We may not be able to attend Royal Ascot this year, but this is a perfect opportunity to create our own lockdown enclosure to watch the races. And great news! You can lay down the rules for your own dress code!
Royal Ascot takes place from 16th–20th June this year and features a fill-your-boots 36 races – click here to view the order of running for the five days.
If the weather is fine, transform your outdoor space into the Garden Enclosure. Have a BBQ or a picnic and of course don’t forget the drinks.
Dress code idea: go for a summer party atmosphere.
A summer garden party needs a sunny shirt. Jazz up your outfit with Joe Brown’s Sunshine Stripe shirt in mustard/rust £30.
Keep it smart casual with a pair of their navy chino shorts £35.
For a smarter look, choose their matching linen trousers. All above are also available in chambray and grey.
Keep a cool head in an off-white straw fedora style hat by Fashboho via Etsy. Trimmed with leather band and buckle. Was £49.65 now £29.79. Other colours available.
No outdoor space? Or do you just want to chill on the sofa and watch the races? Then create your living room into the Indoors Enclosure with plenty of cold beers and food handy.
Dress code idea: comfy but stylish.
