Hey, remember what short shorts feel like? I posted this tennis skirt outfit look on Instagram late last week, and you guys LOVED it as much as I did… and I realized that despite NYC’s 90º temps (and my legs being my favorite asset, ha!), it’s been a while since I’ve worn anything so short!
Inspired by one of my close friends here in New York City, who seems to have a never-ending collection of skorts… and a pair of enviable legs to match… I sought out some pleated tennis skirts for myself. Nike makes the best ones you’re seeing all over Pinterest (“tennis skirt outfit” has been a trending search all summer) but you might have to do some internet sleuthing because they seem to be sold out almost everywhere!
My favorite thing about tennis skirts are the built in shorts underneath, so I can stay super comfortable and stylish without having to worry about the odd breeze rolling through to give me an embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment… which in reality are never as glam as Marilyn made them look 😅
p.s. my T-shirt is from a black-owned eveningwear fashion brand called Aliétte – more precisely, owned by Hollywood stylist Jason Rembert who has worked with so many of my favorite A-list names. I went to their NYFW show earlier this year and fell in love with every look! Definitely a brand to keep on your radar… and it doesn’t hurt that it’s Issa Rae approved too! xx
