Tenniscore Is My Whole Spring Vibe—12 Chic Items to Get the Look

There's no escaping it—the tennis fashion trend is coming for your wardrobe in 2024. Launched back into the mainstream by Zendaya's iconic Challengers press tour wardrobe, the sporty trend is rightfully back on the agenda this spring. Whilst Zendaya single handedly brought it to our attention, the enduring appeal of the tennis fashion trend isn't to be underestimated.

Zendaya's been dressing to the theme of her latest film, Challengers, with the help of her stylist, Luxury Law.

The proof lies in the thousands of ridiculously chic vintage Lacoste ads you can find on Pinterest, and in the image below of none other than Princess Diana sporting what we're referring to in 2024 as tenniscore, but way back in the '80s. Anna Wintour lends tennis yet more fashion credentials—she has been attending Wimbledon for many years, and her longtime pal and tennis legend Roger Federer even co-hosted the Met Gala last year.

Princess Diana was a tennis fan and was often spotted at Wimbledon. Here, she indulged in the tennis fashion trend while attending the Vanderbilt Racquet Club in London in 1988.

Tennis, with all its elegant, refined and well-moneyed connotations, has unsurprisingly always had a stronghold on those looking for a chic yet sporty summer vibe. But there's no denying that this year in particular, the world seems extra primed for a wave of tennis-mania.

Influencers have been backing tenniscore in a big way for spring 2024.

Of course, Wimbledon starts in only a few months, which always influences my desire to get out onto the court (or at least look like that’s where I’m heading), and in that, I’m sure I’m not alone. The competition is a reminder of how chic and timeless one can look in all white, after all. But whilst tennis fashion is clearly having a moment, there’s a depth of history and tradition that keeps it coming back every summer and proves it’s more than just another passing fad.

Tennis-inspired looks also graced the Chanel runway.

So, what does tenniscore actually look like? Think polos and pleated skirts, little white dresses and knitted vests for that added vintage vibe. Model Iris Law nailed a ready-to-wear version of the trend at the Cannes film festival last year (see below), proving how keen Gen Z is to jump on the hype, but it can also involve a more sporty and practical approach, which is perfect if you actually play tennis.
