What To Wear
To The Races

A day at the races calls for pulling out all the stops when it comes to style. Whether you’re taking a casual approach in the Paddock, going for fashion-icon status on Ladies Day, our hand-picked accessory ideas will ensure your look is odds-on favourite to win.

Royal Enclosure

The area to be seen in, team your most sophisticated outfit with show-stopping accessories and enjoy rubbing shoulders with the stars.

The favourites: The perfect foil to your most glamorous dress, diamonds will make your look even more luxurious.

How to get race ready:

The pinnacle of sartorial elegance, only formal daywear which adheres to strict, traditional dress codes will do.


Dress lengths and necklines might be strictly governed, but Royal Ascot hasn’t evolved into a fashion event in its own right for nothing. Contribute to the occasion with beautifully tailored dresses, and don’t forget your hat.

VIP Enclosure

The perfect place to showcase your winning style, team formal attire with luxurious accessories to ensure you’re dressed for drama.

The favourites: Combining classic elegance with a passion for racing, a Longines watch will complement your racing style perfectly.

How to get race ready:

The dress code is strict here, so leave your denim and sportswear at home. Dress to impress and get ready to sip champagne with the VIPs.

The Grandstand

Ensure your race day fashion is on-point by teaming relaxed tailoring with cute, designer touches for a fun finish.

How to get race ready:

Don’t be upstaged by your fellow racegoers; the competition for best-dressed title is fierce. The dress code might be more relaxed, but shorts, sportswear and trainers are a definite no-go.

The Paddock

Style your outfit for the more relaxed setting. Smart-casual attire matched with playful accessories will put your look in the lead.

The favourites: Leader of the pack when it comes to a feminine fashion statement, nothing channels a bohemian, summer vibe like a floral watch.

How to get race ready:
