Fashion Guide: What to Wear to the French Open at Roland Garros
The French Open at Roland Garros is not just a celebrated tennis tournament; it's also a fashion spectacle that draws the attention of style enthusiasts from around the globe. Attending this prestigious event presents an excellent opportunity to showcase your fashion sense while enjoying world-class tennis matches. If you're a woman lucky enough to have tickets to the French Open, let's explore Edara’s fashion choices that will help you stand out while adhering to the event's traditions and elegance.
The Chic Spectator
Embrace Classic Elegance:
When it comes to dressing for the French Open, it's essential to embrace classic elegance. The event has a long-standing tradition of sophistication and style. Opt for timeless pieces that exude refinement, such as Celine’s classic Triomphe bag, these Tod’s loafers and this navy, slightly over-sized V-neck by Vince.
While dressing elegantly is crucial, comfort should not be compromised, especially during long hours of matches and exploration around the grounds. Choose lightweight fabrics that allow freedom of movement, such as Edara’s white Tie-Back dress.
Show Some Parisian Flair:
Attending the French Open in Paris offers an excellent opportunity to showcase your love for Parisian fashion. Incorporate subtle Parisian elements into your outfit, such as a silk scarf, a beret, or a chic handbag. These small touches can add an air of French sophistication to your overall look. Our choice of a Celine bag is a nod to French designers as would a luxury Hermés silk scarf such as this one.
Opt for Sporty Chic:
Since the French Open is a tennis tournament, it's perfectly acceptable to incorporate sporty elements into your outfit. Consider a stylish polo shirt paired with tailored shorts or a tennis-inspired dress like any of the Edara one-pieces from the Signature Collection. Sneakers are also a popular choice, offering both comfort and a sporty edge. Choose sleek, minimalist designs to maintain a polished look.
Play with Colors and Prints:
The French Open is known for its vibrant atmosphere, and your attire can reflect that. Experiment with colorful outfits or embrace playful prints, such as polka dots or floral patterns. However, it's important to strike a balance and avoid going overboard. Choose one statement piece and keep the rest of your ensemble relatively simple to maintain an elegant aesthetic.
Pay Attention to Sun Protection:
As the tournament takes place in late spring and early summer, it's essential to protect yourself from the sun. Incorporate a stylish hat or a wide-brimmed sun hat into your outfit to shield your face from the sun's rays. Don't forget to apply sunscreen and carry a small umbrella or parasol for extra shade.
Accessories can elevate your French Open ensemble, but choose them thoughtfully to maintain a sophisticated look. Opt for delicate jewelry, such as dainty necklaces or minimalist earrings, that won't distract from your overall outfit. A stylish watch can add a touch of refinement while keeping you punctual for the matches and some stackable gold bracelets from Perpetual Jewelry never go out of style.
The Magnifique Women’s Champ
As a subtle nod to Serena William’s famous catsuit (which has since been banned from the tournament) that she wore to the 2018 French Open, a black Edara Ruffle dress ensemble combined with an orange-red (unreleased color) Advantage sports bra, sets up the 2023 champ with some serious historical confidence.
Play with Colors:
The beautiful brick red clay courts offer a unique backdrop for a big fashion statement. Black not only stands out dramatically against the court, but it signals strength and seriousness, both of which are needed for battle during the French Open final.
Embrace Classic Elegance:
Even our tennis players should capitalize on the opportunity to up the ante in their attire at the French Open. A subtle gold necklace, a coordinating custom Wilson racket, black sweatbands and sleek black Nikes are refined but understated in perfect French fashion.
Attending the French Open at Roland Garros is an exhilarating experience for tennis enthusiasts and fashion aficionados alike. By embracing classic elegance, incorporating Parisian flair, and opting for comfortable yet stylish choices, you can create a memorable and fashionable look for this prestigious event. Remember to consider the unpredictable Parisian weather and pay attention to sun protection, all while enjoying the thrill of the world-class tennis matches. So go ahead, confidently stride through Roland Garros, and let your impeccable, Edara-inspired style shine on and off the court!
