What to Wear to the U.S. Open: 7 Winning Outfit Ideas by Nicole Kliest
The US Open begins today and fans have already started gathering in the Arthur Ashe Stadium. With nearly 750,000 people typically in attendance, it is one of the most highly anticipated sporting events in New York—and the fashion also doesn’t disappoint. From Ralph Lauren’s classic Americana sweaters and polos (as worn on the ball boys and girls) to the styles sported by spectators who turn up in their favorite LWDs (“Little White Dresses”), the scene is a stylish one.
As some of the best-dressed guests prove, the key to acing your US Open look is comfort and polish. Wear an A-line day dress with a varsity sweater wrapped around your shoulders for when the weather cools down at night. And then, accessorize your look with a bucket hat and a classic tennis bracelet around your wrist. And what’s a tennis match without a pair of kicks? Given the Open is an all-day affair, choose sneakers that are just as comfortable as they are chic; Gucci’s running sneakers will give your ensemble a sporty twist, while Adidas’ Sambas are classic and cool and pair well with an all-white summer look.
