What To Wear To Wimbledon

Have you been to Wimbledon? I remember visiting the oldest tennis tournament in the world when I was in school. Taking place from 3rd July – 16th July 2017 this year it’s always great to watch, and let's hope Andy Murray wins his third championship title.


While the rest of us will be tuning in at home, you may have been lucky enough to grab a ticket. As well as packing your sunscreen, you’ll want to make sure you look good.

In the past, Wimbledon was known to have a notoriously stringent dress code. In recent time though this has become more relaxed with only fashion extremes like ripped jeans and dirty trainers being banned, and to be honest so they should be as getting dressed up for Wimbledon is half the fun!

To help you look your best, Daniel Footwear have written this guide to offer some advice:

Clothing





As we’ve already mentioned, there are certain pieces of clothing that shouldn’t be worn to Wimbledon. We suggest leaving your casual clothes in favour of a smart-casual look, as seen on famous Wimbledon attendees like Kim Murray or Sienna Miller.

Of course, being in Britain, you need to dress for the weather. If the weather is overcast, trousers and a tailored jacket is a great look. Wear a loose-fitting vest or top underneath the jacket, so that you’re prepared if the sun does make an appearance.

Thankfully, the weather is usually good for the tournament, with many spectators soaking up the sun as well as the atmosphere. If the sun is coming out to play choose clothing that will keep you cool like floaty sundresses, tailored shorts and lightweight tops.  Make sure you pack a cover-up too — a cardigan or thin jacket is great for matches that last long after the sun goes down.

Footwear



The great thing about Wimbledon is that you’ll do minimal walking. For many, this will offer greater potential in terms of footwear. If you are planning on wearing heels, choose a mid-height pair to remain in-keeping with the smart-casual vibe.

Sandals are the perfect choice for Wimbledon, although flip flops are a little too casual. Instead, wear strappy formal sandals — they’ll keep your feet comfortable and cool.

Accessories




Don't forget to put those perfect finishing touches to your outfit. Sat in the sun all day, you may be tempted to wear a hat. However, be careful that your hat isn't so big that it will block the view of the people behind you.

It's important to shield your eyes with a pair of sunglasses to protect them from the sun, so choose a stylish pair in a retro look to be sure you don’t miss out on any of the action!


Tell me have you been to Wimbeldon?
