Over the years, tennis has continued to evolve and change in various ways (including the birth of lawn tennis in the 19th century), its popularity waxing and waning at times, but ultimately coming back into vogue in a big way amongst the Victorians, where again it was often a favourite sport of the moneyed classes. However, it was no longer seen as being quite as exclusively a game for the wealthy as it had been in generations past. Just as the game itself evolved over time, so too (in keeping with the fashions of the day) did the clothing that one wore on the court. As tennis was (and still is) often played outside, and always involves a great deal of back and forth movement, restrictive clothing - for either sexes - made it hard to play successfully, and an unofficial uniform, typically of white or light coloured fabrics, of sorts began to develop for both men and women.
