The 14 days when all eyes are on SW19 have finally arrived. Surely the most glamourous sporting event in the UK, Wimbledon is as much about what the spectators are sporting as the sport itself. Heading there yourself? Here’s how to pull off Wimbledon dressing with flair.


CENTRE COURT


If you’re heading to Centre Court, you'll want to look effortlessly put together, without any indication you’re trying. Think light-coloured summer suiting in creams, light blues and greys. Go for a subtle, heritage check and tone down the smart level by switching your shirt for a slim-fit white tee. Alternatively, play with your pairings. Team your neutral suit jacket with navy trousers and a spotted tie, or a pastel pink or sea green blazer with dark chinos and a white shirt and leave your tie at home. When it comes to your footwear, pick Oxfords, suede Derbys or loafers.


ON THE GROUND


Got ground tickets? You can afford to have a bit more fun. A short-sleeved shirt in a ditsy print teamed with chinos or white jeans – a la Joe Swash last year – and loafers will get you on the best dressed list. Otherwise, go for that failsafe combo of mid or long tailored shorts and a striped tee. Keep it suave though – Pimms and baggy sweats don’t mix so well.


GAME ON


If you’re going to be dabbling in a little tennis yourself, go for signature whites. Channel Lacoste, Fred Perry or Bjorn Borg – all founded by tennis legends who are sure to help inspire your A game. From the strawberries to the aces, there’s so much to look forward to. We’ll see you courtside…
