So yes, Wimbledon is technically a sporting event, but that doesn’t mean spectators can slacken in regards to courtside attire. There is champagne there to be had, after all. In fact, the UK summer event is one of those occasions that has an established yet oft-unspoken style code.
The key to mastering high-calibre Wimbledon style in the vein of Pippa Middleton and Kim Sears is to keep it smart, simple and subtly sporty. Think classic colours and sharp tailoring with contemporary details. Whether you’ll be attending Wimbledon with a date or in a group, we’ve picked our ideal Wimbledon outfits for him and her.
Our guy’s look starts off with a universally dapper combo – the white shirt and blazer. We love this grey linen version from Raging Bull with Jeff Banks’ classic fit shirt. Next, Regatta’s beige shorts are the epitome of smart-casual while nothing says summer quite like an old-school boat shoe. This blue suede pair from Maine New England is a men’s summer style staple that will reap style rewards long after the event is finished.
Our look for her centres around this elegant lace-insert playsuit from Warehouse which goes perfectly with Clarks’ chunky, mid-heel sandals - ladylike and ideal for day-long wear. We love how this sophisticated tote from Parfois combines summery neutral hues of beige and straw. The roomy interior guarantees you’ll be able to fit all your courtside essentials. Oversize aviators from Givenchy, the Kardashian-Wests’ favourite design house, complete the look.
