Elegance in the City:
Crafting the Perfect Ensemble for an Evening at the US Open Tennis Tournament in New York City
The US Open tennis tournament is more than just a sports event; it's a fusion of athleticism, excitement, and style. As the sun sets and the stars come out, the evening matches add an extra layer of glamour to the already electric atmosphere. If you're planning to attend one of these captivating matches, your outfit should reflect the essence of this sophisticated affair in one of the best cities in the world.
In this blog post, we have dressed a US Open spectator in an outfit that is comfortable, contemporary, classic and just sporty enough for an evening under the lights at Arthur Ashe Statium.
The foundation of this ensemble is the Edara Tie-Back Dress in black. This black dress strikes the perfect balance between comfort and style, hugging your figure in all the right places. The tie-back detail adds an element of playfulness while maintaining an air of sophistication. The dress transitions seamlessly from day to night, making it an ideal choice for an evening event. Instead of a traditional sports bra or regular bra, go with a comfortable, strappy bralette.
Layering is essential when planning an outfit for an evening event, and the Berkshire Houndstooth Dickey Jacket by Veronica Beard serves this purpose impeccably. The houndstooth pattern adds a touch of classic charm, gives a nod to the onset of the Fall season, and as with all Veronica Beard designs, empowers its female wearer with effortless confidence.
For an event that involves a fair amount of walking, comfortable footwear is a must. Madewell's Greta Ballet Flats in chocolate raisin strike the perfect balance between comfort and style. The rich hue adds depth to the outfit, while the ballet flat design—which is having a big fashion reboot this Fall— adds a dash of femininity.
To infuse a sporty, casual edge into the outfit, top it off with a black New York Yankees ball cap. This unexpected accessory brings a touch of athleticism and embraces the spirit of the US Open’s host city.
Modern fashion is all about convenience without compromising style, and the Senreve Aria Belt Bag in black embodies this philosophy. Worn as a crossbody or around the waist, this accessory adds a contemporary touch to the ensemble while keeping your essentials within arm's reach.
As the sun begins to set, Le Specs' Outta Love sunglasses provide both protection and style. The throwback ‘90s silhouette is very on trend, and maybe you will be mistaken for a celebrity with the sense of glamour you will exude wearing them.
A classic timepiece like this two-toned Rolex Datejust is the epitome of elegance. Not to mention, Rolex is one of the official US Open partners. Its subtle luxury and timeless design add a sense of refinement to this tennis tournament ensemble.
When it comes to jewelry, less is often more. The simple gold chain cuff by Shashi and gold hoop earrings by Tuckernuck enhance this tennis outfit with understated elegance, allowing the athletic dress and other accessories to take center stage.
Crafting the perfect spectator outfit for an evening at the US Open tennis tournament is a blend of artistry and functionality—a lot like the philosophy behind Edara Apparel’s designs! This year’s outfit featured is carefully curated to capture the style and vibrance of New York City’s long-standing tennis event.
