2020’s Grand Slams may be off this summer, but that doesn’t have to spell game set and match for your tennis fashion.
As a lockdown-permitted pursuit, if a tennis match is on the cards, make sure your outfit is as on-point. And a tennis skort is this year’s must-have garment – something that doesn’t have to be limited just to the court either. Yes, if your pins are in shape, you can wear the skort as part of your summer wardrobe. Paired with a crisp white shirt, funky tee or slouchy hoodie, they cover all your bits and keep your modesty intact. They are surprisingly flattering too.
These are the tennis skorts we’re loving here at AZIU.
Ellesse’s Trionfo Skort
The classic one. Part of ellesse’s SS20 collection, the traditional crisp white Trionfo skort features internal shorts, a comfy elasticated waistband and a woven orange ellesse badge just above the hem.
