This week marks the start of the most talked-about event in the tennis calendar. Whether you’re watching Wimbledon, taking a trip to the seaside or relaxing in the garden, we’ve got plenty of winning ways to make the most of the great British summer. Inspired by the crisp, timeless appeal of All-England Club style, menswear editor Ian Wright serves up a pristine white polo shirt to keep you cool as temperatures rise, while womenswear editor Charlene Barton selects a chic striped dress to see you through the season. Kids are catered for too, with a sweet pair of dungarees that are perfect for outdoor play. Our edit of the latest lingerie looks is bursting with colour and pattern, from delicate floral prints to dreamy blues and greens – or go for a shot of coral with a bold bra picked out by the Observer’s fashion editor Jo Jones. We roll out the red carpet for a fruity rosé wine produced by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Miraval estate in the south of France, and celebrity tanning guru James Read reveals a fast, foolproof way to fake a natural-looking glow. All that remains is to sit back, relax and soak up the sun – and Elle Decoration magazine’s Jackie Daly recommends an on-trend indigo-print deck chair as the ideal spot to do it. Just add sunscreen and shades.
Nothing says ‘Great British Summer’ quite like Wimbledon. And don’t worry if your backhand still needs a bit of work; you can always serve up some winning style by wearing the box-fresh colour palette of champions. Whether you’re channelling a minimal, sporty aesthetic with sleek white denim and a bomber jacket for pesky passing clouds, or basking in the sun in crisp linen, you’re guaranteed to dazzle the competition with an all-white ensemble. That’s your summer wardrobe sorted – game, set and match.
