Wimbledon Street Style: This time courtside!
It’s that time of year again, Wimbledon is here. Tennis enthusiast or not, there is a style to suit everyone. When we think of Wimbledon we think of punnets of strawberries and Pimms galore! (Oh and of course the tennis itself). So, the atmosphere is set, the tennis pros are at the ready, but there is still one thing we have to decide…what to wear courtside?!
Whether you are a hardcore tennis fan or perhaps you are going simply for the social aspect (and that’s fine too!). We have put together three simple looks inspired by Wimbledon street style.
Wimbledon Street Style?
What is Wimbledon street style? Ok, so we keep hearing this term being thrown around in magazines, the local papers, twitter and now it is about time we thought about what exactly that means…
Strawberries and Cream
This look is girly, cute and importantly playful. Choose classic styles and elegant cuts that frame your body type perfectly. A soft palette, such as peaches, blush tones and soft corals, gives a very girly feel to the outfit but will also suit fair and darker skin tones. Add a little zing to your outfit with cute accessories that are subtle but striking. Think understated glamour. Another option for this look, is to draw from vintage inpiration, so still very feminine but more quirky prints and florals. If you do take the retro route then we suggest a bit of red lippy to set of your look.
Fresh, minimalist and just damn cool. This look is easy to achieve and will keep you cool courtside and we mean literally (as white reflects the sun) and also the other way. Keep the base of your outfit white (a sort of canvas to build on) and then add flashes of metallic, so you will be twinkling in the sunshine courtside.
And…if you still didn’t find your perfect white dress for this look, then check out our White Dresses, we have literally dedicated a whole page to the cause!
This look is old school glamour with a good dash of fun! Go for chic and elegant pieces and funk it up with accessories. Skater style dresses and sleeveless are a good option for this look. It keeps the look simple and then you can build easily from there. So once you have chosen your dress then choose your accessories carefully, this is when it could be fun to think about adding other textures to your look. Remember though, if your dress has a loud print then focus on the material and colour of the accessories and vise versa.
