A First-Rate Frock
To get match-ready and stand among the tennis tournament's most stylish attendees, you'll first need to zip yourself into an elegant summer dress, one that'll keep you looking and feeling good, no matter how long the match lasts (the longest in Wimbledon history is 11 hours and five minutes). As a statement-maker that’s bright and brimming with 60s spirit, La DoubleJ's Mini Swing Mezzaluna Dress, £490 treads the line between form and function, so is a winner in our eyes.

A Medal Worthy Hat
When the British weather isn’t being, well, truly miserable, Wimbledon’s courts can be real suntraps. So, if you don’t want to emerge back onto southwest London’s streets pink all over, it’s essential to seek protection underneath a hat. Loewe's Anagram Bucket Hat, £375 is the one we'd strongly recommend for this year’s matches.

When trying to get a good look at Djokovic's serve (or more likely, craning your neck to see who’s sitting in the royal box), the last thing you want is to be blinded by a bright ray of sunshine. That’s why you'll want a pair of sunglasses that elevate your outfit. A brand that never fails to deliver on this is Fendi. Before heading off to the courts, take the label's O’Lock Square Sunglasses, £360 with you; wearing them, you’ll never miss a match point.

When deciding on the perfect bag to take with you, size, shape and shade all need to be carefully considered. Something too big and impractical will make you feel clumsy, but something too small, and you’ll have nowhere to store your handheld fan. Liberty's Iphis White Heddon Cross-Body Bag, £295 is just right.
