Stella McCartney's serving up some serious style! Just in time for Wimbledon, the sporty designer has unveiled her debut tennis collection, Adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade. The campaign for the Spring/Summer 2013 line, which fittingly features British tennis star Laura Robson (who will also wear the designs throughout the tournament), offers a fresh spin on tennis whites. Standout pieces include bright colorblock minidresses and contoured fit-and-flare skirts — all of which promise to give the courts, gym, and even street a fresh shot of fashion! Talk about "love."
Puma's Fitness Lux bag ($60) is for the girl who wants the practicality of a gym bag without sacrificing on style; its slouchy hobo style fools onlookers that she's more fashion than function. If she's more utilitarian in her look, pick out the adidas by Stella McCartney Plico bag ($112); the blue canvas material is so on point with the military trend. Maybe your gal pal is a bit flashier and likes to bring the bling? Then grab her the gold and black Nike Club bag ($70). Or, get back to basics with Puma's Fitness bag ($51). If it's lively you want, it's lively you get; the adidas Anya Day duffel ($45) has cartoons, anime, and video games written all over it.
If I had some serious cash to drop on workout gear, I'd buy something from Stella McCartney's new glow-in-the-dark range for Adidas. It's seriously hot! The jacket, shorts, and running shoes feature a bold glow-in-the-dark leopard print, which is a perfect example of fashion meeting function.
Stella tells Vogue UK:
"Running is one of our most popular categories and for me to make it have its own point of view is really key. I think that we did it this season in a direct way by looking at glow-in-the-dark. When you are running in an urban environment, you need to feel safe, when people can see you coming and stand out, especially in winter when it gets dark earlier. But at the same time we used it on a leopard print, so it's not so masculine and graphic."
The line is primarily made from breathable and weather-resistant polyester for the wearer's all-weather needs. Would you wear this line?

I am loving this Tennis Tank (originally $110, now $66) because it's wicking, it's long, and it's unique. Still not cheap, but definitely much cheaper than it was, that is for sure.
