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 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.
