14 tennis skirts to wear whether you’re on or off the court.
Tennis Skirts & Skorts
While athleisure has been on the rise for quite some time, it’s tennis that’s getting a lot of airtime as of late.
While you might dive in, headfirst, with a preppy wardrobe from tip-to-toe, it’s the skirts that you really want to shop first, right? Is the best part about a tennis skirt for everyday wear, though? It can look chic as ever and not have to check all of the courtside boxes.
While there are many tennis skirts under the performance category that are among our favorites (see below!), many are decidedly not white, and may or may not boast a wardrobe malfunction-proof skort silhouette.
In fact, there’s even a denim style thrown into the mix that you’re likely going to love.
Ahead, shop all the best tennis skirts for fall to feel like you belong at the US Open, even if you’ve never played a game in your life. It’s the sporty, flirty, and fun-loving wardrobe essential for fall that you didn’t know you needed…and likely now can’t live without. Happy shopping!
