ICYMI, tenniscore is having a moment. Maybe it’s our sudden love of racquet sports that’s got us *serving* looks, on and off the court. Or, maybe it’s Zendaya’s ridiculously stunning (and super clever) wardrobe she’s been rocking on her press tour for Challengers (which hits theaters April 26). Hard to say exactly what’s sending us sprinting to the closest shopping mall for pleated skorts and polos, but we’re doing it nonetheless.

If you’re scratching your head wondering what the heck “tenniscore” is, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Think: preppy collared shirts, flouncy skirts, pretty pastels (or classic tennis whites)—anything you’d wear at the net, only you can wear it well beyond your friendly pickleball match. Sure, these pieces perform great on the court, but they look just as good at brunch with friends, walking the pup around the block, running errands, and everywhere in between.

Which brings us to the fun part: the best tenniscore styles to add to your wardrobe. If you want to channel your inner Billie Jean King—no matter your actual level—these pieces will make your wardrobe a grand slam.
