Unlike other sporting events, such as the Spring Racing Carnival, the Australian Open tournament is all about ditching high fashion for something more comfortable. From polo shirts to relaxed fit pieces, the dress code is somewhere between sporty chic and casual. If you're looking for some inspiration though, you can check out our top picks below.


Linen

Linen has become one of the hottest summer fashion trends this year for good reason. The fabric is soft, breathable and comfortable, making it the perfect choice for a long day in the sun.

ASOS

Polo shirts

The preppy polo has had a reboot lately, making the Australian Open the perfect time to snap one up. The tops are halfway between casual and dressy and can be matched with everything from jeans to skirts.

Relaxed staples

Relaxed fit pieces are currently having a moment, making it easy to stay both comfortable and fashionable courtside. Ladies can pair a loose fitting dress with a pair of cute sneakers while the gents can opt to throw on their favourite tee with a pair of elasticated shorts.

THE ICONIC

Pleated mini skirt

If you do feel like getting a little dressed up, a pleated mini skirt is sure to turn heads. Not only is it the perfect piece for the sunnier weather, but it's also versatile enough to pair with everything from a singlet top to a polo shirt.

Sneakers

When it comes to the Australian Open, you're definitely going to want to trade in the dress shoes for a stylish pair of sneakers. Remember, it will be a long day and you may have to walk between public transport spots, so it pays to be prepared.

Accessories

Now that you've got your outfit sorted, you can focus on the other essentials you'll need on the day. Sunglasses and hats are absolute must-haves and it always pays to take a water bottle along too.
