Zendaya’s Sporty Set Included Subtle Color Shifts

If you weren’t already on board with tenniscore, Zendaya (and her stylist, Law Roach) are gonna have you wrapping cashmere sweaters around your shoulders and toting racket bags like they’re purses before the spring is done.

To promote new film Challengers, the pro-tennis-centered drama in which she plays opposite Josh O’Connor (The Crown) and Mike Faist (West Side Story), Zendaya has been pulling out nonstop tennis-inspired looks for the past month. Whether she’s subtly leaning into the theme (like re-creating dresses worn by tennis greats) or fully leaning into it (with pumps that have literal tennis balls skewered onto the heels), the Euphoria star has simply been killing it. And we’re gonna miss this “method dressing” once Challengers hits theaters this Friday, April 26.

But she’s not done quite yet. For her latest look, the Emmy winner was seen on the streets of New York City in a forest-green ensemble courtesy of Tory Burch. Zendaya looked ready to hit the court in a chevron polo top and matching miniskirt, both of which were decorated with bright stripes in shades of white, navy, and lime green.

While the skirt was totally green except for the details on the sides, the top was separated into two distinct sections, thanks to the stripes that made a V below the placket. In subtle contrast to the green bottom half, the section above the stripes was navy blue. Since we’ve already seen the Dune actor wink to the sports uniform in tennis whites, it was refreshing to see this colorful switch-up.

As for accessories, Zendaya still managed to add a touch of white with her pearly Louboutin pumps, which correlated with the striped details up top. Then, the Disney alum added jewelry from Bulgari—diamond stud earrings, a silver bangle, and a silver ring with a square yellow stone. No one’s doing it quite like her.
