When thinking about the retro trends returning due to a year that many of us spent working, eating, and scrolling from home (without changing outfits), it’s easy to point to the obvious: Princess Di bike shorts, oversized sweatshirts or the classic tie dye set. Now that the world is slowly, but surely, starting to open up more and more, it’s an ideal time to explore equally comfortable outfits that are just a little bit more elevated, maybe something with feminine flair, which all of the best tennis skirts we’ve found lately have to spare.

Sure, they may have once served (pardon the pun) prep school, by way of Newport, energy. But now, they are a perfect piece to dress up or down since they’re sporty, cute, cozy, versatile, and playful. If you don’t believe me, searches for the ephemeral outfit staple have gone up ten-fold on Google, Pinterest, and shopping apps alike as of late.

These are the 7 best tennis skirts to add to your warm-weather wardrobe ASAP.
