Wimbledon whites and tennis-inspired fashion

Take inspiration from the courts of Wimbledon this summer as the 125th tennis tournament kicks off this Monday.
Every year we see new transformation of Wimbledon looks and with all the excitement building up in preparation for the notoriously intense competition, it’s only appropriate that the preparation of Wimbledon fashion begins.
Will the on-court fashion choices be surfacing in street chic? We think they already have, fashion inspiration comes from just about everywhere! At Debenhams we thought we’d get ahead in the game and select some tennis-inspired pieces you’ll love. With white fashion already making headlines this season as the must-do colour, it’s perfect to pick out a white summer dress like the Jonathan Saunders / Edition White Colour Block Tunic Dress pictured above, making sure you’re hitting two trends at once.
From our Edition collection, Saunders has created beautiful day dresses that will make sure you’re not ‘out!’ of fashion. Featuring tennis-friendly pleats, collars and subtle green and pale blue accents there are plenty of styles that give a nod to the traditional tennis look with a stylish modern twist.
If you’re heading down to Wimbledon why not pick up a Wicker Picnic Hamper from Debenhams so you can enjoy the only food appropriate, strawberries and cream all day long!
