Off-Duty Tennis Pro
Workout skirts and dresses have been on the rise for some years now. But in 2023, expect to see more of these designs reflect the tennis world. Everyone will be channeling their inner Serena Willams before you know it.
It's becoming increasingly popular to schedule errands, activities, and hangouts right after a workout. Many are opting for chic lounge and sporty/streetwear pieces to throw on post-workout to look put together and trendy while maintaining comfort.
After graduating from the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism, Chichi moved to Brooklyn and began hustling to make it in the NYC media world. Before landing at WWW, she spent some time at Vice Media Group, where she helped revolutionize Refinery29's plus-size and inclusive fashion coverage and even co-hosted a summer styling series. Prior to R29, she supported Bustle Digital Group's commerce team and freelanced for various publications.
Chichi is a multi-passionate, pop culture–obsessed television and music lover who enjoys a good concert and a yummy meal just as much as she loves analyzing cultural trends and throwing together a solid outfit. After work, you can probably find her bopping around the best L.A. restaurants talking about her latest ADHD-fueled hyper-fixation (e.g., Jesse McCartney's underrated career, TikTok black hole discoveries, and theories on the emo-rock music revival).
