What do coastal grandmothers, Meredith Blake and Sporty Spice all have in common? They’re all offshoots of the newest aesthetic to sweep Instagram feeds: tenniscore. Another “core” has been added to the ongoing trend list, but this one really seems to be at the actual core of these various fashion themes. What is Tenniscore you might ask? Well for starters, it involves a lot more than just serving on the court.
Tenniscore is the blending of modern athleisure (like the popular Alo yoga tennis skirt) with a vintage country club aesthetic. When I think of the vibe, I like to picture a young Kris Jenner in full tennis whites meeting present-day Kim Kardashian for lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel—the perfect mix of modern-day fashion and vintage nostalgia.
While tenniscore obviously takes on a literal purpose on a tennis court, it can also act as an aspirational aesthetic for every day. Pleated skirts can be paired with crew socks and worn with loafers or sneakers as a transitional look from summer to fall. Knit-striped sweaters should be tied around your shoulders at any possible opportunity (pretty much every time you’re wearing slacks). And an oversized sporty tote bag can be a practical replacement for your old work or weekend bag. Essentially, if it’s preppy, sporty and practical, you’ve successfully scored the tenniscore aesthetic.

Evian x Rothys The Visor
When it comes to tenniscore, the best way to go about things is to mix in accessories that you’d wear throughout your everyday life. This visor, which is part of the special US Open collab between Evian and Rothys (where the brands literally took recycled water bottles from last year’s tournament to produce a lineup of incredible preppy tennis essentials) is lined with terry so it has that Hamptons feel but can withstand the toughest matches thanks to its flexible and comfortable design.

This long sleeve set is the perfect fall transition piece to serve a look.
