How to Serve Tenniscore this Spring

Ahead of the hotly anticipated release of the Challengers movie on the 26th of April and in light of Zendaya’s impressive ‘Tenniscore’ looks on the ongoing press tour, Megan Watkins, Head Stylist at online fashion destination SilkFred has shared some expert comments with us, discussing the hot new trend.

Megan reveals: “Ever since Zendaya was spotted at the BNP Paribas Open in California, wearing a Louis Vuitton white pleated skirt and matching cropped hoodie, we haven’t been able to stop thinking about how we can incorporate more ‘tennis’ into our everyday wardrobes.”

“Defined by crisp whites, tennis court greens, preppy piping and sports-inspired accessories the ‘tenniscore’ trend defines everything we love about Spring. As the weather warms, we’re more inclined to get outside, and even if we’re reluctant about actually picking up a racquet, we want to look like we’re on our way to a leisurely afternoon tennis match.”

“Stepping away from the basic vests and skorts, Zendaya’s current press tour looks for Challengers is giving us a masterclass on how ‘Tenniscore’ can be elevated and updated for 2024.”

“Using interesting prints like bold check and adding fun points of interest (ahem, tennis ball heels) and opting for plunging maxi dresses offset by sporty headbands and pleats, she has adapted Tenniscore for the red carpet. She has seamlessly given us game, set, match whilst looking elegant.”

Expert tips on how to style the ‘tenniscore’ trend:

Megan recommends: “Luckily for us, the ‘tenniscore’ trend can be easily blended into regular outfits for a touch of elevation and Spring fashion fun.”

“It is important to note that Tenniscore has a distinctly preppy feel, so items like headbands, white scrunchy socks and a jumper in cream or white draped across the shoulders will give any outfit a distinct Tenniscore vibe.”

“For everyday, swap out your regular midi or maxi skirt for a pleated version in white or cream. Instead of your regular white t-shirt, go for a polo style which you can layer with a preppy sweater vest.”

“You can take this trend to more formal events, by adding in Tennis accents to your regular date night or event outfits – think mesh inserts, green piping, preppy print like check and stripes.”

Megan’s 5 top must-haves for this trend are:

  • Polo shirt
  • Pleated skirt
  • White headband
  • Tennis bracelet
  • Crew-necked white sweater
