For seven years already off-season has traditionally been the period when I do overviews of apparel of WTA fashion leaders. This year I opened the retrospectives with Nike's Eugenie Bouchard and now I'll give you a collage of photos of Adidas's designs, in particular their Adizero line, on the example of the line's long-time top representative — Ana Ivanovic.
The 2014 season was Ivanovic's most prolific one when it comes to the number of titles, as she won four and her first one came right away at her first tournament of the year in Auckland. The Serb beat Venus Williams in the final and lifted the trophy in the dress with graphic print on chest she had worn at a lot of events finalizing 2013.
The blue and orange Adidas Adizero design introduced at the Australian Open accompanied Ana all the way into the grasscourt season and even though we often crave for Adidas to offer us something new, this dress is so spectacular that I can't blame Adidas for promoting it that long. The blue masterpiece, also worn by Daniela Hantuchova, features a microweb design on back, and overall has just enough points of interest to make it innovative and glamorous for big stages, while keeping it simple and wearable for us ordinary folks. The item is officially called the Adidas Spring Adizero Dress and is actually on a super sale now at Tennis Warehouse!
In Miami Ana wore a cute black skort with black and purple tanks.

Navy is always perfect choice for the red clay of Roland Garros and the addition of orange details makes Ivanovic's French Open Adidas Adizero dress a memorable piece even though she wore it only briefly. Look at the back of the dress (obviously, in the photo is Kristina Mladenovic, not Ana), isn't it phenomenal? The matching shoes were also lovely! The dress existed in yellow as well.
The white dress Ivanovic wore at Wimbledon was awkwardly not available at retail, although you could buy the same style in separates.
The world No.5 finalized the year in the Adidas Fall Adizero Dress, available in pink and black. The back keyhole cutouts add a lovely subtle touch to the otherwise classic design. The pink version of the dress perfectly goes with Ana's Adidas Adizero CC Tempaia III pink shoes which are also still available and discounted.
The Serb paired the black version of the dress with the Adidas Adizero CC Tempaia III shoes in the refreshing mint, also currently discounted at Tennis Warehouse.
For years Adidas has been my favorite famous tennis clothing brand and in 2014 it has reinforced its position, despite the small number of designs they launch per year, unlike Nike for example. All Ivanovic's outfits this year were beautiful and if I have to pick my No.1 choice it would be the wonderful navy Roland Garros dress, while the second place would go to her blue Australian Open dress.
