Royal Ascot Style Guide 2015

Fast horses and fancy hats, it’s that time of year again for guests to wear their best glamorous and elegant outfits to the most stylish sporting event - Royal Ascot!

What to expect from this year's Royal Ascot

Royal Ascot has become as famous for its dress code and ladies day as the racing itself! Known for it’s strict dress code, this year, Royal Ascot organisers have released a new style guide for 2015.

As always, both guests have a strict style guide to follow for Ascot

First things first – understand that there are several different areas at the event, so the rules differ according to the type of ticket you buy. So if you’ve purchased a Grandstand Enclosure or Silver Ring ticket, fascinators are allowed. Bought a ticket to the Royal Enclosure? Then you’ll be required to wear a headpiece with a base of 10cm (4 inches) or more.

Grandstand Admission Dress Code:

Dresses and skirts should be of modest length
If there is one golden rule you must follow then it’s the length of your dress or skirt. Keep it just above the knee or a bit longer to save yourself embarrassment and avoid a fashion faux pas.

A hat, headpiece or fascinator should be worn at all times in the Grandstand
That’s right, all times, so make sure you choose you one find comfortable because it needs to stay on!

Strapless, off the shoulder, halter neck and spaghetti straps are not permitted
Any top or dress you wear must have straps and it needs to be more than an inch thick. Got a strapless dress you’re desperate to wear? Then keep your jacket throughout the day so that your shoulders are not on show.

Trouser suits are welcome. They should be of full length and of matching material and colour
Royal Ascot is the perfect occasion to wear a dress, but if trousers are more your thing then go a matching colour set - try LK Bennett or John Lewis they have a selection of good ones.

Midriffs must be covered
Does this really need further explanation?!
Shorts are not permitted
Anyone who thinks shorts are acceptable would be better placed heading to a festival instead.

The dress code for the Silver Ring ticket holders are less restricted but there are still rules to follow:

Silver ring ticket holders are encouraged to wear smart clothes, “No formal dress code applies in the Silver Ring except that replica sports shirts are not permitted...fancy dress, novelty and branded promotional clothing are not allowed on site.”

So follow these simple rules to avoid a fashion faux pas and you’ll be well on your way to being the best dressed person at Royal Ascot this year. Want more dress code tips? Then watch this:

This year's Royal Ascot will be held from the 16th - 20th June 2015 and tickets start from £19 - £78. Fine Dining starts from £250 per person + VAT.
