Game, set, and match! What to wear to Wimbledon
Whether you’re lucky enough to be watching Andy Murray from the Centre Court, or from the comfort of your own home – one thing is for certain, you can’t beat that Wimbledon excitement. This year the quintessential British summer event has arrived in style, with celebrities and sports fans alike hitting the courts and the front pages of style magazines with ease. So how can you ensure that you’re dressed to impress for an event like Wimbledon? We’ve taken a look at some of the ultimate do’s and don’ts of the tournament along with a quick showcase of our favourite courtside style icons.
Do: Keep it smart
It’s important to look your best, whether you’re representing the style elite over at Centre Court or chilling out on Henman Hill (if you’re watching from the sofa, feel free to stay in your sweatpants!) A light shirt, ideally linen, paired with a smart blazer is the perfect Wimbledon look. Navy has always been a popular choice and a look at we often see the A-List sporting as they take in the day’s events.
Get the look:
Don’t: Be a player
Tennis whites and branded sportswear should stay ON the court, wearing it as a spectator goes against Wimbledon style etiquette.
Do: Stay Polished
We’re not taking about your manners and social graces, (although when mingling with the elite it is wise to say please and thank you as you collect your Pimms) instead we’re on about footwear! Dress shoes are ideal for Wimbledon, think brogues or smart loafers in classic shades that have been polished to perfection.
Don’t: Flash your feet
Under no circumstances should flip flops be worn to Wimbledon. Keep your feet under wraps to avoid committing a cardinal style sin. As with other sportswear, trainers should also be left at home.
