While we all are loving the warmer weather, its no secret that the January sun has bite. Stay sun smart (and stylish) in a wide brimmed hat like these from (L to R) Lack of Colour, Mimco, and Cozi by Jennifer Hawkins.

There’s always a time and a place for a good stiletto…but the Australian Open isn’t it. Keep it casual in simple, classic flats like these from Witchery and Seed Hertitage, or fully embrace the sports luxe look and opt for a trainer like these from Windsor Smith.

With sunscreen, schedules, tickets, and water bottles, a small bag just won’t cut it. Keep everything in check with a statement tote like the Wasteland by Status Anxiety, or with on trend rucksacks from ASOS and Mimco.

Every fashionista worth her salt knows the value of an on-trend pair of sunnies, so why would the dressing for the Aus Open be any different? We love the cat eye style from PARED, the ever-chic aviator from Ray-Ban, and the updated wayfarer from Triwa.

If last year is anything to go by, temperatures are set to soar during the open so your outfit will have to adapt. Opt for something jersey, or a cotton blend to beat the heat and avoid unnecessary creases. We love Staple the Label’s fine knit tee paired with One Teaspoon’s chic, summery Bandit denim shorts. Or, if you prefer something a little less casual, Seed Heritage’s wrap jumpsuit is court side ready.
