It only seems like yesterday we were all gathered around large screens erected in city centres nationwide, lounging on the colourful deck chairs provided by local councils watching Wimbledon.
My favourite part of the Wimbledon tennis championships each year is of course the stylish designer fashion we see wafted in front of us through the many celebrities who attend. All donned in their luxury designer outfits ready to subtly impress in their court side chic. Tailoring, floaty light dresses and adding stunning accessories to finish off those outfits is a must.....I am already missing it.
If you want to Channel Wimbledon courtside chic but don’t have celebrity paycheck ........do not fear you can recreate this year’s popular styles by buying similar items and designers second hand. Here are some of our favourite fashion edits from past and present year’s court side and how to grab that style but at a much more affordable price tag.
I think one of the most photographed styles and one of my firm favourites was from Wimbledon 2018, the new Duchess of Sussex who’s simple pinstripe shirt and cream trousers style was so simple yet very effective. The pale blue pinstripes where used again this year by Sabine Getty who wore a loose fitting pale blue pinstripe trouser suit. To channel this pinstripe style we have a stunning lightweight cotton skirt by Paul Smith, perfect for the scorching heat but stylish, match with a cream or white top and you are Wimbledon Courtside Chic instantly.
Buy our pinstripe Paul Smith skirt size 10 second hand for just £45 to steal that Wimbledon court side style.
Another cute option to wear could be our Diane Von Furstenberg cream pinafore dress to fully immerse yourself in the classic Wimbledon white fashion trend which returns year after year. A few celebrities mixed it up and deviated from the classic white uniform of years gone by and decided to wear black or navy like Poppy Delevingne.
Buy our preloved Diane Von Furstenberg white pinafore dress size 10 for only £55 to steal the Wimbledon white style.
Another enviable item worn by many are the shoes. whether it’s T bone heels, a quirky sandal or a stylish trainer the footwear is always up to par. Our Wimbledon favourite footwear style was worn by the ever coveted Alexa Chung. In 2012 she was seen wearing a funky pair of sandals 👡 to pep up her plain navy dress, then last year 2018 she sported a pair of casual trainers keeping her pleated dress and cardigan combo nice and relaxed. To grab Alexa’s footwear style you can find affordable options from our website below. We have some super chill navy Lacoste trainers and some amazing unworn Stella McCartney cloud sandals.
If trainers and flats are not your thing you can opt for a more glamorous footwear option. You only need to add a stylish block heel and ankle strap combo like Sally Phillips or sexy stiletto strapped sandals like Claire Foy or Katherine Jenkins. Take a look at our similar stylish pre loved options. We have a fabulous glittery brand new pair of Stuart Weitzman block heel sandals, and a brand new pair of grey stiletto Burberry sandals all pre owned but a lot more affordable.
So now you are all set to keep Wimbledon style going for just that little bit longer, but for a much lower budget and still be Royal Box worthy.
