What the Best-Dressed Celebrities Wore to Wimbledon
England’s biggest tennis match welcomed some Grand Slam looks. Here's how to copy them.
Wimbledon may be over, but the outfit inspiration will live on for weeks to come. As the tennis event of the year, the prestigious British sporting extravaganza reliably draws big stars, and by extension, big fashion moments. And this year did not disappoint. A-list guests arrived in a series of polished, and sometimes subversive, takes on traditional preppy style. Some trends to come out of the affair? Monochromatic colour palettes, reimagined suits and, unsurprisingly, a sea of quiet luxury.
Below, we present the best outfits of the season, plus how to achieve them yourself.
Instead of serving sporty vibes, the singer went viral over the weekend for her refined minimalist ensemble. While sitting in the crowd, she embodied the overcast weather of the London locale in a tonal grey cashmere sweater and matching flared skirt from Ralph Lauren. She finished the look with a Wimbledon baseball cap and a pair of avant-garde Loewe heels for an elevated take on tennis match fashion.
Get the look:
Take a page from Grande’s book and opt for an all-grey A-line silhouette for your next tennis match. May we suggest this pullover design by Mango? It has a ribbed fabric with a subtle flare skirt that hits the ankle just so — making it the optimal cozy-meets-chic option for any court-side viewer.
These days, slightly weird footwear is always in season, and these toy pumps by Loewe fit the bill like none other. With a lustrous finish, a square-toe design and a sculptural heel, they are key to modernizing an otherwise old-school preppy ensemble.

We love a high-low queen! While the singer went luxury with her footwear, she chose beloved (and accessibly priced) Canadian jeweller Mejuri for her earrings, wearing a pair of gold vermeil and freshwater pearl hoops.

A must when watching any outdoor match, the humble tennis cap communicates that while you may be fashionable, you also know sports. This unisex design comes in 14 colours, but we suggest opting for white to emulate Grande’s crisp styling.

No one does Wimbledon dressing quite like Kate Middleton. With her signature polished tailoring and streamlined silhouettes, the Princess of Wales embodies the formal daywear dress code of the world famous event. This season, she stood out in an assortment of green ensembles, including the Roland Mouret emerald dress with playful pleating she wore on July 16. Always thoughtfully accessorized, she completed the look with square shades and a pair of Gianvito Rossi suede heels. Sure, it may seem like a daring footwear choice for an outing involving grass, but if anyone can make it work, it’s a seasoned on-the-court attendee like Middleton.

There is so much possibility in a midi dress. The devil is in the details with this fresh green design, which features flutter sleeves, front-and-centre ruching and a subtle back slit. It may not be an exact replica of Middleton’s get-up, but it achieves the same thing: innovating a tried and true silhouette. Not to mention the fun colour.

These pointed-toe stilettos come in a leather lining and a soft-pink suede outsole. With a 3.25-inch heel, they’ll take you from work to a patio to — if you’re wild like Kate — a tennis court. And they’re on sale.

The high socks. The brown leather loafers. The billowing, boxy silhouette. At Wimbledon, Emma Corrin’s outfit took the traditional aspects of preppy attire and reinvented them. The actor, who identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, pulled up to a tennis match on July 6 in a pale yellow oversized short suit by Ralph Lauren with a Miu Miu handbag and pair of sunnies. Debuting a bleached buzzcut and playing with oversized proportions, their androgynous take on the classically masculine style was the perfect play on Wimbledon tradition.
Get the look:
Take it from Corrin, everyone needs a summer suit. This set by Aritzia melds the oversized comfort of the actor’s Wimbledon ’fit with polished tailoring for everyday wear. The single-breasted blazer features a notched lapel, pockets and structured shoulder pads, while the high-waisted shorts offer an elastic waistband and a gloriously wide-leg fit.
We know, we know. Socks? Trust, when you’re looking to perfect the art of the androgynous suited sets, they make the outfit. These high-rise dress socks by La Dearchuu are made with premium cotton and provide breathability for hot summer days. Plus, they come with six pairs!
Looking chic from head to toe, British model Jourdan Dunn put a summery spin on the minimalism of the moment in a yellow-on-yellow ensemble. Sporting a Ralph Lauren cable knit crewneck, a lightweight satin skirt and pair of white open-toe pumps, her street style-worthy look was the perfect balance between being weather-minded, tennis-appropriate and just plain cool.
Get the look:
With the iconic Ralph Lauren design, this crewneck has added shoulder button-up detailing that makes it feel fresh. With classic ribbed cuffs and a relaxed fit that subtly hits the hips, it is the only sweater you’ll actually want to wear in the midst of high summer temps.
This maxi skirt is not only alluring because it reminds us of lemonade, but its flowy terry fabric is extremely versatile. Made with a subtle waist-accentuating fit, it takes you from the beach to a seat on A-list-filled bleachers.

The slip-on kitten heel is a summertime saving grace. This white square-toe pair by Tony Bianco is great for day or night, thanks to its elevated buckle detailing and timeless design. Wear it with a breezy suit or style it with a vibrant monochrome skirt set, à la Jourdan Dunn.

Who doesn’t appreciate a commitment to linen? At the men’s singles final match, the Bridgerton actor sported a breathable three-piece Purple Label design by Ralph Lauren (notice a theme?). In a sea of other neutral menswear suits (as seen on Andrew Garfield and Nick Jonas), Bailey stood out thanks to his jacket’s interesting tie-up detail, his perfectly anonymous sunglasses and his sheer giddiness sitting alongside Wicked co-star Ariana Grande (see below).
Get the look:
Eyewear protection is key for outdoor sports spectatorship. Sticking to Bailey’s Ralph Lauren theme, this pair comes in a gradient gold-to-brown lens that’s ideal for a summer day. Plus, they’re prescription-friendly!
These tailored linen pants are the embodiment of quiet luxury. With a concealed front fastening, refined straight-leg cut and mid-rise fit, they’re both breezy and professional. In the heat of the summer, they’re sure not to overheat you — and that’s a selling point in and of itself.
