Slone Stephens once said, “I like to stay cool and comfortable” – when responding to a question about her off-the-court apparel preferences. She also added, “If I’m going out, then I might wear a nice sundress or skirt.” All these also appear to somewhat hold when it comes to her on-court style.
Stephens is an accomplished professional tennis player. She captured the attention of the world back in 2013 when she reached the Australian Open semi-final after beating Serena Williams. Since then she has appeared in the French Open final and won the Grand Slam. The star athlete is also passionate about giving back to society and sponsors a variety of charitable causes through the Sloane Stephens Foundation.
Throughout her career, Stephens has been known for her impeccable sense of style on and off the court. In addition to rocking eye-catching tennis outfits on the court, Sloane has also collaborated with popular clothing brands to bring her designs to life.

A New Collaboration
At the beginning of the 2023 season, Stephens made the switch from Nike (which she had worked with since 2018) to Free People Movement, a U.S. apparel brand. All the athlete’s apparel collaborations would now be under the new partnership.
Speaking to Forbes, Stephens stated that she was pleased with how “Everyone is super collaborative and focused on the same goal” – when talking about the team at FP Movement. She also added, “not only are they interested in my feedback and experience, but they seek it out.”
In the same interview, Sloane explained that her focus was to ensure that her needs were met. She stated, “While fashion is certainly one major component, the pieces need to be functional so I can do my job.”
Stylish On-Court Outfits
Here are some of the most stylish outfits that Stephens has worn on the court since the commencement of her new apparel collaboration with FP Movement.
All White 2024 Brisbane International Outfit
At the tail end of 2023, Sloane posted several pictures on her Instagram of the look that she intended to dawn in 2024. In the photos, the tennis player is seen wearing ash playoff shorts, a white moon tank top, and a white half-face cap over her ponytail-styled hair. To bring the entire look together Stephens also wore white New Balance sneakers. The tennis player sported this look at the beginning of the year.
Colorful Outfits at The French Open
At the Roland Garros, Sloane took advantage of the clay court background to show off some of the stylish outfits she got from her new apparel partner. Simply put, the colorful kits were a big part of the show – even with Sloane’s awesome tennis-playing skills!
While the blue outfit appeared to be a fan favorite, given its pleasing appearance against the orange clay background, Sloane also rocked Barbie pink and dark green kits as well – demonstrating the variety on offer.
