What to wear to Wimbledon??

Jump to last reply

Okay, I guess this question is a bit tongue in cheek given all the abuse the fashion conscious have been getting here on Fodor's lately, but my husband challenged me, "post it on Fodor's" and I said, "you don't know how crazy people there get about 'what to wear' posts!"

Anyway, looks like I'm going to be a 'hostess' for a Wimbledon private event for my husband's company. I'm not a huge sports fan, but I actually do like tennis and so I agreed to tag along with my husband who loves and lives for tennis. He's been sending me everywhere I want to go all year, so the least I can do for this sweet man who asks so little of me is to show up, be charming and look good. I asked if he could go alone, but he actually needs a wife to do this. So nice to be needed;)

But, OMG, what do I wear? Since it is a company event and mostly client attended, some men actually will come in suits and ties although the dress code says "business casual". I think suits are a bit much for a tennis event, although last year's host did wear one, but I want us both to strike the right balance.

I'm thinking a light-colored pants suit and nice scarf with smart shoes and some nice jewelry for me, and dress slacks and button down oxford shirt and maybe a knit sweater for my husband or perhaps a sports coat. My husband looks good in most things, but I'm not so great in dresses or skirts. I'm short and have a figure, so the pants are usually a more attractive look....I'd like a small heel on the shoes but not old-ladyish or too sandally... any ideas there?

We will attend a private lunch and dinner, as well as watch tennis. The event lasts all day. I'm thinking we can take the jackets off for tennis and have them on for greeting and dining.

If you hate these questions, no need to answer. If you love fashion, or have attended Wimbledon for a corporate event, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

thanks!
