The all-white dress code at Wimbledon might be just as famous as the players that take to the historic grass courts. Everything from the shade of white (pure white only, no cream or off-white allowed!) to the amount of color allowed on the trim (a one centimeter strip and nothing more!) is carefully outlined in the Wimbledon rules. Lucky for us, the all-white outfits over the years have been anything but boring. Here are some of our favorite looks and a few Wimbledon-ready styles from our latest collection.
1949: Gussie (Gertrude) Moran
Gussie Moran’s lace trimmed shorts made just as many headlines as she did when she flashed them at the 1949 tournament. The look also resulted in designer Ted Tinling being banned from Wimbledon.

1985: Anne White

Maria Sharapova looked chic on the court in 2008 with a tuxedo inspired tank, jacket and tailored white shorts.
