With a new season upon us, keeping warm and stylish at the races doesn’t have to be a challenge! The super stylish Country & Luxury PR UK Team have some great advice to ensure that you are on a winning streak when it comes to looking good this jump season.
While the dress code at Ascot is a little more relaxed than during the flat season, you still need to adhere to their dress guidelines, and these are dependent on your ticket choice also.
For the King Edward VII Enclosure, ladies are advised to dress for a smart occasion, and we love the possibilities they offer!
Choose tailored separates; warm winter knits and ¾ length jackets. Add your own distinctive touch and personality – a beautifully printed scarf, a chiffon blouse or patterned tights.
The Luxury PR UK team adore this tweed outfit complete with a fascinator. While headwear is not a must, we personally think this fascinator, Isla Jacket and Skirt In Duchess Tweed from Timothy Foxx ticks the box perfectly in every way!
We also love this Equetech Knitted Snaffles Poncho in classic Navy. Its subtle nod towards equestrian is perfect for race-day, but wearable for any occasion. Team with navy trousers or dress, navy clutch bag and navy pumps to bring back comfort to looking smart.
The Queen Anne Enclosure dictates that while no formal dress code applies during the jumps season, they do encourage smart clothing. We just adore this stunning Limited Edition Egality Jacket from The Spanish Boot Company; beautifully tailored, this jacket is stylish enough for race day when teamed with a skirt or trousers but works equally well dressed down with jeans and wellington boots for a weekend country walk with the dog to the pub.
Accessories Are Everything
Investing in your accessories is a must, and your starting point should always be great statement jewellery and beautiful scarves.
This beautiful BHOID Covey scarf will add colour and elegance to the most basic of outfits. Add to compliment a plain dress or tie at the neck for style and warmth with a crisp cotton shirt and tailored jacket. This Sylvia Kerr Farah Neckchain looks fantastic teamed with a blouse, crisp cotton shirt or polo neck. The combination instantly updates your look to something simply stunning.
When it comes to warmth, opt for a skirt or dress knee length or lower and team with tights. Shoes with a slight heel will work, as will an elegant boot to the knee. These stunning suede boots from The Spanish Boot Company work perfectly with tweed, tailoring or even a wool dress. Follow the colour through with a complimenting clutch handbag or pick up the shade in a scarf. Tying in your outfit with a hint of colour is an effortless way to bring the whole look together.
