It’s Fila fashion time! After reviewing all Serena Williams’ 2015 powerful Nike outfits, Garbine Muguruza’s Adidas by Stella McCartney styles and Agnieszka Radwanska’s absolutely extraordinary year with Lotto, it is my pleasure to make a collage of all Jelena Jankovic‘s dresses in the framework of my annual Fashion Retrospections.
JJ opened the season at the Brisbane International, wearing this lovely light green Fila dress with capturing subtle details.
At the Australian Open, the world No.21 WTA player went for the white Fila Platinum Dress with pink colorblocking details and contrast stitching.

Starting at Indian Wells, where she reached the final, followed by Miami and Charleston, and then later Strasbourg, Jankovic wore the pink Fila Spring Glow Dress, pairing it with the Fila Spring Glow 1/2 Zip Jacket, while in Rome the 30-year-old showcased the navy variant of the dress, whose colorblocks are green gecko.
At Roland Garros, as well as at two following grasscourt tournaments, JJ wore the Fila Goddess Dress in sunny lime, although at retail we’ve had available only the black and white versions. This item from the Goddess Collection is characteristic for its cute pleated hem and draping with side ruching.
At Wimbledon, Jankovic could have worn the white version of the above-mentioned Goddess Dress, but Fila created a new model, the Spring Lawn Dress, which is at first glance too simple, but when you look closer you notice the strategically placed line details that provide exceptionally figure-flattering design.
In Istanbul, Jankovic lost already in the first round to Urszula Radwanska, but in doubles she went all the way to the final, wearing the Fila Citrus Bright Dress.
The first title of the season JJ won in Nanchang, rocking the blue and lemon tank from the Spirit collection and its matching skort.
After wearing her Roland Garros dress in both Toronto and Cincinnati, at the US Open JJ promoted the teal piranha option of the Fila Fall Platinum Dress. That’s my favorite Fila dress of the season, as I really like this simple racerback and the flirty layered back skirt hem. Unfortunately, Jankovic played just one singles match at the tournament, although later in the season she did occasionally hop into the dress again, including for her successful singles final in Hong Kong.
At the upcoming Asian tournaments and in Luxembourg, JJ wore these black separates from the Platinum Collection, the Fila Fall Platinum Cami Tank, featuring colorblocking panels and adjustable criss-cross straps, and the Fila Fall Platinum Asymmetrical Skirt with side V-cutout.
Lastly, in Zhuhai, JJ presented the Fila Illusion Colorblock Tank, combining tones officially called peach poise, coral slope and castlerock, and the Fila Illusion Tie Skirt, which exists in solid castlerock and solid coral slope, but JJ opted for the colorful version of it.
What’s your comment on Jelena Jankovic’s 2015 when it comes to fashion? First I want to say that I’m actually surprised at the variety of outfits Jelena wore during the season, as I didn’t have an impression that she wore so many different styles. Also, I have to say that overall I think this was a successful year for Fila and I appreciate how they created very athletic designs that in all their simplicity managed to look feminine. No flowers, no lace, no overly girly features, but the cuts really flatter female body and are a perfect choice for players who like to look modern, embracing the less-is-more attitude. I really like all the outfits, except for the orange dress JJ wore in Istanbul. What do you say? (photos: Jimmie48, Getty Images/Clive Brunskill, Anadolu Agency, Alex Goodlett, Zhong Zhi)
