It’s that time of year again – strawberries, Pimms, sunshine and sports. The 2015 Wimbledon season is in full swing, and if you’re lucky enough to be going or to already be sitting in the stands, you’re in for a treat. But what’s a girl to wear to an event like this?
Wimbledon players must wear almost entirely white clothing (not off-white or cream!), with only a single trim of colour allowed around the neckline or seam, up to one centimetre wide. Caps, headbands, bandanas, wristbands, socks and even shoes should all be almost entirely white. If a player’s underwear can be visible while they are playing, that must be white, too.
Luckily spectators don’t need to adhere to such strict dress codes! You can generally wear anything you like, but bear in mind the weather forecast – a summer dress will be very appropriate, but you may want to take a cardigan or jacket with you in case you’re sat in the shade or it happens to rain.
You don’t need to get too dressed up for Wimbledon, but it’s an exciting event so if you feel like buying something new for the occasion, you definitely should! We’ve put together a few ideas for you from our selection of day dresses:
