Easily one of the most fashionable sporting events in the calendar, Wimbledon brings out the best of celebrity style year after year. And if Gemma Chan's memorable checkerboard dress from 2022 is anything to go by, we're expecting a host of statement looks this year.

Kicking off on Monday the 1st of July this year, The Wimbledon Tennis Championships is just as much about the stellar A-lister outfits as it is about the sport. There are countless best Wimbledon looks to choose from, but Gemma Chan's unique mini dress at the 2022 competition is one we always come back to.

Green and white are indisputably the most on-brand hues for tennis guests, so it's no surprise that her ensemble stands out as one of the best. From the eye-catching print to the stunning mini Louis Vuitton bag complete with a tennis ball bag charm, it is a quintessential Wimbledon outfit.

The actress' look is by Louis Vuitton, featuring the iconic Ellipse BB bag - one of the best designer bags - and a tennis ball-looking coin purse. Clearly inspired by the pristine Wimbledon grass courts, Gemma's dress also has a true sporty feel thanks to the polo-style neckline.

Whilst perfectly on theme for the tennis, a checkerboard pattern is a pretty standout print that you may not feel comfortable wearing for more casual occasions. A soft green gingham is a brilliant alternative that has timeless appeal and offers just the right hit of colour for the season.

To complete the look and make your dress of choice Wimbledon-worthy, take inspiration from Gemma's accessories. A sleek pair of white pointed heels like this bargain £33 pair from John Lewis will give any dress a formal feel, whilst a mini top-handle handbag is just the right size for your essentials but won't distract from a statement pattern in your outfit.
