When we play tennis, our usual look could be called "sweat chic" -- red face, matted hair, damp workout tee. (Okay, so maybe not so chic.)

Heather Locklear, however, doesn't seem to share our same tendency to emerge from the tennis court looking like we stood near a walrus doing a cannonball. Locklear, 50, took to the tennis courts in Malibu in a flirty pink skirt and white tank top, both by Fila, to hit some balls around.

Locklear was hospitalized back in January after a frantic 911 call was placed from her house, but it looks like the "Melrose Place" star has gotten her smile back, beaming in pigtails and some cute neon-green sneakers.

If you've got it, flaunt it, and if we're still rocking a mini at 50, you'd better believe we'll be hitting up the tennis court to show off -- even if only to pose for pics.

  • 2. Slip on tap pants under your skirt.

    They're sort of like a slip, but in <a href="http://www.stylebop.com/product_details.php?id=217131&partner=shopstyle&campaign=Kooperation/shopstyle/usd/&utm_source=affiliate&utm_medium=shopstyle&utm_campaign=productfeed&ia-pmtrack=56971310&campaign=affiliate/linkshare/usa/&utm_source=affiliate&utm_medium=linkshare&utm_campaign=adsus&siteID=J84DHJLQkR4-qV4V64zj_F.SEo9G7yW7ng" target="_hplink">shorts form</a>.

  • 3. Go for a slouchy top.

    To compensate for all the leggage, keep the top half of your look baggy (You know our rule: Either T, or A, but not both). <a href="http://www.stylelist.com/2012/03/01/every-girl-should-own-a-grey-sweatshirt_n_1301489.html" target="_hplink">We love a grey sweatshirt</a>, but your boyfriend's oxford will also do the trick.
