Wimbledon Whites: The Best Dressed on the Court

Putting together a best-dressed list that covers the fashion at Wimbledon is a little more challenging than your average event because the dress code is so strict.

Wimbledon requires all of its competitors to wear an outfit that’s predominately white, so while Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams were able to sneak in little pops of color with their matching tangerine shorts (weird coincidence?), that was about as wild as it got during the past few days at the All England Club.

Some might consider an all-white ensemble to be a bit boring, but for Wimbledon I like the tradition and I think it’s worth keeping. Let’s take a look at what the ladies wore this time around.


Caroline Wozniacki from Denmark chose this classic dress designed by Stella McCartney.


Maria Sharapova always looks great on the court. She went with this perfectly fitted Nike tennis dress, but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to get her past the early rounds of play.


Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland mixed up her tennis whites with some navy stripes in this Lotto dress, which is a pretty popular look since it’s so flattering on a variety of body types.


There is no way I could leave out Serena Williams, who is thinking about starting her own nail salon, post tennis career.


I didn’t see a lot of collared looks at the All England Club, so I thought we should give a shout-out to Chinese player Li Na for mixing it up.

I don’t know about you, but these classic looks have inspired me to try a little harder the next time I step onto the tennis court. I think I may pick up a little Nike tennis dress this weekend and see who is up for a game!

Who do you think looked best dressed on the court at Wimbledon? Are you kind of bored by the mostly white outfits? What do you wear to play tennis?
