WHAT TO WEAR TO Ascot: The Ultimate guide

Understanding Ascot Dress codes

The most prestigious enclosure requires formal daywear. For ladies, this means dresses and skirts of modest length (just above the knee or longer), and hats or substantial fascinators. For gentlemen, morning dress is mandatory, including a waistcoat, tie (no cravats), and a top hat.

Slightly less formal, yet still sophisticated. Ladies should wear a hat, headpiece, or fascinator at all times. Dresses and skirts should be of modest length. Gentlemen are required to wear a suit with a shirt and tie.

Similar to the Queen Anne Enclosure, but with a slightly more relaxed atmosphere. The same guidelines apply for both ladies and gentlemen, although there is a little more flexibility in terms of style.

The most relaxed dress code. Smart daywear is encouraged, and while hats for ladies and jackets for men are not mandatory, they are recommended.
