Tennis inspired fashion and the tenniscore trend are going strong into fall fashion season 2022

There is no doubt that dressing like a tennis player AKA “tenniscore” has become a significant part of fashion this summer. Top designers like Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Miu Miu,, Love Shack Fancy, and Rowing Blazers are in on it. It’s like the whole world is dressing as a teen villain in an ’80’s movie.

But just because the temperature will be going down soon, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your love of tennis fashion. Tennis sweaters will be all the rage this fall. “A tennis sweater harkens back to another time—the faded glory of the country club, prep-school set,” Katie Warner Johnson, CEO of Carbon38, told

“However, today, as we all have a habit of standing dress codes on their heads and carving our own styling paths, the tennis sweater works its way into our wardrobes as a contrast, almost as a costume as we try on (literally) the romanticized version of a past that may not have much relevance today.”

There are some beautiful ones for you to choose from (and just in time for the U.S. Open!) Here are some of the best ones. 

Tennis inspired fashion – aka tenniscore – reigns with luxury sweaters for fall 2022

Banana Republic has been taking their vintage collection to the next level as well as their tennis game. Though this kitschy but chic sweater vest is technically for men, a woman could pull it off as well. Or you could opt for a more straight-laced approach with this navy blue classic.
