Ever wonder when "tennis whites" became "tennis apparel"? If the following article is any indication it was sometime around 1977.

Fashions Are Scoring With Tennis Set

At one time, only white clothes with perhaps a touch of color trim were, allowed on tennis courts. Now, thanks in part to television, any and all colors can be seen on public and private tennis courts from Beverly Hill to Wimbledon. At the urging of television camera people, professional tennis stars exchanged their traditional whites for pastels and eventually, deeper colors. White does not photograph well for either black and white or color television cameras. Thus, the tradition of tennis whites ended as recreational players adopted the colors of professional players.

Tennis clothes today span the color spectrum from pale pastels to bright reds and oranges for both men's and women's styles. Although many tennis players still wear white, their clothes are usually accented with bright colors, stripes and even checks.

Top designers in both women's and men's fashions have created tennis clothes for the ready-to-wear market. Noted tennis professionals such as Jimmy Connors and Rosie Casals have endorsed tennis wear, along with entertainment personalities who are also good tennis players. Warm-up suits which cover tennis clothes are also designed in various colors with bold stripes and patches. Warm-ups can be worn for jogging and other activities, along with tennis.

Tennis sweaters are coordinated with tennis clothes by some designers to give players a complete fashion ensemble. Many women prefer the one-piece tennis dress now available in halter styles, in addition to more conventional scoop neck and V-neck styles. Several manufacturers of tennis clothes are offering women mix-and-match separates which include tops, skirts, shorts and sweaters in coordinated colors.

 Dressing for tennis may even be as much fun as the game, now that such a great variety of styles is available. And, best of all, most of the tennis clothes are made from cotton blended with synthetic fabrics which wash easily and require little, if any ironing!  Economist Newspapers Wednesday, March 16, 1977
