Royal Ascot style: the dos and don’ts of racecourse fashion

The world famous Royal Ascot. There’s nothing like a day at the races for bringing out the best in the fillies. And as much as we love the excitement of watching the horse race around the course while we have a flutter, the fashion at Royal Ascot is  just as fascinating. That’s not to mention the Champagne and Pimm’s readily available to celebrate victory or to reduce the disappointment of defeat.

 

We love seeing the yearly parade of extravagant hats, posh frocks and daring style choices, but occasionally it’s hard not to laugh at some of the Ascot fashion choices that are decidedly more ‘neigh’ than yay. Time and time again we see attendees trying to stick to or challenge the traditional modest dress code while making a style statement, and some are more successful than others. Race organisers have banned fascinators in a bid to control the flood of bare flesh and terrible head gear on display every year.

When you’re going for Ladies’ Day, it’s important to remember to dress and behave like a lady, rather than a ladette. Royal Ascot is an incredible day out and is well worth going the extra mile to look your best for and ensure that all eyes are on you for the right reasons! You can be daring and creative, but don’t take it too far or you might not be there too long!

There are loads of celebrity fashion scandals every year at Royal Ascot to laugh at, learn from and avoid yourself. Earlier this week celebrity dancer Kristina Rihanoff was refused entry after turning up to the event in a dress made from betting slips. We’d bet she’s regretting that about now, unlucky Kristina!

Feeling inspired? Grab yourself a Pimms and take a look at Redseven’s Ascot hen weekends.
