Different Ways to Style a Tennis Skirt
1. Oversized Pullovers
Honestly, anything oversized looks AMAZING with tennis skirts. This is because the short, mini skirt is balanced by a bigger, more ‘conservative’ top, making your outfit look sexy, cute, and cozy all at the same time.
Oversized pullovers are a super trendy and popular way to style tennis skirts. You can wear oversized pullover sweaters, hoodies, or any other top really.
This is also perfect for the Fall and Autumn time because they’re warm and cozy.
Where to Buy Oversized Pullovers?
So where do you find cute, affordable pullovers? My favorite places to look are Amazon, H&M, Bershka, and Urban Outfitters.
You can find really affordable, plain oversized pullovers at H&M and Amazon, though if you want more embellished ones, these places aren’t where you should look. Bershka has a great range of pullovers that are trendy and cute at a good price range. Urban Outfitters has AMAZING pullovers! They are pricier than the other stores I have mentioned, but they are a lot less plain.

2. Collared Shirts & Sweaters
How to style tennis skirts? The most popular way to style these pleated mini skirts is with collared shirts and sweaters.
This style gives us major school girl vibes, in the best way possible! It’s fun, flirty, and fit for any day occasion.
Collared shirts and sweaters are really great for transitioning into the Fall, too, because when it’s cold in the mornings you have the sweater to keep you warm, and once it gets hot in the afternoon, you can take off the sweater and rock just the collared shirt and skirt for a cool, casual vibe.
Where to Find Collared Shirts & Sweaters
This way of styling tennis skirts is really easy, too, because virtually every store has button-down shirts and sweaters. Some trendy, cool stores you definitely want to check out for this style are Zara and Mango.
Zara has some of the best pieces every season at a reasonable price point and the same goes for Mango. Mango is a bit more boho and neutral-toned whereas Zara is more modern, cool-toned, and trendy. Other stores like H&M and Topshop are also great places to look.
But, honestly, any store is fine because any store will have collared shirts and sweaters. Now, it’s just up to your personal style and vibe.
Also, you don’t just need to wear sweaters in the usual sense. The pullovers I linked and talked about above are great with collared shirts, too! I also posted a few inspo pics with collared shirts and pullovers below, just to show you how cute they look.

5. Colored Tights and Knee High Socks
Tights are a Fall staple and one of the cutest and easiest ways to transition an outfit from Summer to Autumn. Everyone has their black, sheer polka-dot tights that they pull out every Fall, but have you tried colored tights?
Colored tights keep your legs warm but are still fun, colorful, and nostalgic of Summer. If you find ones with patterns and prints, even better! They’re funky, cool, and super unique. Colorful fishnet stockings are really fun, too!
To wear with tennis skirts, I would recommend sheer pastel tights or knee high socks.
Knee high socks are warm, sexy, and so much fun for the Fall.
