Dress the Part: What to Wear for the US Open

Game, Set, Style

By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Oct 18 2016

Here’s what I love about tennis style: 1) Apart from improved sportswear technology, it hasn’t really changed all that much during the sport’s lifetime, and 2) what you wear on the court isn’t all that different than what you wear to watch it from the stands.

The sport’s preppy pressed-and-collared vibe translates whether you’re playing on the court or politely clapping from your seats.

No, you don’t have to wear a suit like Prince William at this year’s Wimbledon, but you’ve gotta admit that’s a strong look

It was René Lacoste – the iconic tennis brand’s namesake with the once-blue crocodile – who made the short sleeve polo a tennis standard on the court, and I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon.
