The Davis Cup 2016: What to wear to the tennis

The Davis Cup 2016 what to wear

The Davis Cup 2016 will return to Birmingham on 4th March, giving us a fine chance to dress up for what is considered one of the most historic sporting events of all time.

From patriotic displays of national pride to a selection of fashion favourites sitting court side, it can be difficult to know how to appropriately dress for such an event. Despite wanting to dress in your tennis finest, remember that you’ll be cheering from under the shelter of the Barclaycard Arena, so probably not a great idea to come sporting your entire winter wardrobe…

The Davis Cup 2016 what to wear

So what do you wear if you’re looking to purchase some of the best seats in the house?

Wimbledon Debenture Holders specialise in knowing everything there is to know about the championships and give us their dos and don’ts to make sure you win fashion gold at the Davis Cup…

1) Ditch the heels

Yes, they may be your go‐to choice when it comes to getting dolled up but trust us… this is not the occasion for fancy footwear. The chances are you will be walking and standing most of the time, as you wait in line for your seat. You can still look your best in a pair of fabulous flats, wedges, sandals or trainers. Just make sure you are comfortable, as the last thing you want is a burning blister to distract you from the main event ‐ ouch!

2) Brighten up your look

If you love nothing more than a pop of colour to liven up your look, this is one for you. Try styling classic shades of red, white or blue with a neutral colour to give your clothing a patriotic twist and make you stand out from the crowd.

3) Gloves, scarfs and a coat are essentials

It’s worth considering just how cold you may feel when leaving the arena. A big, fluffy coat and gloves are sure to keep you protected from the chill of a bitter cold winter’s night.

4) Sport your tennis finest

What could be more fitting than a fabulous printed shirt with your favourite player on the front? Give our champions something to work towards and show them you are right behind them! This is sure to give you the competitive edge and put you ahead of the adoring fans sitting courtside.

5) Don’t forget your blazer

If you’re looking to stay at the top of your fashion game, nothing spells classic tennis‐chic like an incredible white blazer. Whether you’re looking for a seamless transeasonal transition with the finest leather look, or a more casual style, you can’t go wrong with a well cut blazer.

    I love tennis but have never made it to an actual match, I always have to settle for watching it on TV. Some great tips for what to wear though! #justanotherlinky

    Have a great time, I am sure you’ll look fabulous whatever outfit you choose. I think flats sound like a must, nothing worse than painful feet! My parents are obsessed with Wimbledon and I was made to watch it every summer, unfortunately that has resulted in me hating the sport..sorry! Have fun though.

    Thank you so much for linking this up to #KCACOLS. Hope to see you again next Sunday x

    Good tips. Gone are my days of thinking heels are suitable for sporting events. I much prefer a pair of flats 🙂 #KCACOLS

    Natalie, this sounds like it would be a ton of fun! I think watching the people would be as much fun as watching the match! If I’m lucky enough to attend I will definitely take your advice! And while I’m there I’ll stop by and see you adorable home myself!

    Ooh I didn’t know it was in Birmingham! I used to follow tennis -it’s the only sport I like – but have lost track in the past few years (clearly!) I like your fashion tips, but I would recommend a cute & stylish babygro in order to avoid being upstaged if the Murray baby turns up! 😉 #KCACOLS

    Bahaha, as it happens, I was there yesterday with my daughter and watched the Murray Boys come home! I was wearing Nudie jeans and penny loafer shoes with a pink and white Ralph Lauren shirt and cotton/linen blend blue jacket from the Celio* Club range (should you be interested). #TheList
