July is renowned for a number of things, from summer holidays and BBQ’s on the beach to music and food festivals, it’s always guaranteed to be a jam-packed month. But right now we only have one thing on our mind – Wimbledon. Whether you’re lucky enough to be attending the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world or you’re simply planning on celebrating it at home with loved ones, it’s the perfect opportunity to put on your glad rags and dress to impress!

For many years, the dress code at Wimbledon has been extremely strict, so rather than straying too far from the path we suggest opting for something classic, something you can’t go wrong with- A white dress. The key to perfecting the Wimbledon wardrobe is to keep things classy, don’t wear anything too tight or too short as this will attract attention but for all the wrong reasons! This off-the-shoulder lace dress from H&M is perfect for the occasion and will ensure you look sophisticated as well as stylish.

Besides the Wimbledon whites, there’s nothing more iconic about the sporting event than strawberries and cream, and we’re loving the idea of channelling this popular pastime into our outfits. If you’re fashion confident we highly recommend this sheer poppy print dress from French Connection. As always, floral prints are seriously on trend this summer, and together with the lightweight fabric and frills, this is the perfect summer daytime dress.
