Tennis clothes have always been fetishized by fashion designers. From player's low-key sneakers and preppy knits to their pristine polo shirts, there really isn't one element that can't be reinterpreted for real-life wear. That also includes the white shorts everyone from John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg to Roger Federer lit the court on fire while wearing. Cut slightly looser and longer than in the '70s, yet still right above the knee, the staple looks stylish with everyone from your favorite band T-shirt to a preppy pullover. Bonus points if you've got a mop of messy hair and toned thighs like one of the pros.
