Wimbledon is always a great opportunity to catch up with celebrity best summer style
It’s one of the most infamous and high-profile tennis tournaments in the world, and this week everyone who’s anyone has been making their way to the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club to bask in the glory of Wimbledon. From a dressed down Romeo Beckham to a dapper and dressed up Justin Timberlake, now that the tournament is over, we round up the five best-dressed men of Wimbledon 2018:

Eddie Redmayne is the quintessential English gentleman, so it’s no surprise that he’s a tennis fan who knows how to dress for Wimbledon! Eddie dressed in his best for the occasion, pairing a slim fitting blue suit (which complemented his hair colour and skin tone perfectly) with a matt silver tie. His white pocket square coordinated with his crisp white shirt. The whole outfit oozed understated perfection.
Little known fact: Although he is well-known for his love of bold and colourful outfits, Eddie is actually wholly colour blind. His wife helps him to colour coordinate his wardrobe and pick out his clothes.

Just like his famous father, Romeo Beckham is a big sports fan, and he is a particularly talented tennis player. Whether he is on or off the court, Romeo always looks suave in crisp tennis whites, channelling this season’s sports luxe trend.
White can be a tricky colour to wear, but now is the perfect time to give it a try! Why not take a leaf from Romeo’s book by putting together pieces from your favourite sportswear brands (Adidas is a perennial favourite chez Beckham). Wearing white is a great way to highlight a summer tan: just be careful with that ketchup-laden hot dog!
He may be nearly 60, but Hugh Grant continues to prove that true style is timeless. He’s made a career out of playing a bumbling, but ultimately lovable, aristocratic English buffoon, and Hugh certainly played up to that stereotype with his outfit for Wimbledon. Hugh combined a classic and slim-fitting black suit with a youthful low cut pant and a coordinating slim-line tie. What elevated this relatively workaday outfit was Hugh’s hat and sunglasses combination. By pairing a classic white fedora with a pair of brown-tinted aviators, Hugh showed that he still has his finger on the fashion pulse. The whole feel was effortlessly European-inspired.
JT is well known for his fashion credentials, and he injected a little music-industry cool into what is traditionally a formal occasion. Justin wore a classic grey suit but paired it with a quirkier, statement-making polka dot tee to ensure he turned heads. He topped the outfit with oversized tortoiseshell sunglasses and continued the laid-back feel of his look with a shirt but full beard. You might not be spending the summer in Wimbledon, but this is a great outfit to replicate if you’re looking for something to wear to a laid-back summer party. Pair a patterned tee with your favourite suit, instead of a shirt, to make your outfit feel more fun and youthful.
Finally, proving that you don’t need to endlessly add bells and whistles to look stylish, Lawrence Fox put together the perfect low key summer outfit for his Wimbledon appearance by keep accessories to a minimum. Combining a skinny black suit with complimentary accessories and an unbuttoned, fitted, white shirt, Lawrence shows us just how easy it is to look chic for every occasion.
