There’s nothing more inspiring than standing out while abiding by a dress code. With the most formal event in the British calendar upon us again, the best-dressed at the Royal Ascot are artfully showing that following the rules of the races doesn’t mean blending in.
Bright colours mirror the bright summer days, and every kind of fascinator or hat has been on display. Eye-catching patterns come in all colours and formations, with bold coloured accessories completing the best outfits. Though fuschia seems to be the hue of the moment, monochromatic looks still stand out. Texture breaks up many of the most stylish looks, from feather detailing to metallic fascinators. Whether you’re entering the enclosure, or need inspiration for wedding guest dressing, the Ascot fashion crowd provides solid inspiration for formal dressing.
