If you’re attending a horse racing event, you have to ensure that you stick to the dress code specified. This varies according to the event you are attending. Also, the season in which the event is conducted determines the kind of clothing you are allowed to wear. Let’s have a look at some of the popular dress codes to help you get an idea:
Knee-length or longer dresses
Straps of dresses and tops to be broader than one inch.
Full-length jumpsuits and trouser suits are acceptable
Hats must be worn; Fascinators are banned.
Midriffs must be covered.
Apart from the Royal Enclosure, the ladies are allowed to wear shorter dresses and top them with fascinators in other enclosures.
A suit, waistcoat and a tie.
Black or grey hat
Black shoes, socks are essential.
Away from this Enclosure, men can opt not to wear the hat and waistcoat, but a tie is mandatory.
Here, the ladies are expected to wear a tailored trouser suit or a formal day dress that has to be paired with a hat that has a substantial fascinator.
For men, it has to be a black or grey morning suit, with a waistcoat and top hat.
These are the rules if you are in the privileged Queen’s stand.
Other than the Queens’s stand, the dress code is pretty cool – even jeans (That are not torn or ripped) can be worn.
There you go! Dress, to impress!
