Tennis Skirts Are the Epitome of Country Club Chic

One essential to have when trying to achieve the country club chic aesthetic is a tennis skirt. After all, what country club member wouldn’t have one? They’re cute and more versatile than you might think. 

To offset the athletic nature of your tennis skirt, wear it with a cardigan. Tennis skirts also come in different styles, so if pleats aren’t your thing, you can opt for the skort style.

Embrace a Sweater Vest and Loafers off the Court

This aesthetic does include some athletic wear items, but don’t forget the non-exercise related ones. Sweaters, sweater vests, and loafers are all versatile pieces that walk the country club chic line between classy and casual. When shopping, choose classic pieces in a neutral color palette so everything can be mixed and matched. It makes getting dressed in the morning much easier!

Get creative with your accessories to take the same simple pieces and create unique looks again and again without feeling like you’re repeating an outfit.

But if sweats aren’t really your thing, there are also lots of sets utilizing other bonafide preppy essentials like biker shorts reminiscent of Lady Diana that can help you achieve the same goal.
