Royal Ascot 2020: Fabulous Fashion for Racegoers at Home

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 on TV. And the beauty of it is you can lay down the rules for your own dress code! #RockItForRacing

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.

Garden Enclosure

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 bubbly.

Dress code idea: go for the party atmosphere with summer dresses and sunhats.

Catch the rays in Valle and Vik’s sunshine yellow Breezy sundress.

Price £395 – 100% silk sandwashed satin with two side pockets. Also available in vibrant coral and Yves Klein blue.

Keep up the sunshine theme with La Soleil Cloche sun hat by And They Loved Hats. Price £270 – soft yellow natural straw with a versatile fold back ivory under brim featuring a high crown trimmed with contrast ivory bow.

Wedges are the best high-heeled shoes to wear in the garden.  Cristina Neon High Wedge sandal Price £200 by Zaccy’s (who are currently Shortlisted in our EM Design Awards – vote now!).

Complete the look with a vintage pair of Christian Dior gold sunglasses.

Price £310.

Balcony Enclosure

Not as much room to party but you can still create a chic atmosphere on the Balcony Enclosure. Dress up the table with candles and party confetti. Bring out nibbles and cool cocktails.

Dress code idea: Relaxed but chic in a loose maxi dress or jumpsuit.
