  • If you’re heading to Royal Ascot but haven’t yet sorted your outfit and need a bit of inspiration, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up a selection of dresses for Royal Ascot that adhere to the Royal Ascot dress code – correct length, suitable necklines and straps.

    Of course, depending on which enclosure you’re in, the dress code is slightly different – but as this race meeting is a chance to get your glad rags on we think it’s nice to really make an effort and go all out smart with a hat suitable for Royal Ascot. Trouser suits and jumpsuits are also allowed, providing they meet the dress code regulations.
