From a sporty chic look for the ladies, to a cool and casual ensemble for the gentlemen – here’s the ultimate tennis match style cheat sheet.

For the Ladies


Comfort is the name of a game at a tennis match so sneakers are a no brainer especially this blush-colored leather pair. The subtle hue makes them a great summer to fall transitional piece.

If you’re heading to see a night match, bringing a light outer layer is a must. A classic button-down is a Grand Slam in chambray or cotton with a touch of stretchy elastane. Rock it with a tennis skirt if you want to be fully in the spirit of the sport. Or, you can even dress it up with jeans and a pair of pumps. This season is also leaning heavy on athletic and vintage sweatshirts if a little blast from the past is your flavor, too.


Tennis-Inspired Skirt

It wouldn’t be a tennis match style guide without a cute tennis-inspired skirt. This high-waisted beauty is begging to make an appearance at the 2022 US Open. Style it with a crop top and sneakers for a day match or dress it up for the night with wedges and a light sweater.


Vintage-Inspired Sunglasses

Making a statement at a tennis match is all about having eye-catching accessories, and sunnies with a throwback vibe to funk up a more polished outfit are exactly what you need to take your 2022 US Open ensemble from basic to Instagram-worthy this season. Plus, imagine all the cool selfies you can take by sporting such unique shapes.

For the Gentlemen

Dapper Blazer

For the guys, it’s all about keeping it classy but still relaxed. A good, lightweight blazer in a fun color – or featuring all-over patterns! – is a great way to stand out in the crowd. You can dress it up with trousers or dress it down with a pair a jeans. Either way, it’s a winning look.



It still very much feels like summer in New York, so if you’re heading to a day match you’ll want something light and breezy to wear like a pair of trousers. They are the perfect blend of dressed up and laid-back, and stand out in a more forward set of color choices this season.


Boat Shoes

These casual boat shoes are just the thing for making your outfit feel nice and breezy amid the summer heat. You can go sock-less and wear them with shorts or chinos for a cool and comfortable look.



Lastly, you’ll need some good eye-protection for a great viewing experience. These sunnies have that classic and cool factor that will elevate whatever you wear them with.
