Strawberries? Check. Cream? Check. That famous red cocktail overflowing with fruit, cucumber and mint leaves? Check. Umbrella? Well… we’re hoping we won’t need one! Whether you’re planning on picnicking up on Henman Hill, or Murray Mount, hosting a barbeque with friends or have Centre Court tickets for the Wimbledon finals (you lucky thing), make sure you’re looking tip top with these tennis inspired menswear picks.

First to be served up is the slim fit Badged Grandad T-Shirt and the Breton Stripe Polo Shirt - both at £18. Made from 100% cotton, we love the vintage style embroidered badge as well as the retro red stripes and contrast trim on the polo.  Want a bit of British heritage too? This Joules Clyde Shirt is just perfect, coming in navy blue and crisp white with crest detailing.

A style staple for men this summer are Chino Shorts… At an ace… *ahem* £16, you can get these in an array of colours from pastel pink to plum, khaki to berry and lilac to stone. Mix and match your favourite colour with a light coloured or off white top with minimal stripes or embroidery to complete your sports-inspired look. With so many deep burgundy, navy and mustard shades available, not to mention the dusky pinks and pastel blues found in the menswear colour palettes this season, we suggest opting for one striking colour amongst neutrals or go for sand, stone or navy shorts.

Finish with a pair of espadrilles or boat shoes like these ones from Lacoste. The Glendon Espadrille, which also come in denim blue, are almost like a cross between canvas pumps and espadrilles, whilst the Maurice Espadrille, also in navy, is somewhere between a pump and a boat shoe.

The weather looks set to be a scorcher in the next few days (fingers crossed – weeks) though just in case, we’ve thrown some Blue Turn Up Chinos in the mix which you can turn up for more style points. Lastly, if you’re going to take an umbrella (everyone knows that the sun only shines when you bring one) then go for it in style – we love this Large Walker Umbrella with a navy and green tartan inner.

Now all that’s left is to don those Preppy Style Sunglasses and get ready to cheer… come on Murray!!
