Wimbledon Whites: Yogi Footwear Edition
What is Wimbledon?
The Championships, Wimbledon, more commonly known as simply Wimbledon, is the oldest, and often regarded as the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world. It was established at the All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) in 1877 and it was first televised by the BBC on 21st June 1937.
What is the dress code?
The official dress code for the current Wimbledon tournaments is reminiscent of the standards set in the Victorian era, when players wore white for propriety's sake because it was believed that white showed less sweat. More recently, the dress code now forbids players to wear any non-white clothing that could become visible during movement, lighting or perspiration. Apparently, the dress code for players is that strict that players need to ensure that their underwear is white enough.
Whilst there is no official Wimbledon dress code for spectators, there are a few forbidden choices - so leave your ripped jeans, running vests and sport shoes at home. If you're lucky enough to be visiting Centre Court for the important games, then be sure to make sure your outfit is more refined. Men usually wear fashionable suits and ties, while women wear white or summery dresses. Think outdoor summer wedding and you'll get it right.
