Fashion Win: Tennis Whites

When faced with a tough opponent like a hot summer day, even the top fashionistas can wither under the pressure. Shorts, crop tops and flip-flops keep you cool when you're 20 but boardroom meetings and chic dinner dates call for a more winning combination. With the Rogers Cup in full swing this week, I'm thinking all about crisp, bright tennis whites. After all, if Maria Sharapova and Co. consistently beat the heat in white, I think we should all take some fashion lessons from the pros, don't you? 

White is always right in the middle of summer and while it goes with every colour under the sun, I love it best when worn on its own - white eyelet blouses with crisp white shorts are my fav summer uniform. But how do you avoid boring the crowd? Look for fun textures and details like eyelet, zippers, tone-on-tone print and lace to put you at the top of the fashion podium. Oh, and since every good athlete needs a lucky charm, might I suggest a Clorox Bleach Pen?
