THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO DRESSING FOR WIMBLEDON
You'll want to hear these Sante + Wade tips to ace Wimbledon style.
Strawberries and cream, frothy champagne and fluffy green balls. It can only mean one thing. Wimbledon. Is. Here.
Every year, during the first two weeks in July, all eyes are fixed on this corner of South West London, home to the oldest and most prestigious tennis championship in the world.
The tournament attracts royalty and celebrities, avid sports fans and enthusiasts from around the country, many of whom don't actually give tennis a second thought for fifty weeks of the year!
Over the fortnight, these supporters arrive in their thousands, camping overnight, outside the All England Tennis Club for the chance to catch a glimpse of the likes of Serena Williams and Roger Federer, gladiators of the sport.
How to Ace Wimbledon Style
The focus is always on the matches and there are strict dress codes for the competitors. Crisp tennis whites are mandatory but some players still manage to make some bold sartorial choices despite these constraints.
For spectators, the dress code is pretty relaxed but it is still a brilliant chance to dress up. It’s not Ladies Day at Royal Ascot – so keep those fascinators in their boxes, but a hand-held fan and sunnies are an absolute must.
If you want to stick to the theme of Wimbledon whites, then we’ve got the right footwear options to match.
Dress from the feet up with Sante + Wade.
Our Amma slide, crafted from the softest nappa, with a gold-toned eyelet and natural raffia braid is perfect teamed with linen trousers or palazzo pants. (Straw hat and chunky earrings are optional).
Pair our Nakia sandal with a floaty midi or maxi dress. Made from butter-soft nappa, with a delicate orange patent leather binding, this block heel sandal serves up height and comfort for a chic courtside look.
Nothing makes a statement like a statement heel. Elongate your pins with the Mori pump in white and orange patent leather. Wear tailored trousers with a high paper bag waist for an elevated but relaxed finish.
White can be a tricky colour to pull off, but at Sante + Wade we’ve got you covered
