Wimbledon requires a stringent white look, but the Princess of Wales showed off an ’80s-inspired look on the sidelines.
An avid tennis player herself and an AELTC (All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club) patron, Kate Middleton attended the second day of the tennis tournament, showcasing her 80s style in a pastel green Balmain blazer and a preppy pleated skirt reminiscent of Princess Diana’s style. She paired the jacket with a white midi-length skirt and Gianvito Rossi pointed-toe heels.
Completing the look, Kate accessorised with her go-to pearl drop earrings by London-based independent jewellery brand Shyla, a gold Sézane cuff bracelet and a white Mulberry Amberley crossbody bag.
Wimbledon’s consistent demand for all white clothing has, however, given birth to the tenniscore fad, a street style trend that combines modern-day fashion with nostalgia. It features separates like mini skirts, cable knit sweaters, loafers, and tube socks in white. But like the Princess of Wales, you can always add your personal touch if you’re not a fan of micro-minis.
