Naomi Campbell And Mollie King Show Us What To Wear To Wimbledon

Fashion royalty, actual royalty and even Anna Wintour! Wimbledon has seen them all. So you can bet your bottom dollar that we were eagerly anticipating the style parade at this year's tennis tournament so what have we learned from the pros thus far?

DO crack out your short suit

Mollie King was the personification of spring chic when she rocked up to the tennis tournament on Monday. The Saturdays singer opted for a gorgeous short suit by Oasis worn with a buttoned-up white shirt and nude heels for that leg-lengthening result. The pretty florals keep the look feminine while the tailored shorts and jacket bring a unique spin on the usual Wimbledon fare. Top marks! 'Wimbledon is traditional you don’t want to be too revealing so this was a good mix as it's fun, but not overstepping the line,' Mollie told us.

DO accessorise with a dainty bag

Who better to take style inspiration from than a superdupermodel? Naomi Campbell wowed the crowd when she brought her A-list glam to the proceedings, but was careful not to go too glitzy in that supermodel style of hers. Instead, she looked ever so ladylike in a light blue fitted frock teamed with a black suede studded jacket - and it's her expert accessorising that has us most impressed. Peep toe heels? Check. Super cute purse? Check. Obligatory sunnies? Check check check! It's just enough to keep her on the right side of glam.

DON'T forget the blow dry

If there's one thing you need for a day at the tennis, it's a decent blow dry. Without K-Middy stealing their shine, the battle is well and truly ON and Pippa Middleton was a strong contender for tennis hair icon of the year on day one. BUT she was pipped (oop!) to the post by Kim Sears who was crowned Wimbledon watcher with the best tresses - see her best hair looks here. Soz, Pips.

DO colour block

Speaking of which, Kim's courtside style has had us nodding along heartily with her every outing. We've seen her colour blocking with ease thanks to a Zara blue blazer worn over a blouse with a bold orange stripe down the centre and the next day, she rocked a sunny yellow dress by Ted Baker with a denim jacket. Both ensembles have been topped off with Mulberry bags. Well played, lady.

DO embrace your girlie side

Wimbledon is all about looking well-coiffed and ladylike, but not flashy. And who better to show us how it's done than the ladies of Downton Abbey? Laura Carmichael and Michelle Dockery ditched their ‘20s gear and opted for charmingly feminine frocks - an Erdem printed dress for Laura paired with black sandals and a classic pink and white buttoned-up number with simple flats for Michelle. Delightful!

...but DON'T fall into matron territory

The high neck, the collar, the gathering around the bust? It's all too much, Holly Willoughby.

Finally, DO bring your mates

Because when the tennis gets dull, what could be more fun than a pose-off?
