WHAT TO WEAR FOR THE RACES 2022
The Races are back and we are so excited! Whether you’ve managed to bag tickets to the Grand National or Ladies Day at York races then there is no better reason to go all out and get dressed up in your most sophisticated ensemble. If you’re struggling for what to wear to the races, look no further! We have carefully selected all the race day outfits for 2022 that are sure to make you a winner. Whether you go for a classic midi dress, a floral maxi dress or a blazer and trouser co - ord we have everything you need - and not to forget the shoes and accessories to complete the look.
A midi dress is definitely a go to for a day at the races, it's effortlessly sophisticated and looks great with a pair of heels! If you’re ready to embrace summer and show off a bit of skin go for a strappy bodycon, but make sure to check the race day dress code because Ascot prefers shoulders covered and dress length just above the knee! For a little more coverage whilst achieving maximum glam go for a long sleeve midi dress.

Stiletto heels and grassy fields don’t really mix! A block heel or a pair of wedges are perfect for a day at the races so you aren’t awkwardly sinking into the grass. Spending a day in heels sounds painful too so make sure to reduce your usual heel height, a pair of low heel mules are ideal to avoid ending up barefoot!
What pulls an outfit together is the finishing touches, and for a day at the races you need them all! One of the best things about the races is the extravagant hats that are worn, but if that’s not really you a straw fedora will work. Just like at every other event we hope the sun is beaming down on us, so make sure you’re prepared with some sunnies and of course you’ll need a spacious bag to keep them in next to all your winnings.
