Nabbed tickets? Here’s what to wear.

Britain’s most prestigious sporting occasion is world-famous for its stylish fans, so what should you wear if you’re lucky enough to have nabbed tickets this year?

There’s no strict dress code unless you’re in the Royal Box or VIP suite, but as a spectator, it’s only polite to nod to the grandeur of the occasion. Best leave your comedy tennis whites at home, then, and instead aim for a look as immaculately presented as the club’s famed grass courts.

Of all the quintessentially British things that are associated with Wimbledon, the unpredictable weather is up there with Pimms, strawberries and All England Club ties.

With the way summer’s going so far we never know what July will bring, but we’re hopefully things will brighten up. Regardless of the weather, though, Wimbledon can be a great opportunity to dress up. In short: if you were waiting for a moment for a bold suit, this is it. We suggest a double-breasted suit with an airy shirt and lightweight loafers for the full A-lister-in-the-Royal-Box look.

For a mid-smart alternative, a sky blue linen suit will look sharp on a grey day as well as keep you cool on a hot one. Wear yours with a polo shirt in cooling pique-cotton – the original performance fabric – as a practical nod to the sport at hand. Add a pocket square and a classic pair of sunglasses for a faultless finish.


If you’ve not managed to get your hands on tickets this year, you might be meeting up with friends to watch the matches on a big screen. If so, we suggest an outfit in neutral tones as a summery take on smart/casual. Try a pair of chinos or shorts with a classic polo and a pair of smart trainers.

And even if you’re only watching along at home, it’s still worth a little effort. A linen blend t-shirt with tapered linen joggers is a notch up from your usual at-home kit but just as comfy.
