The U.S. Open tennis matches are this weekend’s hottest ticket.  For those lucky enough to make it to Flushing Meadows before the finals next Sunday, we asked our Chief Stylist Annie Ladino to weigh in on what to wear.  She’s been known to style beautiful player’s box regular, Brooklyn Decker.  Read on for a slice of Annie’s advice.

Although style and sports are not always synonymous, the U.S. Open serves as a fashionista’s alternative to the catwalks at Lincoln Center.   Dressing for this annual event can go two ways: courtside casual or powerhouse chic.

When opting for low-key comfort yet effortless style like U.S. Open diehards Cameron Diaz and Gwen Stefani, it’s all about layering.  Though fall is still three weeks away, when the calendar marks September, there always
seems to be a mass break out of knits and denim, and the Open is no different.

You’ll be on top of the fashion podium with these favorite picks layered over your go to tee:
