Royal Ascot is synonymous with sartorial elegance. This is upheld by our dress code, which invites guests to contribute to an occasion heralded as a major fashion event in its own right. Take a look back at 2018's Royal Ascot Style Guide, with the 2019 edition to be released soon.
Ascot continues to recognise key trends in the ever-evolving world of fashion. Additions to the official dress code in 2018 made socks a requirement for gentlemen and specific necklines detailed as acceptable, or not, across all Enclosures. Our dress code is traditional, woven into the very fabric of our history. It was Beau Brummell, perhaps Britain’s first fashion icon, who at the turn of the 19th century dictated the dress for men in the Royal Enclosure. His sense of style is still reflected in Royal Ascot fashions today.
