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…
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.
