3 ways to style the nike pleated tennis skirt

nike pleated skirt outfit ideas

Comfy, effortless, chic with an athleisure twist – it’s no wonder the fashion universe went crazy over Nike’s pleated tennis skirt outfits (which is actually a skort by the way). While the original release sold out almost immediately, the concept itself is refreshing enough you can easily swap it out with another basic pleated min. If you were lucky enough to snag one, here’s some outfit inspo to help you incorporate the trend into your wardrobe.

Athleisure casual cool

For the first look, keep it casual with this athleisure combo. Pair the Nike pleated tennis skirt with an oversized crew neck sweatshirt and a pair of sneakers. Nike is an athletic brand after all. This look is not only completely effortless, it’s also very, very comfy – comfy enough I wear this look at home to lounge as well. It’s great for days you don’t really feel like getting dressed, but you don’t want to feel like a total scrub. Throw on a baseball cap and you’re also ready to run your quick errands without having to take the time to get ready.

Preppy and tailored

Athleisure is not just for the sporty girls. Class up the Nike pleated tennis skirt with a tailored blazer and a pair of over the knee boots. The look is ladylike preppy.

You’ll hardly realize you’re wearing a sporty piece at all. Pleated skirts are a huge fashion trend of the season, and the Nike skort is a comfy alternative to traditional pleated skirt styles. Bonus, you don’t have to be quite so ladylike since the skort saves you from potential fashion faux pas.

Modern trend setter

If you tend to make trends instead of following them, don’t be afraid to remix the Nike skirt with unexpected combinations. Bear a little skin with a coordinate bra or crop top, and layer over an oversized jacket for an eclectic look you can make all your own. Don’t forget your statement luxury handbag for that final statement that completes the ensemble.

Closely following emerging luxury fashion trends for both my work and the blog, I was quick to snag the Nike skort in both black and white to give them a try for all the hype. They’ve quickly become a couple of the most worn pieces in my wardrobe. The simple athleisure twist on the classic pleated mini is incredible versatile, and the outfit combinations are truly without limit.

No Nike skirt? No problem.

You can still get the look by substituting these outfits with any basic pleated mini skirt. Nike still has a few mini tennis skort options available on their site. Revolve also has some great pleated mini skirts that are very similar to the Nike pleated tennis skirt silhouette.
