Forget Polo Shirts—Rina Sawayama Is Bringing Yeehaw Style to Wimbledon, of All Places

For how much longer can the yeehaw trend keep riding? Right now, it seems like there’s no occasion that doesn’t call for a good old cowboy hat or a pair of steel-toe boots. Ciara brought some Western flair to the south of France when she attended a conference in Cannes last month, Diplo was spotted playing basketball in a canary yellow Nudie suit, and even Bruce Springsteen leaned into the aesthetic with the artwork surrounding his new album Western Stars (just take a look at that shearling-lined suede jacket, not to mention the cowboy hat he clutches in his hand).

Rina Sawayama, however, just brought the frontier-ready style to perhaps the most unexpected place yet: Wimbledon. It’s her second time at the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and the up-and-coming British singer Sawayama took on the sporting event like a seasoned spectator, wearing some white cowboy boots, slacks, a metallic belt, and a fringed leather jacket, all by Ralph Lauren. The outfit may be a far cry from the preppy polo shirts and sporty tennis dresses that most choose for the championship games, but Sawayama did stick to one convention associated with Wimbledon: tennis whites, which became a mandated rule for players starting in 1890. Sawayama might be the only cowgirl at the proceedings, but she’s at least sticking to the traditional color palette.
