Fancy your chances at Ascot? While most racecourses don’t have hard and fast rules on dress code, you’ll generally be expected to sport a smart outfit. Most women tend to go for short, formal dresses — tailored shirt dresses and cocktail dresses are a stylish choice — and men usually wear lighter coloured suits. Some racecourses will allow smart shorts and neat jeans but double-check with the venue. Trainers are usually regarded as a bit of a no-no.
Don’t forget your accessories! A day at the races is a lovely opportunity to dress up so why not go all out? A big hat will keep the sun off and make a statement, while a fascinator brings a bit of fun to the outfit.
No matter what you’re celebrating, you can find plenty of fashionable outfits at Robert Goddard. From smart-casual separates to formal dresses that will turn heads, take a look at our designer menswear and womenswear collections.
