2016 Australian Open: Best and Worst Dressed in Melbourne

As the 2016 Australian Open rolls into the meaty part of the tournament, it's a good time to look at the fashion hits and misses. Who wore what best...or worst?

Players seem to wear the brightest and most colorful outfits at the Australian Open. Hot pink, bright yellow, cool green and neon orange prevailed over darker hues. 

In terms of patterns, stripes trumped florals, which were all the rage two years ago. 

The top players, like Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic, have the sweetest clothing contracts. However, that doesn't necessarily translate into the best style. In fact, sometimes elite players take an active role in creating their looks, demonstrating why they are tennis stars and not fashion designers. 

Still, some of the game's icons know what looks best on them. This includes Maria Sharapova, who once again wore one of the more flattering designs. 

Sharapova's dress landed among the best because the color, style and fit are first-rate. It's that total package, from sneakers to headgear, that defines what's best or worst.  

Those who made the worst list failed to pull it off or put it together. They either went big and landed flat or pushed the fashion envelope into the fire. 

Did your favorite player make the cut? Find out here in this year's list of the best and worst dressed at the Australian Open.
