Nothing quite epitomises the British summertime like Wimbledon, England’s most prestigious sporting occasion. The tennis may be the main event, but the fashion steals a lot of the attention.
While there isn’t a strict dress code for Wimbledon (unless you’re in the Royal Box or VIP suite, then it’s no trainers, please) the attire is sophisticated, and many famous faces dress up to the nines.
If you’re flocking to the courts next month to spectate the tennis, Pimms in hand (of course), take some style tips from 9 Wimbledon-veterans who have aced the fashion game.
1. Wear bright colours like Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton has the best dress wardrobe we have ever seen, so it's no surprise that she nails Wimbledon-style every single year. Take inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge and go for a bold and bright midi dress, and keep the accessories to a minimum.
2. Stay chic like Sienna Miller
Sienna Miller has always been our style icon, and she definitely wins the award of 'most chic' Wimbledon-goer. Remember to team your look with some statement shades, not just for style purposes but for sun-protection...
3. Be sophisticated but glamorous, å la Victoria Beckham
Fashion mogul Victoria Beckham is another example of great Wimbledon dressing. Her look may tad on the fancy side but she has perfected the sophisticated-glam balance, sunnies and clutch bag in tow.
4. Nail smart casual like Irina Shayk
New parents Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper are regular Wimbledon-attendees, and Irina always opts for a smart casual get-up. Team your favourite jeans with a crisp blazer or choose a smart shirt dress/jumpsuit.
5. Opt for prim and pretty like Keira Knightley
Keira Knightley's Wimbledon dress is perfection: simple and understated but far from boring. Team a long dress with a low-hanging cross-body bag to balance out the look.
6. Go girl-next-door-cool like Meghan Markle
Meghan Markle's Wimbledon looks have been low-key but stylish. A midi wrap tea dress is breezy in warm temperatures and flattering on most, and as you will be watching tennis all day in the height of summer, incorporate a hat and sunglasses into your look to avoid any chance of sun-stroke...
7. Go for florals like Pippa Middleton
8. Stick to Wimbledon whites like Lily James
9. Olivia Palermo knows an all-black look always wins
Olivia Palermo has mastered the art of dressing for any occasion, and her Wimbledon get-up is no exception. We're especially loving her day-to-night heels.
