Game, set and match
Posted on June 28th, 2012
Yep, it’s that time of year again—Wimbledon season is upon us. If you’re heading off to Centre Court, Murray Mound or even if you’re watching from the comfort of your own home it’s time to get your fashion choices sorted, leaving you ready to watch those must-see matches in style.
If you want to rock the Wimbledon trend, you should be aiming to keep it cool and smart/casual but with a distinctly British vibe. Men can’t go wrong with the preppy look—think neutral trousers, a white shirt and a casual jumper/cardigan or lightweight coat to throw over your shoulders, and top it all off with a traditional yet stylish straw hat. Women should opt for a classic, elegant look, with mid-length dresses and beautiful accessories being the order of the day.
It’s all about flying the flag of British style, so keep it quintessentially British and you really can’t go wrong. Oh, and if you haven’t got one already, it’s time to get a Perry purchase pronto. Not only is Perry a Wimbledon legend but his clothing brand celebrates its 60th anniversary this very year (it was launched in 1952 dontcha know), and these days the line offers the perfect mix of vintage style with a modern twist. It’s a must for anyone looking to take centre stage on the court this year.
With the right fashion choices at your side you’ll be able to dazzle onlookers and could fool anyone into thinking you deserve a place in the Royal box. Even if our England hopefuls don’t get a shot at the tournament it doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t fly the flag for Britain, so get your white shirts out, your strawberries and cream at the ready and your Pimm’s chilling—it’s time for Wimbledon!
