It's no secret that tennis skirts have become somewhat of a fashion statement over the years, alongside some of the best gym wear. The likes of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been spotted out and about in them (Kendall's favourite is the Alo Yoga skirt below) and designer Miu Miu's tennis-inspired mini skirt was a key part of their AW22 collection.

The problem is, the styles tend to sell out every spring and summer. The proof is in the data, really: searches for tennis skirts increased by 55% during the month of May compared to February last year. So, get ahead and stock up whilst you can. 

Here at Team MC, we're big fans of the trend, We've been wearing them a lot - because not only do they look cute, but they're also great for working out in. Tennis is a relatively low-impact cardio workout, meaning it's the perfect sport to take up no matter how experienced you are.

Keen to invest in a stylish tennis outfit that you can wear on and off the court? Well, you're in the right place.

We've been testing some of the best activewear brands out there, from Alo Yoga, to Reformation, to adidas. Lucky for you, we've rated the outfits depending on how practical they were for working out plus whether they'd also pass for an everyday outfit when you fancy grabbing brunch with the girls.

Testing process

Wondering who tested the tennis outfits? We enrolled the help of our Health, Sustainability and Relationships Editor, Ally Head, our Fashion Editor, Zoe Anastasiou, and our Ecommerce Writer, Grace Lindsay.

Between them, they've tested a lot of gym kit over the years, from matching gym sets, running shorts, running trainers, oversized gym t-shirts, gym hoodies, cycling shorts and more. Ally, Zoe and Grace tested the outfits on the tennis court, at the gym and even wore some to work (yes, really).
