From the 2ndto the 15thof July this year, the legends of tennis will descend upon London to battle it out for the coveted title of Wimbledon Champion. At the same time, the fashion elite will descend too.
The Wimbledon tennis tournament has almost become as much about fashion as it has about tennis (almost, but not quite). From royalty, celebrities and partners of tennis champions, to glamorous sports aficionados, the stands are often full of immaculately dressed guests. We’re hoping to take some style inspiration from the likes of impeccably polished Kim Murray (that’s if Andy plays); the ever stylish Duchess of Cambridge, and perhaps even the Duchess of Sussex whose paired back and minimalistic style of dressing would be perfect for Wimbledon.
Part of dressing to impress at Wimbledon is choosing your accessories wisely. Not only should they look fashionable, they should also be practical for a day out. To help you choose your outfit, our team of fashion experts have put together our top picks for accessorising that’ll ensure you look the part.
Complimentary Colours and Comfortable Heel Heights
Wimbledon is all about being classy and comfortable. Your shoes should complement your clothing to create a cohesive outfit, and they should also allow you to walk freely and easily, without any pain or discomfort.
For the ultimate dainty heel that echoes the floral, light nature of summer (the season of Wimbledon) we’ve picked our Meadow Misty Rose 4.5-inch heel as the ideal choice. In a soft rose shade, this hand-embroidered court shoe is made from comfortable kid suede, so you won’t have to worry about being on your feet all day. The finishing touches of Swarovski crystals on the soles add a simple touch of glamour to these shoes.
Beautiful, and Practical, Clutch Bags
Whilst Kim Murray is a fan of a larger tote bag at Wimbledon, we think that you can carry all of your essentials, and negate back pain, by carrying a smaller clutch bag. This is something the Duchess of Cambridge often does, and we believe it ties together her outfits perfectly. You can add an easy touch of opulence to your outfit with something like the Cinderella Opera Clutch in ivory. Pair with an all-white outfit or an elegant floral dress in a summery shade for a winning look. The silver leather trim and hand-embellished front with Swarovski Crystals and mirror glass makes this a statement piece perfect for such an occasion.
Make Your Style Your Own
The most important thing to do when accessorising for a day at Wimbledon, is to stay true to your unique style. Choose a colour palette that sets off your skin tone beautifully, and wear something that will make you feel truly fabulous. If you’ve found a pair of classic Emmy London shoes, but feel they’re a little plainer than you’d like, then why not attach a Blow Clip to make them more your own. Simple, chic and beautifully understated, these bows go perfectly with our Olivia and Poppy styles.
Don’t Forget Your Hairstyle
Your hair says as much about you as any other accessory you could wear. Make sure you’ve styled it in a way that reflects your personality – and remember it’s got to last you all day so hairspray is probably a must!
If you want to add something a little extra-special to your hair-do, but don’t want to go over the top, our Crystal Daisy Pins are absolutely perfect. These dainty little pins are made from crystal and milk glass, crafted into the shape of beautiful daisies. They look lovely with a relaxed wave or curl in your hair and are the perfect summer accessory for Wimbledon.
