From bright colors to fun patterns, here are the trends we’re spotting at the 2024 Australian Open courts.
As the first Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open is always the marker for a fresh slate in the tennis world. Here, players can leave 2023 behind and set the tone for the rest of 2024, and this year, they are doing so in style.
We’re noticing several fashion trends in this year’s highly-anticipated Australian Open. From vibrant colors to earthy tones, from trendy prints to subtle classics, it certainly looks like this talented crop of players is here to make an impression, starting from the moment they walk onto the court.
Yellow is the color of the Open
This isn’t Wimbledon. Players are not required to dress in all-white, and in the first Grand Slam of the year, it looks like they’re taking advantage of it. Many players have come onto the Australian Open courts dressed in bright colors, and one color in particular that seems to stand out is yellow — a great fit for the sunny days they’re all experiencing in Melbourne this time of the year.
So is green…
Yellow isn’t the only dominant color in the Australian Open, as many players have also been coming onto the court in different shades of green, whether it’s a deep emerald or a vibrant neon.
Prints are always in style
Though prints may seem to be more of a trend than a classic when it comes to tennis fashion, in truth, prints are always in style, and they are proving this at the Australian Open. Tennis players love a good print, and it definitely has the power to make them stand out on the court.
Classic neutrals with subtle accents
Of course, no matter what the trends are, there will always be players who opt for outfits that lean more towards the simple side, for instance, with neutral colors. But, that doesn’t mean they can’t still have fun with their looks. This year, even the players wearing browns, blacks, and whites have subtle accents of neon colors, just like these players, transforming a simple outfit into something dynamic and eye-catching.
