What to wear to the Waste Management Phoenix Open is easily one of my favorite posts of the year.
If it’s your first time going, or you need a bit of a refresher, you’ll definitely notice that the Phoenix Open is one of those events that can easily be a fashion catastrophe.
Some people go in shorts and tennis shoes, some bust out their golf gear and some think it’s Saturday night at W Scottsdale and go all out in stilettos and little black dresses. (Not kidding.)
To be honest, it’s one of those events where fashion watching for disasters becomes a total spectator sport. And, oh yeah, I guess there’s an actual sport going on too–hah!
So what should you wear to the Waste Management Phoenix Open? Is there a Waste Management Open Dress Code?
Well first, keep this in mind:
The Open is a daytime golf event so stick to daytime-appropriate clothing.
Think layers and things that transition well from day to night because mornings and evenings are cool in Arizona but the daytime is pretty warm.
Here are a few fun and fashionable ideas on what to wear to the Waste Management Phoenix Open 2024.
I hope these tips help, and I hope you enjoy the Open!
What to Wear to the 2024 Waste Management Phoenix Open
A Cute Tennis Skirt or Tennis dress
If you’re looking for something comfortable, sporty and feminine, try a cute pleated tennis skirt like this one.
I recently wore this as my theme park outfit to Sea World and layered a tank under this top.
I love that it has built-in shorts and a tiny pocket in the back where you can slip in your lip gloss, especially since you’ll be limited on the purse you can bring.
A pair of white sneakers is right on trend and comfortable as the Phoenix Open does require quite a bit of walking. This look is definitely more on the casual side but a cute option.

A tennis dress would also be a cute yet casual option. It’s a fitting golf event outfit and you likely already have on in your closet!
Layer with a crop jacket as it can be chilly in the morning.
A Cute Jumpsuit + Jacket
Last time I went to the Phoenix Open I wanted to be comfortable so I threw on a cute jumpsuit, a little leather jacket and my Gucci sneakers.
You can’t go wrong with a black jumpsuit and this one from Abercrombie (on sale!) is my current favorite. In fact, I bought it in multiple colors!
Layer with a denim jacket, leather jacket or a cute teddy jacket that’s cropped so you can easily tie around your waist as the day gets warm.
Again, you can keep it cute yet comfy with a pair of sneakers.
Wedges That Are Actually Comfortable
Need some height? Go with wedges, not heels. Even if you plan on staying out until dawn for a party in the Bird’s Nest.
Wedges are great because you can lengthen your legs without worrying about heels digging into the grass.
It’s a sporting event, so you can keep things casual in some cute distressed denim. And yes, you can wear white before Memorial Day in Arizona! It’s warm enough that those old-school fashion rules just don’t apply.
White Sneakers + Tank Dress
The white sneaker trend is here to stay, friends! And what better time to wear it than at the Phoenix Open?
If you’ve never been before let me tell you, there is A LOT of walking involved. So I’m super happy sneakers are back and in style!
Style them with a cute tank dress like this and a shacket or jean jacket.

For a CRAZY comfortable pair, I love these OnCloud sneakers. They’re stylish and feel so light and airy!
Grab a Maxi Dress
You pretty much can’t go wrong with a cute maxi, and this one is super cute and comes in several colors. Wedges, sandals or sneakers all work with this look!
I love how the slit gives this maxi dress some sex appeal and a cute hat is a must for keeping the sun’s rays off you!
Need a good one in a pinch? I love this Maxi dress from Amazon, knotted at the bottom, which is pretty much a dupe of the one pictured above.
This sleeveless one is another great Amazon maxi, and they both ship fast!
Try a Shacket
If you want a more casual outfit idea, try a shacket like this one over your favorite pair of faux leather leggings.
Grab Your Black Onesie
The black romper was a major moment in 2023 and continues to be so in 2024!
It’s cute and comfy and trendy, so ticks all the boxes. Layer it with a denim jacket or your favorite shacket for a stylish yet sporty look.
Wear Spring Colors
We are in-between seasons at the moment so layering is key. If you don’t want to look like “fall” go for some light spring colors.
Finish the look with a pretty light blue cardigan for some color.
Go for a Cute Romper
A romper is so fun and playful, it’s a perfect outfit for the Phoenix Open! I am loving this white romper, which also comes in beige. This can easily be styled with sandals or wedges.
Here are some other cute rompers that would be perfect to wear to the Open:
Try a Skater Skirt
Skater skirts are one of my go-to outfits basically year-round. They look great with sandals, wedges or sneakers and there are so many ways to style them!
I own this one in two different prints and style it with a halter crop top, lace cami or a bodysuit.
Don’t forget to layer some shorts under your skirt!
A casual dress with combat boots is a cute outfit idea that’s both comfortable and on-trend. Style this simple look with some cute, chunky gold jewelry.

Your Favorite Casual Dress
This tie-waist dress has been a bestseller and would also be a great outfit idea for the Waste Management Open. Swap out the ankle boots for a pair of sandals or white sneakers.
This button-down tie-waist dress has been another bestseller. Style it with white cowboy boots, which are on-trend and perfect for Arizona’s spring weather!
What’s more, they’re trendy, yet comfortable. Perfect for a day of walking around at the Phoenix open.

In the past, I’ve taken my Louis Vuitton clutch, which can also be worn cross-body.
Remember to leave food and drink at home, too. There’s plenty there though, so you shouldn’t have to bring any with you.
Personally, I love to go in sundresses. They translate well from day to night and won’t stick to your legs like jeans. I’ve made the mistake of wearing leggings in the past and trust me when I say, you’ll be the only one in them!
