What They Wore: Wimbledon

Friday, 10 July 2015

It’s that typically British fortnight of the summer. A glass of Pimms, maybe a spot of afternoon tea complete with strawberries and cream and a tennis match…or six hundred. I have to admit I’m not a big tennis fan. I don’t massively follow Wimbledon but you just can’t argue with the spirit that it brings. And I’m definitely not arguing with all of the chic outfits on display in the audience. Wimbledon calls for sophistication and maybe just a little summer playfulness and year after year celebrities don’t disappoint. Here are a few of my favourites from this season.

Pippa Middleton

Whilst the Duchess of Cornwall was fussed over in a red L.K.Bennett dress, looking effortless as always, younger sister Pippa just pipped her at the post. Middleton was totally on trend in this cute Caroline Herrera co-ord. Herrera apparently a favoured designer of Middleton. Co-ords premiered last summer and I will absolutely never tire of them. By opting for monochrome, one of my favourite S/S 15 trends, Middleton shows us that co-ords are adaptable to work with new trends. This peplum and trouser collab looked smart but her boho waves and plaited hair relaxed her look making it perfect for a day at Wimbledon.

Eleanor Tomlinson and Douglas Booth

Fellow actors Douglas Booth and Eleanor Tomlinson both looked polished in Ralph Lauren. Known for its sports fashion traits it's no wonder Ralph Lauren has been a clear choice for many attending Wimbledon. This vibe was seen in Tomlinson’s ivory dress which seemed to reflect a look not just off the courts but also on them. Booth looked chic as well in a beige pinstripe. The choice of colour brought a lighter feel to his dark trousers for summer but still looked smart. Both Tomlinson and Booth show that being understated doesn’t mean you won’t stand out.

Tanya Burr

Another outfit I just have to put in here is Tanya Burr’s. Beauty blogger and YouTuber Burr always looks stylish. I adore the Whistles’ skirt she sported at Wimbledon. A-line midi skirts have become really popular this summer, Zara being a personal favourite of high street stores stocking the style. Burr wore a floral print which looks great against the sunny Wimbledon backdrop. Her top was a simple Topshop piece with scalloped sleeves which worked well with her busy skirt. Burr opted for a lovely relaxed look with her hair, like Middleton’s, but of course it’s a glass of champagne that really finishes any outfit as Burr showed us.
