TV Presenter Jameela Jamil Goes Bright For Wimbledon

T4 star Jameela Jamil kept up the morale at Wimledon when she turned up to the tennis tournament in a bright sunny orange dress.

While it has been raining on and off during the first few days of the tournament, Jameela looked full of life and upbeat as she watched Andy Murray claim victory on centre court.

What makes her dress totally gorgeous is the lighter peach trim around the hem and around the strapline. A full orange dress could hurt people’s eyes but the contrasting colour makes it appropriate to wear for the day as well as at night.

Jameela knows a thing or ten about dressing for outdoor events due to the festivals she attends for her job presenting the Channel 4 weekend morning music show.

This year she’ll be attending Glastonbury before taking to the stage at the T4 party in the beach in Weston Super Mare and introducing all the acts performing.

And Very can reveal the event will be packed full of pop-tastic treats with performances from JLS, Jessie J, The Wanted, Chipmunk, N-Dubz, Aloe Blac, Olly Murs, Katy B and more.

We had an exclusive chat to Jameela to ask her what she’d be wearing and she shared: “For festival fashion, comfort is key. Don’t wear an all-in-one people – it’s a porta loo situation. Everyone thinks that wellies are a festival fashion staple, but I’m more of a boot person, I like old, beaten-up worker boots. They’re way more stylish than wellies.”

And talking about style, the good news is you can easily achieve Jameela’s Wimbledon sophistcation with clothes from Very. Check out the Diana Vickers scarf detail shift dress for similar colours

Another way to make the orange less garish is to combine it with this season’s tribal print trend. Try the gorgeous Love Label embellished Aztec dress

If you’re after more of a party dress, the Forever Unique embellished backless dress uses sequins that are even more attention-grabbing than the colour of the dress. This is a show-stopping outfit

The TV presenter is carrying a cute straw bag and you can get a similar straw basket bag from Very

Make the accessories big and bold to compete with the dress. Jameela werars a cuff like Very’s hammered cuff

We look forward to seeing what she wears to T4 on the beach on 10 July!
