The US Open stage has always invited progressive design packaged in superior performance wear, fitting for the world’s fashion capital that hosts the season’s final Grand Slam.

Marija Zivlak of Women’s Tennis Blog will show us the best outfits debuted at Flushing Meadows this fortnight.

Naomi Osaka’s elegant articulation of a modern bodysuit enriches women’s tennis fashion with artistic edge of Japanese designer Chitose Abe and her Sacai label that is famous for hybrid experimentation and attention to detail.

The WTA World No.1's custom outfit brings a futuristic twist to Nike’s athletic pedigree.

Depth, dimension and asymmetry work together with Dri-Fit fabric to make a unique marriage between sport and couture.

Osaka’s style captivates with a plethora of details in the cut and texture. It combines layers, ruffles, cutouts, color-blocking, mesh, and zippers in an eccentric way that brings a fresh perspective on performance apparel.

Coco Gauff (Jimmie48 Photography/WTA)

At first glance, the print of Coco Gauff’s New Balance Fall Rally Print Tank and Skirt looks like a tile or window pattern, but it’s actually an aerial view of public courts throughout New York City. 

What’s so great about this print is that it celebrates tennis and the tournament’s host city, without being too obvious.

“A lot of other brands will reference New York City, but it’s more with a skyline, more with things that are kind of predictable,” said Chris Olberding of Gitman Bros., whose line, Gitman Vintage, worked with athletic apparel company New Balance on the US Open collection.

“I think this is a real tennis player’s tennis kit.”

The teenage phenomenon personalized her shoes by writing “Call me Coco” in black marker, as a nod to New Balance’s campaign that celebrates the 15-year-old’s fast-established name on the world tennis scene.

Every Maria Sharapova’s Grand Slam dress is an art piece that could very well be worn on a special occasion and those tailored for night sessions in New York have always been exceptionally glamorous.

The NikeCourt Dri-Fit Maria Dress is made from breathable fabric accented by mesh at chest and upper back. Stretchy jersey has a textured look and feel that enhances airflow. The dark color (color gridiron) is highlighted by an orange back zipper that makes the dress easy to take on and off.

Caroline Wozniacki (Jimmie48 Photography/WTA)

Caroline Wozniacki served style in a tight-fitted adidas Fall NY Tank combined with a pleated vibrant green adidas Fall NY Skirt.

An open hole mesh overlay gives a multidimensional silhouette to the solid black racerback tank that is made from moisture-wicking, soft fabric. The skirt’s glitch print is inspired by the Big Apple's streets.

Kristie Ahn (Jimmie48 Photography/WTA)

Eleven years after making her US Open debut, American Kristie Ahn advanced out of the first round of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career and drew attention to her mesh-paneled print technical jersey tennis dress by Lacoste.

Contrasting slanted finishes merge with the neon-accented geometric pattern of this sporty classic. Fishnet mesh V-neck, feminine skater cut and elasticised mesh band create a perfect on-court look.
