It seems like more people than ever are playing golf, tennis, and pickleball these days. The summer sports are here to stay! Over the pandemic, when indoor activities screeched to a halt, my relationship with golf blossomed into a full-blown obsession. I was stepping up my golf game, which meant I had to step up my golf wardrobe, too. Luckily, new brands have popped up in the golf-and-tennis space, creating genuinely cute clothes. You can score points with your style, too!
Exercise dresses are the best of both worlds: comfy, sweat-wicking material but still seriously cute. I love the high neck and swishy skirt on this Lululemon’s Court Crush dress. J.Crew’s sport dress has a flattering half-zip halter neckline. Lacoste’s polo dress is a classic for a reason. Tory Sport’s tennis dress is a 20s-inspired drop waist dream in navy and white.
You can’t go wrong with a classic white pleated tennis skirt, like this one from Tuckernuck, this one from Aloo (also in blue), or this one from Tory Sport. If you’re looking for something more colorful, Tuckernuck’s trellis skirt comes in navy or green. A pair of white Bermuda shorts are perfect for hitting the links, or in a fun paisley print.

Never leave the house with a sweater tied around your shoulders! Kule’s cable-knit Chrissie or the Tommy cardigan are dressier options, in case you’re enjoying a glass of wine after your match is over. J.Crew’s half-zip sweatshirt, Tory Sport’s sweatshirt, or Tuckernuck’s sweatshirt all hop on the half-zip trend.
A cute bag is a key part of a successfully stylish tennis or pickleball ensemble. Tory Burch’s tennis tote is convertible, so you can take off the tennis part for a twofer. Williams-Sonoma’s pickleball bag comes with your initials for a personal touch, or their sporty canvas bag in a cute print. Kule’s Tennis Club tote looks just as good by the pool or beach as it does on the hardcourt.
