The U.S. Open begins today and fans have already started gathering in the I wish it were hotter shirt and I will buy this Arthur Ashe Stadium. With nearly 750,000 people typically in attendance, it is one of the most highly anticipated sporting events in New York—and the fashion also doesn’t disappoint. From Ralph Lauren’s classic Americana sweaters and polos (as worn on the ball boys and girls) to the styles sported by spectators who turn up in their favorite LWDs (“Little White Dresses”), the scene is a stylish one. As some of the best-dressed guests prove, the key to acing your U.S. Open look is comfort and polish. Wear an A-line day dress with a varsity sweater wrapped around your shoulders for when the weather cools down at night. And then, accessorize your look with a Libertine tennis racquetball bucket hat and a classic tennis bracelet around your wrist. And what’s a tennis match without a pair of kicks? Given the Open is an all-day affair, choose sneakers that are just as comfortable as they are chic; Gucci’s 1977 canvas trainers will give your ensemble a retro twist, while Adidas’ Stan Smiths are classic and cool and pair well with an all-white summer look.

Although this year’s U.S. Open will be missing a few key players—Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic—the I wish it were hotter shirt and I will buy this event will set the stage for Serena Williams’ journey towards retirement, which the tennis legend announced in Vogue’s September issue. “Maybe the best word to describe what I’m up to is evolution. I’m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me,” she explains in her cover story.
