Next week I'm off to Wimbledon and am in outfit planning mode for one of my favourite days out of the summer. Tenniscore is still a key trend, so I'm sure they'll be plenty of preppy staples and all-white looks on display. I might nod to the trend, but I'll be opting for a more classic take on tennis dressing with a shirt dress or polished tailoring. One thing you can pretty much predict will happen at some point during the afternoon is rain. So I'll be taking my trench just in case. This double breasted classic from & Other Stories fits nicely oversized with storm flaps front and back and perfectly compliments my Fendi cat eye sunglasses and clutch bag. Read on for my other outfit inspiration.
