If you could take a peek into my “style inspo” Pinterest board, you’d find it overflowing with one particular trend: country club style or, more broadly, preppy fashion. My summer vibe is that I want to look like I just came from a tennis lesson with a hot French instructor at all times.

Represented by “tennis club” graphic sweatshirts, pleated skirts and dresses, polo collars, sweaters draped over your shoulders, and more, the preppy fashion trend is especially great because it’s not only cute and stylish, but it’s also super comfortable. Cool girls everywhere are going to be rocking this trend all summer long—all you have to do is take one quick scroll through Instagram to see it in your feed.

But being a cool tennis girl isn’t out of reach. This style is versatile enough that anyone can make it work with their own personal style, so we’ve searched the internet for all of the best pieces that represent Country Club Chic. 


Sporty Sweatshirts

Channel your inner Princess Diana with an oversized graphic sweatshirt paired with athletic bottoms—anything from a pleated tennis skirt to your favorite pair of biker shorts will do. Both tennis graphic sweatshirts and rugby-style ones are sure to have you feeling like you’re part of an exclusive club.


Athletic Skirts & Dresses

You can’t have preppy and sporty-chic without a few classic tennis skirts and dresses. Whether you prefer the quintessential white pleats or want to branch out to a fun color or a different style, there is no shortage of insanely cute options for everyone. The best part? These can be dressed down with a sweatshirt or dressed up with a nice sweater.


Varsity-Style Knits & Polos

Take your preppy look from the tennis courts to boarding school with a varsity-style sweater, vest, or classic polo top. These timeless pieces in the calming color palette of neutrals, greens, and blues are the perfect way to make an understated statement.



Preppy Accessories

A country club look is not complete without a few preppy accessories. From baseball hats to classic tote bags to sporty sneakers, these pieces will add the finishing touch to your look and have you feeling ultra-chic. A simple piece, such as a tennis dress, can become a whole look with the addition of a couple of these accessories.
