Appropriately Ascot

As Royal Ascot is well and truly upon us, I thought I would do a little post about appropriate outfits for the races as I will be attending with a group of friends tomorrow. Ascot is a is a little different to other racing events in that they have set rules for each section, which must be followed to allowed entry.

Royal Enclosure: For ladies a modest length dress must be worn, defined as just above the knee or longer, no thin spaghetti straps, and a hat or head piece with a large base must be worn- no fascinators are allowed in Royal Enclosure.
For Gentlemen: Black or grey morning suit, a waistcoat or tie, a black or grey top hat and black shoes.

Grandstand: Ladies: A hat, headpiece or fascinator should be worn at all times, a modest dress- strapless or sheer strap dresses and tops are not allowed.
Gentlemen: suit, shirt and tie.

Silver Ring and Health: No formal dress applies in the Silver Ring and Health Enclosure, however you are encouraged to dress smartly.

However, no matter how many rules the put in place there are always people who turn up with enormous novelty hats and garish dresses, which I’m not complaining about as I seeing how much effort some people go to.

Once you’ve sorted your tickets and picked an outfit it’s time to try and win some money (and drink champagne). My friends and I generally don’t have betting technique what so ever, we tend to pick which ever name we like the best, which I think sometimes works better anyway.
Fingers crossed for tomorrow, I’ll let you know how I get on!
