It’s that time of year again. Royal Ascot Races. Running this year from Tuesday 20th June to Saturday 24th June, the event is five days of excitement, socializing, horse racing and style.
You can always be sure that Royal Ascot will provide some fabulous outfits and incredible hats each year.
Ascot’s dress code is incredibly strict, allowing the event to uphold its reputation for elegance.
Did you know, for example, that ladies must wear a hat in the Royal Enclosure, and any shoulder straps on an outfit must be one inch wide or greater?
And also, dresses must fall just above the knee or longer, and any trouser suits MUST be of matching material and colour.
We have compiled together some of our favourite looks from the Races. Which is your favourite?
1. Pretty in Pink
This look is incredibly beautiful and feminine.
The pale pink colour is matched throughout the outfit, right down to the dainty round handbag.
The flared sleeves add an extra element of glamour and are a fabulous statement detail.
We think her hat is gorgeous too – the netting detail mixed with the floral element looks beautiful teamed with the dramatic feather.
2. Beautiful in Blue
Blue is one of those colours which looks gorgeous on pretty much anyone.
This pretty dress features a ladylike v-neck neckline and a tie waist to create a gorgeous silhouette.
The blue hat is actually quite minimal but really makes a big impact alongside the dress.
3. Go Monochrome
This lady’s look really stands out from the crowd.
The bold black and white geometric pattern contrasts beautifully with the extravagant red hat and feather details.
The flared skirt is very feminine and shows off her stud details heels very well.
4. Whimsical in White
White can be difficult to pull off in an outfit, but these two ladies prove just how stunning it can look when done right.
The ladies add elements of black into their look to break up the white colour, through their hats and the piping detail on the dress on the right.
White also looks fabulous when worn against a tan, and allows you to be a bit braver with your makeup colours.
Achieve the left lady’s round sunglasses look with the Miu Miu MU 13NS (1/2).
Their bold black frames and gold metal detailing would look fantastic contrasted with a glamorous white outfit.
5. Feminine Florals
It is Summer, so you can’t really go wrong with a gorgeous floral dress like this one Fashion Blogger Hatty Bell is wearing.
The maxi length is oh-so elegant, and the pleated detail both looks gorgeous and is incredibly flattering.
The halter neck top is very much in style at the moment too.
6. Trouser Suit
It’s not all dresses that the ladies are wearing at Ascot this year.
This gorgeous trouser suit really lets Alanna stand out from the crowd.
The bright pink colour shouts of summer, whilst the tailored cut is both flattering and elegant.
She contrasts the look well with both black and white accessories, which add an extra element of interest to the look.
