Royal Ascot is a fashion event in its own right as it continues to recognise key trends in the ever-evolving world of fashion. As a pivotal event for royalty, celebrities and socialites there is always a range of colour and style to inspire.
As is to be expected, sartorial standards are high at an event where racegoers rub shoulders with horse owners, trainers and even royalty. Be it a race day, garden party or summer wedding we look at a range of colourful and flamboyant styles (no need to rein in the style stakes) that will inspire you for summer...
Billowing silky skirt dresses with button down fronts are a top trend with a 50s feel. Add a loose sheer Bishop's sleeve with cuffs and a sharp tailored collar and you're hot to trot! We recommend our range of coloured silk chiffon Tempest. With an extensive range of colours to choose from you're find your perfect pallette.
Lace never goes out of fashion and at the moment it's the hot colours that are winning the stakes. A full lace dress in bright yellow or a magnificant magenta , often a Guipure, looks absolutely top notch - just make sure you wear it with unbridled enthusiasm! Here are a selection of colourful laces to get you started.
Make style statment with a striking silk Dupion. Often referred to as raw silk, this wonderful fabric is used by many of the top couture designers. Cameo is a beautiful soft, yet firm fabric, ideal for a vibrant structured garment enabling you to pick up on the solid colour tailored trend with a luxurious fabric. Slash neckline dresses and short jacket or long dress coat combination look fabulous and give an air of regal supremacy with a decadent silk finish.
'Stirrup' more style with colour contrasting details with lapels and cuffs.
