It’s no secret that we’ve seen a crossover between sports and fashion in recent years, with social media propelling fashion trends into the limelight via countless hashtags and highlight reels. Tenniscore has risen to fame as a preppy athleisure style that embraces the crisp white aesthetics and understated luxury of your favorite court sport.
We might not all have a pass to an exclusive country club, but we can certainly cosplay the leisurely lifestyle marked by freshly mowed lawns, court-side cocktails and servings of bagels.
With ourSweat Seamless Skort recently hitting the roster, we thought it was only right we gave you some tennis style outfit inspiration so that you can serve, on the court or not.
WHAT IS TENNISKORT?
If you asked us what tenniskort was five years ago, we might have been scratching our head over a response. But since the -core suffix has taken charge of any and every hint of a fashion movement over on TikTok, we now know to describe the trend as a style that follows tennis-inspired athletic designs, mixed with an element of preppy luxury.
Spearheaded by Princess Di in the 90’s, the sporty-yet-chic style has made a full comeback over the last few years as wellness and leisure has continued to inspire today’s now vital era of athleisure-wear.
Tenniskort at its finest is characterised by well-fitting silhouettes and quality neutral pallets that can be mixed and matched for a never-ending collection of clean and easy-to wear looks. Think pleated tennis skirts, preppy-polos, cable-knits, tiny skorts, oversized retro sweaters, and icy whites. The TikTok approved style embodies simplicity with a forever timeless appeal.
The tenniskort girl doesn’t necessarily set foot on a tennis court, but she reworks the elegance of a simple tennis outfit into her everyday wardrobe. Whether that’s off to brunch with friends, trying out a new fusion class at the local studio, or sporting a tennis-inspired runway look on a warm vacation, tenniskort serves boundless versatility.
Our reinterpretation of the tenniskort trend sees clean lines in replacement of classic pleats, gym-friendly features like sweat-wicking fabrications and technical features to enhance your performance, and workout wardrobe - a cap with a cut-out for your ponytail anyone?
SWEAT SEAMLESS SKORT
The Sweat Seamless Skort embodies the tennis aesthetic, and builds on the success of our first-ever dress this year as we continue to lean into the feminine-athleisure styling. With built-in shorts and a sleek, seamless silhouette, enhanced with DYNMC™️ fabric to heighten breathability, the skort offers a functional play on the classic pleated tennis skirt. So whether you’re picking up a racquet or not, you can channel the on-court aesthetic in style.
COLLEGIATE OVERSIZED HOODIE TEAL
Nothing says Lady-Di inspired tenniscore like an oversized collegiate hoodie with a vintage flair. Paired with a pair of cycling shorts, it’s an iconic look we’re all familiar with, often sported by Hailey Bieber who finds inspiration from the royal’s off-duty style. Comfy and practical, collegiate graphics are the hallmark of athleisure attire. It’s the perfect piece for those who prefer the sportier elements of the preppy style, and can be worn as a pump cover, or as a rest day essential.
COTTON RIB MINI TANK
The making of a tennis-style outfit is all in the bright whites. Although other colors are seen in tennis attire, like forest greens, navy, red and black, white is truly the foundation of tennis attire. A simple white cotton tank in that case is essential to building your tenniscore wardrobe, as the styling and layering options are endless.
STRAPPY CROP CAMI TANK
With the rise of the “clean-girl” aesthetic, sports-luxe has become popularized as an effortlessly chic, yet cool approach to athleisure styling. Clean lines, and minimal designs are synonymous with the aesthetic, which finds parallels with tenniscore styling. The Strappy Crop Cami Tank is a staple piece for creating paired-back tennis outfits, with strappy back detailing and an easy-to-style design, it offers the perfect match to the Sweat Seamless Skort.
