Our staff at Walk in Wardrobe have many years of experience of dressing ladies for Ascot, so we can help you dress correctly and avoid any embarrassing refusals on the day!
Ladies outfits for the Royal Enclosure
Although there is a strict dress code for the Royal Enclosure don’t think for a minute that you can’t still look sexy and glamorous. I can inform you now that midi-dresses are IN, so even though you are required to wear a dress which is just above the knee or longer, you will still look fashionable. Strapless, or off the shoulder dresses are a big no-no, and you need to make sure that your straps are at least 1 inch thick, regardless of whether you are wearing a jacket or not.
For Ascot, we have some stunning collections with fresh and modern designs make out of high quality fabrics in plain or with stunning prints. Our race day outfits adhere to the dress code at Ascot and come with jackets which are very suited to the unpredictable English weather!
Hats and fascinators for the Royal Enclosure
Hats are required in the Royal Enclosure, although a substantial fascinator with a base of at least 4 inches is acceptable instead of a hat.
Ladies outfits for the Grandstand
Although the dress code is slightly more relaxed in the Grandstand, ladies are still required to wear formal wear. As with the Royal Enclosure, regardless of whether you have a jacket, you are not permitted to wear strapless or sheer strap dresses. Our pencil dresses are particularly suitable for the Grandstand, and have the added benefit of being made out of stretchy fabric which are really comfortable – a must if you are going to be in the dress all day!
Hats and fascinators for the Grandstand
A hat, headpiece or fascinator must be worn at all times, so it’s essential to get the right one for you with reflects your personality so you feel comfortable.
Although no one likes to surrender wardrobe autonomy to anyone, if you adhere to the rules you will have a fun packed and fabulous day. And if you get your outfits and accessories from us, you will not only have a fabulous day, you will be looking stunning and feeling confident too!
