Which fashion look should you bet on for Ascot this summer? Here's the lowdown on our hot tips for the most stylish meet of the racing calendar...
Hats and hemlines are always big news at Royal Ascot. And this summer will be no exception! With tickets to Ladies' Day hot, hot, hot, it's the place to be seen this sporting season. Thanks to summer 2013's ladylike trend, finding an appropriate outfit should be as easy as downing the obligatory glass of champers this year. Keep hemlines modest, either on-the-knee or no more than an inch above the knee – it's not the place for miniskirts! Play the safe style card and opt for a floaty maxidress in an on-trend pastel shade. Strapless tops and dresses are a style no-no for Ascot so again keep it classy – a shift dress in monochrome tones will catch the eye and make a bold statement. Hats are big news for the summer and always a winner at Ascot – just ensure they're not so crazily large that they step into Easter bonnet territory. And if you think you have the perfect Ascot outfit in mind, you could win a pair of Grandstand tickets to the event thanks to Bahlsen biscuits!
Grazia's Top Ascot Tips
1. THE BAG
This summer is all about the oversized envelope clutch. Two tone or embellished, it's the perfect size to stash away a pair of comfy cocktail flats to slip into on the way home.
2. THE OUTFIT
Think ladylike and dress like a modern princess. Don't flash the cleavage, be aware of your hemline and go for pretty pastel shades or strong brights – both are on-trend .
3. THE SHOES
Wedges or quirky flatforms add stylish height and stop you sinking into the turf!
4. THE HAT
Choose your outfit first, then a hat to match. The brim should never extend wider than your shoulders. You don’t want to frighten the horses!
