If you’re actually playing tennis then we’ve found you some essentials, so you can step onto the court feeling stylish, as well as practical. With Emma Raducanu (we wish she was playing at the tournament this year!) and the Princess of Wales the ultimate inspiration, sleek sporty separates and dresses will give you the style upper hand.
But for those spontaneous tennis dates that need a not-so-spontaneous outfit (all the gear, no idea anyone?), we’ve also got you covered.
If fashion points are more on your agenda than fitness, then off-the-court outfits might be more your game… set, match – there’s plenty of tennis inspired co-ords that’ll look just as good on a weekend than for a work-out.
It’s the best of summer’s preppy style, where athleisure meets retro looks that can be easily styled into everyday outfits. Think polo tops and your latest tailored trousers to wear to the office. Or an oversized knit with a pleated skort or white jeans.
White skirts are a sporty summer go-to and fit the tennis aesthetic. Match with a white crop top, tank or body, or for a more low-key look switch to a slouchy sweatshirt. If you’re rebelling against the Wimbledon dress code and going for a coloured skirt, make it pleated.
Retro white dresses
Keep it retro with a pleated tennis dress or try a figure-hugging style when the weather hots up.
Get a brunch booked in for after this tennis match. These sporty co-ords will work just as well on as off the court.
Preppy polo tops
The ultimate athleisure piece for every wardrobe, a retro sweatshirt will be useful all year round. From watching the Wimbledon final and the best dressed guests of all time from the comfort of home, to layering under a blazer for wearing to the pub.
No tennis look is complete without a pair of white trainers, and these retro styles will make your preppy outfit top of its game.
If you’re actually playing tennis
Finally, if you’re actually prepared to get your sweat on, then you’ll be needing some performance pieces that’ll serve your tennis, and style, needs from that first point to the end of the match.
