This particular cosplay is based on Serena, one of the playable trainers/rivals in Pokémon X/Y since her outfit is easy for a quick costume fix. Simply put on a black tank top and pair it with a pleated red skirt. The Decoy Sportswear tank top is available in black or white if you want to change up Serena’s style. You’ll get support and breathability from the cotton, Lycra, and Spandex blend.
