The 7th day of Wimbledon is traditionally middle Sunday, where there is no-play unless in the event of extreme weather conditions. We are now into the business end and as the tournament heats up, so do the style stakes. On this Sunday evening, if you are lucky enough to be heading to Wimbledon in the coming week, it's a great time to get your wardrobe Wimbledon ready with some key menswear pieces from Debenhams to keep you cool and stylish in the sun.
Avoid upsetting the Wimbledon style police this year and leave your ripped jeans and longline t-shirts at home. This is London and of course the weather is always a little unpredictable but it can also get very hot as temperatures rise on and off court. So when you are picking what to wear, light colours, linens and lightweight blazers are 'advantage you'. Jeans, ripped clothing, vests, jogging bottoms and overly bright colours are most certainly 'break-point'. Chino trousers and linen fabrics can keep you cool and most importantly stylish through the day then layer with a blazer for evening play.
At Debenhams, they offer an extensive menswear range dedicated to upgrading your wardrobe with Wimbledon in mind but clothing that you can also style-up in general this summer. For my personal Wimbledon whites style edit, I have chosen to wear a pair of smart, white belted canvas shorts by Jasper Conran paired with a crisp, white, tailor fitted shirt. I've kept my blazer choice to a neutral tone in a single-breasted design. I've accessorised with a Fred Perry barrel bag and clean white trainers, although for a smarter look, a pair of blue or brown loafers would be a perfect doubles pairing.
