Races dresses can be (and usually are) a total nightmare to find, especially if you're going to Ascot. Whether you're going to Ladies Day and looking for the perfect dress, or you're wanting to make a statement, we're here to make it a whole lot easier.
So quickly, we'll run over the Ascot race day outfit rules which has easily the strictest dress code. Hemlines must be on or below the knees, straps - yes, there must be some (bye bandeaus) and they must be over an inch thick. Thankfully we are allowed trouser suits nowadays but don't go all Jared Leto, these have to be matching separates - and full-length too. Hats are a must-have too, or headpieces but they must have a base diameter of more than four inches. Pheww, so you can't just dip into your wardrobe on the day for your races fashion.
So, where does that leave us? We've picked out a stunning selection of appropriate dresses, from fun prints at Stella to pastels at Cos. Steer clear of clutches and keep your look cool with a box bag, and the most faabulously extravagant hat you can find.
