The Races: Your Outfit Guide
Racing season is here! Whether you're planning on attending the Epsom Derby or Royal Ascot, here is Accent Clothing's guide of what to wear to the races.
These prestigious events are renowned for their formal dress code, although these guidelines are not as strict as you might think. Although hemlines must be at least knee-length and hats are considered a must, there is no restrictions on the size of your hat or width of your dress straps, unless you are planning on entering the Royal Enclosure at Ascot. If you do plan on entering the Royal Enclosure, ensure your shoulders are covered and avoid sheer material or you will be denied access. Also, make sure your hat is at least 4 inches wide and your hemline falls below the knee.
However, if you do not intend to enter the Royal Enclosure, simply keep your race outfit formal
