What to wear to the Australian Open:
How to turn up the heat on the Melbourne fashion scene
The Do’s and Don’ts for the Australian Open:
Do: Dress for comfort
You’re going to be doing a lot of spectating. And if you’re not familiar with this - it means you’re going to be in a stadium chair with limited movement.
Think: Flowy summer dresses and open-toe sandals.
Do: Wear a Hat
Open Air stadiums, thousands of spectators and hot summer air - You’ll thank us later when you’ll be the envy of everyone else who neglected their slip, slop, slap.
Think: European vacay inspired panama’s or a super cute sun visor.
Do: Bring a bag
Put away the clutches and be sensible with this one. You’re going to need sunscreen, make-up, sunglasses, water and any other essential you can stuff in your bag for whole day event.
Think: A large tote, satchel or medium sized backpack.
Don’t: Wear your shortest skirt or denim cut-offs.
There’s a chance you’ll make it onto the TV and I doubt you want your five seconds of fame to be a line of sight to remember.
Don’t: Wear oversized anything
Be considerate of the people behind you, the last thing you want is to block their view because you wanted to flash your fancy new accessory (this includes hats!)
Don’t: Wear Heels
Unless you’ve mastered the art of walking through the stadium chair gaps, without having to apologise to a few who copped the grunt of your heel - this is a big no.
