HOW TO PERFECT YOUR TENNIS SEASON OUTFITS
By Frankie Peach – https://frankiepeach.com
The city of Melbourne will come alive when the world’s elite players flock to Australia for the chance at glory for two weeks of action-packed tennis. The Australian Open offers a truly unique experience to the Australian sports culture, an event not just for avid Tennis fans but a must attend of the season.
With on ground energy that is impossible to match and an array of sporting elite, celebrities and socialites, there are few sports, as stylish as tennis. Here are our top tips for the perfect tennis ensemble both chic and comfortable for those long, hot, sunshine filled days.
First, to ensure that your day is enjoyable, stylish and comfortable we recommend aiming for smart casual style, think fresh colours, neat and tidy style with minimal fuss then accessorize with a Frankie & Peach scarf to complete your look.
For keeping cool and looking chic courtside, it’s all about mixing different textures. A loose fitting linen dress will keep you cool and is the perfect fabric to match with your silk scarf. Casual, but still polished!
While at the tennis you want to be comfortable. By teaming your sneakers with a touch of silk you are instantly elevating your look from sporty to sports luxe.
Knowing Melbourne weather, it’s going to be hot! If you have long hair, it’s best pulled away from your face. Tie your scarf around a ponytail, thread it through a plait or tie it around a top knot for a sophisticated and finished look.
Instead of wearing a bracelet, tie your scarf around your wrist. It’s cool-girl approved and the perfect accessory to your Aperol Spritz (and oh so Instagram-snap worthy!)
If you are still a newbie to the scarf game, we still love to see it tied around your bag. Such an easy trick that instantly adds a dash of colour and/or print to your ensemble!
Now, it’s just not the tennis without an Aperol Spritz, and there are two exclusive Aperol activations at the Australian Open this year. In between matches, unwind and discuss the day’s play in Club Aperol’s newest location at Grand Slam Oval- The Aperol Beach Club or at Aperol Spritz Garden Square’s classic outdoor lounge. It’s the perfect location to enjoy an Aperol Spritz and Aperitivo snacks with friends.
Aperol Spritz have collaborated with Frankie Peach to create a limited-edition collection of silk scarves to celebrate the season – keep an eye out for how to win them on @aperolspritzau
