How to ace the Wimbledon Dress Code by Naomi Isted

by Naomi Isted

Watch tour video featuring celebrity stylist Naomi Isted as we look at some of the key trends this summer season and all your “dos” and “Wimbledon’ts” as Kim Sears, Pippa Middleton, royalty and Hollywood celebs get set to ‘take their seats’ over the next couple of weeks

It’s one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, synonymous with strawberries and cream, Pimm’s drinking and traditional English summer style. Despite the strict dress code being slightly relaxed in recent years there are expected requirements in place when it comes to Wimbledon attire, with smart clothing regarded by many as part of the experience.

Protocol for the royal box is a simple one; dress code is smart, suits/jacket and tie for the men and for the ladies likewise smart attire is a must and ladies are asked not to wear hats, as they tend to obscure the vision of those seated behind them.

And while players on court need to keep to an “almost entirely white” dress code, luckily for many spectators there are less restrictions but that doesn’t stop people wanting to dress to impress, whether they are supporting on Murray Mount or Centre Court.

There are some key trends this summer to look out for including ruffles, floral print and summer pastels. So watch our video featuring celebrity stylist Naomi Isted who has teamed up with Süüna Sunglasses at the Istituto Marangoni to talk us through some of the hottest trends for the season and offer some great tips and inspiration for all the ladies and gentlemen of SW16.

Thai dress of royal endorsement

Thailand has a strong heritage of national costume which has a history going back to the 13th century. Formal Thai costume, known in Thai as Chut thai phra ratch niyom which literally means Thai dress of royal endorsement , consists of a number of different designs that are primarily intended as national dress for formal occasions. These set of designs where conceived during the 20th century by Queen Sirikit who recognised a need for a officially decreed modern national costume which represented the tradition, culture, race, and identity of the Thai people clearly. The queen undertook research into historical royal dress, from the Sukhothai period (1238-1247), Ayutthaya Period (1350 – 1767) and Rattanakosin Period (Founded 1782), which resulted in the creation of eight official designs that were used for the queen and her aides. These dresses have since become popular in Thailand and have become an icon of Thai Traditional dress for its people and the world. These dress designs usually consist of a sinh, a blouse and a sabai. A sinh is a full length wrap around skirt with two pleated folds in the front called na nang and Sbai is a piece of fabric, often made of silk, draped diagonally over the chest and one shoulder. These two garments are often combined with a silk blouse and worn in different colours and patterns for various formal and casual occasions.
