Lockdown has led to some pretty strange behavior lately. First, people rushed to buy all the toilet paper they could get their hands on, then everybody started to dress up like bank robbers. And now all of a sudden, fashion girls everywhere have become huge tennis fans.

Okay, that last one isn't entirely true. But the tennis skirt look has taken off in such a huge way, you could be forgiven for thinking everyone was playing their new favorite sport.

According to Who What Wear this new pleated miniskirt trend has a preppy vibe that you might not be used to incorporating into your personal style. But with the right complementary pieces, you can make this trend all your own.

The Zoe Report says that there are a few different ways to approach this look. If you want a more practical outfit, a traditional silhouette with built-in shorts for full coverage might be the way to go.

On the other hand, if you are after that preppy girl vibe, a modern style with crisp pleats and a more tailored feel might be more your flavor.

If you want to dive in headfirst, a legitimate tennis design will move freely with you but also leave you exposed without any shorts underneath. And they have elasticated waistbands for lots of flexibility. So, if you accidentally end up playing an actual game of tennis, you'll be game, set, match!

Forego the sporty vibes for a more chic ensemble by pairing a tennis skirt with something a little more unconventional like a knitted crop top. This one really nails the 2000s fashion aesthetic.

I love graphic tees, so it seems only natural to pair them with this latest trend. It's an easy way to keep your tennis skirt in check and elevate your favorite tee at the same time.

If you want to make a statement, go with a bold colored graphic tee.

Tennis Skirt + Sporty Pullover
