Everyday is Ladies' Day!

Is there a more stylish summer event than Royal Ascot? It would be hard to argue. Glamour, excitement and revelry make for a heady concoction alongside world-class racing. This year, Royal Ascot will host 12,000 racegoers on each of the five days of racing - and if you're one of the lucky ones able to attend, you'll want to make sure that you add to the fabulous quotient! 

Dressing for Royal Ascot requires personality and sophistication, all within the remit of the style guide. The rules for the Royal Enclosure are as follows:

• Dresses and skirts should be of modest length defined as falling just above the knee or longer.

• Dresses and tops should have straps of one inch or greater. Strapless, off the shoulder, halter neck and spaghetti straps are not permitted. Dresses and tops with sheer straps and sleeves are also not permitted.

• Jackets and pashminas may be worn. Tops and dresses underneath should still comply with the Royal Enclosure Dress Code. Midriffs must be covered.

• Trouser suits are welcome. They should be of full-length to the ankle and of matching material and colour.

• Jumpsuits are welcome. They should fall below the knee, with regulations matching that for dresses and tops.

• Hats should be worn; however, a headpiece which has a solid base of 4 inches (10cm) or more in diameter is acceptable as an alternative to a hat. Fascinators are not permitted.

Got all that?! Thankfully, we've curated our favourite pieces from Favourbrook's Spring/Summer 21 collection that we feel are perfect for attending Royal Ascot this year - jackets and dresses that embrace the sense of occasion by using luxurious fabrics and timeless silhouettes. Our Swing jackets are a great option for a lightweight outer layer (it is June in the UK after all!)

Cut in a three-quarter length tunic silhouette in expertly embellished Italian linen, our Swing coats feature three-quarter length bell sleeves that hark back to an era of timeless glamour. The collarless finish offers a relaxed but no less exquisite finish. For a longer silhouette, our Belgravia coat is a modern classic and perfect for summer thanks to the lightweight silk organza we've cut it in.

Finished with a beautiful geometric floral motif, this longer line silk organza style features a back button design with regular pockets and a single back vent. Complete with a working button cuff, the pale peach hue makes it a very sophisticated option for Royal Ascot, especially when worn with a tonal dress. Alternatively, we have also created the Belgravia coat in a vibrant Azure blue silk organza for a bolder look. 

Where dresses are concerned, less is often more when it comes to Royal Ascot so we've highlighted two beautiful styles in pale tones that will work with a variety of coat styles and colours. Sleek, minimal and confidently feminine, our Emily dress in coral red is cut from a beautiful crease-resistant linen with a lovely textural finish. With cropped sleeves and subtle belt detail, it is a very chic option for summer events, and pairs well with a variety of cropped blousons or longer coats.

Alternatively, if you'd prefer to make a splash with bolder hues, our Louise dress in cobalt blue is a sophisticated choice. Elegant and eye-catching in equal measure, it is cut from a vibrant azure blue silk satin. Featuring cropped sleeves and finished at the knee, it pairs well with tonal blues.
