Tennis skirts (or pleated skirts) are a hot trend in fashion in 2014 and we believe it will remain that way for this year as well. Since American Apparel launched it, many girls have wanted to wear it. If you’re familiar with the site called Tumblr, looking at girls wearing these tennis skirts will make you want to own one, or five.
Tennis skirts are not just for playing tennis anymore. It’s easy to style and very comfortable. The only downside of the skirt is that it isn’t for every body shape. Some women would look more flattering in pencil skirts than an A-line skirt. So before purchasing your own from American Apparel, or even Nike, make sure to fit it first and decide if it looks great on you or not.
If you’re not so sure on how to style them, here are 12 outfit ideas that you could try with your tennis skirt.
For a laidback, everyday look, a printed tennis skirt like a polka dotted one would look great with a solid-colored top. For this look, a black racer back top, tennis skirt and a pair of slip-ons which are so popular these days.
Here’s another type of tennis skirt and this one isn’t pleated. Look for an oversized gray shirt to go with your white tennis skirt and complete the look with a vintage fest and nude-colored t-strap flats. Perfect outfit for quick errands and the like.
Make more use of your tennis skirt by wearing it on a very sporty look. If you have a light-colored tennis skirt, match it with a black varsity shirt, knee high socks and your favorite trainers.
