It’s *officially* Wimbledon season!
Yep. It’s the time of year when we get obsessed with all things tennis, Andy Murray and strawberries and cream.
(That last one isn’t just us, right?!).
We all love watching Wimbledon on the television, but some of you will be lucky enough to be heading there this summer to see a match or two in person.
If you’re one of these people, there are a few essentials you’ll need to remember to bring. Get your pen and paper ready…
One of the most important things to think about is what you’re going to wear. Wimbledon is known for chic dressing, with plenty of white pieces, classic tailoring and elegant accessories.
We’ve found a few designs on the high street that perfectly fit this description.
Just take a look at Topshop’s lacy tunic. While its monochrome pattern is totally sophisticated, the fluted sleeves give a nod to SS15’s 70s trend.
If you’re not a dress girl, your best bet is a pair of printed trousers and a smart top.
River Island’s floral cigarette pants are summery without being over the top, while Zara’s loose-fitting silk shirt will flatter all types of figures.
But it’s not all about fashion. You’ve also got to think about keeping safe in the hot weather.
Make sure you bring a sun cream with a high enough SPF for your skin. A straw hat is also a sensible option to avoid any risk of sunstroke.
If you’re heading to Wimbledon without a ticket, you’ll need to keep yourself going while enjoying the action from Murray Mound.
Pack a cool box with plenty of food and bring a picnic blanket to relax on. Don’t worry! You can get both of these in cute patterns.
Read on to see everything you’ll need for a day at Wimbledon…
At Wimbledon, it's all about chic dressing. The monochrome print on this Topshop tunic is totally classic, while the fluted sleeves provide an on-trend 70s touch.
When you’re out in the sun, it’s essential to keep yourself protected. Make sure you bring a large bottle of sun cream with an SPF suitable for your skin.
Straw hats are so Wimbledon, dahling. Boohoo’s pork pie design will look cool *and* ensure you don’t run the risk of getting sunstroke.
Didn’t manage to actually nab Wimbledon tickets? Don’t worry – you’ll have just as much fun on Murray Mound. Come prepared by packing your lunch in a cool box.
We love that this one comes in Breton stripes.
These New Look shoes will help you nail two SS15 trends at once – a low block heel and white straps.
Fancy a break from the action? Pop to Starbucks for a drink from their delicious Frappuccino® range.
Want fewer calories, different milk or extra toppings? It’s likely possible as there are thousands of ways to customise your icy treat.
You’ll need a roomy bag to carry all of your things. H&M’s orange shopper will add a splash of colour to a plain ensemble.
If you’re not a dress girl, a smart top and trousers combo is the way to go. Zara’s loose-fitting shirt will look gorge on all figures.
Trousers will be the most comfortable thing to sit down in all day, especially if you haven’t got a proper seat. The floral pattern on River Island’s pair is super-summery without being over the top.
If you’re on Murray Mound, you’ll want a picnic blanket to relax on. Luckily, there are plenty of cool designs on the high street.
You'll want to keep your make-up topped up throughout the day.
Powder is the easiest way to keep your face shine-free. Plus, L'Oréal's compact comes with a handy mirror.
Sunglasses are so important in hot weather. The tortoiseshell pattern and rounded shape of ASOS's pair give them a real designer edge – despite being just £12.
A statement necklace is the most simple way to liven up your outfit. Oasis’s metallic piece will provide just the right amount of glitz.
