I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to a glorious day of Summer tennis with some fab friends. I’ll bet you thought the first things I thought were…

“I wonder who will be playing…”

Ahhh no.

“Champagne and strawberries, how very delightful…”

Maybe a little bit…

WHAT THE HELL DO YOU WEAR TO THE HOPMAN CUP?

Bang. On.

I know I’m not the only one who views every event, no matter how casual you think it may be, with a bit of style trepidation.

Did I go home and Google “tennis style”,  “how to be stylish at the tennis” and  “tennis crowd style”…?

Damn straight I did.

To save you from sheer style panic and give you full advantage of my solid four hour Google-a-thon and the Pinterest hole I fell down; these are my top style picks to be a fabulous tennis-watcher…

Nicole is a rare mix of glitz and pragmatism. She loves redefining her style and has an unhealthy obsession with lipgloss, Rag & Bone and champagne. She makes party planning look effortless and when she's not blogging or researching something she's spending time with two rather rambunctious redheads, Max & Charlie.
