What to Wear to the U.S. Open
Tennis’ biggest event is almost here!
At the end of this month, the U.S. Open returns to the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, Queens. And along with all the big names you’ll see on and off the court, some of AYSHA NY’s best clients will definitely be there. So why not take the opportunity to show off your best country club looks?
Casual-chic styles dominate the stands every year, and we’ve got plenty of looks on hand that are perfect for this yearly event. Take a look at our best suggestions below.
Consider This First:
If you live in or around NYC, then you know how rough that commute to Flushing is. Whether you’re driving in or taking the train, you’ll be sitting down for a while no matter what. And once you’re at the venue, you’re in those seats for even longer. And with an open venue, you’ll also have to deal with direct sunlight and sudden weather changes.
So when it comes to your fashion, comfort should always take priority.
Stay Light and Comfortable
Candice Dress Samantha Dress
Look all across the stands and you’ll see plenty of whites and brights everywhere. You’ll need those light colors and fabrics to stay cool and deflect the sunlight. Not to mention that country club-chic is all about that crisp, clean look — easy to move around in yet still stylish.
That’s why the Candice Dress is our perfect pick for an event like the U.S. open. It has plenty of white, is comfortable enough to wear all day, and can easily be dressed up with some accessories.
On the other hand, if you want something more loose and flowy, we also recommend the Samantha Dress. Its summery pattern and easy wear help you look and feel completely put-together with little effort.
Bring a Layer
Black and White Polka Garden Cutting Powder Blue Polka Dot
Wearing layers at an outdoor event in the summer might seem like a bad idea at first. But when the sun shines directly overhead, you’ll need something to cover up your arms. And if it gets too windy, you’ll be very glad you have it with you.
If you want to be cautious, then take one of our Blousettes. Its wrinkle free fabric allows you to roll a Blousette into a tennis ball (no pun intended) and carry it in your bag. Should a need arise, it’s on hand. . And most of them come in light colors and patterns — so our two Polka Dot options or Garden Cutting prints will fit in perfectly at this event.
Don’t Forget Footwear

Your shoes should be just as comfortable as the rest of your outfit. That’s why sneakers are your best option. Far from just basic gym wear, they’ve become much more fashionable and high quality over the years. So you’d be surprised at how well they pair up with different dresses.
On is one of Aysha’s go-to sneaker brands. Their unique soles are made with trademarked CloudTec material that’s equal parts lightweight, protective, and comfortable. And with a wide range of colors to choose from, you’ll have no problem making a statement.
They’ve even collaborated with Roger Federer on his own line of tennis shoes. So how could you not choose them for the U.S. Open?
Accessories can make your look and give you some extra protection, and that’s definitely the case at this event. No matter what you’re wearing, don’t forget to bring a hat with you to shield your face. A wide-brimmed sun hat is best, and it enhances your outfit, but even a visor will work just as well.
And don’t forget about a pair of sunglasses to go along with the hat. We always say that bigger is better when it comes to protective eyewear. Not only do they make more of a statement, but they can shield more of your face.

And let’s not forget about your bag. Since we’re going casual here, and you’ll likely bring extra items with you, we recommend a simple and inexpensive tote like this one from Thread Wallets. More specifically, choose something that you wouldn’t mind placing down on the floor. You can’t fully enjoy the game if you’re clutching your bag the whole time.
