The U.S. Open’s top-tier tennis matches are a chance for the fashion set to celebrate the last days of summer, as we prepare for the month-long marathon of runway shows ahead. Back in June at the Resort collections, we witnessed an uptick in kicky skirts and stretchy sheaths that would fit right in at the tournament. For our date courtside, we’d like to be wearing a deep green pleated leather mini from Alexander Wang or Viktor & Rolf’s flouncy thigh-grazer. As for the courts themselves, we could imagine trendsetting players like the Williams sisters, Ana Ivanovic, or Caroline Wozniacki (sadly, Maria Sharapova withdrew from the tournament last minute due to a shoulder injury) sporting Opening Ceremony’s sporty set or Preen’s fit-and-flare frock during a pre-match warm-up. Positively smashing.
