Whether it’s a timeless classic or a new trend-led style, elegant formalwear is an investment not to be made lightly. From lace dresses to a smart blazer and trouser combination, we’ve got the styles you’ll want to place bets on.

Top Tips To Get You Ready For Race Day

  • Think sustainably. Where are you going to be able to re-wear the outfit again? Try picking something you can wear to another formal event you’ve got coming up.
  • You’re going to be walking around all-day, think practically about your footwear. Don’t let your stilettos get stuck in the grass, try block heels or wedges – they’re comfortable too!
  • It’s England – the weather is likely to be unpredictable. Go for layers you can pop on and remove with ease. Opt for lightweight duster jackets with mid-length dresses and blazers with blouses and trouser combos.
  • Accessories are key. From fascinators and clutch bags to footwear and jewellery, these are the finishing touches that will take your race-ready outfit to the next level.
