Now we're a week into Wimbledon and the festivities are in full swing; we've got the go ahead for keen weather watching, strawberries and cream, plenty of Pimms and, of course, a spot of world class tennis. So, what to wear to this stalwart of the summer sporting calendar? The tournament never fails to draw a stylish crowd, from Hollywood celebrities to royalty, so to help you keep up, here's our edit of style essentials.
In the Bag
Whether you're setting up camp for premium seats on centre court, or rushing up to cheer from Henman Hill, a day at SW19 is usually a long one. From sunglasses and sun cream, to water, tickets and queue cards, you need to go prepared. Our Midi Marylebone Tech Tote is perfectly poised to accommodate all of your Wimbledon essentials. In fact, Kim Murray has been spotted with her own Marylebone year on year; this time around Kim has sported our cooling Teal Croc Marylebone, testament to its versatility and practical appeal.
If you're leaving the day's supplies to someone else, the Pegasus Shoulder Bag offers a more petite alternative. Crafted with clean lines and a spacious accordion-style interior, the tennis white tone will temper summer florals and colour pops or couple effortlessly with neutral hues. This statement buckle is calling out to be accessorised with a few well placed gold accessories.
A Hint of Print
Liven up your look with a silk scarf. The bold blooms of our Bouquet of Flowers Silk Scarf will elevate crisp whites and subtly accent blossom pinks and soft blues. More than a pretty detail, it will double as a chic cover-up in a cinch. Fold it in half corner to corner and drape it over your shoulders when those rays of great British summer sun streams down onto the courts.
In very British fashion, seasoned Wimbledon-goers know to prepare for all conditions and an umbrella is a must for all. Elevated above a mere practicality, our Ladies Marylebone Compact Umbrella makes tackling inclement weather an exercise in style thanks to its stand-out geometric motif. The satin finish canopy will keep you dry under even the most dramatic downpours, while the compact size allows you to slip it into your handbag when the sun returns.
Keep your change handy and your tickets safe by adding our Zip Top Coin and Card Purse to your repertoire. Crafted from beautiful peppermint leather and lined in suede, the zip pouch gives you easy access to coins and notes when it's your turn to take a trip to the bar. Not forgetting your precious tickets, the multiple pockets provide the perfect place to store them so you can be sure you know exactly where they are.
When the practicalities are taken care of, it's your cue to uplift your outfit with some fashion-focused detailing. Put a contemporary spin on your look and accessorise your summer dress with our Cleopatra Cuff Bracelet. With its striking python print leather inlay, this cuff keeps in mind this season's hottest animal print trend. All the while its muted tones and hints of white make it easy to pair with everything, from the bold, to the understated.
