Wimbledon is fast approaching. Unlike most of us who will be watching the action unfold at home, some of us are lucky enough to have bagged tickets to the world’s oldest and arguably best tennis tournament.
The action begins on 3rd July 2017 and runs until 16th July 2017—giving you just a few months to sort your outfit. Obviously, with the eyes of the world watching, you’ll want to look your best in case you make any unexpected TV appearances.
In the past, Wimbledon’s dress code was well-known for being strict. It has relaxed in more recent times—yet we still have the dilemma of what to wear. To help, retailer of Melissa shoes, Daniel Footwear, has created this guide to dressing for Wimbledon.
Smart casual is a must for Wimbledon, so leave your trainers and ripped jeans behind. A perfect outfit option would be trousers and a tailored jacket, worn with a flowy blouse, if the weather is overcast.
Of course, if it’s sunny — like it often is for the tournament — sundresses, tailored shorts and lightweight tops will be the order of the day. Don’t forget a cover-up for when the day starts to cool!
With most of the day spent courtside, it’s great news for your feet! Whether you fancy heels or flats, anything goes, as you’ll do minimal walking. Sandals — whether heeled or flat — will be perfect, as they’re in-keeping with the event’s smart-casual vibe.
Sitting in the sun all day, you’ll likely assume that you’ll need a sunhat—think again! The large, floppy hats may be on-trend, but at Wimbledon, they’re a big no-no. After all, how would you like it if you missed Andy Murray’s victory because of someone’s oversized accessory?
Instead, keep it simple and chic with a pair of sunglasses. They’ll stop you squinting and will help keep your attention on the on-court action.
