For this year’s Wimbledon tournament, we’ve teamed up with Karen Millen to deck out our hostesses in the perfect polished courtside look. Steal their style and ensure you look the part with this Karen Millen guide to acing your attire.
Nothing quite says ‘British Summer Time’ like a sun-drenched and star-studded tennis court – not to mention strawberries, cream and Pimms. Sitting outside all day in the height of summer, alongside an audience that’s peppered with royalty and Hollywood heroes, calls for maximum sophistication with a dash of practicality to ensure you stay cool.
While there isn’t a strict dress code for Wimbledon (unless you’re in the Royal Box or VIP suite) you’ll need to bring your sartorial A-game. Think optic white summer dresses, fluid city styles and show-stealing accessories that will amp up the courtside glamour.
Ace your summer style with a fresh, Bardot silhouette – the Boho Off-The-Shoulder Dress is just the ticket. Its shoulder-baring shape is perfect for showing off sun-kissed skin (just remember to bring the factor thirty!), while the black lace is a sophisticated finisher.
If you prefer to serve colour with your look, the Lipstick-red Embroidered Pencil Dress is a Wimbledon game-changer. Its intricate embroidered detail and body-sculpting silhouette is a winning combination, and when it’s teamed with the Suede Ruffle Sandals and white leather Brompton Clutch, there’s no competition.
For something a little different, draw attention with the Satin Khaki Shirt Dress, which offers an on-point approach to Wimbledon dressing. It’s cool, considered and completely simple – go for a no-fuss finish with the taupe Suede Lace-Up Sandals and a large leather tote such as the tan O-Ring Leather Hand Bag and you’re game, set and match.
