Royal Ascot is the main race of the English horse show, owned by

Her Majesty The Queen, where the British aristocracy dictate rules

of bon-ton. Exclusive as much as a royal wedding, the rules to

participate refer mainly to clothes to wear: the Ascot style, indeed.

 

If in 800, when the race was set up, the dress code was implicit in

the prestige of the event, and especially in the standard of elegance

that existed in the Victorian age’s high society, today the website

www.Ascot.co.uk provides a detailed guide to its future guests,with

pictures and directions on where to go to make purchases, to avoid

possible embarrassment at the time of “passage through the turnstiles”.

According to the prestige of the area there is a scale of rigour, at the

top there is the Royal Enclosure, which requires gentleman to wear

stylish daily outfits, black or gray, and, banning any kind of headscarf,

impose absolutely tie or bow tie. The hat must be snugly and it’s

allowed to remove it only in few carefully selected locations. Essential,

of course, the lace-black shoe. Seatting a bit far from the real, the

Grandstand Admission zone deletes the requirement to wear

a hat and allows you to show clothes with lighter tones and typically

English prints and patterns . The last alternative is the Silver Ring:

no official dress code, but an endless series of prohibitions, no”fancy

dresses” or clothing with promotional purposes,banned imitations

as well as the show of little value gadgets. The Royal Ascot will

run in Berkshire from 18th to 22nd June
