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’s a fashion catastrophe.
Some people go in shorts and tennis shoes, some bust out their golf gear and some think it’s Maya at midnight and go all out in stilletos 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 in mind The Open is a daytime
drinkfest golf event so please, try daytime appropriate clothing. Think layers and things that transition well from day to night because mornings and evenings will be cool but the daytime is pretty warm.
Here are a few fun and fashionable ideas on what to wear to the Waste Management Phoenix Open 2019. I hope these help, and I hope you enjoy the Open!
What to Wear to the Waste Management Phoenix Open 2019
It’ll be cold in the morning but let me tell you, it gets sooooo hot in that afternoon sun! Layer with a cute cardigan and lace cami like this one. It’s one of my go-to outfit ideas for a reason–it just works!

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. I’m currently loving these Marc Fisher Wedges (seen in the first photo) as they’re crazy comfortable.
It’s a sporting event, so 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.

Grab a Maxi Dress
You pretty much can’t go wrong with a cute maxi, and a chunky boot like this one that won’t sink into the grass. 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!
Cuffed jeans are cute, casual and totally practical for this daytime affair. I love this look on Livvy Land where she cuffs her jeans and pairs it with one of this season’s tie-front tops. You could also do this with a pair of cute ankle boots.
Shop the Look
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 one and it’s under $100. You could just as easily style it with sandals or wedges.
The shirt dress is a great go-to for casual outdoor events. You can easily layer with a cardigan or cropped jacket if you’re going to the Open in the morning when it’s still cold. Cute sneaks, flats or a chunky boot will get you through the day in style.
Phoenix Open Purse Rules
Ladies, leave your big bags at home! You’ll have to take a small cross-body or clutch that’s under 6x6x6 to abide by the rules.
Go to sporting events a lot? Amazon actually has clear crossbody bags that are stadium approved! They’re under $15, too, so you can hardly go wrong!
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!
