You’ve got your ticket in the ballot (yay!), Pimms is on ice and you can’t wait for a big bowl of strawberries and cream. But what to wear? If you’re looking for Court 1 chic you’ve come to the right place. This outfit is all about looking as glam as Kim Sears whilst being practical about all those all important Wimbledon essentials.

Since SW19 is set to be a scorcher this fortnight, a floaty maxi dress is just the ticket. Remember YOU don’t need to wear 90% white so how about embracing the boho-seventies trend with this gorgeous geo print number. Team with versatile tan accessories and soft leather sandals for ultimate comfort. (Stumbling over in the strawberries ‘n’ cream queue because your stilettos are too high is never a good look!)

Remember, you’re only allowed one 40cm x 30cm bag per person so leave the cool box at home, and opt for a practical tote. Coming in at 27 x 35cm, this one is perfect for getting in all those essentials. Alternatively, you could take a soft picnic bag – this one will fit all your personal items, plus food, drink AND a picnic blanket if you’re planning to sun it up on Murray Mound!

If the sun does go in, pack a light cover up just in case. We love this Linen Mix Cardi as it’s light and airy, not to mention a zesty colour for summer! Don’t forget that suncream either… Did we mention the sun’s out?

Complete the look with an oversized floppy hat and diva sunglasses to prevent excessive squinting. You never know, you might feature in those Wimbledon highlights!

Geo Maxi Dress £50 | Wedge Sandals £45 | Linen Mix Cardi £24 | Tote Bag £34 | Luxury Floppy Hat £18 | Cat Eye Sunnies £45  | Brass Honeycomb Necklace £24
