Game, Set, Match: Style A Tennis Skirt Beyond The Court

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 90s, 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.

The perfect skirt to transition from summer to fall, add a pair of tall ankle boots for a more polished feel. Reminiscent of my favorite 90's films, this look brings out the teenage spirit in me all over again. 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.

If you thought the dad sneaker trend was going away any time soon, it's here to stay. Borrowing these chunky sneakers from my grandpa's closet allowed me to complete this perfectly balanced sporty and flirty skirt look. Layered with a classic men's button-down, this look is one of my most comfortable to-date.

Dismantling The Myth Of Asexuality In Disability

The conversation about sex and intimacy often neglects the experiences of individuals with disabilities. Society's misguided notion that individuals with disabilities are devoid of desires for love, intimacy, and sexual fulfillment is not only preposterous but also damaging, but one disability activist is here to challenge that narrative.
