I’ve had a very active summer. It’s been all about the golf – until I finally got into pickleball. After resisting as long as I could, I’m happy to report I love it. But as always, I wanted to look good while I was playing! Luckily there are so many new brands making stylish activewear no matter what your sport is – tennis, golf, pickle ball. Win or lose, at least you’ll look great.
I love wearing skirts and shorts, but I always have to make sure they’re not too short. J.McLaughlin’s Briana skort is on heavy rotation for me. I love the built-in shorts and zippered pockets, plus it comes in fun prints like pink gingham, a beachy blue-and-yellow, and a blue botanical print. Their Agnes skort has a cute little ruffle along the bottom!
Outdoor Voices’s famous Exercise Dress is a cult favorite, but there are plenty of athletic dresses out there right now to choose from. Varley’s Elgan dress is what tennis white dreams are made of, Staud’s white-and-green dress is perfectly crisp, and J.McLaughlin’s navy dress ticks all the boxes.
Tory Burch does many things well, but my favorite lately has been her sportswear line. These are slightly pricier pieces but they really do feel like actual Fashion. This lavender vintage-inspired polo would look just as good off or on the court. There’s a sleeveless version too! I love the drop-waisted detail and pretty pleats in this performance dress.
