Heading to Wimbledon this year?
This post may be a little premature, but since living in Wimbledon, I can't wait to head down to that centre court.
I teamed up with Daniel Footwear who are going to share with you the best footwear pieces to wear to the matches.
The iconic tennis tournament returns again this summer; Wimbledon takes place from 3rd July until 16th July 2017. Most of us will be tuning in with a glass of Pimms in hand to watch favourite Andy Murray compete for his third title.
Not all of us are lucky enough to grab a ticket to watch the tournament in person, but for those who did, how do you nail the perfect outfit? It’s one of the summer’s biggest event, so what should you wear?
Wimbledon was always known for its strict dress code, but in recent years, this has become it has been relaxed. We aren’t saying you could rock up in your ripped jeans and old trainers – but you no longer need to stick to a strict code.
It’s safe to say Wimbledon oozes the smart casual trend, effortlessly bridging the gap between laidback looks and formal attire. It a trend loved by tennis WAG royalty Kim Murray and famous attendees like Sienna Miller.
While nailing the smart casual look, practicality is a big deal too. After all, you can never predict the British weather.
For cooler, overcast days, turn to tailoring – trousers and a lightweight tailored jacket are a great combination. Wear a thin, sleeveless blouse or vest underneath on the off chance the sun makes an appearance and you’ll be prepared for any weather.
But, if you’re lucky enough for the forecast to be in your favour, summer dresses and tailored shorts are perfect for keeping you cool, while also keeping with the smart casual dress code. Don’t forget a light cardigan or jacket for when the sun sets or hides behind the clouds.
As you’ll most likely be seated for the majority of the event, you can take your pick from a variety of styles – although we recommend staying away from sky-scrapping party stilettos. Stick to a mid-height pair like these Stuart Weitzman Studyhall mules:
Of course, heels aren’t an essential at Wimbledon. You can opt for a flat pair of summer sandals instead. Try to avoid casual flip flops and choose something like these Stuart Weitzman Student flat mules. They ooze glamour with the flat shoe an added comfort.
Stay away from any flamboyant accessories – whilst sun hats are high on trend, they can obstruct the views of others behind you. Stick to a trusty pair of glamorous sunglasses. They’ll shade your eyes from the sun so that you can catch all the action on the court.
