Wimbledon Outfits from Preloved

This year’s Wimbledon is all white everything – aside from the 1cm splash of colour thrown in for good measure. Tournament referee Andrew Jarrett has announced a clampdown on colour and insisted players’ outfits be punctuated with merely a centimetre of it. Boring? We don’t think so.
