Court on Camera: What to Wear to Wimbledon 2019

Posted by Hel and Mel | 30 June 2019 | Out & About, Style & Beauty, What's On

Whether you’re watching the action on Centre Court, on the green or in a Wimbledon Village pub, deciding what to wear to Wimbledon can be a challenging game. Hel and Mel’s tennis-tastic style guide will help you ace your look!

Wimbledon Whites

While it’s only the players that need to wear white, it’s a long-standing tradition for spectators to follow suit. White cotton dresses and tailored white suits are not only a great way to stay (and look) cool in the sunshine, they’re also a trending favourite among the A-List audience on Centre Court. Keeping it classic and chic: this is Wimbledon, not Love Island. We love this sweet broderie anglaise summer dress and off-white two-piece…

Feminine Frocks

Floaty maxi and midi dresses are an effortlessly cool and comfortable solution. Think English garden party with whimsical florals in soft pastels, or inject a modern twist with a pop of colour and a geometric pattern.

Heads Up

What’s more iconic at Wimbledon than a stylish straw hat? Channel Lady Wimbledon, keep your cool and look striking while protecting yourself from the sun – hats are the the perfectly light accessory to shade your Pimm’s under!

Keep The Rays At Bay

Chic sunglasses are key to nailing the look, so leave last year’s Aviators at home and pick up a pair of this summer’s hottest eyewear trends. Look out for black lenses and uniquely shaped, retro-feel frames: there are so many amazing styles to choose from, but we love over-sized, cats-eyes, triangle and heart shapes – check out these amazing Cartier shades, or if budget is tight, these pretty pastel pink peeper protectors…

Fancy Footwork

Long Wimbledon days involve a lot of fancy footwork, even off-court: comfy wedged espadrilles or trainers are a good way to go if you don’t fancy wearing heels. Stay stylish on the run between courts with a pair of fabulous Air & Grace sneakers. Kate and Meghan have been breaking protocol in their ‘casual’ wedge heels this summer so be sure to join the game and score a fashion ace with this look…
