With tennis being one of the few socially-distanced sporting alternatives this summer, it's no surprise the tennis skirt is the latest athleisure trend feeding our need for comfy-cute transitional activewear. Once popular in the 90's, this skirt is one trend re-emerging in 2020 with a modern yet sleek and sporty design, making it a solid choice for girls on the go on-and-off the court. Complete with fitted shorts underneath and flexible lightweight fabric, this skirt style allows for more activity and comfortability throughout the day. Known for its all-around pleats, the tennis skirt can also be designed as a fitted mid-waist style, hugging curves in all the right places along with an elastic waistband.

Whether you're into pleats or decide to take a fitted approach, here are three outfit ideas that go above and beyond the tennis court.

Although accessorized with a chunky necklace, wrap-around sweater, and a pop of zebra print to elevate this look, overall, it's the one-armed turtleneck for me.
