26 Ways To Ace A Preppy Summer Sports Look

Anyone for tennis? Ahead of Wimbledon, we don our freshest sporty looks for the season. Game, set and match.

The freshly mown grass, the pock-pock-pock sound of improbably long rallies, the measured tones of the commentators and the thrillingly nail-biting intensity as the rounds go on: nothing says summer quite like Wimbledon. The championships may not be going ahead this year, but we vow not to let any unforced errors through on the sartorial front at least. It’s time once more to don your best sporty, preppy gear and head out to the courts (tennis was, after all, made for social distancing). Alternatively, just grab some strawberries and watch the virtual coverage (more likely) while looking the part. Here are twenty-six ways in which to nail the look; after all, you can always work on your crosscourt backhand later.
