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.

Tennis Skirt With Boots

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.

Tennis Skirt With Sneakers

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.

How A Couple That Never Spoke On The Phone Answered Marriage’s Call

How We Met is a series where xoNecole talks love and relationships with real-life couples. We learn how they met, how like turned into love, and how they make their love work.

As I move through life and experience different highs and lows, one thing that has become increasingly clear is the importance of self-love and self-worth. Now, I’m not saying it’s always easy, but I do feel like if it’s in a good place, people experience life more fully. And when it comes to love, my friend Amanda Wicks and her husband, Will Ford, are the perfect example.

Amanda may not remember this, but years ago, on one of her many visits back to Atlanta (we both went to Clark Atlanta University), she sat across from me at a dinner table and declared she was done looking for love. She was happy with who she was, and while she still desired it, it was no longer something she was chasing. “If it happens, it happens,” she said. The statement was so bold it made me quickly reroute our usual dating story catch-ups and awkwardly move to a different topic.
