32 Tennis Dresses to Help You Master the Country Club Aesthetic by Nicole Kliest and Julie Tong

Whether you’re serving looks on or off the court, the best tennis dresses of the season can go from country-club chic to street style favorites in one fell swoop, forehand, or backhand. It’s a sport with a rich history of blending form and function, with players of all stripes (Zendaya included!) opting for the best tennis clothes featuring crisp whites, preppy collars, and color-blocking stripes.

Retro athletic attire has been a welcome trend for a while now, whether you’ve ever stepped foot on a court or not, primarily courtesy of Tory Burch and Staud for their vintage-inspired designs. For heritage sports brands like Nike, Fila, and Wilson, the tennis dress is a staple, but emerging brands such as Recreational Habits and Sporty & Rich have taken the tennis dress in a trendier direction with more street style appeal. Outdoor Voices, Alo Yoga, and Lululemon’s technically-advanced styles appeal to players looking to improve their performances, while also providing a certain chicness that’s spot-on for days spent on at the tennis club or elsewhere. Pair any of these options with a sporty white sneaker or, perhaps, a famed tennis bracelet. Read on to discover 32 of the season’s best tennis dresses, below.


For an emphasis on classic preppy silhouettes, slip into a collared tennis dress. Post-game, throw a V-neck sweater over your shoulders for a country club-ready look. There’s no U.S. Open without Ralph Lauren, and it’s only fitting to make an appearance at the games in the brand’s signature polo dress, available in 14 different colors from white to mint green. For a dress that will put an extra pep in your step come summertime, consider Kule’s striped polo dress that is designed to be worn not only on the court, but out in the city, and even on vacation.
