Pippa Middleton’s 2021 Wimbledon outfit is still stuck in our minds, with her timeless gingham wrap dress still so on trend for this year's summer season.

As soon as summer starts to make itself known, we immediately begin to look forward to Wimbledon and the best Wimbledon looks we're bound to see on the celebs and royals sitting court-side. 

The tournament always gives us inspiration for our summer capsule wardrobes with celebs from Kate Middleton to Sienna Miller stepping out in outfits that could easily take a spot in our round up of the best wedding guest dresses and accessorising with trendy, timeless pieces. 

As we wait for this year's event to start, we're taking inspiration from past outfits worn by those in attendance and Pippa Middleton's 2021 Wimbledon look is at the top of list to be recreated.

Stepping out with her husband James Matthews for a daytime date, Pippa looked stunning in a now discontinued blue gingham wrap dress from Ralph Lauren for the occasion. With a plunging yet respectable v-neckline, dramatically puffed sleeves and a sweet bow detail at the waist, the gingham dress is the perfect summer piece for those casual days where you still want something elevated and interesting to wear. 

The beauty of a wrap dress like Pippa's is its versatility. With an oversized tote bag, like the M&S rival for Loewe's £450 straw bag, and a pair of laid-back sandals (our current favourites are this £60 Chanel-lookalike pair) you're picnic ready and looking relaxed and ready for the summer day. But you can also flip the styling and dress up the piece with some heels and a smart crossbody or clutch. It's all in the accessories.

With her hair tied back into a sleek ponytail, Pippa's accessories could really shine. We love her dainty jewellery which brings a subtle yet stunning addition to the look and her contrasting orange/neutral toned sunglasses against the blue gingham looks great.
