With Royal Ascot 2012 just around the corner, we’ve selected the best buys for the event that will suit both you and the dress code perfectly.
As skirts must be “of modest length” and fall “just above the knee or longer”, a midi dress fits the bill perfectly. But a longer skirt doesn’t have to look dowdy – go modern with muted metallics that will set you apart from the traditional florals. A simple, delicate headpiece by fashion favourite Philip Treacy will earn you some serious Royal Ascot style points.
If you want to go girly, then a prom dress style will do the trick. And if you want to be papped whilst cheering on your favourite horse, go for an eye catching head piece, such as this cute apple-shaped number from ASOS. Mix it with summery colours and fun accessories to be the Royal Ascot 2012 Queen of Quirk.
But if you really want to look like you belong in the Royal enclosure, a statement pencil dress is the way to go. Simple in shape but complex in detail, this Alexander McQueen number is the pinnacle of understated luxury. To compensate for the steep price tag, go for lower end accessories that won’t steal the focus. Finish with a Great Gatsby-esque hat by Kate Middleton milliner Rachel Trevor Morgan.
