    OK, well I'm going to Wimbledon on Friday next week (26th June) and haven't got a clue what I should wear! Anybody got any suggestions. I'm around a size 14/16 depending on style, I'm about 5ft 3. Thanks for help in advance, also links would be useful.

    Comfortable, layers. It's a long day and you might get a lot of weather

    I recommend a white dress, white socks and trainers. It would also be helpful to bring a racket.

    I've worked at Wimbledon for the past 4 years, and going back there this year.

    There really is no dress code as such, I recommend dressing casually. There is no need to dress up, hardly anyone does, not even for the finals.

    Any other questions, let me know.

    Oo Wimbledon, you lucky sod! Hehe hope you have an amazing time

    I would wear something nice - when you see the crowd on tv they mostly all look like sad socks-and-sandal wearing miserable old-before-their-time middle-aged crones, or they just look like fat grotesque chavs.

    Depending on what the weather's supposed to be like that day (it's England, so the last week of June could either be blazing sunshine or pouring rain!), I would go for something like:

    A pretty sun or day dress
    A cardigan (possibly a longish slouchy one that you can roll the sleeves up on or a waterfall one so you can cosy up in it if it gets chilly later on)
    Ballet pumps/trainers (not actual trainers, I mean the type they have in Next with the little velcro straps, the cute ones)

    Or:

    Jeans
    Vest top
    Cardigan
    Ballet pumps/trainers

    Try places like Primark, Dorothy Perkins, Tesco, Sainsbury's - they're normally really good for inexpensive day dresses, cardigans and the like.
