On the hunt for the perfect style for the races? You’re in the right place; we’ve got plenty of inspiration and advice to get you to ladies day in style, as well a dressing for the unpredictable British weather…
Know The Dress Code
First things first, swot up on what access your ticket gives you and if there’s a dress code to adhere by. For example, if you’re off to the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot, your dress must be knee-length and have shoulder straps wider than one inch.
Carefully Consider Your Footwear
Those six-inch heels may look irresistible, but the reality will be far more brutal; a day at the races is a long day. Instead, consider a more forgiving mid heel or a court with a T-bar to make navigating uneven ground that little bit easier. Best of all for grassy terrain is a pair of wedges or shoes with a chunky heel – you won’t be sinking anywhere in those
Don’t Forget Your Coat…
…this is Britain after all, and nothing will make your perfect pastel outfit look more off-kilter than a leather biker jacket or wintry pea coat. Invest in a chic cover-up that will see you through a slew of summer weddings too and you won’t regret it. White goes with everything, as do pale blush shades – but don’t be afraid of a bold pop of colour.
