship. To clarify the situation was the artist herself, guest of Fiorello on Viva Rai 2. The singer explained: ‘I must say that Michele Morrone was very kind. He made room for me as much as he could, the bulk was there. But he was very kind. I know, it was more than anything else the fur that was getting in my eyes. But I would go on, sorry.’ As usual, Fiorello handled everything with great irony and Annalisa did the same, silencing the gossipers and inviting their respective fans to take a step back and stop this social war.

Milan Fashion Week always brings out the best that Italian clothing brands have to offer. Fall/Winter collections can often feel a bit heavy, but not in the fashion capital of the world, where autumnal outerwear and layers were given a luxurious makeover. From Prada’s modern takes on nostalgic silhouettes and Versace’s punk-rock glamour to Ferragamo’s aquatic-inspired dresses, there were countless looks to inspire your fall wardrobe. We’ve done the leg work and picked our favorite looks from Milan Fashion Week.

Alberta Ferretti

Bohemian glamour was alive and well at Alberta Ferretti’s fall collection of breezy gowns, rich outerwear, and ornately embellished pieces. Each piece recalled the styles of a bygone era but felt new with their luxurious fabrications. The look above seemed as if walked off the stage of a 1970s concert with its stunning sequins and bell-bottom pants.

Bally

Luxury brand Bally sent models down the runway with terrifically tailored pieces that combined a simplistic approach to design with its Swiss origins. Dubbed the “Der Wanderer,” the collection combined pragmatic pieces like blue button-down shirts, midi skirts, and LBDs with charming accessories like leather bags held with flowers, tops bursting with pins of adornments, and some models even carried actual cowbells that rang loudly as they marched down the runway.

Bottega Veneta

Designer Matthieu Blazy’s latest collection for Bottega Veneta will surely set hearts on fire this fall with its mind blowing craftsmanship and stunning silhouettes. This flaming red dress had us in awe as it sauntered down the runway with its fabric fringe waving about like the feathers of a phoenix.

Models walked through sprinkling snow for the show’s finale of its fall collection, twirling in delight in fun and flirty numbers, proving that the clothes bring charm no matter what the weather

At the men’s fashion shows In January, I was struck by the fact that Italy doesn’t have a deep bench of breakthrough brands. Unlike in New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, and even Los Angeles, Milan doesn’t have the fizzy energy of a scene led by inventive young designers. As I wrote at the time, the delightfully off-kilter label Magliano is among vanishingly few new menswear labels on the rise in the spiritual home of sprezzatura. At the Sunnei show on Friday at the women’s edition of Milan Fashion Week, I was reminded that the label’s designers Simone Rizzo and Loris Messina also deserve credit for bringing a badly-needed sense of newness to the schedule. And weirdness, in a good way, a word not normally associated with the menswear capital that I’m calling Milan’s surprise trend of the season.

(Because people keep asking why I’m back in Europe: an increasing number of designers are skipping the men’s schedule in January and June to present co-ed collections on the women’s circuit, which runs in February and September. I get it—it’s more modern and certainly more economical to hold two shows a year rather than four. But your staunch Show Notes correspondent is starting to wonder why he pays rent in NYC.)

Rizzo and Messina understand how to make noise for their growing brand, and Sunnei shows invite audience participation and exaggerate certain dimensions of the runway show. Last season, guests were given numbered paddles and encouraged to rate each look. I can be seen in about half of the sunnei“Vogue Runway collection

Julia Fox looked every inch the busty bombshell as she took to the catwalk for Paris Fashion Week on Monday.

The actress, 34, who is famed for briefly dating Kanye West in 2022, showed off her cleavage as she went braless in a plunging black vinyl dress for her turn down the runway at the Pressiat fashion show.

The star paired her racy ensemble with an oversize furry collar and platform heels.

Her violet tresses were styled in soft waves and she sported bold smoky eye make-up and pink lipstick.

Julia has lately been focusing on her modeling and making high-profile fashion show appearances, but her Hollywood career marches on.

Last year, she reunited with her No Sudden Move director Steven Soderbergh for the psychological thriller Presence, which was shot in just three weeks after getting a waiver to film amid the writers and actors strikes.

The film premiered last month at Sundance and has been acquired for distribution by the independent studio Neon. The studio previously distributed the Korean hit thriller Parasite, which was a surprise winner of Best Picture and multiple other Academy Awards.

London Fashion Week is in full swing, and models haven’t failed to surprise the fashion community by walking the runway in a series of bizarre looks – including torso cut-outs and barely-there crotchet dresses.

The event in the UK’s capital, which comes twice a year, commenced last Friday, and it has witnessed a selection of weird and wonderful creations on the catwalk.

Today, the spotlight is on womenswear label Di Petsa, established in London in 2019 by Greek designer Dimitra Petsa.

The relatively new brand has gained celebrity support, with Gigi Hadid, Doja Cat, Bella Hadid, and FKA Twigs all donning intricate designs.

But despite the influx of support from A-listers, the daring runway looks showcased today at BFC NEWGEN Show Space are likely to leave mouths wide open.

Womenswear fashion label Di Petsa showcased a range of weird and wonderful looks during London Fashion Week, including a dress with the material covering the torso removed to reveal an impregnated womb

Womenswear fashion label Di Petsa showcased a range of weird and wonderful looks during London Fashion Week, including a dress with the material covering the torso removed to reveal an impregnated womb 

One model sported a sheer cream dress with the torso cut out to reveal an impregnated womb.

The unique piece featured a diamond-encrusted headpiece which extended across the model’s eyes.

Di Petsa’s signature ‘wet look’ was encapsulated in the outfit’s material, as its shirred texture gave a fluid appearance.

The look symbolises ‘self-acceptance’ and ‘honouring of fluid state’, according to Dimitra’s website.

A uniquely creative make-up aesthetic was also included, with the model opting for an ethereal eyeshadow look with pink undertones.

Elsewhere, in an unusual occurrence, two models took the runway at the same time during Di Petsa’s show.

The models appeared to include an interpretative performance, whereby they embraced one another through their sheer mesh dresses in skin-coloured tones.

At one point, a model appeared to get on her knees while directly staring at the other.

Elsewhere during the show, a pair of models took to the runway at the BFC NEWGEN space in London with an interpretive act
