If there’s one event that truly marks the beginning of the British summer, it’s Wimbledon. Tennis whites, strawberries and cream, Pimm’s, and of course the anxious wait in anticipation to see if Andy Murray will once again take the Wimbledon crown; it’s one of the most British activities of the year.

Wimbledon is the perfect time to get dressed up in your smartest spring/summer outfits too – think feminine dresses in fresh blues, whites and pastels for women, and a relaxed summer suit for men. Of course, an outfit isn’t an outfit without the finishing touches, so we’ve lined up our favourite bags to wear to Wimbledon.


Aspinal of London Marylebone Tote – Deer Brown, Aspinal of London Marylebone Tote – Burgundy, Aspinal of London Marylebone Tote – Monochrome

Take a leaf out of Princess of Wimbledon Kim Sears’ book and take a big, structured tote to the tennis. This classic style is perfect for Wimbledon, plus the big size is perfect for packing all of your daily essentials. Kim is rarely seen without her Aspinal of London Marylebone tote – we love it in deer brown or monochrome for a similar look, or pair an all-white look with the burgundy version for a slick, minimalist look.



Karl Lagerfeld Seventees K/Bonjour Clutch, Rebecca Minkoff Leo Clutch, Ted Baker Lyric Hinged Corner Clutch

If you don’t want to take a big bag, a clutch is the perfect alternative. It’s neat and sophisticated, and will look great with a smart summer dress. We love these classic styles from Ted Baker and Rebecca Minkoff, while this Karl Lagerfeld clutch will be a fun, quirky addition to your outfit.
