She Leads, You Follow: Wimbledon Edition

This year’s Wimbledon championships not only attracted some of the best tennis players in the world, but also some incredibly well-dressed guests.

The championships, which officially ends on July 12, has been graced with the attendance of several A-list celebrities, from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge William and Catherine to Hollywood power couple John Legend and Chrissy Tiegen. But despite the celebrities in attendance, THL has only been starstruck by the impeccable Wimbledon fashion.

The first Wimbledon attendee to catch our eye was Sienna Miller, who showed up to the semi-finals on Friday in an elegant white jumpsuit by Galvan. Miller doubled up on Alexander McQueen accessories, pairing her look with a McQueen tote as well as McQueen tortoise shell sunglasses, according to Vogue

While Miller kept it simple in a sleek white jumpsuit, People StyleWatch reports that Pippa Middleton opted for a printed Carolina Herrera peplum top with a matching cigarette pant to attend Thursday’s match. She completed her look with a black espadrille wedge, a cream colored clutch and classic aviator sunglasses.

Although you may not be attending a fancy sporting event anytime soon (don’t worry, we aren’t either!), there are some aspects of Miller’s and Middleton’s outfits that we can work into our own wardrobes.

  1. Jump into a jumpsuit – Jumpsuits are such an easy option, not just for the summer but all-year round. Similar to dresses, just put on a jumpsuit and you are instantly dressed. However, there are certain things to be mindful of when shopping for your perfect jumpsuit: first, make sure that the jumpsuit clearly defines your waist. This means looking for jumpsuits with obvious seaming or even a belt at the waist. Next, be sure to try on the jumpsuit before you purchase it, ensuring that the waist of the jumpsuit falls at your natural waistline (your natural waistline is the smallest part of your torso); this ensures that your legs look long because your legs will seem like they start at your waist, making you look taller overall. Finally, make sure that the jumpsuit isn’t too long; the last thing you want is material to be pooling around your ankles, as this can make your legs look shorter and reverse the illusion of a longer leg created by defining your natural waist.
  2. All-over prints are A-OK – Pippa Middleton’s all-over printed ensemble shows us exactly how to pull off such a bold look. First, she chose pieces in flattering silhouettes; remember, peplum tops are universally flattering, as they not only have the ability to define your waist and emphasize your curves, but also to hide anything you may be worried about in your stomach area. Her cigarette pants are tailored closely to her body, giving her a fitted, long and lean shape. Next, she chose a print that is proportional to her frame; at a tall and slender 5 feet 9 inches, she can pull off a small to medium sized print, and this white-on-black print certainly fit the bill. Finally, she kept her accessories simple, letting the print be the star of the show while her accessories played a supporting role; note that she opted for accessories in similar colors to those in her outfit and kept those accessories in solid colors. While you can add a pop of color to something as simple as black and white, make sure that you do not introduce another bold print to compete with the main print of your outfit. You can introduce another simpler print, however, so long as it is small enough to read as a solid color from a distance.
