The tennis may be over for another year, but Wimbledon’s fashion legacy is longer lasting. Seen as a barometer of summer style, Wimbledon provides lots of ideas and trends that we should all take note of. Here are our favourite three.

Summer brights

Following in the footsteps of her new sister in law, Meghan Markle, who wore a similar colour last week, Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Wimbledon wearing a vivid yellow dress by Dolce & Gabbana. And if it's good enough for royalty... You know we'll all be wearing this eye popping shade in the weeks to come.

Masculine influences

Proving that sharp suits aren’t just for the boys, Emma Watson turned up to Wimbledon wearing a cream three-piece linen suit by Ralph Lauren. High-waisted trousers, a waistcoat and a well-cut jacket ensured she looked cool, calm and collected.

Meanwhile Stella McCartney opted for utility-chic in a masculine jumpsuit by her own label, complete with double zipped front, and Meghan Markle - also in Ralph Lauren - teamed her wide legged trousers with an oversized man’s shirt.

Bold patterning

Anna Wintour certainly knows a thing or two about fashion, so it pays to pay close attention to what she is wearing. Famously a huge fan of Roger Federer - she attends most of his matches - Wintour arrived wearing a bold graphic-print mid-calf dress, which she teamed with a statement necklace and her favourite Manolo heels. With a strong pattern and a no-nonsense shape, this is power dressing in its most stylish form.
