Center court credentials: LUXOS' style predictions for Wimbledon '14

As the well-heeled and well-blowdried decend on SW19, Luxos predicts Wimbledon's 2014 style.

Tennis season is finally upon us once again, and with the vats of Pimms and punnets of strawberries comes the most elegant WAGs in the sporting world. Forget Brazil, South London is where it's at for the next fortnight.
Luckily for Wimbledon-goers and tennis players, white is the colour of the season. However, Kim Sears' flawless appearances on centre court last year have set the bar even higher than usual. The women of Wimbledon will likely follow Andy Murray's other-half's lead of demure knee-length dresses and a perfect blowdry rather than spaghetti straps or trousers and fake tan. Feminine styles that give a nod to floaty, summery fashion are always a Wimbledon staple.

As spectators will spend a large amount of time sitting and watching matches, linen is a likely no-go due to its tendency to wrinkle. A nice silk would be better for those who prefer to look fresh throughout the whole of the event. Sunglasses will also be a staple of the matches, and a useful one. Ray-Ban and Victoria Beckham's designs have been extremely popular of late, and blue or green lenses have been seen on celebrities recently.

While Wimbledon is a summertime event, British weather may also provide a downpour or two. Fans will expect this, and navy or black loose blazers will likely be seen because of it. In addition, due to the matches' tendencies to run into the night, women will likely be bringing fitted jackets with little embellishment. White may be at the centre of Wimbledon fashion, but blocks of pastel colours will also be plentiful and, occasionally, bright reds may be seen among those who feel bold.

The Middleton sisters Kate and Pippa are also the ones to watch off the court, with ladylike tea dresses, wedges and structured jackets. Unlike football, tennis style is always about clean, understated elegance and perfect hair and makeup. With and Kim and Kate paving the way with impeccable taste, Wimbledon is sure to set the best dressed lists for summer '14.
